Scarehouse after my experiences there last year and the year before, I decided that it wasn't fair to rip on it so much if I wasn't going to go this year. Then I found out that my friend MaryAnne has NEVER been to Scarehouse! How fair is that then? That we tell people what a rip-off the place is, yet MA has never been there and I didn't go this year?
So we went!
And it wasn't so bad!
There is no way that it is worth the full price. It isn't worth a long wait, either. But my advice is to go on a Wednesday or Thursday or Sunday night and get your ticket ahead of time. You can save money and time that way.
The place is 100% professional. There are three different themes. The last two, Rampage and Delirium 3D are pretty much the same as last year. Delirium is the whole "wear the 3D glasses" deal, which The Haunted Mine did so well, it is hard to go anywhere else and compare. The Mine did it better than any place I've ever seen. Delirium has nice art work, but it is nothing like the Mine.
Rampage is the best of the three because it is like being trapped in a dystopian state of rebellion against the government, or as they call it Scarehouse, The Director. I think that if Scarehouse just took this one theme, which works so very well and expanded it to make the whole attraction The Rampage, they would have something really excellent and unique.
As it stands, though, Scarehouse falls short, but it is worth the trip if you have the extra money.
What's Going On Here?
There are SO MANY wonderful book review blogs out there and I can't compete with them, that is for sure. So this is not a book review blog. This is just a way for me to organize what I have read so that I can be better at matching the right book to the right person. The blog title comes from the brilliant mind of the most talented woman who ever lived, Ms. Judy Garland. The full quote is, "Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of someone else." That is what I hope to do here and in ever aspect of my life.
