Visibility/Location: Easy to find if you looked on the website.

Wait Entertainment: Karaoke in the lobby and characters walking thru the lines made the time pass quickly. The tickets were numbered so you didn't have to stand in "line" the whole time. You could go to their snack bar or even go outside for a smoke. Waiting was inside. 

Length of Event: It took about 20-25 minutes to go thru.

Actor Performance: Actors were good. They knew just when to "get you".

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Seemed to flow pretty good. We never saw anyone else, but we could hear them in the other rooms.

Appropriate Ages: I would say not for under 12.

Props / Special FX: Not a lot of pneumatics. Mostly good old fashioned scare tactics. I loved the spinning wheel at the end!

Costumes / Make-up: OK I guess. Didn't really look too close.

Summary: Overall this is a pretty good house! Only waited 40 minutes in line. Well worth the $10 admission price. Great snack bar too! Definitely worth repeating.
