Visibility/Location: Very easy to find, right off the square in Petersburg

Wait Entertainment: There is monster that walks through the line that is very creepy, but the best part for me is just talking to the other people that are standing in line with you.

Length of Event: The tour is about 15 mins

Actor Performance: The actors have to be well trained to do there jobs. They do use alot of the same people year to year, but if you go through you will see why. There energy and timing is always spot on.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The guide keeps you from running through the whole thing, which is a good thing because we would have ran into a ghost more that once. The guide where AMAZING.

Appropriate Ages: I would say that anyone over the age of 9 should be ok, but there where a few women in there late 20's in my group that will have nightmares from this haunted house

Props / Special FX: AMAZING!!!! The man who thinks of this stuff needs to be in Hollywood or Disney. The illusions are great. The thing that was the best for me is the attention to detail. The house stimulates not only your sight but also your since of smell too. There are many rooms that you could go through more than once and still not see everything. As said before actor where great too.

Costumes / Make-up: Again the make up artist has to be from Hollywood or Disney. There are no masks all makeup and each actor makeup matches the details of the room.

Summary: This Haunted House has to be the best around. There is not any blood and gore parts, but what they have is the attention to detail and the creepyness factor that many other places don't, and to me I like that more. Wait times can be longer on Friday and Saturdays. If I were you I would go on a Sunday and beat the crowds. It is with no doubt worth the drive time, wait and money to go through. There is something there for everyone to get scared by.
