Visibility/Location: easy to find. directions on internet took you right there. a couple signs would of help to leave last minute question is this the correct turn to take or not.

Wait Entertainment: virtually no wait time. with the some little wait time that was there could be more potential in years to come.

Length of Event: 30 minutes plus. pending on what type of shape you are in. due to length of walking.

Actor Performance: it kinda felt you were in a play or playing the actors in the movies of some horror film.  
 
the actors fit in and played there rolls with the theme well as far as the story line goes.  
 
the outside walking could be filled with a few more ghoals or something.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: the crew were on top of things. each having little bells and radios that fit into the over all theme with out making it feel like a security team watching it all and keep things on track.

Appropriate Ages: more of a family theme the gore that is shown for the littlest of ones is either high enough or hidden enough so the kids don't have direct line of sight but keep the kids intrested in sight of what is able to be seen at there height without seeing the extra gore.

Props / Special FX: overall everything fit well. the props they had someone spent the time making them and put some extra time into them all.

Costumes / Make-up: from the the little movie at begining to end the story that was unfolded made it believable.

Summary: overall, it is more story / movie based. and you are going through it as it is happening.  
 
everything is well layed out and thought out it seems, but just needs abit more outside to help push a more scary setting.

Visibility/Location: Fairly easy to find, just follow their directions on the website. Take it slow, they are country roads!

Wait Entertainment: Music, screaming, and sirens all help in the scare. Then you can hear the distant hum of a chainsaw! Definitely setting the tone for the scare to come!

Length of Event: Nice length, although I wish it could have kept going, although the twenty to thirty minutes was nice. I am thinking of a nice 90 minute movie length, where it feels like you are in a movie! Oh well, that would be a lot to strive for!

Actor Performance: Very good, the slow walking and then all of a sudden quick movement coming after you was a good effect. Rattling chains and moaning, really added to it too!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: They spaced out people pretty good, I would suggest going with a smaller group of people, the less people in your group, the more scared you will be. Leave the party-pooper boyfriend at home!

Appropriate Ages: Their suggestion is not for kids under 13, and I would agree. I definitely think it is more for teens and adults.

Props / Special FX: Chainsaws, old fashioned gas lanterns, blood coming out of the faucets, very awesome!

Costumes / Make-up: Good costumes, and they made sure there was always darkness that lent to the aura of their costumes. I think if there was too bright of lights for you to examine their costumes you wouldn't really see the fearful sight and only the costume!

Summary: I haven't been to a haunted attraction since I was in high school ten years ago, so I was excited for this. It was very good, they did a great job, the characters really played into quite well, all the way down to the security guard that lets you in with the southern bayou accent. Coffins opening and closing, and Dr. Orment's patients following you pleading for help really adds to the suspense, making you hope that it will soon be over with yet leaving you with a craving for more!

Visibility/Location: The location was good, out in the middle of nowhere. Directions on website were good too.

Wait Entertainment: Good. The set-up was very good.

Length of Event: about an hour

Actor Performance: Performance was good, but some actors were predictable.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Good. The group sizes were good.

Appropriate Ages: 10 and up

Props / Special FX: Props were good but like I said, predictable

Costumes / Make-up: Costumes were very well done. The make-up was also stellar

Summary: I would say that this was an overall good place to visit. It was well done and there only a few things that needed to be worked out. But, it was early and with time the performances will improve. There is a lot of potential and I would definitely go again.

Visibility/Location: Scary location--out in the middle of the country. Good directions on the website

Wait Entertainment: Great--these guys are ready to scare everyone--even people who want to 'wait in the car'

Length of Event: without a line, about 50 minutes

Actor Performance: good zombies and creatures in the woods they come out of no where and the actors inside were good too. Great 1st night

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: no problem at all -- small crowd for first night

Appropriate Ages: definately not for the young kids

Props / Special FX: unbelievable--lots and lots of top quality props. Rooms with themes and real items--THE BATHROOM is amazing

Costumes / Make-up: all seemed well done

Summary: A MUST as far as haunted houses go! An adult in the group ahead of us said they actually wet themself! No cardboard walls here--this is a permanent site a real haunted attraction. This place is a must see if you love haunted houses. Even a food stand at the end so you can get a drink to regain your voice from all the screaming!!
