Visibility/Location: The location is very good. Parking was good as well.

Wait Entertainment: Well we didn't have to wait very long, but there were spooks walking around the short line. Last year when I went, I went closer to Halloween so the line was a lot long, and there were spooks walking around, getting in a good scare here and there.

Length of Event: I think we went through it in about 30 mins.

Actor Performance: The actor performance was pretty good. There were a few younger kids in it, that didn't make it that scary. But don't get me wrong, the older ones made me jump. Some had a lot of the same masks on. But thats ok, they still fooled me.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: We moved smoothly through it. We ran into another group while walking on the stairs. The were entering and we were going to another floor. And then when we were in the maze, we ran into a group, but they made sure we took a different route.

Appropriate Ages: I would have to say no one younger than 7.

Props / Special FX: The props were good. They had a few things that were the same. The same vortex tunnel, Which is totally awesome. They had the maze again, but this time you could kind of see in it. We made 3-4 circles in it because we couldn't find our way out, but hey thats the purpose in a maze.

Costumes / Make-up: The costumes were okay. Some of them had masks on with normal everyday street clothes. Which isn't very convincing. They also had a lot of costumes that they've had in the past. They still scared me. But I've seen them before.

Summary: Overall, Gilson's Haunted School is worth going to. I had a lot of fun. It's a good way to spend time with friends as well as getting a good scare. I recommend going this year! Good Job Gilson's!
