Visibility/Location: It was very easy to find. There is a huge Lit pumkin and the construction sign says turn left. You cant miss it.

Wait Entertainment: There was a few actors doing there job in the wait line.

Length of Event: 45- 60 minuites It was busy that nite

Actor Performance: Most of the actors were just fine. They have a couple of very young actors in there and that did not do it for me.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The flow was good. They did a good job of seperating the groups and couples.

Appropriate Ages: 13 and older. they do use harsh language in there and there was brief nudity.

Props / Special FX: I saw a lot of the same props they used last year. They need some new stuff and move the old stuff around. A couple of special effects were cool. The make up was great. There were parts where the sensors werent working and some effects didnt trigger.

Costumes / Make-up: What I saw of the costumes were great.It seemed they were lite on actors that nite.

Summary: For the most part everything was fine. When we went to the second part, that is where it got disappointing. Someone kept pulling the fire alarm. I understand safety first and crowd control. The sad thing is this happened twice. On the second time they said they could give us a free vocher to walk through a third time. I saw it twice! A third time would have no effect. I asked for a manager. They said no one was on duty. I asked someone else for a manager and got one. She was nice and understanding but would not make it worth the money. The security was ver mean and bully like. I was calm and non threating, they should be the same. They were threating to take me to jail because I was asking to make it worth my while. I even suggested free food or a couple of shirts. The manager said I could come back for free to go through the second house. So as long as the haunted attraction does not have a glitch you will get your moneys worth. If there is a problem they made their money and you get arrogant security and an empty wallet.
