Appropriate Ages: 13+

Props / Special FX: You can tell as soon as you arrive at the house entrance they are going to be good. They do not disappoint either. pretty good job

Summary: For what you pay it will not get much better. Both this house and Xtreme Hauntings are in a close distance if you want to get a really good scare visit both because these are the best two houses i have been to in years.

Visibility/Location: If you are on the right road you will not miss it.

Wait Entertainment: A couple actors the will catch a few people off guard while waiting.

Length of Event: 10-15min

Actor Performance: Actors all do a great job almost never break character. Only one that was supposed to be missing his eyes(blind) managed to ask my girlfriend for her glasses trying to flirt a lil he was lucky the place is loaded with cops and security.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: In the house everyone will more than likely end up in groups of 2 by the end of it all. Never bumped into another group either.

Appropriate Ages: 13+

Props / Special FX: Props and special Fx are some of the best you will see. I will not ruin it and give detail though.(read summary)

Costumes / Make-up: Great job very nicely done

Summary: This haunted house is about the best you will get for your money. I came up all the way from chicago and it was worth every dollar. You will be amazed once you are done waiting in line actually even in line the monitors with movie clips will keep you haunted. I do not want to give detail all i can say is go once you are done reading this.

Visibility/Location: If you are familiar with the area is guess it will be easy to find. I did mapquest coming from Chicago and it sends you the wrong direction when making a turn from arlingtion onto devon. Went back to the intersection and happened to notice a sign they had for the house on one of the poles near the gas station. Just be carefull to look for the signs and you will be ok. (Signs could be a bit more visible though)

Wait Entertainment: No actors or music playing outside but the ticket both may give a few people a laugh or two. Ill let those that attend figure out why.

Length of Event: Took about 30-40 minutes to walk through the entire thing.

Actor Performance: The actors all know there roles very well and do a pretty good job at them. The only negative thing i will say is that the house is a bit short staffed and needs a few more actors.(this would easily intensify the scare factor.)

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Flow in this house is great you may run into a group lost in one of the mazes but the actors will find a way to seperate everyone.

Appropriate Ages: 13+

Props / Special FX: I have seen better props at other houses but that does not make a difference they do a good job with what they have here. Special Effects are done pretty well and compliment each of the rooms/mazes.

Costumes / Make-up: Costumes and make up looked pretty good nothing negative that stuck out to me.

Summary: I had attended this house about 3years ago and attended because of the reviews given on this site this year. There is a major difference in most sections and it is sure to be worth what you pay. Way better than 3years ago the only area that is in need of actors is the 3D section.(Improve that area and the scare factor would easily be above the rest)
