Visibility/Location: Easy to find, lots of signs

Wait Entertainment: A couple of actors in costumes scaring people in line.

Length of Event: The lines were long, but the actual time in the house was pretty short (maybe 5 minutes at the most).

Actor Performance: The actors were startling, not really scary. Last year the acting was better, maybe there a bunch of new people? Last year, the actors seemed to get into it more, this year they just jump out and scream, and that's it. The timing in the beginning rooms is slow. Half the group walks through before the anything actually happens, so the beginning of the group misses it.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The group behind us caught up to us, which made both groups combine into one big one.

Appropriate Ages: 7 and up

Props / Special FX: Lots of strobe lights and black lights

Costumes / Make-up: Most of the actors have masks. They weren't really that scary because the bottom of the mask would hang out of their shirts, which made everything look really fake.

Summary: Overall, it's a fun house to go to. If you're looking for something really scary and gory, this is not the place. This seems more for younger kids and families. The wait is pretty long, and the tour is pretty short. There are more rooms than last year, and they are more elaborate. But, the acting isn't as good as last year.
