Visibility/Location: very easy to find, and parking was not a problem at all. well lit parking lot and plenty of parking space.

Wait Entertainment: i wish there was a little more but there was so much stuff going on outside of the line i guess that might count. there was a flame juggler and some magic show going on too. there were also some people who would carry a coffin with people inside down the line. wait was not long, maybe an hour, the line moved pretty quick.

Length of Event: i would say it took maybe 15 minutes to go through it all, which is average time for a haunted house.

Actor Performance: the actors were overall very good. a few child actors ran around and were more goofy than scary, but the rest was pretty in character.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: normally they don't allow groups of more than 4, but they let my group of 9 go in at once which i appreciated. we never ran into another group except once when we had to crawl, but by the time my whole group was out the group ahead of us had already left.

Appropriate Ages: 8+

Props / Special FX: pretty good setups. the last room with the spinning tunnel was just long enough to make you feel sick but not actually get sick. we also really liked the part with the body bags.

Costumes / Make-up: good makeup overall, but the ticket grabbers and people in that area looked a little amateur.

Summary: fun for your money and with 2 other attractions other than the haunted mansion, spider hill seems like a very nice one night stop for haunted house goers everywhere.

Visibility/Location: easy to find with decent parking space

Wait Entertainment: better than some i've been to, lots of actors walking around and freaking people out. the leatherface maniac with the chainsaw was pretty good too..but actually kinda ruined the end of the house. wait time was around 2 hours, a little more.

Length of Event: 12 minutes

Actor Performance: alright, some people were in you face while others were doing their own thing. i actually heard some of the actors talk about wanting to go home tho once we had passed them.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: horrible. kept running into the group in front of us, and the group behind us did the same thing to us. no tour guide, may have been better with one

Appropriate Ages: 5+

Props / Special FX: some rooms were alright, the asylum room was the best

Costumes / Make-up: the costumes fit the theme of each room and the makeup wasnt half bad

Summary: fun for a little town haunted house. the long wait in line was not worth it in my opinion. the patron flow also ruined a lot of the scares and thrills that may have happened otherwise.
