Visibility/Location: I have visited the last few years to I knew where it was and I noticed the signs right off the road which along with the park's lights took me right there

Wait Entertainment: Very Good, quite a few roaming characters which were really intense and got a lot of scares in the crowd which made the wait great

Length of Event: 9-10 min a little longer then past years

Actor Performance: GREAT! Honestly the most intense and in your face actors out there, the Brookfield Jaycees really excel in this category

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Never ran into any other group and this included several stops due to people being scared in my group

Appropriate Ages: Id say 13 and up

Props / Special FX: They always have great artwork and pretty decent low budget special effects, the actors are what did it for me though

Costumes / Make-up: The costumes for the most part fit the character however, I think the past few years the makeup was better

Summary: Overall it gets my vote for the best of the year due to the actors and the overall atmosphere, could be a bit longer and I miss Sally and the Doctor, another great year Brookfield Jaycees, my friends were scared out of their minds and loved it as well THANK YOU!

Visibility/Location: Can be a little hidden if you don't know the area very well. Located in a park, I didn't see any signs posted around the area to direct you.  
But if you mapquest it, you'll find it no problem.

Wait Entertainment: Because the line is outside, there are no props to check out while you wait. Instead, they have some very intense actors who love to work the line and have fun with the customers...they made waiting fun.

Length of Event: After a wait of about 30 minutes (which was great), it was about 5-10 minutes inside, which was much shorter then what I expected...was disappointed that it was not longer.

Actor Performance: Excellent. 
The reason I come to this haunt is the actors. They love to scare people and really get into their charactor.  
A girl was so scared from one of the actors, her sandals came off while she was running from him, and didn't come back for them - if she had, he was waiting for her- patiently hiding behind a building for her. They make this place a lot of fun and make it worthwhile to check out.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Great. They take whatever group you're in - you're not stuck with a large crowd and you will not run into anyone.

Appropriate Ages: 10 and up

Props / Special FX: It is a very basic haunt that does well because of the actor intesety. There is not a lot of special f/x like you would find in other places, but the rooms were nicely done - especially the mask room (very nice).

Costumes / Make-up: Basic when done. There were 2 actors in the first room that didn't wear makeup, which I didn't like.

Summary: We had a lot of fun here - especially watching the people run out of the place at the end - up and over the fence with an actor behind them. 
The actors were awesome and right on target with timing and coming from places you will not expect them to. I even found myself jumping (and screaming) a few times because of the surprise element - not something I do at many haunts. It could've been a bit longer, seemed like we were in and out in no time which was very disappointing. The actors really make this place a lot of fun. If you're looking for a ton of eye-candy it's not the place to check out, but if you're looking for a basic haunt with actors who really enjoy what they do and are intense, definately check it out.
