Visibility/Location: Very easy to find, you cannot drive past it and miss it.

Wait Entertainment: Not bad, I bought the fast pass so this is not that relevant to me.

Length of Event: 10 minutes waiting with fast pass, 15 minutes to walk through the whole thing.

Actor Performance: I felt that this was not as good as it could have been. Most of the actors simply stood on the other side of a turn and screamed in your face when they saw you. Very few actually played a convincing role. Many of the actors didn't even react and looked bored. A lot of the actors were not sized properly for their roles.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: This was not bad, we ran into the group in front of us several times though.

Appropriate Ages: This is definitely targeted towards junior high and older.

Props / Special FX: They had the same props and SFX that they've had for years. The place is definitely not suitable for anyone with any kind of disability because they have to stoop down in several places because the ceiling becomes only 4 feet high.

Costumes / Make-up: Most costumes were fairly basic and did not have much detail.

Summary: I liked everything outside of the haunted house, very thoughtfully done. I do not recommend this place if you have gone before because it is very similar to the way it was setup the last few years. Additionally, the actors were not convincing and the entire haunted house was not dark enough. Be aware that the actors use alot of profanity directed towards you. The bang for the buck was definitely not here. Way too expensive for the poor acting.
