Visibility/Location: Very easy to find...good directions.

Wait Entertainment: They had a tv outside which I thought was pretty awesome. At first I was disappointed b/c it was just the Simpsons, but then I realized it was the Halloween Special so that made it good.

Length of Event: It was about 15 minutes long

Actor Performance: Some of the actors got really into...which I loved. But some of them just kinda popped out and then they were would have been better if they would have followed up on that.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The actors helped with keeping us away from the group ahead of us. But unfortunately that didn't prevent us from running into them time after time. And the group behind us ran into us a few times as well. They were sending people through too quickly, especially since there was no line outside.

Appropriate Ages: 10 and up

Props / Special FX: I always love the attention to detail at this haunted house. It's amazing.

Costumes / Make-up: usual.

Summary: I was slightly dissappointed. They had the same layout from last year...and the same ending. I wasn't scared like I had been in years before and I didn't like how much the actors touched me. I was shoved by one at a certain point. But I always love their decorations and doesn't get any better. The girls that went with me had never been and they that made it worth it.

Visibility/Location: The event was very easy to find...right off of the main street in town. There was some parking and I got lucky with a great spot.

Wait Entertainment: There were a few characters outside for wait entertainment. Unfortunately the groups that were in line did not seem to get scared. I felt that they were there more as crowd control.

Length of Event: It only took our group about 5 minutes to go through the haunted house.

Actor Performance: They were obviously short staffed. There were several actors/actresses that really got into their part. One woman in particular played her roll as a voodoo woman extremely well. BUT there was not a scare in this room. I didn't know how it fit in with the rest of the haunted house, or with a haunted house at all. Also, there were several younger people in the haunted house, maybe 12 and below, and unless they are playing as a clown, I personally do not find them to be scary.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: They spaced the groups out very well. We did not run into the group ahead of us and when we had some difficulties finding our way through the haunted house the actors helped us through.

Appropriate Ages: Any age.

Props / Special FX: The props and decorations in this haunted house were done very well. I felt that they spent a lot of time on the details, which does help. They had snow machines which can create an awesome visual and they had everything set up very well.

Costumes / Make-up: I was slightly disappointed with costumes. It seemed like the majority of the characters were just a random mask with a black cape/sweat suit. Personally, I get scared from people like Michael Myers and Jason...not some random masks.

Summary: Overall I was slightly disappointed. The fact that they were understaffed hurt the scare factor. There weren't any really good scares. And the biggest disappointment was that there was not a single chainsaw in the entire thing. The ending definately needed some work, you just crawled out and you were done. I will say that their attention for detail was amazing and that they had a decent set-up.
