PURE TERROR SCREAM PARK 2020 REVIEW!

 

Welcome back to another edition of Halloween Haunts 365.com. Today we continue our Haunt Tour 2020 with another John Review coming out of Pure Terror Scream Park located in Monroe, New York and is a Guinness World Record holder for the Longest Haunted House Scream Park in the World. Let us see what John had to say! 

Welcome back to the next Review for the 2020 season, today I will be reviewing Pure Terror Scream Park in Monroe, New York.

My friends and I pulled into the parking lot at 8 and we noticed that the parking lot was pretty empty but that changed really fast out of no where. At least 30 cars full of people started pulling into the lot. At Pure Terror tickets are a bit steep, But it’s worth it. General Admission is $50 and VIP is $80 and you do have to purchase your tickets online. After getting our temperatures taken, going through security and getting our tickets we were on our way to the attractions. Now I would recommend getting VIP later in the season just because this place does get really busy. We were in line for roughly 45 minutes and the line was pretty boring you were just walking on a poorly lit trail, I remember last year that they had a projector going and actors in the line but unfortunately they didn’t have any of that this year. Now Pure terror has 10 attractions to offer you and they have actually been featured in Guinness World Records for the past 5 years in a row.  The attractions are also one after the other so unfortunately you won’t be able to choose what attractions you want do but really is no big deal. Now let’s get into the attractions. I am also going in the order of houses based on the website not the actual order they were in. 

First up is Camp Killmore which is new for 2020. This attraction is based on Jason Voorhees. This maze had amazing Scenes but the one thing that I personally didn’t like was that this attraction was really really really short we were in that attraction for a total of 2 minutes. I should mention also that some of the attractions here are extremely short like under 5 minutes. But, there are three attractions that are decently lengthy here. This was your basic Jason trail, decent acting but this one attraction didn’t seem to have that many actors, I want to say maybe a handful. My group and I saw Jason once in the whole trail but you see a lot of his victims. This trail was pretty gory and the lighting here was well done. Let's get to the scoring!

Overall:

Up next is Nightmare Factory. This is the second new attraction for 2020. This maze was one of my favorites due to the fact that it was based on Freddy Krueger. There were a lot of actors, and it was pretty decent in length. I say we were in there for close to 10 minutes. One of my favorite scenes in this attraction was were one Freddy was hidden inside a boiler and got his first scare, then when your turn the corner boom there he is again. Lighting in this house is what your should expect from a Freddy house not too dark but light enough to be able to see everything. Let us get to the scoring!

Overall:

Third up is Legends of Horror which added new Horror icons for 2020. This attraction is hands down one of my favorite haunted houses for 2020. This attraction featured your favorite Horror movie icons like Art the clown, Ghostface, Jason, Regan, Freddy, Leatherface, Etc. My two favorite scenes in the house had to be the Ghostface and Art the clown scene as they were well done and the actors in the room were extremely amazing in these roles. Once again this attraction was not too short but it was pretty short it was roughly under 5 minutes. I hope for next year they expand on this attraction and add more killers, and more scenes to make it longer. I didn’t like the Freddy and Jason scenes in this house as I believe that they use the same scenes from the previous Freddy and Jason attraction. Let us get to the scoring!

Overall:

The next attraction is Terror Under The Big Top which is the last attraction that featured new stuff for the 2020 season. This attraction is one of my two favorite carnival attractions next to Reapers Revenge. I liked how interactive this maze was. The floors and even the walls were moving in scene. The actors in here were amazing I loved how interactive they were as well. Attraction was pretty decent in length and it was also very colorful in this attraction. I usually don’t like carnival attractions but Pure Terror is one of the places that do it right. I also like that the actors here aren’t annoying like in other carnival haunts. Let see those scores!

Overall:

Next up is Resurrection Cemetery. This is your basic run of the mill cemetery trail but the one thing that really made me go wow in this attraction is that they had a giant waterfall that you were able to walk under in the middle of the attraction and the actor that was working in the waterfall was amazing. This is one of the three longer attractions here running roughly around 13 minutes. The scenes were well done and Actors were pretty decent. Lets see those scores!

Overall:

The fifth attraction at Pure Terror is called Evil Harvest. This is actually a pretty decent corn maze. I would compare it to the likes of Scarecrow Revenge at Bates Motel. The actors in this attraction were having a lot of fun in here and they had a lot of opportunities to come out and scare the guests. The maze was decent, we were in there for about 8-10 minutes. Besides being filled with actors you can definitely tell that Evil Harvest was also filled up with amazing props and scenes. Lets wrap it up with some scoring!

Overall:

After Evil Harvest comes The Crypt which is one of my least favorites here. The Crypt is based on vampires. Which now that I think about it, a lot of haunted attractions really don’t have vampires at their attractions. Scenes were pretty good in here but not a lot of actors and once again this attraction was pretty short, it was definitely under 5 minutes. There’s not a lot to talk about for this maze as it was pretty dark in here and it wasn’t really that memorable of a maze. But I will give them respect for having a full blown Vampire maze. Here is our scoring of The Crypt.
Overall:
Next up is The Coven. This attraction is a little weird to me because it’s supposed to be all about witches which it is but I feel like it would’ve worked better as a Medieval times attraction. I loved how the actors played their parts and how they worked with props they were given. This attraction was definitely short, But because of the actors and how nice the scenery was it felt like you were in there for a while. Now I couldn’t tell if it was a snake prop or something along those lines but whatever it was it was one of the best animal props I’ve seen in a while. Here is where it comes in at!
Overall:

The second to last attraction here is called Pure Darkness. This is possible the worst maze here at Pure terror. The maze was pretty long. This attraction had 3 different actors in it and they were definitely good at what they were doing but for me personally, I don’t find blackout mazes any good. they are just lame and boring anymore. But, if I had to compare it. I would say it was a lot like pitch black from Reapers Revenge. You had moving floors, one section you are walking on empty soda bottles and it sounded like bones crunching. 
Overall:

The last attraction here at Pure Terror is named Desecration. This is hands down the best maze here next to Legends of horror and Terror under the big top. This is a church based attraction and everything was amazing about it. The actors were the best, Lighting was fantastic, scenery was amazing. The facade was beautiful as you can see in the pictures. This attraction was roughly 15 minutes and I loved every second about it. I wish that the other attractions here were as long as this one but I understand why this one was the longest as there was a lot going on in this attraction.
Overall: 
Our Final Overall Score of PureTerror Screampark!


I definitely do recommend coming to Pure Terror Screampark because all of the attractions including Pure darkness is good in their own ways. Thank you for reading!!
