I feel like last year they also took out more mazes than mazes they added. I would really love to see more mazes added instead of scare zones.

Most of if not all of the mazes got some new props and upgrades last year though. I remember KillMart got a really neat animatronic last year, I loved working near that thing. I think the other mazes got similar stuff.

Quantity does not equal quality.  Last year, IMO was the worst year for the Haunt.  The houses were all practically empty, very few roamers.

My theory is that since Winterfest came back last year, a lot of Haunt actors might’ve decided to do that instead. Hopefully that doesn’t happen again this year.

There are quite a few of us Haunt scareactors that did both Haunt and WinterFest last year.  I can't think of any that chose to do WinterFest instead of Haunt.

I think the lack of Scareactors might be related to the overall competitiveness in trying to attract people for jobs.  I know it is hard for us to attract people to work in the rides department at Coney, let alone keep them through the entire post season.

I was really excited for Choas and pumpkin eater due to them actually having back story.. we went on the 12th and almost everything fot shut down from the rain and cold. No park roamers amd choas was almost totally empty.. pumpkin eater had the potential to be awesome just needes more workers... going back the 27th... hopefully thia time we'll be able to see blood drums and the other new live show

I was there last weekend on Saturday, and one of the Haunt scarers from the wax museum house was in line for the bathroom, cracking jokes, and staying in character. All the other scarers were breaking character, or at least the roaming ones. I cannot do the smog stuff they have (it stings my eyes) and strobes bother me, so I cannot really do the haunted houses, but my friends who went in them said that they were not a lot of scarers.
