Visibility/Location: It was a little bit hard to find. We had someone who has been there before so it wasn't that bad for us.

Wait Entertainment: There were a couple guys. It was just interesting though because one would come out of character to tell us were to stand in line. So that just kind of ruined it for me a little.

Length of Event: It took our group about 20min to get through the haunt.

Actor Performance: They could have been a little more scary. They were actually making me laugh sometimes because of what they were saying. Like they were trying to be funny in what they were saying.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Good. We only ran into the group in front of us once in the maze.

Appropriate Ages: 6+ depending on how they feel about scary things

Props / Special FX: They had some great props. The laboratory scene was very detailed.

Costumes / Make-up: Good, especially the girl talking about the coffins.

Summary: (This is coming from someone who gets scared easily and loves haunted houses) Overall I was a little disappointed. They could have played up the fact that the place is actually haunted. Like I said the actors were not that scary and instead would actually say things to make you laugh. However, they had some pretty great ideas, like the maze or separating us, but the rest was just not executed to my taste.
