Visibility/Location: You can park close to the place. It was easy to find. And there are signs that tell you the date,location,and also signs leading you to the school.

Wait Entertainment: they had 92.7 The Laser outside live.The waiting room had a scary theme. they had a lot of people trying to scare you in the waiting room.

Length of Event: It took about a half-hour.

Actor Performance: they have very godd timing. The people in the middle and the end of the group get scared as much as the people in the front. They jump out at the perfect time.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: It was o.k. I could understand why another group had to stop because of us. You make kind of a quick turn around.

Appropriate Ages: I think it's more for older kids and adults.

Props / Special FX: They had a really cool circular spinning vortex.I almost fell down in it.And they had half of a car pull out and honk it's horn at you.

Costumes / Make-up: they were all dressed up.Almost all of them had a mask on.And they all had some kind of robe on.

Summary: It was great.The waiting room had a huge guy dressed like Michael Myers.He could tell right off the bat that my step-mom was scared.So, he walked over and my step-mom kind of hid behind him. He just stood there staring at her. He stuck his hand out for us to shake it. My dad did, and he didn't do anything. But when my step-mom did he acted like he was going to cut her hand off. At the end was my favorite part. Out of nowhere, A guy reved up a chainsaw and started chasing after us. I was near the back of our group. I nearly knocked my dad on the ground, ran past my step-mom, and ran through the body bags like they weren't even there.I don't get scared easy either.
