This Haunt brought the pain this year. We had a Newbie in our group to really see the impact a World Class Haunt can have on the unsuspecting. 2018 at Field of Screams brought laughs, screams, dirty knees and some real world tears and fright. I often forget how extreme these Haunted Attractions have become since we have become so desensitized by going through so many each year. But Field of Screams had a good friend of ours calling it Hell on Earth. Seeing her break down like that really brought it all back on why we love this stuff so much. So to start, Stacy, I am very sorry to have you quiver in fright and tears. But you really made me realize why we love this kind of entertainment. You'll be OK!
Lets start this Review with some of the new features at Field of Screams! They added a few 5 minute escape rooms that will add to your night out.
Now will continue on to the improved Nocturnal Wasteland.
Last year, Nocturnal Wasteland added a gigantic walk way that took you above the Hayride and integrated it together. I have never seen a Haunted Trail take you to these heights. Walking in and out of various scenes and great props along the way. We think this year they added some cool new scenes and props. Do not worry, that gate will not slam you to the floor while impaling you. The only negative thing we can say about this attraction is lack of actors. It felt a little long between scares and there was not a whole lot of places for them to hide and really get the scream out of you. That being said, it is still a very fun walk through. Just really not the best at Field of Screams. Lets get to the scoring.
As you can see, Nocturnal Wasteland took a little bit of a dive when it came to Actors and Fear Factor. But you can also see that it is very original. There are zero walk through attractions that take you a good 20 feet in the air. Lets get to the overall rating for Nocturnal Wasteland.
Now! We move onto our Favorite Attraction of the year so far! Lets talk about Frightmare Asylum.
