Visibility/Location: It was really easy to find. And it was only about 25 minutes away from where I live so it was nice for us.

Wait Entertainment: The wait was about 40 minutes or so, they had some pretty spooky people wandering around...they also do some scary things

Length of Event: 20 minutes? maybe

Actor Performance: Quite good. They were all pretty convincing.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Went pretty well, we did end up running into our other group of friends, but it didn't really bother us

Appropriate Ages: this year i would say 8 & up

Props / Special FX: The props were amazing. Some parts weren't very scary and were more of a visual effect thing to make u feel kind of dizzy

Costumes / Make-up: Like I said before, they had great costumes, they had a great fake Micheal Myers. Along with Jason. Overall they were pretty good.

Summary: Gilson's Haunted School was the first haunted house i had ever been to. I liked it, but it didnt scare me that much, Boy Scouts did a great job at setting it up. I think it was designed for littler kids this year. The room with the hanging heads was good, and the hallway of body bags, the hangman, and of course the guy chasing you out with the chainsaw was good too!
