Visibility/Location: Very easy to find

Wait Entertainment: There wan't any other than a few security workers outside that were quite funny but there wasn't much of a wait they got us into the house in a timely manner.

Length of Event: 30-45min, but felt longer.

Actor Performance: Very Good!!! They stayed in "character" the whole time!!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Very good!! We never ran into a group.

Appropriate Ages: +13 there were children outside crying

Props / Special FX: The outside props were much better but this Haunt focused on good scares and acting as opposed to props and animatronics.

Costumes / Make-up: No make-up was used that I can recollect but the masks were very good and genre related. The costumes were also very good.

Summary: This was the second haunted house that I have been to this season, it was very good, and I was very impressed! Over all this was the best haunted house that I have been to. Was a very good scare, and very entertaining, well worth the drive and money!! (i drove 1.5 hours both ways) Not to give anything a way, but if chainsaw and running machinery in your scares isn't your thing this isn't the "Haunt" for you.

Visibility/Location: Not bad, there are signs telling you how to get there.

Wait Entertainment: There were spooks outside the house when I was there as well as a small concession stand.

Length of Event: 20-25 minutes but there are outside spooks so its not bad.

Actor Performance: Overall the actors were amazing a few very loud screamers. All the actors were in character when i attend the house.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Part of the tour it was good and part of the time it was not. But i think we had a slow group in front of us and a fast one behind.

Appropriate Ages: 13+ There were lots of children crying and one of the kids in my group asked to be let out.

Props / Special FX: Lots of really good animatronics and special effects. Also very good use of lighting and strobes.

Costumes / Make-up: The make-up is done very unique and almost every spook is differant. Some of the masks are a little generic though. But there use of make-up and prosthetic features(noses, scars, ears, etc.) is absolutlely amazing.

Summary: A very good Haunt, admission price fair. I had a very fun time when I went. Most of the scares seemed well thought out and unique. This house is most definately one of genuine design, it was well thought out originally, its all from a movie or book. I had a blast and the scares were very good, make-up also good. A good Haunted house to visit.
