Visibility/Location: Easy to find if you know your way around. My husband had been there before, so we had it easy.

Wait Entertainment: Fantastic! Creepy vampire hissed behind your ear while a man with a chainsaw threatened us while we were standing in line. We also got to laugh at the people leaving the attraction as they were chased through the parking lot by the chainsaw man.

Length of Event: 15 minutes? It seems longer than that, though. The wait was just as long or longer to get in.

Actor Performance: Great! You could tell the actors really got into it, and that creates an extremely memorable experience.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Very nice. Having no guides made it more scary, and we could hear people behind us and ahead of us once in a while, mainly because we kept stopering up the line trying to push each other in front.

Appropriate Ages: Over 10. Having a chainsaw wielded at you isn't really for little kids.

Props / Special FX: I was extremely impressed with the sets. Somebody really put some time and effort into this attraction.

Costumes / Make-up: Pretty darn good, though I saw better later that night in Farmer City.

Summary: My first haunted house, and indeed very memorable! I didn't pee my pants when I saw the chainsaw man, but he made me run for the hills on the way out! Definitely worth a go!

Visibility/Location: Easy to find, signs along the way keep you on track.

Wait Entertainment: A little redundant with 3 people carrying chainsaws. Was scary at first but then lost some appeal, mostly because of gas fumes.

Length of Event: Very worth the wait and money spent. Felt like we were in there a while.

Actor Performance: Nicely done. Everyone we came across knew how to get a good scare out of you. The lady in white sheets scared me the most and the man shaking cans at the funeral came in on a close second.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: No wait once inside. Never saw anyone else but the people in our group. That made it really scary.

Appropriate Ages: 10 and up

Props / Special FX: Music was great and props were excellent. They were low budget props but it got the job done. I was screaming and laughing the whole way through.

Costumes / Make-up: Nicely done, although I can't say I always had my eyes open.

Summary: Definately worth a visit this Halloween season. I plan to go again next year. I was excpecting a slight scare and came out having an excellent time. I kept jabbering all the way back to the car.

Visibility/Location: Very easy to find. There were signs for it as soon as you got off the interstate.

Wait Entertainment: This was a huge plus, had many people outside wandering around. They were even walking by road harassing cars. There was also a Suburban that was full of kids that didn't want to go and a bunch of them surrounded the car, funny stuff hearing them scream.

Length of Event: The wait time was about 20 minutes cuz of the intermission, and it lasted about 10 minutes.

Actor Performance: All the actors were volunteers, so they were pretty good considering that fact.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Flow was very good. We never saw another group.

Appropriate Ages: 10 and up

Props / Special FX: The props weren't all that great, but you really can't expect extravagant props for it being a Kiwanis benefit.

Costumes / Make-up: Costumes were really good, especially one of the guys who was dressed as a vampire.

Summary: Overall I had a really good time. There were many kids there, and one group of them only lasted about 2 minutes and they turned around and left. The outside entertainment was the best IMO. One actor chased a group of girls all the way to their car, great stuff.
