Visibility/Location: Easy to find.West edge of Princeton on Rt6

Wait Entertainment: great!! "Jason" and gouls wander the lots. Jason is one scary dude.

Length of Event: There are three seperate attractions in three buildings. There is a limit to the number of people let in at one time. with the hayrack ride and the event, 30 minutes. Great time for the $6.00 admission

Actor Performance: The actors are all volunteer and do this because they like to. For the most part they are great.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The number admitted is monitered so travel at your own speed

Appropriate Ages: 10 and up. There is a "lights on" from 6pm-7pm for the faint of heart

Props / Special FX: Probably the high lights were the spinning vortex tunnel preceded buy a 3D dot room. Draculas castle had a surprise.

Costumes / Make-up: Most were simple but effective. Seemed to be alot of "blood" being used.

Summary: This is the 5th year for haunted house and has gotten bigger and better each year. All volunteers set up and all volunteers do the acting of which 80% are kids. I think this was a great haunt for the cost of admission. Kudos to all the volunteers.

Visibility/Location: Easy to find along an established highway. Well lite

Wait Entertainment: Three stalkers were active the entire time. It was as entertaining watching them as the show.

Length of Event: probably twenty minutes overall. maybe more.

Actor Performance: A mix. Some of the expected screams from corners(not a big fan but everyone does it) to some really creepy stuff. There was a trailer that just freaked me out.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: They time it with a camera setup so we were with our group and none else.

Appropriate Ages: I always think kids under ten shouldn't go to these things. They had a lights on hour before the show for them.

Props / Special FX: The first barn and the hatrack ride were nothing special, but after you went in the second barn it stepped to really good. I guess some of the sets came from Creatures Crypt. The pirate set was fantastic. there is a special effect in Draculas castle that was very cool. Kudos!

Costumes / Make-up: Half and half...some ok, some poor, some great. Check out the old trick or treat hag...what a sweetie.

Summary: This event has taken a cosmic leap to another level. It could use some extra talent but for 6 bucks this is the best haunt value in the state. I hope it makes the top ten this year.
