| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: Very High | Atmosphere: Very Good|
Visibility/Location: Easy to find
Wait Entertainment: We was attending a VIP party so there was no line to wait in, but there was a couple of characators roaming the parking lot, two creatures with chainsaws, and a reaper, wasnt too scary for me but they was creepy to many others.
Length of Event: around 15 to 20 minutes, but they had closed off some sort of a tunnel due to this being a costume party.
Actor Performance: Well I will say that I am not the guy to be scared, but I went in with 4 women who about tore my arms and clothes off in addition to blowing out my eardrums with screams, I think they did rather well.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: No problems went very smooth
Appropriate Ages: 12+
Props / Special FX: Even though the props were not the purchased ready to go type, I like what they had, there is some originality there along with some things that took some serious thinking, I was checking out the vortex and what simple but complicated design there.
Costumes / Make-up: costumes were good, lots of good masks with some in makeup.
Summary: I must say this wasnt the best haunt I have ever seen, but it is by far the best Decatur has seen for quite some time, There are alot of personalized features there, and I think the crew acted in a professional manner. I am looking forward to next year to see what these guys come up with.
