Visibility/Location: A Monday night, so plenty of parking. Easy to find. Good directions on website.

Wait Entertainment: One of the employees directed us to a neighboring tavern while we waited. When our turn came up, she personally walked over to the tavern to get us.

Length of Event: One hour

Actor Performance: Jim, the owner was the primary "actor" and was excellent. He was able to use "adult" humor as appropriate and gauged his performance based on our group's reactions. Great dark humor.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: A large group had completely finished before we began our tour so this was not an issue.

Appropriate Ages: The tour can be tailored to fit kids through adults

Props / Special FX: Very cool, built entirely by the owner and operator. Again, lots of dark humor as opposed to just guts and gore that you would typically expect

Costumes / Make-up: N/A

Summary: Ravens Grinn is a blast, especially if you have good people in your tour. I went with just my brother and we toured with another group of four, including one patron who should have earned a salary for his own performance/reactions to the tour. There are two slides inside the house that to me were the "main event". Jessica, who assisted with our tour, was AWESOME. She let us know right away that we would have to wait about half an hour and gave great suggestions to pass the time while we waited, and she personally walked to the bar we waited in to let us know they were all set for our tour to begin. The owner, Jim, expertly tailored his own performance to our particular group. Well worth the $10 admission especially considering the tour is an hour long.
