Visibility/Location: Once you get to the block you can see all the decor so you know you've arrived at the right place. The ice cream shop at the end of the street is clarly visable

Wait Entertainment: There was no wait. Since it is 2 blocks of decorated yards, viewers just walk up and down the street enjoying the decor.

Length of Event: The beauty is that you can spend as much or as little time as you'd like pursing the decor.

Actor Performance: On the day that I went, there were no actor performances. Being that this is technically a yard haunt, I was not expecting any. However, some creatures creeping about might be a neat idea.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: You can spend as much or as little time as you'd like pursing the decor. Occasionally, a few patrons might stop for longer periods at some displays, but it is easy to just walk around them if you feel the need to do so.

Appropriate Ages: I think it is appropriate for most ages. Adults may want to supervise thier younger children as some of the displays are pretty realistic looking.

Props / Special FX: The props are this haunt's strong point. There are many animatronic characters and props and they look great. There was even a large video screen where they were playing "Frankenstein".

Costumes / Make-up: On the day that I went, there were no actor performances. However the props were dressed very elaborately as though they were actual characters.

Summary: This was a lot of fun to walk through. In addition to the wonderful props, the music and sound effects add a lot to the ambiance of this display. The spirit of Halloween is definitely with the residents of this block.
