My husband, teenage son and I went on Saturday night to see this big scarey event. We were so disappointed in it. We ended up waiting in long lines and getting extremely dusty for what we thought was a really weak "event". A few dressed up characters jump out and yell to try to scare you here and there. Glad we were given tickets to attend. Would have been really, really disappointed if we had paid to go to it. Certainly not worth $20.00 per person, and definitely not worth $30 a person to get the "express lane" tickets! We really couldn't figure out what the big deal was. We wouldn't recommend it.

We went Saturday night with our kids and the area is on the dirt lot of the fairgrounds. I breathed in dust for about 2 hours and the next day I woke up with a terrible sore throat and cough and I felt like I smoked a pack of cigarettes (as a former smoker I know what that feels like). Not a healthy place to be and not worth the money!!

Don't miss out on the discussion!
