Visibility/Location: Signs up so we had no trouble finding it.

Wait Entertainment: Playing scary movies in the waiting area.

Length of Event: 10-15 minutes; my group went through fast because we were scared!

Actor Performance: It was good. The doctor scared us to death and the chainsaw guy stood in the hallway just waiting on us to come around. We wanted no part of that and somehow he came moved and came up behind us. In the cemetary we didn't even see the actor until it was too late; he was hiding in a dark area. Super scary! I missed some parts because I closed my eyes.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: We passed one group early on but that's because we were sort of running because we were scared.

Appropriate Ages: 10 and up

Props / Special FX: They had this cooker thing at the beginning that was so cool. It scared us right off the bat. They had clowns, electric chair, an elevator, creepy cemetary, and some caskets which looked like the real thing.

Costumes / Make-up: Everyone looked great.

Summary: We went to 3 other hh on this night. This was the scariest. It was our last stop of the night and I'm glad we went. We are talking about a repeat visit next weekend. And it was well worth the $5 we paid (which was the cheapest place all night). You should go. It is sssssooooo scary.

Visibility/Location: We had a little trouble seeing the sign to turn. The sign is huge, but was only lit up by a couple of tiki torches.

Wait Entertainment: The wait entertainment was the highlight. They had several actors roaming about.

Length of Event: 12 minutes; I timed it.

Actor Performance: As I said, the wait entertainment was good. The actors in the haunt could have picked it up quite a bit. Asking if you "want to be my friend" is not really scary to me.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Inside the attraction was fine although the group in front of us did end up behind us at one point.

Appropriate Ages: 6 and up

Props / Special FX: This was a disappointment. I didn't see a lot of props or special effects other than their laboratory scene which was one of the best I've seen. They had a flashpot which was set off twice while we were in line and it was very loud. It would have been more appropriate to have it outside.

Costumes / Make-up: A couple of the actors were made up quite nicely; chainsaw guy, guy in straightjacket (although his hands weren't tied up in back/side; instead they were in the front?).

Summary: The building in which this haunt is held is super creepy and is obviously how they draw in the customers. It could be a fabulous haunt with the right actors and props. The parking was ample. The price was high for what you got. Overall it was disappointing to see such an awesome building not have the haunt I was expecting.
