I went there last week and it was pretty good! Worth the money?very unique in my opinion.
Couple things you should know if you want to go:
*You need to get your tickets online (http://www.soapfactory.org/) and you need to order well in advance as time slots fill up
*Absolutely go in groups of four?they will likely split you up if you do not. If four is impossible try for groups of two and you might get to stay together. We went on a Monday, it wasn?t very busy but they still made every group of three or more than four draw a cards and they split them up. If you are split up before you enter the basement you will not be reunited until it is done.
*Don?t cry uncle! I have never been in a haunted house like this, I was so very close to tapping out in the first few minutes (the man?yes 30 year old man-- in front of us came running out before our group got down. 34 people have bailed so far this year). I just shut my eyes, held the rope (hint hint) and went along, it took about two minutes but then it was better.
*You sign a waiver and you have to be at least 18 so they have the ability to say some pretty demeaning things--expect to hear some name calling. At one point you are restrained and blindfolded (another spoiler) my ?driver? told me he was going to rape me?that I thought crossed the line so I wrote a letter to the company. They said they would make sure to let the everyone know those threats were not acceptable. Besides the comment the driver was not inappropriate, and I did not actually feel threatened-- I just think he thought it would be a scary thing to say.
*Overall it is not all that scary, it is just very unique and can really get your heart pounding a couple times. When I was there I only saw 11 ?monsters? and only two monsters had the job of jumping out at you.
*Do not do this if you are claustrophobic, obese, or have trouble with balance. I had bruises on my legs because I ran into so many things with the uneven floors and in some parts I was literally brushing up against the walls?.
