Wolf Creek Haunted Forest is in its second year of operation and it wil be the first year City Blood checks it out. There are some haunted trails that follow a theme while others that have scenes that reflect popular horror movies. Wolf Creek Haunted Forest does a little of both and in the end it’s a fun haunt that people should enjoy.

This is City Blood’s review of Wolf Creek Haunted Forest.

What’s Good About The Haunt?
If you are a big fan of horror movies you will have a blast at Wolf Creek Haunted Forest. Movies include Aliens, Predator, A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Jeepers Creepers, Halloween, Saw and many more gory favorites. The actors are also well hidden and are ready to have you running in pure panic. You will experience close to 20 scenes that last around 20 minutes..

Freddy Krueger can be seen in his haunted school bus while Leatherface is lurking in the woods ready to chase you with his bloody chainsaw. You will notice as you walk through Wolf Creek Haunted Forest that quite a few areas use old fashion style lights that slowly dim off and on creating a haunting effect. When it comes down to it there’s a lot of variety to be found at Wolf Creek Haunted Forest and scenes that will have you guessing what movie they are from. It’s a fun and frightening haunt.

What’s Bad About The Haunt?
Some of the scenes aren’t that effective such as the Freddy Krueger Haunted Bus which lacks anything that’s truly scary. It’s something you would typically see in most haunted trails. Then there are scenes that are fun, but not as interesting as some of the rooms based on classic horror movies. This is the case with the Aliens and Predator scenes. These scenes are creative and something you usually don’t see at a haunt, but don’t leave a great lasting impression.

Customer Service:
The Wolf Creek staff run a very organized haunt. The Parking is safe and the staff seemed to be in control of the crowd. The Speed pass line could be better lit and include a bright sign saying “Speed Pass”. It can be a little confusing as to where to go. But, besides that small complaint I think the entire staff knows what they’re doing.

$17 is a bit too high for a haunted trail that doesn’t have high priced animatronics or something that really sets itself apart from your typical haunted trail. If you are a family of four, you are going to end up paying $68 for a haunted trail. So please make sure to print out a $2 off coupon at Wolf Creek’s website or use City Blood’s Killer Coupon available on this website.

Final Thoughts:
There are areas that Wolf Creek Haunted Forest needs to work on, but considering it’s their second year I think they are on the right path. If you are planning on heading out to this haunted trail make sure and print out one of their $2 off coupons available at www.wolfcreekhauntedforest.com.
