Visibility/Location: Was a little hard to find at first just because we weren't familiar with Clinton, online directions helped. When you see the barricades you know you're there. Also, you can park anywhere around there.They don't have a parking lot, but there's one next door and street parking available as well.

Wait Entertainment: Not much. They had some monitors where you could watch people in the house. The music they played while waiting was nice.

Length of Event: I think about 15 minutes.

Actor Performance: It was good. There were a few times when we were walking into a scene the actors were talking to each other. Most of the actors were great.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: It was good. The man in the beginning telling you the rules helps set the pace so you don't run into groups. We never ran into a group which was nice.

Appropriate Ages: 10+

Props / Special FX: They really spent a lot of time on this house. It looks great. There's a lot more to it than most houses. Every detail was thought through and it shows.

Costumes / Make-up: They were good. mostly face paint, but still nicely done.

Summary: This is the best house I've been to so far this year. I highly recommend it. It's so much fun and because you don't have a guide walking you through it adds to the suspense. I think this house should finish in the top 3 of the state this year! It's well worth the drive and reasonably priced compared to other houses in the area.

Visibility/Location: Was a little hard to find, but not too bad. A larger sign on the street corner would have made it easier.

Wait Entertainment: There was a man with a knife and a young boy, but they didn't interact with people in line. They basically just walked up and down the line.

Length of Event: waited in line for about 15-20 minutes which was about what you would expect, actual time in the house was about 15 mintues, maybe a little less.

Actor Performance: Most of the actors did a good job of staying in character, which is good.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: I didn't like the rope you had to hold onto. There were 3 people that my boyfriend and I were put with. The way you hold onto the rope had it so my bf and i weren't next to each other. Not complaining about that, but the girl in front of me was pulling on the guy behind me and i spent over half of the house being smashed into walls and into the guy. The rope wasn't long enough so you were right up against people and the guy leading us through was dragging us through very quickly. It would be better if they had him follow behind the group to keep people moving and that way you can take a second to actually look at the scenes. I felt really rushed.

Appropriate Ages: 10+

Props / Special FX: what i actually got to look at, was really nice. they put a lot of time into the sets and there were some neat effects, I just didn't find them scary.

Costumes / Make-up: Nice job, everyone looked put together.

Summary: If you're looking to be scared, I don't think this is the house for you. I am hard to scare anyways, but usually atleast will jump at something, but i didn't here. I felt it was too rushed to enjoy it, and the rope distracts you from looking around. visually, it is very nice. I was let down considering this house was rated #2 in the state last year. I doubt I'll go back and I doubt I'll give it much word of mouth.
