Visibility/Location: The home was very easy to find.

Wait Entertainment: The front yard setup is very good. A large selection of decorations and very crerative.

Length of Event: The wait to get into the backyard attraction was not bad at all. They let your group go in alone which is nice, even if it's only 2 people. It give you the opportunity to really get a chance to look at everything.

Actor Performance: There was someone walking around the front of the house and through the line to the backyard to keep the time moving. Inside the yard attraction the actors did a great job in their roles. The whole thing was fantastic.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Waiting in line went quickly with the actors walking around. Your group is allowed to go in alone so there is no pushing and shoving.

Appropriate Ages: It is pretty creepy so I would use your best judgement when letting your children in. I probably wouldn't suggest anyone under the age of 10.

Props / Special FX: It is amazing what this family has created in their backyard. The entire thing is so creative nd realistic.

Costumes / Make-up: All of the actors were done up very creepy. No short cuts at all were taken.

Summary: We were amazed at the time and effort put into this attraction. It is so creative it is almost unbelievable that it was in someones backyard. I would recommend that you take the time to visit and don't forget donations. I am grateful people provide such entertainment at no cost to people. It is definitly worth the trip to visit this house.

Wait Entertainment: There really wasn't much of a wait.

Length of Event: I spent a good 1/2 hour there.

Summary: This is a yard haunt and a walk thru. The owners put a great deal of work into making this haunt a huge success. I was very impressed with the ALL their hard work and dedication that went into it! Awesome Job! Thanks!

Visibility/Location: directions online were right on. Found the place easily

Wait Entertainment: yard decorations kept us entertained while waiting to get into the back yard. There was also a couple dressed people and music while we waited in line. Alot of work went into this haunt

Length of Event: about 8 minutes once we got into the back yard. We took out time in the rooms. Got stuck in the mom/baby room looking for a way out. It was creepy.

Actor Performance: Excellent. everything was so life like. The little girl in the rocking chair, the lady and her baby and the butcher were awesome. So real. this haunt did not portray movie monsters so it made it all that much better. 1st room the guy yelling in my face to hurry up started my blood going. walking into the jungle room and not knowing what to expect after getting yelled at..the whole thing was just cool.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: They only let your group in alone. Our group had 3 people. it was great not to be crowded and be able to experience the haunt

Appropriate Ages: Our group had a 6 yr old. while she was a little freaked out I think I screamed more than she did

Costumes / Make-up: So real. Momma and her baby in a room where there is no visible door, thinking you were going to be stuck in there made my blood pressure rise.The butcher dude was freaky! All spot on makeup/costumes. No one was overdone and almost none of the characters were wearing masks.

Summary: This by far was an amazing home haunt. The wait to get in was well worth it. The yard scene and actors pacing kept you busy. Once we got in we Never knew what was around the corner. My favorite part was the little tiny room where I had to get on my knees and crawl through at the end. Not typical people jumping in your face haunt. would go back tonight if they were open!
