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

Theme (5%)
1: Could you tell what the theme was? (30%) 8.34
All the themes were pretty well done, Noah’s Ark really did not fit the description on the website. It was just Noah’s Ark. My advice would be to make it more of a cult theme. With people wearing animal heads would definitely make it more creepy.
2: How well was the theme carried throughout the attraction/s? (50%) 8.5
Themes were well executed in most of the haunts except Noah’s.
3: How well does their location authenticate the theme? (20%) 8.04
Theme Score: 8.36
Scare Factor (15%)
1: How scary was it? (30%) 5.38
2: How well did they provide scares to the entire group? (15%) 5.4
It is hard to target the whole group , when there are 20+ people in a group its just not really possible. When we were able to be away from the larger groups the scare were better but that was a handful of times.
3: How predictable were the scares? (25%) 5.57
4: How well did they provide a wide variety of scares? (15%) 5.09
The variety was descent. Screams, growlsm snarls, animatronics, stares, air blasts provided a multitude of scares. However nothing above and beyond the norm.
5: How strong was the ending / finale? (15%) 1.09
None of the haunts had a true finish, you just pretty much walked out with no big scare at the end. The only haunt to have a slight ending was the cremation room at the end of Bio Fear. That was more of an effect than a scare.
Scare Factor Score: 5.9
Entertainment & Value (15%)
1: How satisfied are you with the entertainment received during the main attraction/s? (30%) 7
The haunts were enjoyable and the quality was good in most, but the lack of characters and scares held it back from what it could have been. We have not been to Phantom Fright Night in about 7-8 years and there was not too much new and different from what we remembered. Some new haunts or updated effects would definitely help out. More of a theme to Noah’s ark would have helped a lot.
2: How satisfied are you with the entertainment that’s available with the ticket price, excluding the main attraction/s? (25%) 10
3: How appropriate is/are the ticket price/s? (30%) 8
Tickets are pretty standard price. Although I do not see anyone making all the haunts without purchasing a RIP pass. Excluding the-D theater…highly disappointing and I wish we would not have wasted almost 45 minutes for. The additional pricing of the escape room is average as well, but the escape room was subpar.
4: Have they effectively used their available space? (15%) 7.5
Entertainment & Value Score: 8.13
