Visibility/Location: Since our group was from the surrounding area we had no trouble finding it at all. The area was very lit up and ALOT of people roaming around.

Wait Entertainment: We attended two of the three attractions and they had several actors with chainsaws chasing people through the parking lot.

Length of Event: The haunted barn about 8-10 minutes. The Screamatorium about 20 minutes. We waited for about 1 to 1 1/2 hours to enter the Screamatorium.

Actor Performance: We have been to the barn in the past so we thought we would check it out this year. The overall actor performance was much stronger and then seemed for the most part to be in character. The actors in the Screamatorium were VERY intense and right up in your face!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: We never ran into any other group in either attraction.

Appropriate Ages: I would say the barn for 8 and up and the Screamatorium for 13 and older.

Props / Special FX: The detail in the barn has changed alot since our last time we were there - it seems like they added alot of new scenes and more detail.  
The scenes in the screamatorium were excellent -they had alot of dark areas and black hallways which made you really dizzy when you came from a scene with alot of strobe lights.

Costumes / Make-up: Most of the actors in the barn had masks on and simple costumes. The actors in the Screamatorium had very detailed makeup and good costumes. We missed alot of the detail because they had us running so fast.

Summary: Overall this is a very good event and it's nice because you drive to one location. There is really something for everyone (even though we didn't go on the hayride). It seemed ALOT busier than last year and I hope you guys continue to do this next year!
