Visibility/Location: The maps provided are all you need . It was realy easy to find. Large signs and 3 story building,You cant miss it!

Wait Entertainment: I got pics of the fire spitter that welcome the guests before they enter. While other spooky maniacs run around getting the blood rushing.

Length of Event: 20 to 30 mins , depending on how long it takes you to get through the dark maze. i think they move the walls , lol. ;)

Actor Performance: Most were good on thier timing but it was late when I went and I think they were a lil tired.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Good but a lot of twists and turns and stairs and speed bumps. But thats cool cause it gives you more time to view the cool props.

Appropriate Ages: 12 n up. Not because of the scare factor but more because there are some setups that are more like a survival show. And little ones have thier own age apropriate haunts they can go to anyway. Lets face it, save the scares for the adults cause the kids get all the candy,lol.

Props / Special FX: They have a realy good team of spooks but the Fx are the best. Im not gonna tell you what happens but if you want 3 floors of scared to death then you wont be left wanting. There are a lot of diferent staging areas and they are all meant to make you lose your mind. And your stomach. Very cool!

Costumes / Make-up: Not too much out of the ordinary. Lots of dark shadows. But the FX makes up for it!

Summary: You can find the pics and my other reviews at my yahoo group:
