Visibility/Location: Location is really off the beaten path, get directions off the internet, as people are hiding the signs to get there.

Wait Entertainment: No wait. no lines.

Length of Event: 30 minutes

Actor Performance: Actors really play the part well and get you into the scare factor. All of the props were excellent, reallly put you in the haunt/scary mood. Sound effects and props make the whole performance, I did feel a little shorted with actually being scared.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: No waiting.

Appropriate Ages: 10 and up.

Props / Special FX: All of the staff did an excellent job, the play the parts well. There is crazy clowns, psycho doctor, insane patients that get loose, watch out!! I think the kids loved the toilet, definitely a memory made there.

Costumes / Make-up: As stated before, they played the parts to the fullest, can't ask for better.

Summary: We enjoyed ourselves, it was just after all the hoopla, you kind of left going....I want more. Presentation is excellent, just maybe lacking on the execution. No pun intended.

Props / Special FX: 3-D area, dead body bag, the happening, the shining, texas chainsaw massacre, creepy basement, the strangers, dark maze, turning floor, dizzy tube of color durig 3-D show.

Costumes / Make-up: anything you want is there, the devil, witches, army guys, skeleton and crazy clowns.

Summary: I was kind of reserved about going this year because last year was not what they had produced in the past, however they pumped it up this year, nice changes, unexpected props and definitely worth the $6 to get in. Didn't feel like a waste. Great show and would return again!
