Visibility/Location: It was easy to see from Weber Road. Good lighting and Sinage.

Wait Entertainment: Not bad. There were only 2 actors walking through the lines, loud rock music and what I believe was a DVD from last year on several TV's in the waitline.

Length of Event: About 20-25 minutes per house. There were two houses included with the general admission price.

Actor Performance: Everyone was very in character!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: I know this is a busy house, but sometimes the flow of the line was like 30 people per group which made abrupt scares hard to execute.

Appropriate Ages: 12+

Props / Special FX: The detail of props/scenes was amazing. I found myself having a hard time to take it all in as we were walking though because everything was so detailed. 
I don't want to ruin the opening scene for anyone but let's just say the special FX were sweet. My only critisism was I really couldn't hear the intro story clearly in either house with all of the other screaming going on in the background.

Costumes / Make-up: The costumes and make-up were also very good and appropriate for every part of the house. There was one guy that walked into a blacklight and his eyes/contacts glowed yellow. It was awesome. The clowns were very creepy and the psycho ward people looked awesome as well.

Summary: I think this house was awesome and worth every penny of the $25 admission. We were only in line for 1.5 hours which is not bad the weekend before Halloween. Also, the houses were long and there were two of them so it was a good bang for your buck! 
After working in a house last year, I don't scare too easy because I know where I would hide. But, this house had amazing actors, visuals, and other deranged fun I have to say, YAY Statesville! I will be back next year.

Visibility/Location: Six Flags is very visable from the highway.

Wait Entertainment: None of the 3 haunted houses had wait entertainment while I was there. However, on the way to one of them there is a "Freak Show" where they do crazy things like step on glass, eat fire, stick fish hooks in thier eyes, throw knives at people etc. That was fairly disturbing, but very cool.

Length of Event: The 3-D house was about 5-10 minutes, the Internal Nightmare was about 10 minutes and the Mosuleum of Terror was about 10-15 minutes long.

Actor Performance: The actors in all of the houses and throughout the park were quite good.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: All houses broke people into small groups so it was a nice flow where everyone could get scared.

Appropriate Ages: Before 5 it is kid friendly, after 5 it is more 12+

Props / Special FX: The inflatable haunted house was neat and unique. The props in the other two were also very good.

Costumes / Make-up: Costumes and make-up was very good. There was a guy on the way to one of the haunted house with a creepy pumpkin face and he scared the pants off some girls in front of us, and I will admit he was quite freaky!

Summary: This event is very fun because the whole park is scary! You can do the rides in the day and hit the haunted houses at night. There are monsters everywhere, the 3 haunted houses are only an additional $15, and the haunted 3-D IMAX movie is free with admission. There is also an "Elvira, virtual roller coaster". This is a fun day out if you like Halloween!
