Visibility/Location: It needs a sign closer in to the town or on the other side, letting us know that the small turn-off is a mile away (or so).

Wait Entertainment: None, pretty boring wait with no one to entertain.

Length of Event: 5 minutes

Actor Performance: I only liked the older man from the south. He was the only actor that seemed to interact best with the crowd as they passed.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The wait between groups was about 5 minutes. This was fine with the flow, but it must have been boring for the actors.

Appropriate Ages: 6+

Props / Special FX: Not too much in this aspect. Some rooms were detailed to match a theme, but it was not "over the top" by any means.

Costumes / Make-up: So-so. They had the common stuff you see everywhere.

Summary: This is a fun 5 minute fling if you don't mind the $10 fee. In my opinion, it was really short. Too much effort was made to scare certain people in my group that would not get scared, which aggravated several us. Some actors would not give up. I will come back when they can extend the time through, or lower their prices.
