| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: Very High | Atmosphere: Very Good|
Visibility/Location: Visibility is very good with well lit parking area, the HH is kinda back off the road but you really cant miss the lites in the parking lot and old hearse with goul standing on top. Location is in a spooky warehouse.
Wait Entertainment: I seen many girls with their face buried in guys chest so they wouldnt have to see the things that slowly walked up from behind, and the tall skinny clown had some kids on the ground trying to keep away from him,and respectfully if patrons were too scared of them they would go on to others... very good work.
Length of Event: 15 to 25 minutes seems like
Actor Performance: Good timing, good scares.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The only time I seen anything of the group ahead of us was when a few of them was on the floor and wouldnt get up to pass a particular scene, it was a good time to watch.
Appropriate Ages: Depending on how a child reacts to being scared, I would say some kids at 6 years old, some kids at 40 years old.
Props / Special FX: There are alot of good scenes with some simular to horror flicks, but with a twist, most are pretty origional, and some are complex.
Costumes / Make-up: most of the costumes I seen were good, but who can just look at the costumes, The characators fit the scenes they were in.
Summary: I am impressed at this Haunted House, I visit as many as I can in the holloween season and I wasnt disapointed with anything here. The electricity flows as you listen to the sounds that await you before entrance, these sounds are well heard outside, to many in line it seemed to be nerve wrecking, the moment you go into the house you will be in for a eye, ear, and mind show.
These folks did a pretty good job by putting together alot of differnt twist and unusual scenes. And it is not your ordinary walk through haunted house. A fun time for many, well worth the money.
