For the second year in a row, we made the almost-three-hour trek up north to Niles, Michigan to the Niles Haunted House Scream Park -- and again, we were NOT disappointed.
Niles was pretty impressive last year in 2014, but how exactly did it fair in 2015?
Let's dig in, shall we...
Each year, the main house at Niles gets a redesign. This year, their theme is Kingdoms End, a haunt based almost entirely on the works on Stephen King.
And you know what? It's awesome! Every minute of it. Awesome. Almost all of King's more famous works are represented here. Whether you want to see Carrie get crowned at the prom or pass by a Pet Sematary or even walk through a dark hedge maze, it's all here!
Kingdoms End is packed full of scares and surprises and is definitely an attraction you don't want to miss when visiting Niles Scream Park.
Ashes to Ashes
Now this was a cool one I didn't expect. Ashes to Ashes is set up like an abandoned boarding school and if y…
It's that time of the year again -- haunted house season is officially here! And for the fourth consecutive year, we wandered up North to Niles, Michigan for the one and only Niles Scream Park!
So without any ado, let's jump into it... The Niles Haunted House
Like last year, the main house kept the cinema theme. But this year, they changed up the movies and the decorations. The house is notorious for having numerous ways to get through, and unfortunately for us, we only went through the house once so we didn't get to see and experience every route. But that's okay because what we did see was an easy A+.
This is one of Niles' new haunts this year -- and if you haven't guessed, it's got a demonic possession/Exorcist theme. And it works. The set decoration and mood and atmosphere are great. The only thing I feel this haunt needs is a little more action. Otherwise, it's a great haunt.
Another one of their new haunts this year is…
We finally made our way back to Nightmare on Edgewood, our visit since 2014. Edgewood has always been one of the better haunts on Indy's southside, so let's see if it holds up in 2017!
Midnight Double Feature
First off, this haunt has one of, if not, the best facades I have ever seen: a full-scale old-school entrance! I was completely blown away by it and the awesomeness didn't stop there. Once, inside, the haunt is a straight-up movie theater, complete with entrances to other theaters, full of surprises. Once you're actually "in" the haunt, we found it very reminiscent of their attraction from 2014, Old School Fright (which I loved). But instead of regurgitating their older designs, it appeared to be completely re-worked. Doesn't hurt that all the actors brought their A-games also.
Much like their 2014 attraction Pandemonium, Insanity is their "black-out" haunt. I'm not a huge fan of all-dark haunts, but Edgewood manages to k…
