Visibility/Location: a little out of the way but worth it

Wait Entertainment: very little waiting

Length of Event: almost 2 hours to see it all

Actor Performance: the kids were great

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: good flow

Appropriate Ages: all ages

Props / Special FX: nothing too techno but very ggod

Costumes / Make-up: make up was very good

Summary: a little pricey but worth it with all there was to do including a train ride ,a hay ride, a really neat underground cave and watch out for the cornfield maze--it'll scare even those who dont think they can be scared(me for one), it couldn't have been any more enjoyable, also my wife lost her watch and it was found and mailed back to us, please dont think that the "medium" scare factor in any way takes away from this place, that just makes it enjoyable for all ages, get there early and you can enjoy a great meal too

Visibility/Location: It was out in the country. A little difficult to find but not too bad.

Wait Entertainment: There was lots of entertainment. I really enjoyed this part. My girl got more scared in line than anywhere

Length of Event: It was pretty short. In the neighborhood of 15 - 20 minutes. I was kind of bummed out when it got to the end.

Actor Performance: The actors were good, I really liked the insane guy. He really acted "insane". 

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: This was another problem. There was not a whole lot of people there, but I ran into the group ahead of me and the group from behind me caught up. A real bummer.

Appropriate Ages: I would say that no one under 15 should come, they say that kids as young as 12 can come but I wouldn't reccomend it.

Props / Special FX: There were quite a few cool looking props, but nothing that couldn't be found in a local shop or easily on the internet.

Costumes / Make-up: There was a LOT of good makeup. I would say that this was the highlight of the whole thing, being able to see really good makeup.

Summary: Overall, I would say it was just average. When I went not all of the attractions were actually "running". It bummed me out that I paid full price but still only got half a show. I didn't know it until I had waited and got my tickets.
