Visibility/Location: All I can say is.. watch out for the cops! Got pulled over going in and got pulled over going out of town. Lucky for us, two different drivers so both got off with a "warning". Place was easy to find, lots of signs.

Wait Entertainment: Nothing really, there was a guy in the "graveyard" that was suprising. Had a movie for us to watch while we waited couldn't hear the sound very well, since it was outside. Not long of a wait though.

Length of Event: 20 Minutes not counting waiting outside

Actor Performance: I would have to say this is the strong point of "Mayberrys" haunted house. They have CLOWNS! I really don't like clowns that much. There something I think they thought was supposed to be a transporter or something. It really didn't go with the whole place. There was also a fat guy in a blue room that was a little freaky but in a good way. He must be an actor from the theater(plays and stuff) that we saw. Maybe I will go back if they put on a play as good as that guy.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: We bumped into the group ahead of us one time, but they were all girls and guys that had bunched up after they got inside. We scared them pretty bad.

Appropriate Ages: 12+

Props / Special FX: Fog, Lights, Music and it was cool the campfire smelled like smoke or the building was burned out not sure which

Costumes / Make-up: Some good makeup, not hot but pretty good. The clowns were down though. Scared me bad. Also some of masks I had not seen before, either really old or really new.

Summary: DRIVE THE SPEED LIMIT! No joke got pulled over going in and out of town. Thought that the place pretty good considering there are only 1000 people in the whole town. I think half of them were working there. I would say it is worth an hour or two drive. We went on to another haunted house after this so it was a good trip over all. The biggest let down was my girlfriend and I were wondering what "Harvest of the flesh" was all about. When we get there it was all about nothing. I was expecting more from that line I guess. Would have been cooler to have something to back it up. Overall, I have a friend that wants to go and see it. It was good enough I would drive to see it again.
