| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: Medium | Atmosphere: Good|
Visibility/Location: The sign in the driveway was good, but too small and dark - it was 'washed out' by the remodeling sign behind it. Because it's a backyard attraction, it's not easy to see from the street, and took me two drives around the block to find it. Parking is on-street.
Wait Entertainment: Not applicable.
Length of Event: About 10 minutes.
Actor Performance: Highly motivated, very energetic & well-timed! (They also knew just how far to push the 'don't touch' rule.)
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Not applicable.
Appropriate Ages: A bit intense for the very young.
Props / Special FX: The props were generally very good, although a bit piled up on each other. For a free (!) backyard attraction, the props and detail were amazing! FX are, as you would expect, very limited, but well-used.
Costumes / Make-up: Quite professional and effective - better than some I have seen in large, paid-admission attractions.
Summary: This is a FREE, backyard home haunt, put on by enthusiasts. It's very small, entirely outdoors, with a small number of performers and limited effects ... so I'd have to say that in terms of bang-for-the-buck, it's one of the BEST haunts I've ever seen. I am impressed!
Be sure to put a contribution in their 'Collection Skull'!
