Visibility/Location: The location was very good. Right off of Rollins. Lights, Signs. all in all, easy to find.

Wait Entertainment: Very good. I came with a very large group and the actors handled it very well. Awesome job, i was laughing so hard when the guy went for my friends.

Length of Event: 15 minutes or a little longer? I didnt keep track.

Actor Performance: Awesome. Everyone stayed in character. Even if you asked them a question they would give you a smart alec response that matches their character. Really good job!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: VEry good. Never ran into anybody other than in the maze at the end but that's understandable. I didnt exactly like how they split my group up and made some of us go with 2 and others go with 4 or what not. .. i think it kinda lost its effect with only us two going through at some points.

Appropriate Ages: 12 and up

Props / Special FX: it was pretty good. the shock chairs where pretty good.

Costumes / Make-up: this department was definitly up on the scale. very detailed makeup and the costumes where great. great job with this!!

Summary: This Haunt was definitly fun to go through with everyone. I'm deffinitly going to come back next year to see some new changes. The actors where great!..(i cant stress that enough.) and the makeup was definitly top of the line. great job you guys! I definitly had a really fun night!

Visibility/Location: I wasn't really looking because I wasn't the one driving, but I'm pretty sure there is a lighted sign and people to direct you and stuff.

Wait Entertainment: there were a couple of monsters in the wait line which were very good.

Length of Event: I dont really remember but i want to say like 10-15 min?

Actor Performance: Amazing job guys. I never noticed or saw an actor get out of character. To top that, they all knew what their character was suppose to be. And there was very little screaming in the costumers ear which is also a plus for me -- if you can scare me without screaming in my ear, then you got your character right on the dot and plus then i dont need advil because of a headache.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: was very good. but they probably should have split us up more so it wasnt such a big group.

Appropriate Ages: 9 and up.

Props / Special FX: The detail in the house was outstanding. A++ in my book. There was never a blank space on the wall, your eyes could wonder anywhere in the sections/rooms and you would never be able to see a space that they just forgot about and just slapped something on.

Costumes / Make-up: Was also very very very good. The masks that they had were very cool. i loved the mask that was a black skull and it was form fitting to the actors head.

Summary: All in all i thought the house was very well built and they definitly paid well attention to all the detail. the scare factor wasnt too high for me though but that's okay because the art in the building was once again, outstanding. I would definitly recomend coming here for a good time.

Visibility/Location: There is a lit up sign once you get on the main road that it is off of and then there are a few other signs on rt. 12 and rollins. There is also a big sign on the building.

Wait Entertainment: There are televisions and a few monsters that roam the line.

Length of Event: 20-30 mins. depending on how long you get stuck in the maze.

Actor Performance: The guy that blew his head was really good. He got really into his character. The cage maze actors are really good too- you never know when they are going to just come out and get you. Overall everyone pretty much knew their character.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Very good, I came later on so there wasn't too many people in line.

Appropriate Ages: at least 12 and up

Props / Special FX: Was definitely the best part. I think they keep out doing themselves year after year. There's a new thing that really gets you every year. sorry can't tell you what. ;) Also, the detail and setting of each room really gets to you and really sets the mood.

Costumes / Make-up: Make-up is really good. the girl that comes out of a closet thing had amazing make-up when i went it freaked me out soooo much.

Summary: Overall the haunted house was very good and definitely worth the 12 dollars and hanging out in the cold weather for a bit. I went to this haunted house for the past 3 years and it's one of the haunts that i look forward to seeing every year. All of their rooms are VERY original and you can tell they just dont slap some blood on the wall and call it a haunted house- they actually put some thought into it, it seems. I just want to stress if they are reading this that the detail and thought was well done. All in all go there if you want a good scare. :)
