Visibility/Location: It was easy to find because there was a hearse parked outside and people waiting outside.

Wait Entertainment: I didn't notice any entertainment besides some people towards the front of the line.

Length of Event: 10 minutes at the most.

Actor Performance: They were good. The only thing was that once they scared you they went back to being normal. They didn't stay in character.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: It was fine because a guide took us through.

Appropriate Ages: 6+

Props / Special FX: The props and special effects were the part that were good. There was a a lot of illusions, but they were mostly the same ones that are there every year. It was illusion after illusion which got a little boring.

Costumes / Make-up: Our guide didn't have makeup on which was disappointing. I didn't see anything that really stood out.

Summary: The house was very disappointing. I have been 2 times before this year and it seems like only a very few things change, so it seems like the same haunted house every year. This could be a great haunted house, but its repetitive.

Visibility/Location: It was okay to find. There were a couple of sings that led us to the haunted house.

Wait Entertainment: there were about 4 people outside entertaining. A couple of them had really cool masks, and they were definitely entertaining. At first I didn't understand their costumes, but they fit the theme great once you get into the house.

Length of Event: about 20 minutes, but surely it depends on how fast you move through.

Actor Performance: They were great. There were some little kids but they were honestly scary. Everyone did great and there was a part where a guy talked to us a little bit in a room with a bed, and he did a great job.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: It was good, we didn't see any other groups.

Appropriate Ages: 8+

Props / Special FX: It was the most technological haunted house I have been to in a long time. It was very cool. There were some cool laser effects in the cue line. There were good props also.

Costumes / Make-up: The costumes were very fitting to the theme and there were some really cool makeup effects. They looked very real, and everything was very professional.

Summary: The haunted house was great. It was the first time we have been there, and we heard about it from a family friend. It was fun to walk through. They paid attention to detail very well, and I wish I could have gone slower through, but I was somewhat scared, so I was ready to get out. I plan to go back in future years because it was very well done and I can only bet it will be great next year.
