#1 13TH GATE
Baton Rouge, Louisiana - www.13thgate.com
The 13th Gate once again was the favorite of the judges (for the second consecutive time) and for years it happens to be a personal favorite of the ZZZippy.com staff. We visited 13th Gate a few years back and it made a lasting impression on our folks and continues to impress us year after year.
13th Gate is made up of several areas if you will, which carefully and intentionally transition from one scene to the next. There is nothing accidental as guests journey through 13 distinctive areas of the attraction and once you're in, the heat is up.
Dwayne Sanburn (owner/operator) has carefully orchestrated this exceptional haunted house so that there is never a dull second. Sanburn is one of the bright stars in the industry, setting standards that many others attempt to emulate but most never seem to quite get there. He's also one of the nicest guys you'd ever care to meet in this scary haunt industry, offering his time, opinion and ideas to newcomers and old haunters alike. One thing that our judges admire most about Sanburn is the way he brings his scenes to life, not only with ultra-realistic sets but with actors that deliver credible, convincing parts. These two elements are undoubtedly what makes 13th Gate one one of the best haunts in the world.
Detailed sets and attention to details are not just a catch phrase at 13th Gate... it's a way of life. Add to that credible, high-energy actors and exceptional management and it comes together to make 13th Gate one of the top haunted attraction anywhere.
