Visibility/Location: It wasin a very nice remote locations just out of marion, a very good place for a haunted barn, and it wasn't hard to find.

Wait Entertainment: The wait wasn't long at all, the minute we parked, the entertainment began when we were greeted at the car by a creepy werewolf and a goblin. Then we were immediately able to enter with practically no wait at all.

Length of Event: I honestly don't remember how long it was. The last thing on my mind was what time it was when I left.

Actor Performance: The actors were extrememly realistic and very frightening. The clowns were probably my favorite part. And all of the actors stayed in character even after we were done walking through the haunted barn.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The flow was perfect, if the guides were going to fast, we asked them to slow down and they obliged, and if there was any issue with the patron flow it was probably my fault for being so scared.

Appropriate Ages: high schoolers and up

Props / Special FX: Fantastic. The lights, fog, and sounds were very disorienting and made the whole experience more eerie. I also really liked the loud creepy voice that talked to me and the other members of my group as we made our was through the barn.

Costumes / Make-up: They were very creepy, and very dead looking. They fit very well with the rest of the attraction.

Summary: Overall, the haunted barn was a very good haunted house. Though I haven't been to many others,it is one of the best that I actually have visited. All of the actors were fantastic. The setting was very scary. Me and my friend that went can't wait to go back, actually we plan on making one more visit before it closes until next year!
