Organization was terrible. The scavenger hunt was only for people staying overnight, they didn't bother to include people who were just there for the night or plan any kind of alternate activity for those people. Activities were poorly planned, late and there was little clear direction on where to go or what to do. Not scary, not fun. Boring.

I would almost go so far as to call this event a scam. Do not pay for this! It was from start to finish one of the most disorganized events that I have been to. Most of the stuff advertised on the site didn't actually happen. Games were set up but never organized to occur, there was no "live entertainment" in the mess hall, no bon-fire, no beer garden, etc. The pictures on the website are not representative of the event. The one thing that was okay was the actors costumes. Most of which were pretty cool/convincing. However, in lieu of actually being scary, the actors just berated people and yelled and swore in their face a lot; I mean F-Bombs etc. in every single sentence! I really have nothing against swearing in an adults only event, but it was definitely a crutch for not actually being scary. There was a slip and slide that they had us all report to, then it was never turned on. The tug of war was planned and then never started. Customers were leaving in droves and the only saving grace was a customer (Named himself Big Cheese) who took it upon himself to organize the tug of war and some sing along songs. Seriously, this unpaid impromptu camp director gave us more fun in 15 minutes, making stuff up off the top of his head, than this whole expensive "for-profit company" provided all night. This was to the point of almost being so bad it was good. The only thing positive I got out of this was that talking to some of the other patrons, there are other companies out there that really do this MUCH better, and I suggest going to them for your experience. DEFINITELY don't waste your money on this travesty of an event.

The actors and on site staff were great people who were left to deal with the ire of the crowds who were rightfully upset about their experience. It was poorly managed, no communication regarding cancelled events until we were already through the door, and little to no contingency plans. Of the 200ish people who arrived initially, only 20ish people were left by morning. The vast majority just left.

Didn't do the overnight, but nothing really happened, so we left around 11pm. We saw other people, including campers also leaving.

Literally everyone left, not worth the money. Not scary, not organized, and not fun... Definitely do not recommend

Awful organization. Not as advertised. Apparently the beer garden and band cancelled and there was no backup plan for either or perhaps neither existed. This could've been so great with just a little more organization and thoughtful execution. Also I find it odd that the facebook group suddenly disappeared. they don't want negative feedback - they should've put more thought into their event.

I bought this for my 18 year old and her friend. They had fun. Enjoyed twister and one actually ate a worm. Probably geared towards younger people. I think there may have been a big problem with organization. No back up plan for a band when they cancelled. Entry was an issue. No bonfire because of burn ban (probably normal for this time of year). My main issue is that they were assigned a tent. This tent turned out to be coed and there were two guys who were creeps. Security came and talked to them but only because they had harassed a couple of the female employees. I think female only rooms should be an option. I dont think they thought they could request a room change and I didnt think of this issue. All in all they had fun and thats what is important but I would never buy it again just because now I worry about the safety of being put in a room with unknown men who obviously had behavior issues..

Do not waste your money on this pathetic excuse for an event. It wasn't scary in the slightest, they were completely unorganized, there was no band as advertised, there was no after party beer tickets, their "dinner" was lettuce coated in vinegar with cheap undercooked spaghetti noodles, meat sauce from a can died green and two pieces of untoasted, unbuttered wonder bread. The instructions for the "scavenger hunt" were completely unclear and for most of it no one had any idea what they were doing. There was no air conditioning as advertised on the hottest night of the year and they put us in, wait for it, metal boxcars. It was advertised we would be in tents, however that clearly fell through, just like my hopes for this event. Their "scare team" was a handful of badly dressed people whose idea of being scary is to walk around cursing. I live in Portland, I don't need to pay money to be sworn at by badly dressed people, I can just go to the bus stop. You know it's bad when they have to play an outdated scary movie at midnight to try and keep people's attention, because literally everyone was leaving in swarms. Don't do it. It's a waste.

Was nothing as described. Utterly disorganized, disgustingly cold dinner, terrible actors, and staff that could care less.
