Visibility/Location: It is located on the square in Petersburg. The is a lot of parking around the square. It is very easy to find, on the main road through Petersburg.

Wait Entertainment: There was no entertainment while waiting in line, other than visitors sharing stories about all the haunted attractions.

Length of Event: It lasted about 15 minutes inside the attreaction.

Actor Performance: Excellent as usual, (we've been going for 6 years now, and this was one of my favorite years there.)The costumes and effects are great!!!!!!!!!!!!The actors really get into character.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Very well timed, we have never run into another group at this attraction.

Appropriate Ages: 12 and above, some younger children maybe can handle it, but usually they come out almost hysterical. I've seen a teenager or adult come out every year with wet pants.

Props / Special FX: lots of holograms galore. "moving" elevator, electrifying grated floor to name a few. the effects are fabulous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Costumes / Make-up: All actors and guides are well costumed. Everyone is appropriately attired and the make-up was good.

Summary: This attraction is always very good, they really pay attention to detail and it's a very scary time. Even though I've been there so much they always find new ways to scare you. It is definately worth the entry fee.

Visibility/Location: This attraction is very easy to find. There is plenty of parking at the site.It is very easy to spot from the main road.

Wait Entertainment: The backround music was good. They had someone dressed and walking on stilts with an awesome costume roaming outside to keep you entertained and on your toes.The guides related the backround and info about the 200 year old Haunted house.The exterior was decorated in the western theme to go along with the house theme.

Length of Event: We were in the houser around 20 - 25 minutes or so.

Actor Performance: The actors were very good, they stayed in character. I did not see them roaming unnecessarily. They timed their entrance and exit perfectly.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Groups were spaced out nicely, so you didn't run into anyone else. We didn't encounter any other group while inside the attraction.

Appropriate Ages: I probably wouldn't bring anyone under the age of 12 years old. I took my 12 yr old daughter and a friend and her friend was extremely scared.

Props / Special FX: The animated Satan who give sthe house rules was pretty cool.

Costumes / Make-up: The actors had very good costumes that pertained well with the theme.

Summary: This is the 3rd year in a row that we've been to this haunted house and they just get better every year. It is always scary and changes themes every year. They really pay attention to detail with the interior and exterior decorations, costumes, etc. I would recommend it to anyone who likes haunted houses. You definately get your moneys worth.
