ZIOPTIS SEZ 2019 - OUT OF THE GATE AND INTO THE FIRE
This haunt is a giant success story that’s still in the making:
They only had 2 months to set this all up, after moving here from the former HAUNTED ELEMENTARY...but pulled it off big time!
So, as good as it was in 2019, we can expect even more going forward as they have a 5 year lease on a fabulous giant building. They won’t be rushed for next season, and we plan to be there.
Excellent acting and props / scenes throughout!
There’s a highly unique room that comes to life early on, along with a butcher boy with a super wild face who seriously gets in yours.
Juxtaposition rules here, with a toy horse and then a giant Teddy Bear with an even bigger surprise!
Other standouts were Johnny Slit Throat and the devil dude with a highly questionable fetish who sports a cross of all things.
Dan the Grinch makes a surprise entrance as well as the pumpkin head creature, and we really liked Penelope the blonde with a most unusual canine companion. GREAT STUFF!
Rounding out the haunt experience is the 3D GALLERY to finish you off with more crazy canines and PUNCHY THE CLOWN whose face explodes under the powerful black lights.
One more thing about this haunt is something we rarely see...benches to sit on in the queue line. A haunt this good generates big lines, and what a nice touch they let you relax a bit before feeding you to the ghouls and goblins that call FACTORY OF THE DEAD home!

ZIOPTIS SEZ 2019 - VITAL TRANSFORMATION LAUNCHES HUSH INTO MEGA HAUNT STATUS
Imagine for a moment that you have some friends with a child who is 4 foot tall.
A year goes by until you see them again, and now the child is 24 feet tall! Well, that’s sort of what just happened to HUSH HAUNTED ATTRACTION.
YOUNG HAUNT JUMPS INTO DETROIT MEGA HAUNT SCENE WITH MASSIVE TRANSFORMATION
They grew up big time, becoming a MYSTICAL MANSION LIKE NO OTHER in a flash after moving this year to a brand new 40,000 square foot building on site of the former SKATELAND WEST.
AT HUSH THE ONLY CONSTANT IS CHANGE
Basically they found some estate sales at swanky old mansions and bought everything, then reassembled it all to create a BIG MANSION FEEL.
It’s SIX TIMES bigger than before on Ford Road, and yet there’s still lots of room for expansion. The decrepit main building of Skateland was replaced with a brand new building, so the infrastructure is top notch to satisfy picky city inspectors.
