2014 Horror Hall Review
11 East Poplar St. Nanticoke, PA
Horror Hall is a yearly visit which has the potential to be one of the scariest, intense haunted attractions in the area. Horror Hall gives off a demented vibe of a twisted carnival attraction, from the moment you enter the attraction to the end and has scenes/sets which effectively attack the senses. Most of the scenes and sets found in Horror Hall are custom made and not found in any other haunted attraction. There is great detail found throughout the attraction and we never really spent much time examining the level of detail until this visit. The soundtracks found throughout this attraction set the mood for each scene, build fear, tension and at times paranoia as we made our way through dark corridors, tight spaces and highly detailed sets. Horror Hall has made several upgrades this year including an effective prison scene, which make for an excellent haunted attraction. Horror Hall has been a yearly visit for the past several years and hopefully the attraction will continue to find ways to evolve, entertain and maintain its level of quality.
Horror Hall can get very crowded, as the attraction is popular and established in Northeast PA. Wait times are not too bad as there is entertainment provided prior to entering the attraction. Various movie clips, and Michael Jackson’s Thriller video are shown in the waiting area as guests prepare to enter the attraction. The entrance to the attraction itself, a walk up a flight of stairs does a good job at setting the carnival-like, twisted atmosphere of the haunt. The walls are covered in bright, psychedelic fluorescent paintings of clowns, and the imagery is distracting, and creepy. Horror Hall is designed in maze-like manner, in which scenes are separated by dark corridors which are filled with actors who engage in various startle/drop scares. Each corridor is unique, some are lit brightly to represent a castle theme, and others are dark and ominous. The scenes themselves are detailed and diverse. The swamp scene which featured an insane actor who jumped from various platforms is filled with fog, and distracting lighting which is impressive and scary to walk through. Horror Hall has a multitude of other unique scenes such as a hall of horror movie monsters scene(some of the monsters are very interactive), creative seance scene, a very realistic morgue, a new prison set, a disorientating red laser room, a slanted room filled with dead bodies, a class carnival spinning tube room, detailed werewolf/outdoors scene, aggressive chainsaw scene and our favorite a zombie infested movie theater. The attraction does a great job at mixing in actors with props and the diversity of each set makes the attraction feel as though it is an adventure through different, horrific and disturbing scenes. The soundtrack of the attraction is phenomenal as the sounds and music found in each scene are unique to the scene and set the tone for each room. Horror Hall’s set designs are some of the best, and each set is unique from the other. The creativity, and uniqueness of each set made us forget at times that we were in a building as the sets are so well constructed. The swamp set is realistic and outdoor scenes actually feel as though they are outside, rather within the confines of the indoor attraction.
Horror Hall’s set design, the endless dark corridors, and creative custom designed sets make for an entertaining, and scary haunted attraction experience. However, there is a lack of actual acting in the attraction as many of the actors focus on achieving jump or startle scares. The costume design of the actors found in the attraction is well done but the actors don’t exactly always “act”. They are very in your face, loud and intense but seem to back off when guests walk by and don’t exactly engage people in the detailed scenes. Actors who yell, make loud noises and pop out of nowhere are only scary if they are complimented with actors who tell a story. We didn't encounter many actors who actually spoke, they did a good job at scaring guests, followed people etc. but did not actually seem to be participants in each scene. The actors are very aggressive, some will jump from planks, hang from high places, violently strike walls, objects and props, and will get very close to encourage fear. If Horror Hall would include segments or sets which include more interactive/speaking actors this would improve the attraction and engage guests within each scene. Startle or jump scare loose effectiveness if they are not complimented with more direct or interactive acting, and this is one suggestion we would make to improve the attraction. Also, if you go to Horror Hall each year as we do, you will likely see many of the same attractions. However, the level of detail, the use of darkness, fog, lighting and misdirection is still phenomenal. Furthermore, the new additions to the attraction are well done, and Horror Hall’s set design set it apart from other indoor attractions. Horror Hall’s sets are designed to make guests forget they are actually in a building and effective/creative/dark design coupled with a high quality sound track promotes an atmosphere of fear.
The Final Word
Horror Hall was a great time this year and the set designs are phenomenal. The attraction itself is not that long, (15-20 minutes), but is a quality attraction that incorporates great design, and high levels of creativity. Horror Hall features some of the most unique set pieces and designs in any haunted attraction we have visited as much of the attraction is custom built. The attraction has been in existence for 30 years and the design of the attraction does not feel complacent or old. Upgrades to the design of the attraction are made each year and this year featured new scenes and enhanced sound. We enjoyed the new prison scene as well as our old favorites such as the zombie filled movie theater. We hope that Horror Hall continues to grow and begins to incorporate more interactive/aggressive actors. The design of the attraction is impressive, and if the attraction was able to allow the actors to become more aggressive and interactive, the Horror Hall experience would be taken to the next level.
