Haunt Name: The Haunted Forest at Grand Farms
Review Team: Team Terror Techies
Review Date: October 24, 2020

Final Score: 7.42

Cast (15%)
1: Did it seem like there were enough actors? (20%) 8.67
2: How believable / convincing were the actors? (30%) 5.33
Actors did stay in character but there was little interaction to determine what role they were playing – a lot of menacing, silent types.
3: How interactive were the actors? (20%) 5.67
4: How creatively & appropriately did they use dialogue? (15%) 4.33
The evil queen interaction was kind of flat. We were expecting her to tell us a story or to curse us but she just offered us drinks that we declined. Then we stood around in silence for a bit until we decided to continue on.
5: Was there a good variety of characters? (15%) 6.33
Cast Score: 6.07

Costuming (15%)
1: How complete / finished did the costumes appear to be? (15%) 7.67
There was inconsistency with the time period of costuming and modern steel props were used rather than period weaponry. It would have been nice to see the hero characters stand out.
2: How creative / detailed were the costumes? (25%) 7
It was dificult to make out costume details. From what we were able to see, everything was good but nothing stood out.
3: Was their makeup creative? Detailed? Realistic? (20%) 7.67
4: How effectively did they use masks (if used)? (15%) 7.67
5: How appropriate were the costumes for their scenes & themes? (25%) 9
Costuming Score: 7.84
Customer Service (10%)
1: How easy was it to locate the attraction, park and navigate the premises? (25%) 10
2: How safe was the attraction? (30%)

3: How professional, helpful and friendly were the staff members? (25%)

4: How easy was it to find their information before you arrived? 10
Customer Service Score: 9.7
Atmosphere (10%)
1: How obvious was it that you were at a haunted house before entering? (60%) 9
2: How well did the atmosphere prepare you for what you experienced inside? (40%) 8.67
Atmosphere Score: 8.87

Special Effects (15%)
1: How effective were the sound effects? (20%) 8.67
We loved the noisy woods sound effects. It was excellent for the environment and helped fill up scenes. We would have liked a variety of other sounds added to a few of the props.
2: How creative / original were the scenes & props? (20%) 8
3: How well were the scenes detailed? (20%) 7
It was difficult to make out most detail because of the lighting.
4: How well did they achieve & maintain the suspension of disbelief? (25%) 6.67
The spinning vortex seemed out of place where it was or could have used a bit more to it. The disco-lights across the path also seemed misplaced. They didn’t have any logic to it but it could have been easily fixed with an actor stationed in the area.
5: How effective were the SFX at providing scares / entertainment? (15%) 8
Special Effects Score: 7.6
Theme (5%)
1: Could you tell what the theme was? (30%) 9
2: How well was the theme carried throughout the attraction/s? (50%) 8.33
A lot of witchcraft, suggestive or outright, material with no significant payoff. We had to look back though the website to pick up on the story. It would be nice for the characters to talk more on the evil queen or minions.
3: How well does their location authenticate the theme? (20%) 9
Theme Score: 8.67
Scare Factor (15%)
1: How scary was it? (30%) 4.33
Try to add more tension and suspense. The sound FX were there to start but the quiet cast was too easy to pass up in the dark.
2: How well did they provide scares to the entire group? (15%) 7
3: How predictable were the scares? (25%) 4.67
It was fairly predictable to tell when something was going to pop out.
4: How well did they provide a wide variety of scares? (15%) 6.33
Most of the scares were jump scares. It would have been nice to see a wider variety.
5: How strong was the ending / finale? (15%) 5.33
The finale was solid but it was also empty. A couple more actors are a distraction scare could have made it stronger.
Scare Factor Score: 5.27
Entertainment & Value (15%)
1: How satisfied are you with the entertainment received during the main attraction/s? (30%) 7.33
2: How satisfied are you with the entertainment that’s available with the ticket price, excluding the main attraction/s? (25%) 5.67
There was line entertainment but there wasn’t anything else outside the attraction that made you want to linger.
3: How appropriate is/are the ticket price/s? (30%) 8.67
There was a decent duration for the price of the haunt.
4: Have they effectively used their available space? (15%) 8
