Visibility/Location: Odd location makes for an easy to miss turn. If you pay attention you should be fine.

Wait Entertainment: No entertainers, it was a short line. Pretty good wait atmosphere.

Length of Event: Attraction lasted almost 8 minutes.

Actor Performance: Some solid actors mixed with some average actors. Mostly not bad, some were good.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Not bad! Bumped into group ahead of us twice.

Appropriate Ages: 10 and up is my guess

Props / Special FX: My opinion is that this is a really standard haunted house. Most of what they do here I've seen at other area attractions. This might be impressive for Jaycees event. The problem isn't the props or FX. The problem is: It's just like many other haunted houses but not as fun.

Costumes / Make-up: Below average for a professional haunted house. Some guy had a gun prop and that seemed a bit trashy. Several characters didn't fit the enviroments they were in.

Summary: I am really shocked the reviews are so high!! Another reviewer said if you're not scared here something is wrong. Something must be wrong with me because I don't get it!! I also don't think the elevator is original, I've seen the same one elsewhere. But that's okay. That's how it goes. The major problem with this event is it seems like they bought a "Make Your Own Haunted House Kit" and put it together. I'm not sure what seperated this from a charity haunted house, except the proceeds aren't going to charity!! The 5 score I give this haunted house is actually very generous for me!!
