13 Fears Haunted House 2010 Review

Genre: Haunted House
Location: 121 East Joe B hall
Shepherdsville, KY 40165
Runtime: 15 min
Website: www.13fears.com

This will be the second year 13 Fears is operating. I had heard from other haunts how good the acting was, but everything I had experienced was very amateur and something you would expect from an average home haunt. There’s nothing that really stands out to make this haunt worth $13.

This is City Blood’s 2010 review of 13 Fears.

What’s Good About The Haunt?
13 Fears has some creepy elements. This includes the first room which has you guessing what door to open. There’s also a dark maze which can be quite confusing especially if another group is with you. Scenes include a bedroom with a door hidden behind a dressar, Michael Myers victim’s room, Freddy Krueger’s boiler room and more. The majority of scenes are typical of a haunted house.

What’s Bad About The Haunt?
$13 is an outrageous price to charge for a haunt of this quality. There are top rated haunts in the country that charge only a little more than what 13 Fears is charging. Additionally I had to wait nearly 30 minutes because the actors were on break. This is inexcusable considering how much they are charging. There are a few scenes here and there that are a little creepy, but nothing that will have people talking. 13 Fears is an amateur haunt and should be avoided.

Customer Service:
I had to wait 30 minutes because the actors were on break. The line I was in only had 50 people yet the haunt treated it as if there were 1,000 people in line. For $13 you shouldn’t have to deal with actors being on their break. There are also no concessions available on site. The customer service is pretty poor.

Final Thoughts:
I was really looking forward to 13 Fears since I kept hearing how great the actors were. Unfortunately I walked away dissapointed. The scenes are cheaply put together and there’s nothing the haunt has that makes it worth $13. If you are in Louisville or Shepherdsville, Kentucky make sure and visit another haunt besides 13 Fears. This place is price gouging their customers.
