That is a fair review of Darkness. However we didn't open 1 hour and 30 minutes late it was 7:40...trust me I know I was stressed about it. Either way it was hard to scare people because of everyone checking out the detail, that is a fair and accurate assesment. And you are right not all the actors knew what to do or knew the rolls. That again is a fair and honest statement. In fact many of the actors got pretty confused why all the people decided to just stand around and look at stuff. I told them because they are 'HAUNTERS'. LOL

This October that won't be the case, nor will it be next March.

Great review of the show in general! Good job!

Great review Adam. It is so nice to see that the event was so nicely documented. I am fairly sure that the haunt did open that much later as I looked at my watch just before we entered the haunt cause I wanted to time it and it was 9:25PM. On the plus side, I also know for a fact that it took just under 1 hour to tour!! WOW

It took about 45 minutes to tour The Darkness and Terror Visions, but some of that was waiting behind groups of people taking pictures or looking at sets. So the entire tour was more like 25-35 minutes if you toured by yourself or with a small group. Either way it was a lengthy experience.

The Darkness with the que line is about 27,000 square feet. Upstairs uses about 10,000 square feet, downstairs about 9,000 square feet. New building uses about 7000 square feet. This is all rough I'm not sure. But I will find out.
