Visibility/Location: Very good, had signs up directing us straight to it.

Wait Entertainment: Inside waiting - this was awesome since it was raining and cold! They were playing SAW on a big screen

Length of Event: 15 min

Actor Performance: Very Very good- They had actors everywhere and they seemed to be on point! I still don't know where some of them came out of!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: good- we didn't run into anyone else.

Appropriate Ages: 10+- depending on how brave you are

Props / Special FX: These were so cool, they had some I had never seen before- I don't want to really go into detail and ruin it for you- but there was a lot of attention to detail!

Costumes / Make-up: Mixture of make up and masks-Very well done!

Summary: This was a great haunt!! I reccomend this one hands down and we went to 3 others last night that didn't come close to this. I can't believe they only charge 5$ to get in b/c it was the cheapest one out of all and it scared our gruop more than any of them. We will go back before Halloween!

Visibility/Location: Great location- very easy to find

Wait Entertainment: a few actors in masks came out to scare the crowd

Length of Event: 20

Actor Performance: I didn't really get to see much of the performances b/c we meshed in to 3 other groups even though we started out in a group of 4- I am not trying to be negative here- I jsut was dissapointed b/c we didn't get to see the full potential of the actors- I will also say that they had a lot of kids- I don't think that portrays a fmaily atmosphere- kids are NOT scary!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Poor- as I said this really needs improvement- we kept getting bunched with other groups

Appropriate Ages: If they get the patron flow worked out I think this could be very scary! So 10+

Props / Special FX: They had a lot of great ideas! A really cool vortex and a few other really cool ones -

Costumes / Make-up: mostly masks- some really good ones

Summary: Overall I was really dissapointed, this keeps getting great reviews - If you work this event please please don't rate it- it is misleading! I don't think I will go back if they have it again- they have some really great stuff- but this close to Halloween I thought they would have the bugs worked out.

Visibility/Location: A little confusing- had 1 sign by the grounds but then nothing, once we got on the dirt road we found it okay but not due to sinage.

Wait Entertainment: A few actors in scary masks- pretty good

Length of Event: 10-15 minutes

Actor Performance: good

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: good, didn't see anyone else

Appropriate Ages: 6+

Props / Special FX: not too many - I honestly can't think of 1 that stood out.

Costumes / Make-up: Really liked some of these! The guy at the entrance was great he didn't talk, just stared!

Summary: Overall this was a decent HH. I went to this one b/c of the big write up in the paper...but was a little disappointed. The potential was there but the delivery was just lacking that scare factor.
