| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: Very High | Atmosphere: Very Good|
Visibility/Location: It was very easy to find the building since it has a huge front entrance and it is right on the street lit up.
Wait Entertainment: There were tv's in the lobby with different stuff on them that helped keep the wait entertaining. There was one actor in a brown robe costume that was very entertaining to watch scare people in line.
Length of Event: It probably took us about 20 min. to go through the entire haunted house
Actor Performance: The actors were amazing, very intense. Sometimes when I've been to a haunted house half way through the night the actors are starting to get tired but these were still intense and in your face. Great Job!
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: We never ran into a group but there was a group of kids that were behind us that were just running through the entire thing and ran into our group towards the end.
Appropriate Ages: They recommend 12 and older. Seeing how scary it actually was I understand why they gave that warning. I did see some younger kids in line but them seemed to be able to handle themseleves.
Props / Special FX: There was a wide variety of props including some rather large props (like a car) in places I wasn't expecting. Some rooms were more detailed than others but none of them looked like they were just thrown together.
Costumes / Make-up: The costumes were pretty good. There wasn't any costumes that I saw that looked like they were picked up from Wal-mart or something. The costumes fit the scenes very well and the make-up on everyone throughout was impressive.
Summary: I recommend this haunted house to everyone. It is a bargain at $8 and is the best haunted house in the DeKalb area in years. I heard that this was there first year but you couldn't tell. If this was there first year than I can't wait to see it next year!
