Review: Abington Zombie Apocalypse, Abington, MA (4.5 stars)

The Cell is new this year, and a welcome addition since the house is great but a bit short. The Cell is an indoor prison themed maze that you wander, looking for the exit. Most haunted attractions force you down a single pathway, so getting to explore and return and get lost was a creative twist, and being locked in with the inmates (costumed actors) worked well. Unfortunately, to make a maze truly confusing you have to make it all look the same, and the theme of having cell bars let you see what was coming from all directions. The production quality didn’t include much beyond the cell bars, and the actors were in such close quarters that it was a challenge for them to be both menacing and believably not touching you, although there was a fog room corner. Still, a great way to get a touch more from your visit, and you can spend as much time in there as you want.

The Devil’s Playground is a ‘corn field’, again using plywood rather than an actual field of corn, the metaphor further confused by there being a cemetery in the corn field. The attraction is almost entirely actors trying to startle you rather than having believably twisted or gruesome scenes, but it’s nice to be outdoors at night, and kudos especially to the women actors in this attraction.
