Visibility/Location: Not bad, a few signs here and their. 

Wait Entertainment: Wait entertainment consisted of a male and female going up and down the line making fun of each person. I didn't understand at all how that was funny, alot of the comments were unappropriate as well. There was one individual with a chainsaw who did a good job though. 

Length of Event: 10 min. of haunt. 30 min. of waiting within the haunt and walking down many black halls that were not decorated at all. 

Actor Performance: Definately not top of the line, they did not stay in character whats so ever which made it look unprofessional. majority of the employees were between the age of 15 - 20 tops. 99% of characters were wearing masks i did not flinch once in this house and that is usually not like me. 

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Not bad left us in rooms for 5 minutes though with some 16 year old trying to scare people. 

Appropriate Ages: 10+

Props / Special FX: Some rooms were decent. I definatly liked how they used manikins within a few rooms to distract you on which one is real. To many long black halls. They fool you on this one, the house looks nice on the outside as well as the first couple of rooms but after a couple scenes its definately downgrades. 

Costumes / Make-up: There wasn't such thing as make-up everyone wore masks, and the few that didnt looked like it took them 15 seconds to put some black makeup around their eyes. 

Summary: Overall it is not worth what they are charging whatsoever. Definitely do not spend 5 dollars extra for the maze, believe it or not we were the only ones in line when I handed my ticket to the gentlemen (which actually looked like he had half of his costume off already) he ran into the maze ahead of us which come to find out he was the ONLY person who was in the haunted maze trying to scare us. It took me 2 minutes to complete the maze I have never been so disappointed in my life. Save your money I am doing these reviews to help you guys. Check out my other reviews. Ron
