Visibility/Location: If you are not familiar with the area, get clear directions. As you get closer to the event, you will be able to see the Casino, and it is right across the street. Parking is very accessible.

Wait Entertainment: Good entertainment in line. I was watching a movie on the TV that was playing outside and one of the actors scared me, so they definitely did their job.

Length of Event: About 15 minutes to walk through

Actor Performance: Good - plenty of different scenes and actors around every corner, some even followed us down a ways as we walked past, which made it scarier.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Pretty good, they stopped us a couple of times from going forward so that we wouldn't run into the slower people in front of us and they only took in small groups which made it better.

Appropriate Ages: 12+

Props / Special FX: Great - pretty gory and gross. Nice animated stuff and a lot of different scenes than what you would typically see. It was pretty dark in there so when the scenes were lit up, you could see them very well.

Costumes / Make-up: Excellent from what I could see - everyone was decked out in their best attire!

Summary: Definitely a great haunted "house" - it technically is in a basement, you go down some stairs at the beginning, so it is authentic in that. They were really down to business with this one, and pulled out all the stops including music and sounds and props galore. From air being blown on my ankles and head, to things crawling on my feet, it was definitely a great time and a good scare.
