Props / Special FX: Good. The "ghost" in the upstairs room is very creepy. The spinning room is crazy. The 3-D stuff is cool.

Summary: This is a fun haunted house. The tour guide at the beginning was a lot of fun. The 3-d hallways and tunnel are cool. They have some interesting things that you don't see anywhere else. The chainsaw guy at the end is terrifying!

Visibility/Location: Signs all the way, easy to find.

Wait Entertainment: We waited only about 20 minutes and got right in line. No lag time, line was moving constantly.

Length of Event: 15-20 minutes

Actor Performance: Very good actions and no touching! Jumped at the right time to catch you off guard. Variety of different scare tactics and room ideas. was much better than last year.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Great decor inside, really put you in the mood for Gilson Haunted School.

Appropriate Ages: 9yrs and older to be on the safe side

Props / Special FX: 3-D area, dead body bag, the happening, the shining, texas chainsaw massacre, creepy basement, the strangers, dark maze, turning floor, dizzy tube of color durig 3-D show.

Costumes / Make-up: anything you want is there, the devil, witches, army guys, skeleton and crazy clowns.

Summary: I was kind of reserved about going this year because last year was not what they had produced in the past, however they pumped it up this year, nice changes, unexpected props and definitely worth the $6 to get in. Didn't feel like a waste. Great show and would return again!

Visibility/Location: VERY DARK ATMOSPHERE WHICH SETS THE MOOD GREAT, OLD SCHOOL HOUSE LOCATION, DOESN'T GET ANY BETTER THAN THAT.

Wait Entertainment: LOTS OF GOOD PEOPLE WORKING THE EVENT, KNOW HOW TO SCARE AND WORK THE SETS WELL.

Length of Event: 20 MINUTES, GREAT MAZE WHICH TAKES SOME TIME TO GET THROUGH.

Actor Performance: WELL STAFFED, NOT A LOT OF DEAD SPACE BECAUSE OF LOW ACTORS.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: FLOW IS JUST RIGHT, NOT TOO FAST AND NOT TOO SLOW. THEY KEEP EVERYTHING MOVING WITHOUT RUNNING INTO EARLY ENTRANCE GUESTS.

Appropriate Ages: 8+

Props / Special FX: PROPS ARE GOOD, FX PROPS WEAK. MAYBE TOO MUCH 3D EFFECTS, A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY AND THE SPINNING TUNNEL GETTING WEAKER EVERY YEAR.

Costumes / Make-up: COSTUMES ARE GOOD. MAKE-UP GOOD.. NOT A LOT OF DETAIL BUT IT WORKS HERE BECAUSE OF THE OVERALL DARK SURROUNDINGS.

Summary: LOUD MUSIC SOUND AND OLD SCHOOL HOUSE SETS THE MOOD GREAT.. THE PEOPLE DO AN EXCELLENT JOB EVERY YEAR, THOUGH MORE SPECIAL EFFECTS WOULD BE NICE AND IS NEEDED. ROAD SIGN VERY POOR AND NOT LITE VERY GOOD IF AT ALL, EASY TO MISS. WELL WORTH THE TRIP AND PRICED RIGHT AT $6.00.
