Visibility/Location: The location was easy to find.

Wait Entertainment: There was no waiting in line.

Length of Event: Appropriate time... not too long, not to short.

Actor Performance: The acting was good, but I think I think too much. For some, timing the scare just right is enough. I think for myself, I would have been scared if there was a more psychological component. For example: storylines --- one liners that made me think or would be more like the characters the actors were playing or make me think about the characters after I left the event. Perhaps even stalking me... coming out more (for those who could wander away from their set and block my exit) would make me scared. Creating another exit would have made things more interesting as well.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The rest of our party caught up with us... either they were moving quickly or we were moving slowly.

Appropriate Ages: It was appropriate.

Props / Special FX: I really liked the prison room. I thought I was going to knock down something for sure after I walked into one of the cages. It was a really neat effect.

Costumes / Make-up: Good for the most part. It would be good for some of the actors to put makeup around their eyes, for those wearing masks.

Summary: It was fun to walk through! The price was reasonable, particularly for the large $$$ amount that was probably spent in actually creating the sets. ... I wasn't scared when I was walking through but I don't think I'm in the majority. I've just had experiences that make me fear others things.
