Visibility/Location: The town is truely an oasis in the desert. There are so many back roads filled with barns that it was easy to get lost. I never saw the signs but once we found it, the house you knew you stumbled into something amazing.

Wait Entertainment: Awesome! There is a lot to look at! Statues, art, spooky automobiles! Seriously every square inch of this place has something to feast your eye on. He has a war memorial, cars, monster sculptures...

Length of Event: almost 2 hours.

Actor Performance: Jim was the only actor but he was a treat. I don't know how he does this 360 days a year!!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: slow. I was disappointed though because we had a big group and then late comers came in. It was too much! not everyone could fit in the room and I did not see all the exibits.

Appropriate Ages: Yes! There were young and the old. Howeevr the old were VERY slow and caused me to miss a lot of exhibits

Props / Special FX: Omg! way too many to list. I Loved the dark tunnels and crawling in a hearse. The slide was amazing. You literally feel like you are a bag of dirty laundry being launched into a laundry shoot from h--e--double-hockey-sticks (censored) I was terridied going down into the haunted cellar

Costumes / Make-up: Jim wore some silly get ups. We had another guide dressed like an englishman who spoke with an accent. He was really cute too!

Summary: Go! Seriously! If you are a spook house fan, go! It's unique and is well worth the money!Thsi is truely the Addams family! It's so neat for this man to invite us into his life!

Visibility/Location: it was pretty easy to find, and it was in a cool old mansion

Wait Entertainment: there really was no wait but the owners did a good job hyping us up

Length of Event: fairly long, it's basically a tour of these people's home

Actor Performance: very good, they were very into it and really got us going

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: they only took in small groups of us at a time which made the experience a little more personal

Appropriate Ages: i'd say all, it wasn't scary, more interesting i would say and i think even kids would enjoy it

Props / Special FX: pretty good, alot of creepy antiques and stuff

Costumes / Make-up: i don't think they even had any on

Summary: i was pregnant when we went and we still had a good time. the hosts were wonderful and really got into it. they did a great job decorating their old home to really create a type of creepiness you only find in a actual haunted house. it would be a great place for a family haunt
