Visibility/Location: It was easy for my group to find since we went there last year, but it might be difficult for others to find since the road is harder to find. They had a sign after you turned onto the road but otherwise you wouldn't really see it. Map quest has good directions. The street you turn on is across the way from Famous Feddies.

Wait Entertainment: They had two clowns walking around on the night we went, not bad but not really scary either. The actors outside were smoking on the other side of the fence but could still be seen and that wasn't scary at all. They did have a cool Port-o-Potty scare that I won't ruin but I thought was very cool, nice job!

Length of Event: Depending on how lost you get in both of the mazes, 20-35 mins

Actor Performance: The actors were pretty good, I didn't see any of them break character and they seemed convincing. The house had a good amount of them as well, every room had at least one.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The flow was pretty good, the only time we ran into anyone was in the mazes. But I personally think that it added to the fun and excitement of the experience, it made it harder to find your way out and it made it fun talking with other people who were just as lost! Also in the pitch black maze you couldn't see ANYTHING so hearing peoples voices and touching them but not seeing them was fun too.

Appropriate Ages: It really depends on the child, but I think a lot of kids would be scared.

Props / Special FX: They had some really awesome props and effects. I big thing that I like going through hunted houses is interactment, and there was tons of it. All that made it more fun and different, you weren't just walking through and looking at things, you had to get involved.

Costumes / Make-up: Both the costumes and make-up were very good, there were a lot of details and it went along with the room they were in.

Summary: I went to this house last year and it was okay but not that great. This year however was completely different, everything was changed and 100 times better. I would definitely go back and recomend it to everyone! Very good job on improving from last year, I will be back!
