Welcome back to my first review of the 2020 season. Today I’ll be reviewing Fright Haven in Connecticut. I previously visited here back in 2019 for their Saints Patrick’s day Event which gave me a general idea of what to expect from the normal season. Funny story about Fright Haven before I start the review, This haunt was actually the last haunted Attraction I went to because the day after I went, Corona happened and forced people to shut down, so I guess you can say I went out with a bang. Now let’s get into the review!
My friends and I pulled up to the parking lot around 9ish and I was impressed how how big the building is and how much room they had to play with. Tickets are pretty Reasonable, $27 for general admission, $40 vip, and $60 for front of line tickets. Fright Haven has one main attraction but it’s split up into three different Walkthroughs. I also want to give a shout-out to the staff over there because they have some of the best staff so that gives them extra credit in my books.
After scanning our tickets, getting our temperature checked, ETC we were finally able to start with the Attraction. The second we got in line they had about 4 line actors which were amazing and pretty creepy looking. The Clown wearing the swat armor was definitely one of the best actors working the lines tonight. We waited in line for about 20ish minutes which wasn’t bad especially since it’s their second week in operations for this season. The Scenes here are beautiful I remember waiting in line and looking up to see the first Facade and instantly fell in love. Now let’s get into the attractions:
The first part of the attraction was named PsychoWard 13:
Like I stated above the facade for this house was beautiful. So this is your basic asylum/hospital. Lighting was very well done here and the scenes were pretty well done, the one scene that sticks out to me is when your walking around the reception desk and one of the actors came sliding out under the desk and gave me a pretty good startle. Unfortunately though because of COVID I only counted 6 actors in the Psycho ward which is unfortunate cause you could definitely see where actors were going to be. Which some of the scares would’ve been pretty cool, I believe one scare would’ve involved beds. I love how they got the smells flowing through the house, You smelled poop, rotten food, and I believe vomit. This part of the attraction was pretty short I want to say we were in there for 7 minutes. This attraction I rate.
