Visibility/Location: We ended up getting lost on the way there. The country roads are hard to find, but once we saw a sign to the place it was no problem.

Wait Entertainment: The wait wasn't bad at all. We waited 30 minutes to load the first train. A little feedback would be to have some actors working the crowd or maybe some concession stands.

Length of Event: The whole event was about 1 hour long. Granted some of the time we were riding on the train to get to the next haunted train.

Actor Performance: I would have to say that this is where they did their best. All the actors stayed in character and followed you without saying anything. Which to me is creepy in itself. Awesome makeup on some and great masks on others.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The flow was not bad...waited a little to long in the first train when we had to read the sign, but I am sure they wanted us to not run into the first group.

Appropriate Ages: I have three boys under 10 and I would not bring them to this. I would not bring any child under 13 to this event.

Props / Special FX: I would have to say this is where they could have improved. I felt they could have had more startle scares (sounds). Considering this is their first year not a bad job.

Costumes / Make-up: The ones in makeup were awesome. I especially liked the little mummy girl. The masks were tough because you could see the guys hair around it. He needed like a hood or something.

Summary: All in all the event was definitely worth ten dollars. I think they could have used a few more actors while loading the trains or in the wait area. Awesome idea with the vintage car due to the tight squeeze through out the train.
