Field of Screams Review 2013

Posted by HHR Scares on Thursday, March 20, 2014




                On September 14, 2013 the Haunt Rater Crew made yet another trip to “Field of Screams” located in Mountville, Pennsylvania! Why we subject ourselves to level of horror year after year is beyond us except that…IT IS TOTALLY WORTH IT! This year, after many years, “Field of Screams” has added a fourth attraction for your terrifying pleasure called “Nocturnal Wasteland”.  We had a literal blast as always. Normally we start out our night by doing the “Haunted Hayride” but, decided to change things up this year. We started out our night by attempting to survive the “Frightmare Asylum”. You never really remember what true terror looks like until you return and do this attraction each and every year. We were scared to our wits end! Forced to face all of our fears that we could possibly think of, we ended our experience by praying to the heavens that we would just survive the rest of our night. Being chased by chainsaws on the way out gets us every single time without a doubt, even if you know it is coming! We are providing the following ratings for “Frightmare Asylum”:

Scare Factor: 10 - Theme: 10 - Originality: 10 - Special Effects: 10 - Actors: 10

Overall Rating for Frightmare Asylum: 10 out of 10

                Next our journey led us to the “Den of Darkness” where we were once again tested to the extreme! We are just glad that we are not “faint of heart” or otherwise our hearts would have left our chests by this point of our adventures. Scares and chills around every corner. Ghouls and Ghosts met us at every turn, daring us to venture further on into what we could only think of as our entrance into “Hell” itself! We never thought we would literally make it out alive…or in with any pieces left of us for that matter! We are providing the following ratings for “Den of Darkness”:

Scare Factor: 10 – Theme: 10 – Originality: 10 – Special Effects: 10 – Actors: 10

Overall Rating for Den of Darkness: 10 out of 10

The third and newest attraction at “Field of Screams” was the “Nocturnal Wasteland”. This was definitely a very unique experience! It is one not to take lightly by any stretch of the imagination. For a first year attraction at such a Top Haunted Attraction, we would classify our experience within Nocturnal Wasteland as, “One Hellacious Night of Horror!” A night to not be forgotten any time soon! The smells, props, ghouls and ghosts, the trail itself and the night were just right for us to have a Spooktacular Time at “Nocturnal Wasteland”. We are providing the following ratings for “Nocturnal Wasteland”:

Scare Factor: 9 - Theme: 10 – Originality: 10 – Special Effects: 10 – Actors: 9

Overall Rating for Nocturnal Wasteland: 9.6 out of 10

                Last but, certainly not least was the Horrifying “Haunted Hayride”. This is always our favorite of the night to do which is why we decided to save the best for last. If you want to experience horror like you have never experienced before then, we dare you to climb aboard for the “Ride of your Life!” We are providing the following ratings for the “Haunted Hayride”:

Scare Factor: 10 – Theme: 10 – Originality: 10 – Special Effects: 10 – Actors: 10

Overall Rating for the Haunted Hayride: 10 out of 10

                We give “Field of Screams” a rating of “9.9 out of 10” for a “Nightmare to Remember”!
