Located in South Orange County, off of the 5 Freeway, this home haunt has enough professional elements and set decor to rival that of Backwoods Maze and Rotten Apple in Burbank, CA. The difference? Higgins Manor contains a welcome surprise: 80% of the experience is interactive, with the scare actors engaging with the guests and making them part of the story. The sets, decor, characters, and wardrobe created an old west haunt, in which visitors are recruited as henchmen in a turf war between rival land barons. The level of immersion definitely rivals some of the best interactive/theatric attractions. Higgins Manor is definitely worth the drive to South Orange County. Read full review here.
