Visibility/Location: Small town, but it's hard to miss the cars turning toward the town. Don't remember seeing the flashing arrow sign like in past years.

Wait Entertainment: Not to bad. They had characters outside and inside the guides tried to entertain/scare you.

Length of Event: It took us about 20 min to go through.

Actor Performance: Didn't see to many on the first half of the haunt. The ones I did see didn't scream or yell. It was just kinda like they were their. The seccond half got better with the actors scaring.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: It seemed to go alright. We did see another group going down the stairs as we went up, but it didn't take away from any of the scares.

Appropriate Ages: I would think that maby 7 and older would be alright.

Props / Special FX: The 3-D is cool but the glasses are annoying to hold onto and hard to see out of. Black Hole: always cool. The car is unexpected, but it seems like it has been their a couple years.

Costumes / Make-up: Saw some really cool maskes. The short guy with the top hat was a great costume.

Summary: It is a cool place to goto for entertainment. It has more cool visual effects than scares. Hopefully next year will be scarier. The price was just a tad high for the scare factor, but just rite for everything else.I will be back next year.
