|Scare Factor: Medium | Atmosphere: Poor|
Visibility/Location: Easy to find
Wait Entertainment: Loud music. Small televisions (that did not work) Two people in costumes (the same two over and over for our 3.5 hour wait)
Length of Event: They changed the lentgh, and it's shorter. Haunted Prison: 10 minutes COD: 5 minutes
Actor Performance: Some actors were agressive, others did not seem to know what they were doing, and there was also a lack of actors. Not one clown to be seen in the clown area.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: POOR! We were constantly running into other groups.
COD was the worst I've seen in 3 years. There was a line to enter, and another 3 waiting areas inside
Appropriate Ages: The language was really cleaned up this year..10+
Props / Special FX: Same stuff from the past three years. Some of the props didn't work
Costumes / Make-up: Painted faces. The best costumes were used by the two actors working the lines
Summary: I read some of the reviews here about the new things at Statesville, so decided to go. I've enjoyed going the past two years, but I was really let down this year. My question is where are the new things?!? Yes the asylum was lengthened a bit (maybe by one room). One of the props from last year lightly sprayed patrons with water (big deal). As I mentioned earlier the length of the event was MUCH shorter, and there were whole scenes we walked through that had no actors! I know how much work it takes to make an event happen, and the costs involved...BUT for what they charge(and how many people attend this event) one would think they would put a bit of the profits back into the upgrage and improvement. The acting lacked depth. I will not reurn to this event, and just wish the reviews were not misleading. Nothing new to see, and it's not longer..it's shorter! Whats frieghtening about this event: the lines and the price.
