Visibility/Location: Easy to find. There's a map on their website.

Wait Entertainment: This year they have guitar hero for the customers to play. What a great idea!

Length of Event: Took us about 35 minutes to find our way out. This house is kind of like a puzzle. There is no clear exit from the rooms. You really have to FIND your way out!

Actor Performance: All were good. Seemed like they enjoyed scaring the pants off of us.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Pretty good, we only ran into another group in the last room. We couldn't find the right way out!! It's tougher than you think.

Appropriate Ages: Definitely not for under 10 or 12.

Props / Special FX: Some really cool stuff this year! Don't want to give it away though, see it for yourself!

Costumes / Make-up: There was one really tall guy who was totally bizarre looking. A little too creepy if you ask me. Otherwise they were all as you would expect.

Summary: Once again, this was a great house. Some cool special effects not seen in many other houses. The intensity of the actors really makes it scary. Our favorite part as always is the challenge of finding your way out. Nobody else does it quite like these guys!
