Visibility/Location: The building was easy to spot, but featured an awkward turn that we didn't see until we missed it. Look for a building that says FOR LEASE in huge letters on the front windows.

Wait Entertainment: A couple actors and a couple tv screens.

Length of Event: 8 minutes.

Actor Performance: Some of the actors were very good. That was the best part of this haunted house. The female actors in this haunted house were outstanding.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Not very good. We were moving very slowly and still caught the group in front of us. We slowed down and still caught them several more times.

Appropriate Ages: I don't know, no one under 8 maybe. It wasn't very X-treme and my group agreed.

Props / Special FX: I have to be honest, I just went to Dream Reapers last weekend. This place looked like they went through Dream Reapers and then tried to copy it based on memory. The hellavator was an exact knockoff of Dream Reapers, down to the actor's performance. Hillbillies, a swamp, the boiler room: It all looked copied from Dream Reapers. This was highly irritating. It takes nothing to steal other people's work.

Costumes / Make-up: Nothing exciting. You'll love the costumes in this place if you believe Chucky the doll should be 6'5" and wearing a scream robe. It was also cute the way the hellevator actor was dressed up just like the Dream Reapers Hellevator actor, and gave almost the exact same speech.

Summary: What a horrible, horrible letdown, and incredibly short too. We drove an hour because the reviews were so good on this site. I don't know why the reviews are so high, this place doesn't have one original idea in it. This place was really sad.
