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!
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!
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!
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!
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!
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!
