I mentioned what a great gift Escape Room in a Box Flashback would be in a recent YouTube video and I received inquiries about other gift ideas so I made a quick video with some suggestions:
Fear the Woods is a haunted attraction consisting of 3 attractions in a beautiful location in Stockbridge. They asked us to complete the attractions in a specific order. First we began with a walk through haunted attraction near the front that had many twists and turns. The second was a fun zombie laser experience outdoors. We were divided into small groups and set loose to “kill” as many zombies as possible without dying ourselves. This was actually my favorite attraction because it was so unique and fun. The third attraction required a bus trip to the entrance where we meet a gatekeeper that divided the bus load into smaller groups to walk through. There were many different themes throughout the trail in the woods. We exited the trail into the parking lot.
They did a great job with crowd flow. I especially enjoyed the monsters in the midway area, but everyone was clearly working very hard to scare guests throughout. One thing they seemed to do more here than other events I’ve experienced is mess with your balance and footing, so be careful and watch your step. Thank you Fear the Woods for having me out to see your event.

Netherworld is a haunted attraction in a category all it’s own. This professional haunt consists of two walk through haunts, midway, gift store and a unique museum. It’s now located next to Netherworld Escape, so you can also book an escape game prior to experiencing the Haunt if you’d like.
Netherworld is an impressive collection of elaborate animatronics, props, sets and several live actors. There isn’t really a storytelling aspect to the larger attraction, it’s more of a massive, overwhelming amount of craziness coming at you. I was physically exhausted by the end from the adrenaline rush of it all.
I took a short break in the midway to take photos with monsters, play in the foam and play the mini escape game before heading to the second haunt.
This year the theme for the additional haunted walk through was dinosaurs. It was definitely a more focused theme than the larger haunt, but still not especially story heavy. The last creature was my favorite.
I honestly found myself more in awww of the magnificent creatures in Netherworld than frightened. I walked through smiling and wide-eyed like a child in a candy shop, throughly overwhelmed by the amount of awesomeness surrounding me. Occasionally a special effect or flying creature would catch me off guard and make me squeal, but overall it didn’t leave me with nightmares.
The museum on the other hand did give me an uneasy feeling. I was genuinely frightened by something in there that still stuck with me days later. I highly recommend experiencing it.
I like the new location a lot. There is parking across the street.
Overall, I highly recommend experiencing Netherworld. It’s worth a trip for those haunt enthusiasts that travel around the country seeing events.
Thank you Netherworld for having me out to see your event! I had an amazing time!
