Re: “Be afraid, spooks: Here comes the Scene's annual roundup of Middle Tennessee haunted-house attractions

I worked at devil's dungeon last year it was hard at first considering some people are fresh and some are there every year but one things for sure we bring our game.

Re: “Johann Strauss Jr.'s Die Fledermaus flutters into TPAC, courtesy of Nashville Opera

This was the dullest opera I've ever seen at tpac in 5 years. Outside of the chambermaid and the Lothario there was nothing going for it. Singing was often drowned out or inaudible. The comedy bits were painful and out of place. The plot did not flow well and the most mundane and trivial thoughts were dwelled upon to the point of tedium. I don't know if the timing was bad for the first night but I actually felt badly for some of the characters having to slog through this material. The amazing part is that the best singer by far was used for all of five minutes and this was even hinted at during the play by the character. I love Tpac but this is probably a pass for most people.

They touched my face. It was nice. I didn't feel accepted there and had the need to stay.

What night did you go on Johnnie Rhodes? Also how long was the wait to get in?

Re: “Be afraid, spooks: Here comes the Scene's annual roundup of Middle Tennessee haunted-house attractions

I went to Nashville Nightmare this past weekend to both haunts. I have to be honest it was a bore fest. I wanted a refund! I remember horror high when was a kid being in a school and it was awesome, so I was excited to go this year having a sense of nostalgia.... Oh how wrong I was. It's just endless scene rooms with hardly any actors to scare you. Needless to say I won't be returning in the coming years. Monster Mountain must be doing something right. I tried to go two years ago and just to pay was an hour wait and then another 3 hours to get into the attraction. Of course I left

You know attacking the reviewer instead of heeding constructive criticism just makes your haunt look worse.

This article seems to have been written by a teenager. Read comments from real reviewers, instead of pathetic wannabes that can't open/run their own haunted house.

I also went through Monster Mountain their first weekend and I enjoyed myself. I was impressed for an outdoor haunt.

Re: “Be afraid, spooks: Here comes the Scene's annual roundup of Middle Tennessee haunted-house attractions

I agree, opening night is go time. If you are selling tickets you should be 100%. However, many haunts have a bunch of teenagers working for them and they flake out the first weekend or two. I was expecting a poor review because the guy shows up alone and quietly walks through the haunt. Actors are in dim lights or blind and loud sound effects and the first night new actors are adapted to cues of "groups" coming through. Especially, when there is no chatter or screaming from scenes ahead of them because the lone reviewer is just strolling around like a staff member. I'm on staff and I about asked him what he was doing there BC I thought one of the actors let one of their friend in. A haunt doesn't have all year to work with actors. They are hired just a few weeks before opening. We went through a lot of people this season trying to find a good cast and we have a hell of a group of people.Feel free to look for other reviews from actual customer's.

Re: “Be afraid, spooks: Here comes the Scene's annual roundup of Middle Tennessee haunted-house attractions

As part of monster mountain I would like to say. We pulled it off pretty good to have had a fire a week before we opened. We have had nothing but good reviews from our customers and some even said we brought our A game this year. We bring our inner beast out every year and this year we have let it off the leash. One bad review won't get us down. Especially when a majority of our customers compliment us on our actors and scenes. We hope you come back through to see what we are about. We look forward to your screams!

Re: “Be afraid, spooks: Here comes the Scene's annual roundup of Middle Tennessee haunted-house attractions

I have to add something here. You have all year to be "ready" to open up your haunt. Your first day opening, you should be bringing your A Game. Your actors are fresh and full of energy, and your sets have yet to see any abuse. Using the excuse "It was our first night, we weren't ready!" makes it seem like no preparation was done. Its not a valid excuse. Preparation is key.

Re: “Be afraid, spooks: Here comes the Scene's annual roundup of Middle Tennessee haunted-house attractions

Having been through most of these haunts not only at the beginning of the year, but also deeper into the scaring season, I'd have to give Nashville Scene an A+ on these spooktacular reviews. The Scene is always blatantly honest, which most reviewers honestly lack. Thanks guys for this "Guide to Your Demise!" It's definitely one that fright-seekers should read before hitting the local haunts this Halloween season.

@killer

It's true that haunts get better as the season goes on but fact is...when you open the doors you should be ready to go.

When people are personal friends of other haunts it tends to lead to biased reporting! Just saying!

I don't work at Monster Mountain, but I do know that they had a fire just before the season started which ruined at least 4 of their scenes. I'm surprised you didn't hear about that.
