Visibility/Location: EXCELLENT, HAD NO PROBLEM AT ALL. USED MAPQUEST AND THEY ALSO HAD LIGHTS FOR VISIBILITY. THE EXTERIOR OF THE HAUNT WAS EXCELLENT.

Wait Entertainment: SINCE WE WERE THERE ON A MONDAY, WAIT WAS ONLY ABOUT 15 MINUTES OR SO. LOTS OF ENTERTAINMENT WHILE YOU WAITED, HAD FOG AND QUITE A FEW ACTORS SCARING WITH CHAIN SAW, AXE, KNIFE. THEY STAYED IN CHARACTER THE WHOLE TIME TOO, I TRIED TO TALK TO THEM AND THEY WOULDN'T TALK BACK SO "KUDOS" TO THEM.

Length of Event: ABOUT 20-30 MINUTES.

Actor Performance: EXCELLENT AS WELL - HIGH ENERGY, GOOD SCARES (AND I AM HARD TO SCARE), KNEW RIGHT WHEN TO CATCH YOU OFF GUARD.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: NEVER RAN INTO ANY OTHER GROUP AND NO ONE RAN INTO US.

Appropriate Ages: PROBALLY 10 AND UP.

Props / Special FX: VERY GOOD - RIGHT OFF THE GET GO IS THE SLIDE WHICH IS UNIQUE IN A HAUNT. HOW YOU GOT THAT GUY TO APPEAR THAT HE IS CRAWLING ON THE CEILING WAS AWESOME. THE BRIDGE THAT COLLASPES IS GREAT - YOU CERTAINLY DON'T EXPECT THAT. JOB WELL DONE.

Costumes / Make-up: THIS WAS GREAT - MY FAVORITES WERE THE YOUNG LADY IN THE CLOWN ROOM (SHE WAS CREEPY) AND THE GUY ON THE STILTS BUT EVERYONE WAS DRESSED ACCORDING TO THEME AND STAYED IN CHARACTER.

Summary: I AM FROM A HAUNT MYSELF SO I TRULY LOVE TO GO TO OTHER HAUNTS AND SEE THEM. I DROVE ABOUT 1 HOUR AND 40 MINUTES TO THIS HAUNT AND AM VERY GLAD I DID. THE OUTSIDE OF THE BUILDING IS CREEPY LOOKING AND ACTORS ARE RUNNING AROUND SCARING PEOPLE AND SCARY MUSIC IS PLAYING AS WELL. ONCE INSIDE, AFTER GOING DOWN THE SLIDE NOT KNOWING WHAT TO EXPECT, YOU HOLD A ROPE WITH A GUIDE. HONESTLY, I WAS UNSURE OF THIS BUT IN THIS HAUNT I CAN UNDERSTAND WHY IT IS DONE. THERE ARE SO MANY PROPS, SPECIAL EFFECTS, AND PATHWAYS THAT IF YOU DON'T HOLD THE ROPE YOU WON'T BE COMING OUT. IT DOES NOT TAKE AWAY THE SCARE FACTOR AS YOU WOULD THINK IT WOULD. MY GUIDE WAS A YOUNG MAN WHO DIDN'T SPEAK AND SEEMED TO HAVE HOLLOWED OUT EYES LIKE A ZOMBIE (HE EVEN WALKED LIKE A ZOMBIE). BUT AS YOU ARE GOING THROUGH ON YOUR TOUR THE ACTORS WOULD APPEAR OUT OF NO WHERE. VERY HIGH ENERGY, VERY GOOD SCARES, AND LOTS OF SPECIAL EFFECTS TO SEE. IT'S VERY OBVIOUS THE ACTORS LOVE SCARING PEOPLE. DEFINITELY WORTH GOING TO. GOOD JOB - AWESOME IDEAS! I LOOK FORWARD TO COMING NEXT YEAR.

Visibility/Location: Excellent, signs out to follow and people in line and lights attract attention.

Wait Entertainment: Wait was about 35 minutes but line moved pretty quick and entertainment in line was awesome. Clown and chain saw guy was following the cars as they were pulling in and really freaking people out. Some wouldn't even get out of their cars until later. It was cool to watch.

Length of Event: 20 minutes

Actor Performance: Very good, actors were in character and had alot of energy.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: This was also good, as I said we had to wait in line for about a half hour because of the crowd but they did a good job of sending through, we didn't run into any other groups.

Appropriate Ages: 10 and up - really depends on the kid

Props / Special FX: Very impressive, my favorite was the cockroach room. Really creepy.

Costumes / Make-up: Good, alot of creepy masks and some make-up. Probally the majority was masks but they were good ones and themed good.

Summary: I also read the reviews of this house before I made the 1.5 hour drive so I was really excited about going in and so was my friends that came with me. Right in the beginning like I said this creepy clown and chain saw guy was chasing the cars as they pulled in. I also seen one of the monsters hide by the car of a group coming out and freak them out. It was really cool. The inside was GREAT - it was as great as we wanted it to be. The pitch black maze is awesome. Seriously people, you can't see your hand in front of you. You totally have to feel your way through. There's actors jumping out at you constantly, you never know what's coming. Some of the most energetic actors I have ever seen. I don't want to let out too much so I won't say more other than GO TO THIS HOUSE-IT"S AWESOME!
