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.

Visibility/Location: Was a little tricky to find, but once we got on the dirt road found it ok.

Wait Entertainment: I have to give credit where credit is due.

Length of Event: 12 to 15 minutes.

Actor Performance: Actors did pretty good for no more of them that here was, I will say that they had to be wore out from all the scene jumping.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: not a problem.

Appropriate Ages: 4+

Props / Special FX: Cool bridge scene, and decent cemetary

Costumes / Make-up: masks

Summary: I dont like to bad mouth others and my mother always said if I cant say anything good to shut my face, these guys should get things going better for the j-cs name sake.
