Shadow’s Edge keeps visitors on their toes


It’s safe to say that Shadow’s Edge is the scariest haunted house I’ve ever been to. Unlike Mystery Manor, Shadow’s Edge kept me on my toes. Through suspense, gore and horrific sights, this house made it difficult for me to sleep that night.

Thankfully, there was no line. We just paid and were on our way to horror. I was pleasantly surprised that all of the makeup and special features were so realistic. The clowns were by far the creepiest. Their faces were deformed and their makeup was spot-on.

Honestly, sometimes I was so terrified that I buried my head into the hoodie of the person in front of me. At one point, I fell because a creepy magician with dark makeup walked toward me. I tripped, causing a domino effect for the poor people in front of me.

I also commend their acting. Even after I smacked my head into the wall, the magician never stopped following me. The chainsaws were by far the scariest part of the haunted house. There wasn’t just one chainsaw, but two. It was so unexpected where they were placed. Of course there was one at the end but there was also one in the middle of the house making us run for our lives.

Shadow’s Edge is gory, even more so than other haunted houses which made it stand out. While walking through there are actors munching on fake organs.

Well, at least I hope they were fake.

There wasn’t a surprise at every corner, which I liked because it built suspense. Sometimes when walking through a haunted house I expect to jump or I run so much I miss some major scare factors, so this was a nice change.

Though the house was fun, it was difficult to find, not because it’s outrageously far away but because the address on the website does not match its location. We plugged it into three navigation systems only to be led to an abandoned warehouse each time. When trying to locate Shadow’s Edge, just remember it is in Mangelsen’s parking lot located 3457 S 84th Street.

Walking, or should I say running, through Shadow’s Edge was well worth the $11. There wasn’t a moment I wasn’t terrified. The cast did an excellent job at making it a realistic experience. If you want to, this is the place to go.
