Visibility/Location: A small town with the event located on main street...so very easy

Wait Entertainment: Several stalkers (one with chain saw) entertained the crowd. They were good at what they did.

Length of Event: 10 to 15 minutes

Actor Performance: All characters stayed with their preformance's and did a fine job of surprise.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: wonderful...we never saw anyone ahead or behind.

Appropriate Ages: 7 to adult

Props / Special FX: The openning scene was excellent with a gutteral sounding demon welcomeing you to your doom.

Costumes / Make-up: Not elaborate but not bad. I hate the scream mask and would look for an upgrade.

Summary: Overall I had a good time with the event. Several of the rooms were very detailed and gave the proper effect. I thought some of the ideas were very good and well worth the effort they put into them. We create a haunt ourselves so it is difficult to catch us by surprise, however my friend was caught well off guard and startled. I liked the in your face approach by the actors. I think that works well. My only suggestion would be in the area of the dark tunnels.They were 75% of the event. I would like to see them varied a little. Maybe you could put some fur or different materials on the wall to spook the crowd. Possibly you could put something squishy on the floor to change the feel. Overall you have a neat little haunt and I look forward to coming back.

Visibility/Location: lighted sign on highway 2

Wait Entertainment: none

Length of Event: 20 minutes

Actor Performance: all the same concept but they did what they were supposed to do

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: group behind us did catch up to us, but it was mostly an outdoor walk through empty woods

Appropriate Ages: 6 to 14, adults will be bored

Props / Special FX: very few props, several strobs and old furniture

Costumes / Make-up: outdoor people were all the same, just a dark jacket. indoor people had low budget costumes if any.

Summary: Major disapointment. Long walk through mostly empty woods with a few buildings with scenes in them. Clowns, insane, doctors, the standard stock. Every scene was the same with actors running about screaming. Nothing creative or different. If this is their first year in this location give them a couple years to create a show before you go. This was a very weak attempt fo 10 bucks.

Visibility/Location: Large fairgrounds in a smallish town on a main highway...easy

Wait Entertainment: The jason stalker was Fantastic

Length of Event: 15 minutes inside

Actor Performance: most stayed in character

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: some areas were difficult but not bad..no trouble really

Appropriate Ages: 8 and up

Props / Special FX: some homemade stuff that rivaled any commercial item..check out the Torso

Costumes / Make-up: the pirates were excellent some of the rest were standard

Summary: This event has made a Quantum leap in quality. I thought the new closed in walkways were great. The pirate scene was well done. The highlight is still the vortex and 3-d effect. They have brought up the scare factor and added some really cool scenes.
