Visibility/Location: It's kind of tricky to get to- follow the directions

Wait Entertainment: We did the VIP pass which shot us past the line. For us, a great thing.

Length of Event: 10 min.

Actor Performance: The actors seemed to be very into thier roles; even enjoying themselves. They were lovely. I very much enjoyed the gentleman just before the rotating tunnel- he got me good.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: It was great! We only encountered the few in our group and were actually by ourselves a few times.

Appropriate Ages: not for the under 10 crowd

Props / Special FX: Very nice. Good atmosphere. I missed some of them by being the firat in my group- the went off after I had passed. The spinning lasers and lights were great for those passageways.

Costumes / Make-up: They were pretty good. They could have used some more detail or emphasis. Some female actors' makeup was odd- I just remember white, red & yellow- maybe in the toxic waste area.

Summary: We went here 2 years ago and didn't care for it. This year was great. Lots of good scares (we don't scare easily) and excellent crowd control. It was nice to not do a conga line through the house. The jungle area could use some smells or more smells as could the toxic zone. Scares coming from above are excellent but there should be more. The rotating tunnel rocked! We also enjoy the inverted tunnel- extremely disorienting and tests claustrophobia to the max. I like that the sound levels change so that certain areas are louder; it works well for those who are sound sensitive.
