My husband and I were SO excited for this attraction, as we are both huge Eli Roth/horror fans. Unfortunately, the Goretorium did not live up to our expectations. We went at about 5pm on a Tuesday. There were about 15 or so people in front of us, and we waited for at least a full hour in line. They were taking in groups of only 5 or 6 at a time, and we just waited.....and waited.....and waited... for about 45 minutes. When we finally made it to the front of the line, we were told the rules (no photography, etc.), and then we waited another 15 or so minutes. Finally, we were led up the stairs to another stairwell with a faux news report that explained the backstory of the attraction. We watched this video about 5 times, on a loop, for another 15-20 minutes. At this point we, along with the four others that were placed in our group, were getting very fed up. Finally, our tour guide showed up and simply said, "sorry about that wait, folks," with absolutely NO explanation as to the wait. It almost seemed like everyone went on break.
Once we actually got inside, the attraction was decent enough. A few really awesome effects (such as a guy disappearing into a machine), and a few lame ones. Some of the actors were fantastic, while others lacked energy. The whole tour took about 15 minutes. Now, I understand that they want to give each group a truly scary experience, and this wouldn't be possible as a walkthrough exhibit. That being said, they absolutely NEED to come up with a new routine to get guests through faster, or they will lose business quickly. I am so thankful that our Powerpass covered the admission costs, because the $30 fee would have been a complete rip-off.
Really hoping they can get their act together and keep this attraction up and running, because it has potential.
