"A haunted house on a dark, starry night, while the world held its breath waiting for the veil between worlds to thin on Samhain (Halloween) eve. I cannot say enough good things about KC's nationally known 'The Beast'. I've seen million dollar movies that couldn't match it in production value. The staff was a combination of professional actors and students. They all did their job well and never broke character. I teased a pretty vamp about biting my neck, then she actually did! Honey, if things were different… I was in awe of old London, the building facings done with false fronts so you could look in windows and see flickering lights, pictures on the walls, furniture. Mazes in forbidden forests with live ghouls to herd you along and 10 foot tall Hollywood level devils laughing and grabbing for you. False walls that the staff moved just to vex you blocking your last safe turn and stealing your sanity. A choice between a 4 story slide or jumping out a 3 story window to get out. I bow before you Full Moon Productions. The best part for me, though, was the staff. My daughter had never walked through a haunted house before. I had never gone through a professional haunted house before so I didn't realize... At 12 years of age it was too big of a step into the terrifying. I made a motion to a costumed troll that she was crying and he/she backed up. I called out that the chainsaw was too much and he/she put it down.
Another staff member herded the worshipers of all that goes bump in the night down a pitch black turn then whisked my daughter and I out. He showed her the back staging and the sets still under construction or repair and talked calmly the whole time. Embarrassment quickly faded as he declared we were the third ones that night, and they had only been open an hour. Kindness on a night of fright. Well trained, compassionate staff. That's what took a famous haunted house and made it truly world class."

After I moved away from KC I still made a special trip back every year to go through these houses. They don’t have any other haunted houses like these in other cities. The Beast is my favorite!

We bought our VIP tickets online and skipped the lines! It was awesome; it must have saved us at least an hour wait on a Saturday in October. We’ll definitely be back next year!
