Visibility/Location: The location is perfect for a haunted house! It is in a very small town. It is in an old, run down school house. The outside and even the inside of it has kind of a spooky feeling.

Wait Entertainment: It was very good! There was a guy breathing fire balls, someone in a Michael Myers mask and suit, a guy dragging an ax, and there were a couple of Freddy Kruegers. They would come up to you and just stare at you. At one point, Michael Myers chased a girl down the road when she was just outside of the line.

Length of Event: The wait took awhile but it was so worth it! My friend timed us to see how long it took us to go from the start to the finish and it took almost 15 minutes.

Actor Performance: Very good! They were very creepy and they didn't over do it.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: It was very organized.

Appropriate Ages: It all depends really. But overall, I would say an average of 10 and up.

Props / Special FX: Very realistic!

Costumes / Make-up: One word... scary!

Summary: Overall the Gilson Haunted Schoolhouse was one of the most fun places I have EVER been to! My favorite part was the spinning room, the spinning tunnel, and the elevator. At the end, in order to get out, you are required to go through a maze. There are guides with glowing mouths if you get lost. There are also glow necklaces and refreshments for sale. I highly recommend this haunted house!
