Visibility/Location: there was one sign on the other side of the road. the police directing the traffic into the parking lot made it easier to find. its a farm, not what i was looking for!

Wait Entertainment: none at all. Just workers telling you where to go and get your money ready!

Length of Event: statesville prison 25 minutes 
house of the dead 15 mintues

Actor Performance: good. Made you feel like you were an inmate at a prison the way they talked to you.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: jammed packed. we got there 15 mins after they opened and there were lines. For $5 extra we skipped the 2 hour wait lines! fasted and best deal! crowded inside the houses, but expected with the number of people.

Appropriate Ages: 12+

Props / Special FX: the best, many different scenes there was a lot to look at and all was very cool

Costumes / Make-up: good, everyone was dressed up

Summary: i drove an hour and a half to get there. got there 15 minutes after open. we were gonna wait in the lines but a guy said for $5 more we could skip the lines. from the time i parked til the time i rolled off the lot i was only there for an hour and a half. it was a good time!

Visibility/Location: hard to find if you haven't been there before. I have been there last year and drive by the location 5 times a week and i still had to make a U-turn to to enterence.

Wait Entertainment: Good, were always taking in character while we waited in line for 3 hours.

Length of Event: 15

Actor Performance: Great. As soon as we got in people were being chased. The people how weren't bothered/scared were caught off guard once.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: seamed like it moved slow while we stood out side in the 46 degree heat ;)

Appropriate Ages: 10+

Props / Special FX: good prop while waiting line line. The 3D effects were the best with the tunnel.

Costumes / Make-up: everyone had some kind of character to fill. no one out of place.

Summary: this was my third time to this location. Kind of had the same layout as the previous years. but if its your first time i think you have a good time. just get there early!
