Visibility/Location: very easy to find. i have never been to mazon before, and we didn't have directions, but there were signs. it's impossible to miss.

Wait Entertainment: great!! while we were in line, this one surgeon guy attacked my friends.

Length of Event: um, i kind of lost track of time. i think it might have been 15 minutes, but i'm not sure.

Actor Performance: excellent! everyone stayed in character except for one who laughed. but that was because i said something stupid, haha. everyone was scary, but i think the people in the insane asylum could have done a little better.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: excellent, we never ran into another group.

Appropriate Ages: definitely not under ten years old.

Props / Special FX: perfect! as soon as we were inside, it was like walking into a nightmare. everything was realistic.

Costumes / Make-up: this was my favorite part. everyone's makeup looked professional, and the costumes were perfect for the rooms. the masks were super grotesque and realistic - were they even masks?!?

Summary: this is definitely one of the best haunted houses i have ever been to. i HIGHLY recommend it. my favorite room was the dentist. i had my eyes shut as i walked in, so he picked on me, and it worked, i was terrified! also, they had this really cool room, it's like walking into a beating heart. just amazing. the price was great, $7 is very cheap for the level of entertainment. i would absolutely go back next year! [[although, i think their no-swearing policy was a bit strict. they threatened to throw us out. we weren't swearing at the actors. it's just, when you're THAT scared, you can't control what comes out of your mouth. lighten up, guys!]]

Visibility/Location: the main road was closed down at the time, but other than that, it was pretty easy to find. the building had a big sign that was impossible to miss, but we were a little confused about parking and the entrance.

Wait Entertainment: there was a TV in the creepy waiting area showing video clips of scary movie characters. i didn't get bored waiting, even though my friends and i showed up about 20 minutes before it opened.

Length of Event: i can't remember. it was probably 20 to 25 minutes, because we got lost in the dark maze.

Actor Performance: most of the actors were pretty good. a few could have maybe stepped up their performance. the creepy elevator operator was very good!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: excellent. there were only three of us, so we joined another group. we never ran into anyone else.

Appropriate Ages: i would say no younger than 8.

Props / Special FX: very good. i liked the elevator. lots of strobe lights were used to disorient us, and the clown room was especially well done. [i think...i had my eyes closed, haha]

Costumes / Make-up: pretty good. the costumes and makeup were simple, but very well done. i was a little disappointed to see the same makeup technique used on several of the actors.

Summary: I thought the haunted house had an overall very good effect. we didn't get bored. however, i was a little let down when most of the actors were either victims or had passive parts, and not many active scares. the ticket price was cheap, $10, and i thought the haunted house was worth it. it's good entertainment, and right by six flags. we went here right after six flags, and i have to say that this haunted house was much more exciting.

Visibility/Location: The sign is a little smallish from far away, but comes into view in time to pull into the parking lot. very easy to find, it's west of ridge road on route 6, i'm sure most people know where that is.

Wait Entertainment: very creepy. there is music, and people with chainsaws, and cabanas to wait under because it was raining. but i went kind of late so there wasn't a line.

Length of Event: about 20 minutes

Actor Performance: very good, the actors were very into their parts! i knew some of them but they never stepped out of character, and even shouted my name around the house!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: very good. we never met up with another group.

Appropriate Ages: 10 and up

Props / Special FX: the jungle was so cool! there was even a thunderstorm!! 
there were lots of strobe lights and a laser, you could tell a lot of effort was put into the effects, and the result was absolute!

Costumes / Make-up: very good. the makeup and costumes really fit the characters, and were pretty creepy and very effective.

Summary: this is definitely worth the cheap price of $14 per person. hot drinks and monsters are sold at the ticket gate! i thought the overall effect was EXTREMELY scary and creepy, and by the end, i was shaking so hard i almost fell over. if you want a thrill, go to ABYSS!
