I've been to the Muskogee castle many times for the Renaissance festival and have not been disappointed. What's not to like about a fully functional town with jousting and food and vendors. However.... When it comes to Halloween festivities, the Castle of Muskogee falls short. There is a wide selection of attractions to choose from, true, but most if not all of them round out to disappointment. The children's area and train are little more than county fair style inflatables set off to the side. Only half of the grounds are actually open and the rest (for some reason) are roped off and dark. For this review I'll discuss three of the top attractions. They use a 5 skull rating system for their attractions so we will go by that and my rating will be after theirs Domus Horrificus: 5 skulls, I give it 4 This was by far the best of the haunts we went to. The theme seemed to be movies and they panned out fairly well. It wasn't necessarily 'scary' but I'm not easy to scare. There were enough encounters and some beautiful sets and you didn't feel rushed. The only issues I really had with this one was at the end, the inflated section was a little too inflated and we almost could not get through, some of the costumes were downright sad (slenderman's mask looked like a tshirt??) and the actors could be a bit more interactive, but I know if you are scripted it's hard to play along especially if you aren't used to improvising to people's answers. Overall my favorite of the haunts. Casa Morte: 4 skulls, 3 skulls The biggest issues I had with this haunt were the lack of actors, props and animatronics and the fog. There were long stretches of nearly nothing, no props, no animatronics, just hallways and it led to a bit of boredom at sections. There was also a sense of panic amongst some of the cast, who rushed by without attempting to scare along the way and left areas unattended. The fog in two of the rooms was way too thick. The first one made it difficult to see where we needed to go and the second room was actually impossible to see and VERY difficult to breathe. A cast member had to break character to help lead us out because we couldn't see anything. Fog is great if you use it correctly. Do not place it on the ground or center and fill a room, instead placing it up high and allowing it to shadow the room creates a much better effect. There was also an issue with backing up in the haunts with other groups. The teams waited between 30 seconds to 1 minute to send in a new group and that's just way too soon. Some people rush, some people (like me) do not. Allow at least 3 minutes between walks and use the down time for characters and animatronics to reset for the next group. Trail of Blood: 5 skulls, 2 skulls I'm going to be honest. The only reason this haunted gets 2 skulls instead of 1 is the zombie section. They were interactive, funny and entertaining and the set was great. Taking the trailer ride out to the entrance is a great idea and we did enjoy that bit very much. The rest, however, was a total flop. Over what seems like 1/2-3/4 mile trek, we encountered no more than 10 actors. The scare zones along the way were mediocre at best. At least 50% of the trail is stumbling along uneven terrain in mostly darkness hoping you are going the right way in between scare zones. Nothing popped out or jumped out at us, no loud noises or true scares. Mostly just an uncomfortable walk through the forest. This makes me sorely disappointed as this is such a HUGE missed opportunity. The length of walk that is available lends to a chance to make a truly great haunted attraction and for 15 dollars a pop and a bar near the entrance, you expect the best. However, what you are met with is half assed props, nearly no scare actors and a sense of wasted money. There are dozens of things that could have been done (for example, the "house" you enter could have easily been a scene from the exorcist or a haunted house instead of staring at decade old technology covered in dust (again, where is an actor?). Overall, the Castle does much better at Renaissance than it does at anything else. Perhaps utilizing the entire village during Halloween as a Victorian village or even a ghost village where spirits roam would be much better. My advice, for such a large facility, look into utilizing your funds in a better way. Splurge on cheap animatronics, train the actors on how to interact better and place more of them in the haunts rather than roaming aimlessly through the half closed village or leaning against buildings doing nothing. Utilize enhanced costume and makeup skills if they are going to be getting close to customers. Overall, the location is amazing and some of the sets are stunning but sorely underused.
