Review: HAUNT at Worlds of Fun
While HAUNT is not the most frightening, it is still a fun and worthwhile experience
Whether or not you like haunted houses, HAUNT, would still be a good way to have some Halloween fun.
HAUNT is available after 6:30 PM on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays until 12:00 AM at the Worlds of Fun park, but the rides are open during the typical hours (11 AM – 7 PM). Ticket prices are a little pricey starting at $35, but the experience is definitely worth it.
HAUNT has a total of eight different haunted houses, along with the availability of the usual roller coasters, carnival games, and different food options.
My personal favorite haunted house that I went into was CornStalkers. Whether it was the cool concept or because it was the first haunted house I went into, it remains the most memorable in my mind. It was captivating due to the unsuspecting positioning of the scare actors and the intriguing props throughout the maze.
Coasters Drive-in is also worth checking out while at HAUNT. It has a great atmosphere and serves pretty good classic diner food, like chicken tenders and milkshakes. It serves as a satisfactory spot to rest before tackling the haunted houses and roller coasters again.
The long lines were the only issue during my HAUNT experience. The lines shortened as the event went on, but at the beginning, around 7, the lines seemed to go around the whole park. I waited in line for over an hour to get into the haunted house, Blood on the Bayou, and the haunted house itself is less than 15 minutes.
Overall, HAUNT was a very great experience, and definitely worth trying out if you are looking for a fun fall event.
