Visibility/Location: Sign in front of school was well lit, although mapquest had us turn right on Old Mchenry instead of left(From Quentin). It is definitely left!! Plenty of parking.

Wait Entertainment: There was music and karaoke available. Inside waiting was definitely a plus since it was raining outside!

Length of Event: We were inside the house about 30 minutes. They marked our hands with the time as we went in.

Actor Performance: Very nicely done! Timing was everything. Just when you thought you knew what was coming, whammo!! They got you again!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: We never saw another group while inside, came close once, but the actors kept you engaged to keep you separated.

Appropriate Ages: Definitely not for the faint of heart! I'd say 12 or older.

Props / Special FX: Good use of lighting and fog. I love that spinning wheel! It's always my favorite part.

Costumes / Make-up: Costumes were good. Makeup was outstanding! Lots of blood and gore though.

Summary: This is my favorite house this year! Lots of surprises. You don't just follow a path through the house, you actually have to find your way out of many of the rooms. Not an easy task! Very unique!

Visibility/Location: Signs were good.

Wait Entertainment: Nothing to speak of. Some actor was outside walking through the parking lot.

Length of Event: We were in and out in about 12 minutes.

Actor Performance: Not many actors in the house. They didn't really scare us much.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Never saw another group inside.

Appropriate Ages: I'd say 10 & up.

Props / Special FX: Had a couple of neat things. The car horn was pretty cool.

Costumes / Make-up: Costumes were pretty average. Makeup was ok. Guy (or girl?) in parking lot was kind of creepy.

Summary: A smaller scale house than I usually like, but the price was cheap. Mostly dark hallways, not a lot of scare. Too bad it was raining the night we went.
