Visibility/Location: Right off of North Ave. you could see it clearly because of the snake-like line wrapping almost 1/4 mile around the surrounding buildings.

Wait Entertainment: Average, although they could've hired a couple more actors to spice things up. The guy in the wheelchair with a bloody nose was funny. He got lucky too! A hot chick was sitting on his lap and he was doing wheelies all along the line.

Length of Event: Not counting the 2 hour 30 min wait? uhm, about 15 minutes.

Actor Performance: I was thinking of getting my money back because in the strobe light room the girl wasn't looking and headbutted me in the nose while walking backwards!!@!@ i was ready to choke a female dog! Hillbilly scene was cool, especially the roasted pig and bloody girl in the bathroom.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Good, we never bumped into another group although we did stay inside the alien whirling tunnel for about 2 minutes. I felt drunk

Appropriate Ages: Any age group can visit this house. Actors had the basic "jump out and say BOO" technique at about every scene and that startled me at times.

Props / Special FX: Very good. I can see why they charged us $15 for this visit because of all the detail in each scene. The special FX were good and there were certain smells that were specific to each room.

Costumes / Make-up: Very good, although most of them weren't scary.

Summary: Actors seemed a bit tired and passive. Each time we went into a different room they jumped out at you and left you alone once you got passed them. I was frequently looking back to see if anyone of them actually were trying to scare us by following us, but only one did. This house is more eye pleasing than scary. The detail inside the house was amazing, but I wanted to get the s*** scared out of me and was disappointed. Next on the list is a haunted corn maze. Not worth the $15, but I would pay about $8 for this haunt.
