| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: Very High | Atmosphere: Very Good|
Visibility/Location: It is located right by the casino, with a hearse and other marked vehicles parked on the street. go down the stairs between the buildings (follow the signs)
Wait Entertainment: I think they always do great in this area--their actors really commit to scaring the patrons. Especially the werewolf (love the beard this year!).
Length of Event: 20 minutes
Actor Performance: Excellent, as usual. I don't know where they find their actors, but they are 100% committed to scaring the patrons walking through and they don't resort to the typical scream in your face scares (which only annoys me--not scary). They use some creative diversion techniques
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Excellent again--we couldn't even hear any groups before or after us
Appropriate Ages: 13+
Props / Special FX: Wonderful. Just by having their haunt in the basement gives it that creepy industrial feel, and all of their props continue to support that theme. They also use light and darkness to keep you disoriented--wonderful job! It really is pitch black through much of the haunt, and when it isn't you find yourself straining to see where you are.
Costumes / Make-up: Again, excellent! I love that all of their costumes and makeup stay with the theme of "Imus and Al". Great mutated looks for all of their actors :)
Summary: I have to say, we've been going to this haunt every year that they have been open and I think they outdo themselves every year! Each year is completely different, so repeat patrons can't predict the scares based on past years. My husband and I are usually hard to startle, and we were caught off guard throughout the house. Great job! My favorite attraction this year, and every year. And I think it may be their best year yet!!!
