| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: Low | Atmosphere: Average|
Visibility/Location: Very easy to fin on Eldorado
Wait Entertainment: None
Length of Event: 15 minutes
Actor Performance: I cannot really critque this area due to the fact I was at the tail of our group and didn't get to really see any of the performances. They need to wait until more of the group is in the rooms before jumping out. Well, at least the guy in the front got to see. I can say the gorilla was good. He did a good job with it.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: good
Appropriate Ages: 5+
Props / Special FX: The only thing that sttod out for me was the kitchen scene. It was done very well. Other than that, everything was ok.
Costumes / Make-up: Alot of the glow in the dark hockey masks. Again, I was in the back and most had retreated to their hiding spots before I got to them.
Summary: I have been to better. I have also been to worse. There were WAY too many kids working this event. KIDS ARE NOT SCARY!! I can understand volunteers are hard to find but I would rather see a well decorated room with no actors than a well decorated room with a 3 ft kid annoying me the entire time. I will give them credit though, the kids were the only ones that stayed out for the entire group. Guys, you have the possibility of being a great haunt. Take the time to scare (or attempt to scare) all the people in the group. They paid also. Maybe cut your group sizes down. Please, do us all a favor and quit misleading people by reviewing your own haunt. Most of the legitmate reviews are saying the same thing. Worthy of a good job but a 10? C'mon.
