Visibility/Location: Easy to find, I have been there before.

Wait Entertainment: There were a couple characters that spoke with us. The grave digger was helpful with information that was not given to us otherwise.

Length of Event: an hour and a half

Actor Performance: Not impressed at all in this area. Most did not stay in character. Big complaints about the 3 "actors" in the corn maze. They were using profanity, talking about drinking alcohol and not in character at all. Some actors were just annoying.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: There was noone in front of us in the haunted barn. Very few people there, but it was a Wednesday night.

Appropriate Ages: Any age

Props / Special FX: I did not see any at all. They were really into shooting blanks from pistols and shotguns. A shotgun was let off about a foot or two from my daughters head and really hurt her ears. I found this very dangerous and it was not appriciated at all.

Costumes / Make-up: Mostly masks. And several people were just in hoodies and jeans.

Summary: I work in a haunted house and know how much work is put into a production like this, but I really think this was lacking a lot. We were in there on a Wednesday night and I expected there to be less actors, but I was really disapointed from what I had seen on the other review. The actors in the corn maze we very upseting in the way they were acting. They were young teenagers I believe, and having them use a gun of any type with out adult supervision was very bad judgement on the managements part. The actors on the train were very predictable and always seen before they tried to scare. Overall I don't think this haunt is worth the addmission price and I think they need to reconcider some of their safty issues.
