this place was horrible!!!!!!! nothing scary, just a constant bombardment of harassment!! people jumping out and banging on the wall and yelling at every corner (every 10 feet) and then following you, breathing on neck, stepping on back of feet, tapping on the shoulder, following you until you see another person standing in the middle of the hallway (5 feet wide) you have to walk a foot away from them and when you do they get 3 inches from your face then yell. horrible experience, texas chainsaw massacre in waco and six flags in dallas are the only ones ive been to before and absolutely loved them!!!
Phobia haunted House- Exile – me and a bunch of my friends went in exile which is 3 attractions in one. Fowler woods, darkeworld, and mania. it was ok and sometimes scary in the moment, but the actors got pretty mad because we wernt that scared. i did not have nightmares that night like everyone says you do, it was honestly a waste of $25. it was fun but ill never go to exile again.
I first read the reviews posted here and Phobia was awesome – I first read the reviews posted on citysearch, there is a lot of talk about mud. Mud was NONEXISTENT on out trip to phobia on 10/16/10. The place was packed but only took a few minuted to pull onto the property. The actors running around the parking lot had me laughing so hard my stomach began to hurt! A guy with yellow glo sticks was screeching like a bird, a male in a female nurse outfit was dancing. We went to 4 of the 8 attractions. Mind control, Darke institute, 3d Clown Phobia and Dawn of the Machine. Dawn of the machine was our favorite. Actors shouted machine things and came from every angle. The others were great. Mind control was creepy and my second favorite.
I wish i would have been able to see all 8 attractions but unfortunately i could not afford to. I did get a $5 dollar off coupon from a Papa johns pizza box. I went to Screamworld, texas terror and castle of doom last year and i wish i could get my money back and go through phobia again. The place is huge, suspense is in the air, so is the smell of the male female nurse.
Nightmare- but not in a good way – At the intersection before ever getting to the Haunted House, cars were completely trapped. The car line to get into the Haunted House stopped all traffic, girls getting out of cars and standing in front of other people's cars so their car could pass everyone. No traffic cops AT ALL. If Phobia wasn't so cheap, they would have provided traffic cops. After waiting 40 minutes, sitting in my car 1 minute away from the Haunted House, it ending up being completely unscary and lame. Don't waste your time or money.
Phobia was Gooood – Phobia is fun. We saw 3 houses.
The woods, 3D clowns (with special glasses)
and the mental hospital one. They opened last week for a special night after Halloween. Very cool. It was not crowded at all. All those strange monsters walking around the property was cool. Me likes!
Went to Phobia Last week – Phobia on 290 was our last stop this Halloween.
We saw The Trails (sucked) last week. Screamworld (ok but not that great) a few weeks ago and Nightmare (don't bother). Phobia was our favorite. It was very muddy from all the rain Friday. The parking lot was bad, but so was our yard., so they should try to fix that if possible. I liked the Dark Instute and Claustraphobia. My friend liked the woods and the Clown one more. The actors were very good and I liked all the mechanical props. I know the 31st is the rookie night, but it was the only night we could all go. They should open more nights. Worth the trip. We all agreed - Thumbs up. We wore old shoes that were muddy from everywhere else! I'll go back next year for sure.
Not What I expected!! – Im very disappointed about this so highly talked about Phobia haunted house. For all the money that is made off of this function, you would think they would have their parking lot fixed. My family and I went yesterday 10/31 and when we stepped out of the car we stepped in complete mud.. mud .. mud.. mud was everywhere. Then we had to walk accoss the muddy lot to the ticket booth to purchase tickets where young high school kids were hanging out and seemed as if there were little people there over the age ... then we had to walk back across to get to the house we wanted to go to and again through all the mud. Our shoes we so so messed up it was sad and unbelievable. Now as for the houses .. they were cool.. funny..just a little teeny weeny scary!! lol
But why did they have young kids in costumes and standing in the walkways of the house to scare you.. how when i can see you ahead of me... I SEE YOU FOOL!! that is not going to scare me if i see you standing in the hallways and screaming and banging and chanting right there in front of me.. they would try to scare you when they are right there and they know we see them... this was just pure not what i expected!!! come better than this if you are going to charge all that money!!!! Dont waste your money... im lookin at these reviews and you guys must work there or known these people.. there is no way that this place is all that and then some.. no way!!! find something else to do. or they need to revamp that place.. my son did like it but he was like that was not scary i could see the people standing and scaing the people in front of me..... go figure. peace CAli Love babe
Phobia: Mind Control – The location was more difficult to find than I thought; the sign is not very prominent. The entrance really set the mood-- creepy winding road surrounded by trees and props. It had rained, so the parking lot was somewhat muddy, but fortunately, they have indoor houses.
I tried the Mind Control house (insane asylum). It was basically just a dark room with narrow, winding halls and actors in masks jumping out at you. I excepted more props/decor or something bloodier. I didn't find it scary (I don't get spooked easily, though), but the other people in the house were screaming through the whole thing. I am still curious about the other houses, so I will probably go back anyway.
It took us about 10 mins to go through the house and we were walking pretty slow.
Parking is free.
Phobia - 45 Mall of the Mainland location – Went through all 3 houses 10/9/09. Only 1 was scary & that was Darke World. All 3 houses rely on the same scare tactic....someone jumps out at you around EVERY corner....so by halfway through, you KNOW someone is going to jump out around EVERY corner. That pretty much takes away the suspense. Since there were no lines, we went through each house in about 5 minutes. Totally not worth the money. We left here & went to Dungeon of Doom at the Kemah Boardwalk. THAT haunted house was WAY cheaper & a LOT scarier.
Best Haunt in Houston – This place was amazing, the atmosphere was crazy freaky, each house was about 15mins of non stop in your face actors/props and scares. The best in my opinion was Mind Control: The Asylum, 3D Clown Phobia, and Dawn of the Machine. Though they all made everyone in my group scream multple times, actors from the wodos even followed us out to the parking lot! I went to ScreamWorld and The Haunted Trails, and this one completely makes those too look like a garage scare.
