Visibility/Location: Fairly easy to find with plenty of free parking.

Wait Entertainment: They had entertainment available even though we didn't have to wait in line to enter the attraction.

Length of Event: About 35 min. Actors didn't rush you through.

Actor Performance: The actors are what made this such a great house. They did a great job And put a lot of emotion into it. Actual short performances rather than simple boos and screams.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Flow never got "backed up".

Appropriate Ages: 10 and up. They are good at adjusting performances to the patron's ages.

Props / Special FX: Good, creative scenes. They did a great job on a lower budget than many of the other attractions.

Costumes / Make-up: Overall good. Costumes and makeup matched the roles that the actors were playing.

Summary: We went to this after attending two of the "big" haunted attractions earlier in the night. It was nice not being rushed through just to keep a line moving. You were given the time to appreciate all of the work that went into it. We preferred it over the big budget houses.
