Visibility/Location: Easy to find once in Petersburg.

Wait Entertainment: A guy on stilts walked around and interacted with the crowd.

Length of Event: 10 Minutes

Actor Performance: The acting was excellent. All the actors were adults and really into their parts. The actor creativity was amazing. An actor picked up on the name of one of the ladies in our group and just kept calling her by name. It had her freaking out...

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: They had guides. The guides were a wonderful and integrated part of the show.

Appropriate Ages: 10 and up

Props / Special FX: The props and rooms were outstanding. The ghosts are an incredible effect.

Costumes / Make-up: All of the actors had makeup and looked really great. The actors were just top to bottom excellent.

Summary: This was my first time to this event. I drove about an hour and I just LOVED this show. It was WELL worth an hour drive. The actors were perfect and the parts they played amazing. Within our group you were either smiling or screaming the entire time. The interactive guides are such a great addition to the show and the ghosts amazing. The only draw back I can see is the wait was long for the show length. Of course any good haunted house will have an hour wait at the end of October and this show was the best one I have seen in years.
