Costumes / Make-up: these were not bad more costumes than makeup. justearly on scares then seamed like they didnt care after that

Summary: have traveled to many hh over the years, saw some good reveiws on this but was not even close to these reviews, beleive these were writen by people working this hh.what really made me upset when leaving i hear them telling , it may have been friends to give all the hh in area a bad reviews, people look at these and travel to check hhs out . I will not return to this hh if this is there attitude. the more hhs in a area draw more crowds to that area and benifit all hhs working hard to satisfy us all.

Visibility/Location: Great location on Eldorado. Very easy to find - couldn't miss the hearses out front. Parking lot well lit.

Wait Entertainment: Long lines,but more than adequate entertainment to keep us busy. Several characters working the lines.

Length of Event: Approx. 20 min.

Actor Performance: Overall, pretty good. Being it's first year, there is always room for improvement. Could tell there were veteran monsters among the newer actors, but it was still good.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: OK for such a busy night. We saw a group that was so scared that they refused to move, which sort of backed things up. Actors did their job breaking up the bottlenecks, which was caused by the crowd, not by the failure of the haunted house.

Appropriate Ages: 7+

Props / Special FX: Sound effects = thunder & lightning - were incredible. All rooms had different sounds. Nothing real high tech, just good old fashion scares and great vortex.

Costumes / Make-up: Good mix of masks and make-up.

Summary: This was the better of the two houses in Decatur. This house should make all other haunted houses in the area step up their game and then everybody will benefit. Family oriented atmosphere as I noticed some kids working in the house. Great house that can only get beter.
