Had an absolutely amazing day today, so I thought I'd post my reviews for the scare mazes and zones!Altonville Mine Tours: Legend of the Skin Snatchers
This maze is absolutely amazing. The level of theming in this maze is unbelievable, and the story and actors were great too. Much much better than The Haunting of Molly Crowe, even though that was also a great maze. My only problem with it was that it was too short. Apparently you can be in there for a while, but even when we did the BTS, we were only in the actual maze itself for 10 mins, and we spent a lot longer in each room.
Overall rating: 8/10Sub Species: The End Games
Much better than last year for me, although I heard people say it was not as strong as it was last year. I felt like I got to experience more of it this year, and I spent much longer in the actual maze. They also did a much better job of splitting people up, and it was still absolutely terrifying. There was a new thing in the control room, which I won't spoil here, which made that scene/room a lot better. The actors were incredible, and some of the makeup and special effects used in this maze are so good. However, I do think that they could still add more to it as it doesn't feel like it matches with the theme, and you don't feel as if you are in a sewer.
Overall rating: 9/10Terror of the Towers: What Lies Within
Nah, it was fine. I just hated how much shorter it was than last year, and how it was way too easy to get lost. Maybe that's a good thing for some, but when there are people in there in standard AT uniform telling you where to go, it ruins the atmosphere a bit. Other than that, though, it is still fantastic. The theme is great and the actors do a great job, considering they can't touch you. It's just a shame that it was one of the strongest mazes, but now it's probably the weakest.
Overall Rating 6/10Freak Show
So much better than Dark Apocalypse and Nox Infernus. The actors were good, the theming and lighting was amazing. People were legitimately scared, even though the actors didn't have loud chainsaws and gory zombie makeup, which I thought was great.
Overall Rating: 8/10Dark Apocalypse
Best scare zone last year, but in comparison to Freak Show, this scare zone is nowhere near as good. It's good to see they've expanded the area a little bit, but the actors didn't do much this year, and they weren't making people as scared as they were last year. The music and lighting are amazing, but the theming is not great at all.
