Visibility/Location: Directions were easy enough. I didn't have too much of a hard time finding this. They have a few signs pointing towards the parking lot.

Wait Entertainment: I LOVED the music! I'm a metalhead, and all I heard was great music! There was SlipKnot, Mudvayne, SOAD, DevilDriver, and more. The actors in line were pretty good. The guy with the chainsaw always gets people.

Length of Event: about 15 - 20 minutes in the firstpart, 10 - 15 minutes for the second. *NOTE* There wille be a small line inbetween the two, bu tnot bad at all.

Actor Performance: Great! The actors really got into their performances.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: There are a few times you will have to wait a bit while the line moves, but it's never unbearable or even an annoyance.

Appropriate Ages: Any age if you don' mind a bit of swearing, especially from the people in line.

Props / Special FX: They tend to rely on strobe lights a bit too much, but it's good.

Costumes / Make-up: Really Good. The actors looked believable.

Summary: It's a good show altogether, but I personally didn't see what all the hyp was about. In the very first part, they will pull a good trick on you, trust me, you'll know, but after that, the "boo" scares just didn't affet me. 
Here's the bottom line: 
If you're not scared by movies, this won't scare you, but it is a fun time and a great way to spend a dull saturday.
