Visibility/Location: Very easy to find since I do not know St. Elmo that well. There are signs on highway 40 directing you the way for the Haunted Trail.

Wait Entertainment: Music and campfire. Very nice.

Length of Event: 20+ minutes

Actor Performance: Very nice. They enjoy doing this and look and act very real!!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Very nice!

Appropriate Ages: 8+

Props / Special FX: Awesome. A lot of time has been put in on setting this attraction up. It felt like we were walking into a Freddy Kooger movie.

Costumes / Make-up: Very realistic. Nice!

Summary: I really enjoyed going to this Haunted Trail and will go back next year taking more people with me. I hope it is as good as it was this year. I really enjoyed the characters in this haunted trail and liked the set up of going in and out of buildings.

Visibility/Location: In the old wal-mart building. It was very visible and in a nice location.

Wait Entertainment: None!! Very boring.

Length of Event: 15 minutes

Actor Performance: Very low! I did not see many actors, it was a long maze which could have been good if there were people jumping out and trying to scare us.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Low, my 6 year niece was more scared at last years kiddy haunted house than this years adult one. I was very disappointed!

Appropriate Ages: The adult one was not even scary for children under 5 years of age

Props / Special FX: very nice

Costumes / Make-up: I did not see any

Summary: I was disappointed I know the people who usually run the haunted house. We stood in line for 2.5 hours which is understandable but as we approached the door the workers came out to see the line really long approaching the closing hours and cussed in front of 7 children. I feel like the workers were tired and slacking on their job which was very disappointing for children. I doubt that I will go back next year to this haunted house and will go out of town to another one!
