The Corner of Chaos is a rather nice farm haunt that is located in East Windsor, NJ. They have 3 attractions: The Barbaric Barnyard, The Trail of Treachery, and The Wooded Wasteland.
They say that they have another attraction – The Chaotic Carnival – but I think they were referring to a handful of scare actors walking around near the lines and the bonfire in the center of the field. That’s not really an attraction in my opinion.
Was this haunt good? Again, this is a farm haunt, so it’s not going to be comparable to the big theme parks, but I still thought it was a lot of fun. First we did the Wooded Wasteland. This was a toxic mine from the 1900s. They do pulse you here which is awesome. Pulsing is when you only let a few people in at a time so that you are not close to other people.This means that you will wait in line for a significant amount. They let small groups in only once every 10 or so minutes. Still, we managed to be behind the one group of girls who were so stupid that they managed to even screw this up. We actually ended up passing them because they had stopped to engage in an AIM conversation or something on their mobile phones. Some people need to be kicked in the ass and these girls were on that list. I was glad to pass them. It didn’t seem that the scare actors were doing much to make them keep moving – in fact I think one guy was having a fun conversation with them. WTF? Still, The Wooded Wasteland was very fun, aside from these annoying cows.
The Trail of Treachery also had a significant wait due to pulsing, but some scare actors were there to entertain us. I found that the employees here at this haunt were very friendly and funny. The Trail went through a corn maze that had some unique props like TVs and things – most notable was the girl in a white dress that was crawling around like the girl in The Ring. The poor girl was probably so sore every night because she crawled for a very long distance chasing us! It was really scary, though!
The Barbaric Barnyard was rather fun. They were playing really loud Arch Enemy through most of it – so they have good taste in metal. This was probably their best attraction. It starts out as a barnyard area but you end up going through a few different areas including a pitch black house and a backyard full of bizarre people.
This haunt is definitely a fun time. It isn’t massively groundbreaking, but it definitely delivers what it says it does and has some unique scares. There aren’t many photos because unfortunately this place is not very photogenic. The signs are a bit too dark to show up without a flash and all of the props are actually inside the attractions and not out where you can photograph them. I hope that they keep building on this because I had a lot of fun.
