Individual Attraction Reviews:
Zombie Paintball Hunt (replaced Hayride)
Use of Props & Animatronics: 7/10 Set Design: 7/10
Overall Attraction Rating: 7/10
This attraction was about 15 minutes long. As climbed aboard the military style wagon we were handed 2 canisters of paintballs.
The attraction is a military themed zombie hunt training exercise. The two instructors dressed in military attire tell you the mission and go over the the directions. As the ride begins, One side shot before the other then both sides alternated shooting, and ended the ride with both sides shooting in synchronization. The goal was to hit
as many of the stagnant zombie props and random targets as possible. Just be mindful, the Paint splatters at times but it is machine washable. We had a lot of fun with this attraction! There was hand sanitizer available at the entrance, and exit of the attraction for all guests to use!
City of Horrors (outdoor walk-through)
Use of Props & Animatronics: 8/10 Set Design: 9/10

We entered the City of Horrors attraction around 10pm. It took us roughly 20 mins to get through the attraction. We went in with just our group, and did not run into any other customers along our journey. This is a classic horror movie themed walking trail. Themes included the walking dead, nightmare on elm street, Friday the 13th, IT, stranger things, Slender man, Halloween and a few other classic horror movie favorites! They incorporated parts of the zombie attraction and the haunted Hayride attractions to build this new attraction for the year. There were Several full structures to walk through with many complex themes. There were a lot of Fun engaging sets, tons of amazing props and costumes. as you walked through each section you were fully immersed into the horror movie the scene corresponded to. this was such a fun attraction we really enjoyed ourselves!

Overall Attraction Rating: 9/10
We entered the attraction around 10:30, it took us about 20 minutes to get through. The actors are absolutely phenomenal in this attraction. Each actor has a full elaborate story, they stay in character the entire time, and are improvising constantly. We want to make sure and Shout out to the bellhop, maid, clowns, and waitress in restaurant! Each of these actors were absolutely amazing, they brought their entire section of the attraction to life effortlessly! Some of the highlights of this attraction for us were the satanic cult members, the child in bedroom who killed her parents, and Oliver upstairs in his torture chamber. This attraction had wonderful use of chainsaws, over the top elaborate sets, and perfectly done jump scares. We Went in by ourselves and did not run into anyone else During our time in the haunt. The attraction was entirely Social distanced. There was also hand sanitizer available at entrance of the attraction!
For all those looking for food they have several options you can enjoy and a nice sitting area where are you can enjoy the bonfire! We had an amazing experience at Waldorf Estate of Fear this year.
