| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: Low | Atmosphere: Fair|
Visibility/Location: Great location- very easy to find
Wait Entertainment: a few actors in masks came out to scare the crowd
Length of Event: 20
Actor Performance: I didn't really get to see much of the performances b/c we meshed in to 3 other groups even though we started out in a group of 4- I am not trying to be negative here- I jsut was dissapointed b/c we didn't get to see the full potential of the actors- I will also say that they had a lot of kids- I don't think that portrays a fmaily atmosphere- kids are NOT scary!
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Poor- as I said this really needs improvement- we kept getting bunched with other groups
Appropriate Ages: If they get the patron flow worked out I think this could be very scary! So 10+
Props / Special FX: They had a lot of great ideas! A really cool vortex and a few other really cool ones -
Costumes / Make-up: mostly masks- some really good ones
Summary: Overall I was really dissapointed, this keeps getting great reviews - If you work this event please please don't rate it- it is misleading! I don't think I will go back if they have it again- they have some really great stuff- but this close to Halloween I thought they would have the bugs worked out.
