Camp Blood, Carrollton, GA

On September 16, 2011 we visited Camp Blood in Carrollton, Georgia.

Let's start by saying that this was a primary example of how every haunt should be given more than one chance.  We were the last people to go through Camp Blood in 2009 and we didn't have the most positive experience, however this year we had a really good time.  The actors had great timing and stayed in character very well.  The friendly staff talked to us after we went through the attractions. 

Remember to not wear flip-flops or sandals when planning to attend a haunted house.  This is no exception with Camp Blood.  The terrain is rough/uneven in spots, so be prepared for that.  Also, be prepared for air and water to come your way at some point.  We LOVE the use of various elements throughout haunted attractions, and encourage it. 

Two of the improvements to Camp Blood this year was that they improved the sets and have roughly 75% new actors.  Both of these were major improvements. 

The greatest challenge for people going to Camp Blood is the location.  It is in the middle of nowhere, essentially.  If you use TomTom to get there it takes you on backroads that are gravel, so beware of where your directions are taking you.

Haunt Review uses a rating scale with a high end at five severed heads.  We give the 2011 Camp Blood haunt a rating of 3 1/2 severed heads.  Scary for the average person who enjoys haunts, but light and enjoyable for the person who goes to haunts frequently.
