Visibility/Location: Visibility poor. They are in a strip mall, with a very small sign with their symbol on it. We almost passed it up.

Wait Entertainment: There was no wait entertainment the day i went. Only had some lady yelling at us, "quiet please. There is a video playing."

Length of Event: varies per person, but took us about 10 min.

Actor Performance: Actors put a lot into their scare. Many relied too much on hitting the wall for their scares.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: They kept patrons far apart so that actors could follow groups around, which was great!!

Appropriate Ages: Mainly above the age of 10. No profanity though.

Props / Special FX: Had a video in the beginning. Use of fog and strobe as well.

Costumes / Make-up: Costumes fit with the overall theme of the video shown. Good atmosphere throughout.

Summary: Not the scariest, but definetaly not the worst. They kept the story throught which i liked. For the money it was well worth it. I would recommend this haunt.
