Visibility/Location: Its out in the boonies but easy to find if you pay attention and look for the big building off the road.

Wait Entertainment: Not bad....some really creepy characters hanging out in the waiting room.

Length of Event: I'd say normally 30 minutes or so but power went out and that caused an interruption.

Actor Performance: Some were really good like the Joker, the doll girl, the mad scientist, and a few others.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: It was flowing fairly well until the lights went out. Didn't really run into anyone which is good.

Appropriate Ages: depends on how easily scared....I'd say 8 and up.

Props / Special FX: It looked like there was the potential for some cool props but some things seemed to not be working like the tunnel we went through. There was a really detailed and cool mad scientist lab that was outstanding. Looked like something out of a movie. I'd say the best room in the whole haunt.

Costumes / Make-up: Some characters makeup were done really well,like Joker, doll girl, and the skeleton man. The scientist had these crazy sideburns that were awesome, others were just black faces which isn't really scary. There were a few masks.

Summary: In summary, I think the place could do a lot better in the scariness department. Building is huge, so could be really cool with more detailed props. Really bad that power went out because it was out for a bit and that takes the mood out of it. Don't know what was up with that. Once again, the best thing of all was the lab.....mad props to that room!
