Visibility/Location: The location was great. The signs lead you to this old, rotted looking school house with music blaring and a huge crowd. It was very easy to find, and there is tons of parking in the cornfield across the street, ( of course the stalks had been removed)

Wait Entertainment: The wait enterainment was very entertaining!There were actors in the line everywhere! The had Michael Meyers, Jason, A FIRE BLOWING vanpire, and a huge guy with a creepy mask and a fairly large axe!

Length of Event: The line probably took an hour to wait in, but it was worth the wait. It took 20 minutes to get through, and it had great scenes, props, and special effects all along the way. They also had the actors in all the right places to get you when you least expected it!

Actor Performance: They always stayed in chacter. They would trick you, scare you, and somehow stay in chacter even when they were scaring and messing with you. Overall the actors were great!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: We did not run into any groups until the pitch black maze, but that is understandable, because that is one of the most confusing mazes to try to find your way out of!

Appropriate Ages: I would have to say appropriate for ages 10 and up.

Props / Special FX: There were many props and special effects. i especially liked the elevator, the spinning room, the 3D maze,and the vortex tunnel.

Costumes / Make-up: The costumes were pretty good. Some of them were very scary, others were ok. Overall, they gave you a good scare in that old, freaky school!

Summary: The Gilson Haunted School was great. It had lots of special effects, great props, and the whole mood of the school freaks you out! It is scary inside the school and out. The scenes and the actors are great, and the scaring was very good too. I recommend this haunted house to anyone who wants a good scare! You will be out off the 20 minute experience in no time when a crazed Jason with a CHAINSAW chases you through the last 3 hallways with his evil, roaring weapon!
