Costumes / Make-up: Hard to tell in darkness, but all seemed to be done very well.

Summary: This is an upcoming haunted site that was well worth the trip.The admission price was reasonable and the props were well done.I even have to admit that the 8 foot tall Frankenstein following me around the parking lot creeped me out. They have made great strides from last year.

Visibility/Location: Located at the cities golf course and park.Not on a main street.

Wait Entertainment: lines are shorter the earlier you get there.

Length of Event: 40 minutes +

Actor Performance: Skits throughout the trail.Some skits are funny some are scary.Actors do well.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Hayrack rides take you thru the park and woods.

Appropriate Ages: Tends to be more for younger children, but good entertainment for all.

Props / Special FX: Props and actors in various locations.All seemed well done.

Costumes / Make-up: Ok...average...some better than others.

Summary: This is not meant to be a real scary event as the haunted houses.It tends to lean more for entertainment for younger kids.It has its monsters and chainsaws and other surprises along the trail.Easy for the elderly as this event is a hayrack ride and there is no walking to see anything.Price is very reasonable.
