13 Rooms of Doom at Little Farm On The River Campground is a haunt you probably haven’t heard of, but it’s one of the best values around. An inflatable black cat opens and closes its mouth and a concessions stand known as the Snack Shack serves a variety of food and refreshments.
Enter 13 Rooms of Doom if you dare. 13 Rooms of Doom reminds me of the haunted houses I grew up with. You won’t find many high tech props, but the actors are great and some of the scenes are pretty detailed. The rooms are tight and confining which makes customers feel like they’re trapped and they can’t escape. 13 Rooms of Doom uses low voltage power which makes the props very quiet and they use less electricity. Quite a few of the props use windshield wiper motors which we haven’t seen other haunts utilize.
13 Rooms of Doom has a plethora of rooms and some unique effects. You will see an endless hallway that goes on forever, but the most impressive is the demonic clown that pops up and is illuminated with a red light. It’s a pretty short haunt lasting only 6 and a half minutes, but it’s very action packed. You can’t really complain when it’s only $5 a ticket. This is the most reasonable haunt you’ll find, but it’s well worth the price of admission and then some.
13 Rooms of Doom has you entering a hospital/morgue with corpses that are ready to wake up. Clowns can be quite funny, but at 13 Rooms of Doom they’re terrifying. Enter a circus from hell and see some aged skeletons in the mysterious catacombs. You might need to pray to God if you hope to survive 13 Rooms of Doom. Luckily, there’s a church near by with Pope Natas leading the twisted service. This character is played by Roman Rojo Jossart. He’s the best actor at 13 Rooms of Doom and can really make a room come alive. 13 Rooms of Doom doesn’t over do it with chainsaws since there’s only one chainsaw maniac that you’ll encounter.
13 Rooms of Doom is well worth your time and money. It’s a short haunt, but there ‘s plans for making it larger in the near future. It’s only $5 which is hard to beat. A family of four can enjoy a night of scary fun for only twenty bucks.
