Visibility/Location: Good. Easy to find. They had some monsters roaming the street so you can't miss it.

Wait Entertainment: There wasn't a line when we got there so we didn't need any, but like i said above there were 3 or 4 monsters outside.

Length of Event: 10-12 min.

Actor Performance: OK. I don't think their timing was that great. I only jumped once the entire time.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Good. We did run into the group in front of us once but it was more of the groups fault because they were moving really slow.

Appropriate Ages: 8+

Props / Special FX: As far as Special FX goes they didn't have much but strobe lights. The props were good. The rooms were made up well.

Costumes / Make-up: This part was good. Mostly masks but some had paint. Didn't have any complaints here.

Summary: I read the reviews before I went so I thought this was going to be better than it was. It was getting good reviews and I was let down. Not a bad haunted house. I guess I was just expecting more.  
 
There was way too much dark maze and not enough scares and rooms. I think it would go a long way to cut the maze down and add a couple rooms with scares.  
 
Price was right at $6. 
 
I've heard it's been getting better througout the years so I'm looking forward to the improvements for next year. Thanks guys and girls!

Visibility/Location: Good. Just follow the directions from the website.

Wait Entertainment: Had one guy in a straight jacket that was really good. Never broke out of character.

Length of Event: 15 min.

Actor Performance: Their performance wasn't bad but the rooms are huge so you can see every scare coming.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: They have a guide so you'll never run into the group in front of you.

Appropriate Ages: 7+

Props / Special FX: Props were decent. Strobe lights for Special FX.

Costumes / Make-up: Good. They had a good mix of masks and make-up.

Summary: If you go to this event skip the haunted house and do the haunted maze.  
 
The maze takes about 25 min. compared to the haunted house taking 15. They are $5 a piece. The haunted house isn't worth it. The maze is. 
 
Any haunted house that has a guide lacks in my opnion. But this was really lame. My girlfriend only screamed once and that is unusual. I didn't even come close to jumping.  
 
The maze only has 4 or 5 people in it but they do a good job. They move around a lot and scare you more than once.  
 
My advice to the haunted house part is to lose the guide. Don't be afraid to scare people. That's what they come for. We didn't come to stand and talk to the actors in the room. We came to be scared. Shrink the room sizes and you could more than double the rooms and scares.
