It was closed and dried out on the 8th when I was there, if you're referring to the log flume.

Alright everyone, thoughts on the houses this year? We're heading down this weekend and we're definitely looking to check a few of them out.

My assumption is that Blackout, Chamber of Horrors and Trick or Treat still suck and Blood on the Bayou, Cornstalkers, Tourist Trap and Urgent Scare are the ones to focus on. Am I correct in this?

It's going to depend on what you are looking for. The haunts are never actually scary. Themeing is great but not scary.

I skipped Blackout, Cornstalkers, and Grave Walkers (which is apparently a maze with a line now?), but found all of the others to be up to par for a Cedar Pair Haunt - IE great artistry but no actual scares. Of course, I made it a point to be at the rear of every group I was in for the sole purpose of laughing at those who did get scared. I actually quite enjoyed all the work that went into Chamber of Horrors; it was tough telling a few of the wax statues from actual people. Blood on the Bayou was new to me and not all that impressive, but I definitely enjoyed Tourist Trap, Trick or Treat, and Urgent Scare.

Blackout is actually pretty interesting. Last year they had a story behind blackout. Not sure if its the same or if they changed it for this year. Cornstalkers is probably my favorite from doing them in the past.

I recommend getting the skeleton key room pass. Age of darkness is pretty crazy. Some of the others are cool as well.
