She greets her old friend but is disappointed to learn that a former classmate, Taylor (Bex Taylor-Klaus), whom Natalie does not get along with is living with her.

Goofs

The gang gets VIP bracelets when they enter Hell Fest, meaning they don't have to wait in line. Later, after Gavin gets separated from the rest, the others convince Natalie he'll catch up to them in line for the next ride, even though they're supposed to be able to go around queues with their VIP band. Then, when actually reaching the next ride, they're still surprised there's a line for the VIP access. See more »

Not bad
30 September 2018 | by pigguluSee all my reviews

Honestly enjoyable. The premise isn't wholly unique, and eventually you just want the killer to hurry up and start piling up the bodies, but it was fun watching the main characters go through the theme park and at many time you may feel that you're actually going through a haunted house/maze as well.

But the movie is almost exclusively just jump scares, with little tense or suspenseful moments, and towards the end it falls into the pitfalls/tropes of the genre (he killed our friends so let's just give him a quick tap on the head and keep on running!) You can't help but shake your head and reminisce about the first Scary Movie while watching this.

Overall, it did surpass expectations and was entertaining.
