Visibility/Location: The location was pretty easy to find, thanks to GPS. They also had some signs and props up, outside of the building.

Wait Entertainment: The upstairs waiting room had no entertainment. Once you were put into a group, and led into the old movie theatre in the basement, they had some horror flicks on. There were very few people there, our wait was about 15 minutes to start.

Length of Event: 10-12 minutes.

Actor Performance: I'd say 95% of the actors were in grade school, maybe pushing high school. The 2 kids that let us into the starting room just wore black clothes, and then disappeared behind a door to throw on some masks. The kid working the chainsaw could barely lift it, and then couldn't get it started.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: No guide!!! The flow went pretty well. There were a couple of hidden spots for actors to hide that were empty, which looked like the way out...they didn't bother to shut the door, but got mad when you tried to go through them.

Appropriate Ages: 8 and up.

Props / Special FX: I don't remember to much for special effects. Their props were awesome. They put a lot of work into some small details, that gave it an awesome look

Costumes / Make-up: Most actors wore black clothes and masks. There were a couple of clown.

Summary: Overall, this haunted house has a ton of potential. Their themed rooms, and the old building that they are using is great! The young actors ruined the scare factor for us. It's hard to get scared by a kid who can't lift or start a chainsaw. If they would get some dedicated actors in their house to work, they could easily be one of the premiere houses in the state.
