Visibility/Location: In the old wal-mart building. It was very visible and in a nice location.

Wait Entertainment: None!! Very boring.

Length of Event: 15 minutes

Actor Performance: Very low! I did not see many actors, it was a long maze which could have been good if there were people jumping out and trying to scare us.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Low, my 6 year niece was more scared at last years kiddy haunted house than this years adult one. I was very disappointed!

Appropriate Ages: The adult one was not even scary for children under 5 years of age

Props / Special FX: very nice

Costumes / Make-up: I did not see any

Summary: I was disappointed I know the people who usually run the haunted house. We stood in line for 2.5 hours which is understandable but as we approached the door the workers came out to see the line really long approaching the closing hours and cussed in front of 7 children. I feel like the workers were tired and slacking on their job which was very disappointing for children. I doubt that I will go back next year to this haunted house and will go out of town to another one!

Visibility/Location: Excellent signage. They had a blacklight sign at the road and a huge blacklight sign at the entrance.

Wait Entertainment: They had one of those Haunted Video tapes playing on a disguised TV. Staff were friendly and polite.

Length of Event: 15 - 20 minutes

Actor Performance: The actors were good. A lot of it was jumping out of hiding places and screaming.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Flow was good. You could tell which direction you were to move in. The mazes were wonderful. You could get lost, but they had monsters to keep you moving.

Appropriate Ages: 10 and up.

Props / Special FX: Basically it was a low tech house. The vortex tunnel is one of the best that I have experienced.

Costumes / Make-up: Costumes were fair. Mostly consisted of masks and clothes. They did have a few elaborate costumes.

Summary: Overall this is a great house to take the family. Some of the rooms are very detailed and others are very simple. But, all rooms are constructed so that you keep looking around to try and spot the next scare.
