Visibility/Location: It six flags great america.... not too hard to find. Haha. The haunts inside (Mausoleum and Studio 13) where tricky. The Maus is back in Necropolis and Studio 13 is in an alley in Tinsel Town Terror.

Wait Entertainment: The overall park was good.  
For the Mausoleum of Terror, wait was good. A few actors and some nice "starter" scenes. 
Studio 13 sadly had none.

Length of Event: Necropolis-5-10min 
Mausoleum- 10-15min 
Studio 13- 10min

Actor Performance: In Necropolis and The Maus, actors did very good. In the maus it could be better but still pretty good. As for S13, come on guys, its supposed to be movie sets.. PLAY A CHARACTER. Still some good jumps though.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Timming was way off in both houses. ran into goups in front of me both times.

Appropriate Ages: Fright Fest before 5- all, after 5: 12+ 
Necropolis- 13+ Please, do not bring kids in here. There are profaine things that kids shouldn't see. 
Mausoleum- 12+ 
Studio 13- 10+

Props / Special FX: Good props as always. Lots of pneumatics and a fair amount of animatronics. The terminator one is the coolest.... and the giant tree/pumpkin thing in the front.

Costumes / Make-up: Amazing as always.

Summary: FF 2007 is very good this year. Actors could be better and there are a few things i'd like to see changed. Overall it was fun and i did get scared quite a few times even in the day. Good job JPM and SFInc.!!!!

Visibility/Location: Well, like everyone is saying, it can be hard to find if you don't know the area. The best entrance is the Rt. 120 entrance if that helps.

Wait Entertainment: Very, very, well done. There were i think 3 or 4 actors outside. "Dozer" got me the most.

Length of Event: depends on the group. I'd say... 
Haunt-20 min 
burried alive-2-5min(depends on your wait) 
mercy general-5-7 min

Actor Performance: This was also very good. There was high energy everywhere. Actors came out of places i didn't even know they were supposed to be (which is what they should do). I.e. barbed wire corridor. room made to look like you walk left and the actor comes from the left! AWESOME JOB HERE GPT ENT.!!!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: This was pretty good, could be better. I ran into the group in front of us once and the group behind us blended with us. Try to fix that DOD.

Appropriate Ages: what they say is right 12 and up. But it really depends on the person, there was an 8 year old who got less scared than me.

Props / Special FX: Very very good here. TONS of pneumatics and very loud music and sound fx.

Costumes / Make-up: Excellent. All actors fully dressed and very realistic make up. Always do good here.

Summary: All in all, i always like this haunt. I feel that removing exorcist from the front is a good way to stay with your own group instead of a big mass of people. For me, the best scares were "Ressurection of Frank 'n Stein", all picture drops, "Insane asylum", "skin'd alive", clown room, and illusion corridor (watch out for this room!) Cant wait to go back!!!!
