Visibility/Location: used GPS

Wait Entertainment: Fairly light

Length of Event: 20 min total for both shows

Actor Performance: Fair, a lot of the same thing...Maggot over and over

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: not bad. large groups.

Appropriate Ages: 13 and up

Props / Special FX: average, a couple of cool ideas

Costumes / Make-up: some good...some not so good.

Summary: Over all this haunt had a lot of energy but not a lot of originality. most of what i saw was the same as it has been for past years. the price tag is getting harder and harder to swallow.

Visibility/Location: As always I used GPS

Wait Entertainment: Lots of very "different types" of actors. some very strange!

Length of Event: 15 min

Actor Performance: mostly good ... some great 
never broke

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: never hit another group

Appropriate Ages: 13 & up

Props / Special FX: great detail. I wish i could spend an hour in there with the lights on to see it all

Costumes / Make-up: mostly good; some great!

Summary: Detail, detail, detail. This place is always big on the details. the new sets looked great. even the waiting room was decked out with lit posters of some of the actors and cool columns. I saw some of the great actors I am use to and some good new ones. I'll go again this year and every year they are open.

Visibility/Location: I used my GPS so it was easy to find

Wait Entertainment: A couple of people but they kept breaking character

Length of Event: Around 15 min total

Actor Performance: As with the outside actors; they kept breaking character and were not at all believable. They had very little dialog.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The event was not busy so there were now flow issues

Appropriate Ages: 8 - 14

Props / Special FX: Props were OK but nothing special

Costumes / Make-up: Costumes and makeup were very basic for the most part with a couple beter jobs

Summary: All in all, the event was just OK. Nothing to brag about here. I think it would be fun for younger kids. The price seemed OK based on the # OK attractions prior to going but after attending I donít feel the price is justified.
