Visibility/Location: It is very easy to find. There are signs at highway 40 and also right in front of park.

Wait Entertainment: Wait entertainment is good-characters mingle with crowd-music playing, campfire, concession stand selling hot chocolate, candied apples, hot dogs etc.

Length of Event: it takes about 20-30 min to go through the trails, depending on how fast you run!

Actor Performance: The actors are very convincing. In one of the houses there is quite the theatrical performance going on. They have a torture chamber that is awesome.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The flow through the park is good. You are sent in groups of 6-8 with a glow stick as your only lighting. There are guides throughout the park that help navigate.

Appropriate Ages: There were all ages out there last night, from very young children (some didn't make it all the way through) to elderly folks who enjoyed it. I would recommend not bringing children under 5. It really depends on the particular child though.

Props / Special FX: They have great sound effects, lots of fog, strobe lights, CHAINSAWS!!! ,an electric chair, and many more surprises

Costumes / Make-up: Costumes and make-up are believable. Many different characters throughout the park.

Summary: I recommend this place for a different Halloween experience. You not only get the excitement of 3 different haunted houses, but also a spooky walk through the woods. It has a paved trail that goes through it. Go check it out!!
