Visibility/Location: It was very easy to get to right on 53

Wait Entertainment: There was none

Length of Event: 30 minutes tops

Actor Performance: Very lame. I think they had 6-10 actors. There needs to be a lot more!! We walked for a long time and saw no one!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: it was not bad, but they kept sounding off air horns when they sent a group through which was very annoying

Appropriate Ages: my 4 year old daughter could probably handle it. There were lots of kids and I couldn't believe their parents brought them at first and then after it was over, I understood why, because it was very very lame!

Props / Special FX: I was not at all impressed. The guy in the second house made it sound like it was going to be very scary and checked to see if we had heart problems. Anyone with heart problems could handle it

Costumes / Make-up: very lame. they used masks mostly and dumb ones at that. Michael Meyers and the guy from Saw. Very predictable and very disappointing.

Summary: I was extremely disappointed. I was expecting to be scared and I wasn't. We went in the first hallway and it was so dark. You couldn't see anything. They had to have people guide us through because you could see nothing. It was even a little scary. Some guy called me girly. Was that supposed to scare me?

Visibility/Location: soo easy to find..right on rt 53..cant miss it ..its a big golf dome...

Wait Entertainment: a little bit ... but actors in the line were really good..there was this crazy clown running back and forth ..he was nuts..

Length of Event: about 15 mins..thats good for me ..

Actor Performance: everyone in the "EVIL INTENTIONS"were reaLLY GOOD ..THE "HAUNTED mANSION"..THEY JUST WERE NOT INTO IT..THEY WERE JUST STANDING AROUND ...

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: IT WAS BUSY ON OCT 13(SAT)AND HAD NO PROBLEMS W/ ANOTHER GROUP..DIDNT SEE ANY OF THE PEOPLE IN FRONT OF US ..OR BEHIND US..AND WE HAd 8 or 9 people w/ our group..

Appropriate Ages: 18 and older ..not for little kids..they should stay at the haunted mansion..

Props / Special FX: well the "haunted mansion" has alot of props..not very scary..however the "Evil Intentions" didnt have any..they didnt need any cause they get you at every corner..no props needed..and i like it better that way ..

Costumes / Make-up: all the "Evil Intentions" costumes were soo good all very well detailed...the haunted mansion costumes were good for the little kids ..

Summary: overall....i would say go w/ the evil intentions haunted house because it was way more scary than the hanuted mansion.much better at the evil intention group..there all carzy in what they do.. 
there more into it over there ..all of our group had a good time .. all agree that the 2nd haunted house was much better..the eveil intentions haunted house ..

Visibility/Location: easy to get to right off route 53 and was clearly marked

Wait Entertainment: wait was only 5 minutes tops but it was the first week they were open

Length of Event: 45 minutes combined with the haunted mansion

Actor Performance: the actors were not the greatest because they weren't really into it yet as it was early in the season. A couple of the actos said most of them weren't into it yet.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: worked fast, they waited until one group passed and then kept the movement fast and never ran into another group

Appropriate Ages: 12 and up

Props / Special FX: they had some really good effects in the haunted mansion but this attraction was kind of lacking. You had to watch a video in the beginning and I thought it would end up being a lot more scarier than what it was

Costumes / Make-up: they had some really creative costumes but some of them were lacking

Summary: Overall this one was kinda pushing the border of paying too much, but with the combination of the haunted mansion and Evil Intentions it made it worth the money. I would probably wait until it got closer to halloween and the actors might be a little bit more scarier than they were when I went. Overall B-
