Visibility/Location: There are a couple of signs on your way in, but printed directions really help.

Wait Entertainment: I went two times. On the Saturday night there were a couple people walking up and down the line scaring people. There is also an outdoor scare near the restrooms. On the Sunday I went, there was no line!

Length of Event: 15 minutes to walk though

Actor Performance: The actors were very good. the only one that ever broke character was the one helping us out of the strobe light maze when we kept running into walls. There are actors in every room, and they are very aggressive and scary. They really engage each group coming through and make it a fun experience.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: We did not run into any other groups walking though the house. I felt like the flow was very well controlled, and it always seemed like we were the focus of the room.

Appropriate Ages: Middle school and up

Props / Special FX: Good use of lighting and smoke. The rooms all had lots of detailing and extra effects. They try to get all of your senses through tight spaces, lights, air, and it really all keeps you on edge!

Costumes / Make-up: Very cool doll room that was unlike anything I had seen before. They used a wide array of actors so you didn't feel like you were seeing the same people around each corner.

Summary: It was a very fun experience. There were actors in each room, and the combination of the actors and the special effects made it a very enjoyable experience. I especially liked the doll room and the air bladder. The actors are very good, the people putting it together had a lot of attention to detail, and there isn't a dull moment!
