Check out the psychotic clown scare zone inside the country carnival! Scarywood boosted this area up with some sweet new lighting effects, and tons of fog machines. It made it nearly impossible to find your way. Guests were easy for the scare actors to sneak up on, so watch out!

Moving on to the four haunted attractions, we'll start out with the new one - Mind Warp. The entrance to this maze is on the pathway leading back towards Boulder Beach. Indeed, just behind that wall of hay bales is the entrance to the water park.

As guests approach the entry way, a projector screen displays on the left hand side. Four cameras are on the inside of the entrance, showing several routes one could choose to take.

Upon entering, there are a number of doors to pick from. You'll then find yourself in a hexagon-shaped room with six identical doors (one on each wall). Some of them open; others don't. Each door leads to another room with a cluster of doors to choose from. We found this first section of the maze really fun! There were many ways to get through this part, and as long as you kept heading in the right general direction, you'd find your way out in just a matter of seconds. Though it's very easy, it left one to wonder how many more doors you had to navigate through before it ended! After the maze of doors, guests are back outside in the dark, with a chain-link fence labyrinth staring them in the face. Again, it doesn't take too long to figure out which way to go, but watch out - several scare actors are strategically placed throughout, and they do a great job of hiding!

After the labyrinth comes the Vortex - the only way to exit the attraction. This is a typical "spinning hallway". Again, rather short, but very disorienting, and not for those prone to dizziness! Props to Scarywood for the design - it looked awesome! Take a closer look at the photo - it looks like there are two tunnels, right? Well, not quite. A very well placed mirror at the end of the first tunnel really makes you think that you've got a lot farther to walk, and threw us off even more!

After the Vortex, guests exit through the grass field behind the coffee house. The entire field was well decorated with lots of bales of hay and corn stalks. Again - watch out for the scare actors - they literally come out of nowhere!

Although Mind Warp was rather easy and short, we found it to be a lot of fun, and a great addition to the Scarywood attractions. It was something different than the remaining haunts, and had little to no line the entire night, so this is a great one to hit up a couple of times when you visit. And with all that space in the exit path - there's obviously plenty of opportunities to expand and change up the maze in the years to come!
