Visibility/Location: Dark and creepy, fairly easy to find, right off main road. They could use bigger or better sign to lead others to site.

Wait Entertainment: OH MY GOD! What is that thing?!?! Good, tall red thing scared me and my friends, it chased us all around the parking lot. Music rocked, coulda been louder.

Length of Event: From waiting to buy ticket to be chased back to my friends car about 1 hour, not bad really. Could have been faster but some of the people in my gruop were moving very slow, like they were afraid.

Actor Performance: The guide was good, felt like they really believed what they were saying, there were 2 scenes that had no light at all, I think that was freakier than having lights and actors. Actors overall excellent I was scared alot, I was told that this year was more "funny" but they had actors jumping out of nowhere scaring the entire group, that was awesome.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: People moved slow, not sure if thats good or bad sign, I think good means that they were afraid of what might be around next corner. We did not run into another gruop but we could heaqr when they were in a scene or 2 in front of us.

Appropriate Ages: hmm, definately not under 10, there was alot of violent screaming and smashing of things, that was quite alarming.

Props / Special FX: Even though 2 scenes were completely black there was plenty to be scared of in those scenes, not knowing and being scared bad is worse than seeing and just being freaked out. Lots of chainsaws!!

Costumes / Make-up: Some good, some not so good, not sure about the costumes in the dark scenes, but then again what I could not see scared me more.

Summary: The whole attraction was scary, from the devil guy to the van guy to the prison to the clowns, I found myself and my friends huddled closely together moving from scene to scene and then practically on top of each other in the scene. Wait time was expected, total length was within reason. Cost was ok to, I had a coupon.
