Visibility/Location: Basically in the middle of nowhere. Miles from city lights but well marked signs and yellow beacon you could see for miles. Driving along the dark country roads definately sets the mood early.

Wait Entertainment: None to speak of, but the sounds, lighting effects and continuous screams coming from the barn were definately enough to keep you back on your heels. The bonfire was really appreciated...brrrrrr.

Length of Event: 10-15 Minutes.

Actor Performance: Overall....excellent! Lots of energy and excietement.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Never saw another group through the self guided tour.

Appropriate Ages: 14+ (without adult)

Props / Special FX: Unbelievable lighting and sound effects (especially on second floor)

Costumes / Make-up: Pretty Good.

Summary: This haunted house is operated out of a really old two story barn in the middle of nowhere. The kids were freaked out just getting there on the dark winding one lane roads through the fields and woods. This was our second of three haunts that night and by far the standout of the three. The one thing that stood out the most was the excitement and energy of the actors. Most haunted houses become very predictable where the spooks will becoming from....not this one! I swear some came from thin air. The scares just keep coming throughout the barn and you never really get off of you heals. From the front door to the slide this place rocks.....man I HATE CLOWNS!!!!!

Visibility/Location: Out in a field, but had a flashing light that was visible several miles off. The signs were much more visible this year.

Wait Entertainment: None, but had no real wait.

Length of Event: 10 minutes

Actor Performance: Very enthusiastic. Great energy.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Never saw another group.

Summary: This is a great haunt. The location is creepy, getting you ready for the inside. Not a lot of props, but great use of what they had. The slide is the best!

Visibility/Location: Its in the middle of the country but compared to last year its much easier to find. They had very bright red and yellow signs pointing the way along with a flashing light that we could see from real far away.

Wait Entertainment: Not really any wait entertainment. Just spoke to the friendly people at the door.

Length of Event: It took us about 20-25 minutes.

Actor Performance: High energy. That is about the best way to describe it. Every actor we came to had a high level of energy. They played the part good and most were very freaky.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Flow was very good. Never saw or ran into any other groups.

Appropriate Ages: I would say around 12 and up.

Props / Special FX: Not a lot of of them but the ones they had were cool. The thunder and lightning was awesome.

Costumes / Make-up: Mostly costumes and they appeared to be of good value.

Summary: I went to this haunt last year and really liked it but I think this year was even better. It seemed like they had more actors this year. With every turn someone was there to scare you. Some places inside were extremely dark which was cool. They had a slide that takes you from the top of the haunt to the bottom. That is one of my favorite parts of the haunt. I make it to several haunts each year and this one always tops my list. Great job.
