Visibility/Location: GOOD

Wait Entertainment: OVER A HOUR

Length of Event: LESS THEN 30 MINUETS

Actor Performance: MOST OF THE ACTORS DID A GREAT JOB WITH DETAILED MAKEUP AND REALLY ENJOYING THEM SELFS AND GETTING IN THE PART.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: VERY PUSHY SO IT WAS HARD TO SEE EVERYTHING BEFORE YOU WERE CHASED OUT OR PUSHED OUT BY PEOPLE BEHIND YOU.

Appropriate Ages: 13 AND OVER

Props / Special FX: LOTS OF STROBES AND DARK HALLS. NOT ENOUGH TO LOOK AT AS YOU GO THROUGH, BUT WHEN YOU COME UP TO A SCEAN ITS WELL DONE WITH THE PEOPLE TRYING HARD TO PLAY THE PART

Costumes / Make-up: SOME WHER REALLY SIMPLE BUT WORKED AND OTHERS WHERE YOUR AVERAGE WALMART STUFF

Summary: SCREAMA TORIUM 
 
I have to say that I am disappointed in this one attraction! There is 3 attractions in one spot, which is cool so you don't have to drive around town looking for more things to do. There seemed to be plenty of parking even on Halloween night. 
We only visited the SCREAMA TORIUM because by the time we got through the line and the attraction it was to late to enter the other 2.  
The cost was a bit over the top at $10.00 for what you get. We waited in line for over a hour only to get stuck in a huge group of like 14 people. That seemed to be the average number let through. There was NO entertainment in the line. The person that was giving instruction was like a drone with a tape recorder. He had NO personality and would not even answer a simple question about if the haunt was a for profit or non-profit! after giving the speech we all heard at least 20 time while standing in line. Scenes in side were well played out with for the most part great makeup and people that were in to what they were doing! The small rooms could only hold about 4-6 people if you really wanted to see it before getting pushed on; not 14 people shoving to see and scream. 
I would recomend being the last person in your group if you can so you can hang back a bit if you choose to see everything. After getting in the attraction we found that there was only a few scenes. With a lot of dark hallways or ways with strobes flashing. The whole thing once inside was less then a half hour. 
Then because one person in our group was not frightened but laughed at a girl in a scene towards the end of the haunt the girl totally stepped out of character and started screaming " DO YOU JUST WANT TO LEAVE? HERE'S A EXIT RIGHT HERE FRIEND! " The person she was screaming at did not do anything wrong except maybe not being scared when the girl who was supposed to be chained to a wall broke lose and chased us. She was a Childish actor! 
Not a attraction that's worth the cost, no entertainment in line, and really disappointingly short after your inside! Not Recommended for the price. 
I feel that a price of $6-$7 would have more Appropriate for how long the haunt was.
