Visibility/Location: Easy to find if you know your way around. My husband had been there before, so we had it easy.

Wait Entertainment: Fantastic! Creepy vampire hissed behind your ear while a man with a chainsaw threatened us while we were standing in line. We also got to laugh at the people leaving the attraction as they were chased through the parking lot by the chainsaw man.

Length of Event: 15 minutes? It seems longer than that, though. The wait was just as long or longer to get in.

Actor Performance: Great! You could tell the actors really got into it, and that creates an extremely memorable experience.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Very nice. Having no guides made it more scary, and we could hear people behind us and ahead of us once in a while, mainly because we kept stopering up the line trying to push each other in front.

Appropriate Ages: Over 10. Having a chainsaw wielded at you isn't really for little kids.

Props / Special FX: I was extremely impressed with the sets. Somebody really put some time and effort into this attraction.

Costumes / Make-up: Pretty darn good, though I saw better later that night in Farmer City.

Summary: My first haunted house, and indeed very memorable! I didn't pee my pants when I saw the chainsaw man, but he made me run for the hills on the way out! Definitely worth a go!

Visibility/Location: Extremely easy to find, as the building is in the downtown and a gang of pirates waving a skull and crossbones flag signal the way.

Wait Entertainment: The pirate crew was excellent. It seems they needed some better lines, but their costumes and accents were impeccable!

Length of Event: 15-20 minutes

Actor Performance: Spectacular! It was apparent everyone was extremely serious about his or her role.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Once again, our group of three started backing up the line when we got turned around in the tunnel. We weren't too close to others for the most part, and had the rest of the time alone. No guides! Yay!

Appropriate Ages: 12 and up. Some gruesome scenes and scary CLOWNS.

Props / Special FX: Best sets I've seen thus far. The set for "The Ring" was amazing. A small kitchen-area looked a lot like the kitchen from the original "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" and it freaked us out quite a bit! The doll room was creepy, too!

Costumes / Make-up: Extremely intricate, down to the cat-eye contacts and whitish contacts of the zombie. Completely realistic zombie, too, by the way.

Summary: Skip the family-style haunted houses. Leave the kids behind. Go here and prepare to be creeped out! Between the intricate sets and costumes and the shapes following you in the darkness, this is what every haunted house should be!
