Special Note for 2018:

We’ve changed the way we give scores for this year. We are now using a weighted average that puts more emphasis on certain features of the haunt (IE: “How scary was it,” versus “Does the haunt’s location authenticate their theme”). That said, these scores should NOT be used in comparisons to previous seasons. We appreciate your understanding. Thanks and Happy Haunting! –The Scare Factor

Attraction Info

Haunt Name: Haunted Field of Screams
Review Team: Team Hauntarama
Review Date: October 4, 2018

Final Score: 8.13

Cast (15%)
1: Did it seem like there were enough actors? (20%) 6.88
Condemned and Paintball both would have benefited from more actors. Particularly the end of Paintball, which was nearly devoid of anyone at all during our long walk back to the courtyard.
2: How believable / convincing were the actors? (30%) 7.38
Again, Paintball received a low score here due to the repetitiveness of the scenes, the lack of detail on the zombies, and the unbelievability of the zombies before on the walk to the paintball wagon.
3: How interactive were the actors? (20%) 8.38
4: How creatively & appropriately did they use dialogue? (15%) 7.75
5: Was there a good variety of characters? (15%) 7.75
Cast Score: 7.59

2: How creative / detailed were the costumes? (25%) 8.35
3: Was their makeup creative? Detailed? Realistic? (20%) 7.81

9.13

As discussed in the review, there was a dearth of information available.
Customer Service Score: 8.31
Atmosphere (10%)
1: How obvious was it that you were at a haunted house before entering? (60%) 9.25
2: How well did the atmosphere prepare you for what you experienced inside? (40%) 8
Atmosphere Score: 8.75

Special Effects (15%)
1: How effective were the sound effects? (20%) 6.94
There weren’t many sound effects, which acceptable for all of the attractions but CarnEvil.
2: How creative / original were the scenes & props? (20%) 7.56
3: How well were the scenes detailed? (20%) 7.63
4: How well did they achieve & maintain the suspension of disbelief? (25%) 7.5

Special Effects Score: 7.38
Theme (5%)
1: Could you tell what the theme was? (30%) 8.31
2: How well was the theme carried throughout the attraction/s? (50%) 8
3: How well does their location authenticate the theme? (20%) 8.44
Theme Score: 8.18
Scare Factor (15%)
1: How scary was it? (30%) 7.81
2: How well did they provide scares to the entire group? (15%) 8.25
3: How predictable were the scares? (25%) 7.5
Given the repetativeness of the scenes in Paintball, it was scored substantially lower than the rest, bringing this total down.
4: How well did they provide a wide variety of scares? (15%) 7.38
5: How strong was the ending / finale? (15%) 7.69
Again, Paintball brings the score total down, as there was no finale and an almost empty walk back to the courtyard.
Scare Factor Score: 7.72
Entertainment & Value (15%)
1: How satisfied are you with the entertainment received during the main attraction/s? (30%) 7.5
2: How satisfied are you with the entertainment that’s available with the ticket price, excluding the main attraction/s? (25%) 7.5
3: How appropriate is/are the ticket price/s? (30%) 8
4: Have they effectively used their available space? (15%) 7.69
The paintball scenes could have been slightly bigger, giving those of us on the beginning and end guns more time to shoot.
Entertainment & Value Score: 7.68
