We went to Old Town Haunt in Pasadena for the first time. I'd recommend it iF you live close by or are able to use public transportation to get there. Otherwise you do,have to park in a parking garage (small cost). It's only 1 haunted house. It is in a building that used to be the bank but has long been deserted. The building was built in the 1900's and is apparently rumored to be haunted. This attraction has you descending into the basement area of the building. There are two lines one around the side of the building for general admission and one in front of the building for VIP.
I would recommend getting your tickets thru Goldstar or someplace that has discounted tickets. (We managed VIP thru Goldstar for half price). they take you inside in groups so the VIP's get priority. There are also talent trying to scare you as you wait which builds the suspense. I do warn you though this attraction is definitely not for those afraid of the dark, small spaces nor wouldi bring someone under the age of 13. This attraction has set pieces from Buffy The Vampire Slayer as well as Rob Zombie's House of 1,000 Corpses. However it is so dark down there that it is very hard to see much.
You are given the rules and the talent definitely does not touch you. You are warned and SPOILER there is a real crawl space. If you can not crawl there are signs and an alternative route around the crawl space. I'd recommend that if you are able to crawl do,it. It is very padded and not hard on your knees or anything.
The talent is great (hiding in places). They try to scare everyone not just those at the front. At times someone wouldn't even have to do anything but sit or stand in their spot and I would freak out. The anamatronics are neat and working. One actually made me jump and scream.
We ended up getting lost in one spot (missed a right turn) and went around in a circle for a second time. It is very disorienting and easily able to get lost. There is a pitch black portion that we had difficulty finding our way. The crawl space was definitely a must do. For me I would concentrate on crawling and I did not want to look up or anything.
Im glad that we were able to fit this in this year but I don't think we will be back when there are so many more attractions that are repeatable for us.
