Visibility/Location: At the time we came there was plenty of parking available and we only had to wait for about 10 mins to go in.

Wait Entertainment: While we waited we ere entertained by "Jason" with a huge bloody knife.

Length of Event: The entire tour was about 20-25 mins, it tooks us nearly 10 minutes to make our way out of the black hole, and we lost 3 people from our group, who made there way out first!

Actor Performance: The spooks and monsters were scary, I especially liked how they were able to reveal theirselves while we were in the balck hole.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The only time we encountered another group was while we were in the black hole, we got caught up with a group who had lost 3 from their party as well.

Appropriate Ages: appropriate for all ages but parent's suggested for 10 and under.

Props / Special FX: My favorite was when a big Jeep Cherokee came out of the dark, blaring it's horn and lighting up the dark path! Very Spooky!

Costumes / Make-up: The costumes were all Halloween appropriate. My favorites were the ones who would reveal their i.d. in the black hole only when they wanted you to see them.

Summary: The Gilson Haunted School was fun as it has been every year since it opened. They always come with new special effects that fool even someone like me who has been every year since it opened.
