Visibility/Location: The location was very easy to find. The big blowing ghosts were a nice touch.

Wait Entertainment: We had V.I.P. passes so we can't really comment other than there didn't seem to be too long of a line with it being a Sunday.

Length of Event: We were the first ones to go through so we got to take a bit longer to look at the props and all. In all it was about 20 to 25 minutes.

Actor Performance: The actors did a wonderful job. They were startling, and full of spirit without being too in your face.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The flow was steady without being too rushed. It gave you time to take a good look and make sure you got to enjoy.

Appropriate Ages: I would have to say it was more for teens through any adult age.

Props / Special FX: The props and effects were fantastic.

Costumes / Make-up: You could tell the actors went all out to look as realistic as possible. Great job done by all, even the dog!

Summary: I would deffinately recommend Dream Reapers to anyone wanting to experience a good time. The wait you usually have for a good time is well worth it and the cost was very reasonable for the entertainment. We do different haunted houses each year and it was deffinatly one that will go on the top of our list of houses to visit again in the future. We had a great time.

Visibility/Location: Statesville is easy to find and lots of parking is available.

Wait Entertainment: We had V.I.P. passes so we only had about a five minute wait. The lines weren't too long with it being on a Sunday.

Length of Event: It lasted about fifteen minutes in the first house and about ten in the second.

Actor Performance: The actors did a very good job in general but there were some that were a bit too in your face.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The flow, if anything, was too rushed. It was a bit hurried for trying to see the props and take a good look around.

Appropriate Ages: I would deffinately rate this for older teens and up. It is based on a prison and it does have some foul language and degradation.

Props / Special FX: The props and effects that we actually had the time to look at were great.

Costumes / Make-up: The costumes and make-up were terrific. A lot of glowing in the black lights.

Summary: This is the second year we have done Statesville, and in all I can't complain. It was a really good time. I do feel they get a bit too heavy on the fog and smoke machines and need to slow the flow a bit. I would deffinately recommend it as worth the money to all.
