Visibility/Location: easy to find as we went there last year, but they moved the place to buy tickets that was hard to find

Wait Entertainment: the entertainment was kinda funny because the guy was only scaring the girls

Length of Event: about 10-15 min

Actor Performance: I think they could have tried to be more scary instead of just yelling get out of my house over and over

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: the flow was fine, it could been slowed down some

Appropriate Ages: 5 or 6

Props / Special FX: not much other than the spinning boxes, I thought that was good

Costumes / Make-up: mostly masks, very little make-up, you might want to stay away from the movie type masks

Summary: to be quite honest we thought that the place was better last year just being kinda plain, the stuff this year was like put some stuff over there and some here with no reason behind it. we paid the price for a rush pass but would not do that again.
