Visibility/Location: The signs from 120 heading east are hard to see and the directions once in the fairground are bot well marked. I live about 10 minutes away and got a little confused.

Wait Entertainment: There were 5 different actors int he wait. We waited in 2 separate areas. Teh "decorated" area and a large empty warehouse. The actors spent more time in the warehouse area. They were good and did attempt to stay in character, but there was one moment when one of the actors pulled the pants down from one of the other workers. There was a full moon out that night! They seemed to focus their attention on about 10 people of the hundreds that were there. The decorated area was much better lots of visuals. Didn't see the wait actors much. Thank goodness for the awesome cheezy horror flicks playing.

Length of Event: Took about 20 minutes or so to get through and then another 10-15 to get through the 2nd part.

Actor Performance: Let me preface this by saying we are in our 30's and visit several haunted houses a year. These actors were great. The costumes were wonderful. They were sneaky, they were reletenless and great scare factor. They made the show. There was one part where one of the actors got a little out of hand, he actually hit my boyfriend in the face and broke his glasses. It was an accident, but it still happened. They actually did touch quite alot. We did not touch them. But overall A+

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The spacing was great. There were 2 times when we did meet up with other groups. Once in the buried alive and the very beginning. I did not see the first part which I am told was really cool because I was in the back of the group. I am 5' 1" and could only see the flashing lights and hear sounds. But My partner loved it. In the 2nd part of the haunting the actors could move the walls and that helped a lot with the flow. Overall very good.

Appropriate Ages: No one under 12 should go.

Props / Special FX: The props were great. Lots of automatic scares. Lots of money spent here. Take your time and walk slowly to take it all in.

Costumes / Make-up: Again costumes and make up were great. Really gruesome stuff and just really great make up. Impressive.

Summary: Overall. Very enjoyable. Take your time. Go early if you don't want to wait. The effects, the actors, music and overall effect is spooky. I can't say we were ever "scared", but there were some great surprises! Some of the actors really took their time, hide well and got ya! I would go again before the season is over. The actors did such a good job I don't think you could expect the same scares in the same places. Happy hauntings!!
