Last weekend we made an epic trek down to Orange County to check out some of their independent haunts and even though the night consisted of about 250 miles of driving we were treated to some amazing events.
The first one we'll be looking at is Motel 6 Feet Under ...
Last year when this Haunt debuted it was universally praised not for gore or big time in your face "extreme" haunt, but for just being a fun Haunted House.
Unfortunately we didn't make it last year to do a full review but this was at the top of our list of "must visits" for 2016. And we're so glad we were able to experience it.
If you're looking for a fun "not too scary, not at all gory, not at all gonna freaking shock you with a taser" event, this is the one you should check out. We guarantee you'll have a lot of fun at Motel 6 Feet Under.
We did get invited to take pictures inside the maze (and a maze it is) but we were afraid that we'd spoil the fun if we took too many pictures.
The maze starts off in an old looking "motel lobby" where there are some amazing effects and one that was very cool (that again, we won't spoil).
They let people in VERY small groups (our group of 4 was alone the entire time and we never saw anybody else in the maze). As you enter you are greeted by a bellhop where you are led into the event. And where you go into the first room is not where you come out.
As you venture into Motel 6 Feet under you are going to encounter ghouls of many sorts, dead ends, moving walls and all sorts of crazy things that make this a truly unique haunt.
This is an event that would be a great "starter" maze, you aren't going to get shocked or abused in any way, what you are going to have is an amazing time experiencing all of the effects and illusions that are so well done.
The event is located just on the other side of the 5 Freeway from Disneyland (if you've run the Disneyland Half Marathon you've run by the location). There is PLENTY of free street parking but we suggest going early as it does get busy.
With Halloween weekend coming up this event (and pretty much EVERY event) is going to be busy.
So Motel 6 Feet Under has thought ahead and will actually be open the weekend AFTER Halloween as well. So if you're all booked up this weekend, don't worry, you still have another weekend to experience this great event.
You can find more information on Motel 6 Feet Under on their website. This is definitely one of the most recommended events of the year. You'll have an amazing time.
