Visibility/Location: very easy to find with parking across the street

Wait Entertainment: had a video playing. Jason and Michael Myers went into the crowd.

Length of Event: 30 - 35 minutes

Actor Performance: the actors were very good, stayed in character.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: we bumped into the group on front of us, but that was mainly because they stopped and were afraid to move on.

Appropriate Ages: 9 & up

Props / Special FX: They had a spinning tunnel, sparking fence, outdoor maze, and the girl in the slaughter room was fantastic.

Costumes / Make-up: were good. could be better

Summary: considering this is a fund raiser and not professional, they did a great job. This is my 3rd year visiting this haunted house. I look forward to next year to see what they come up with.

Visibility/Location: It was easy to find, the street in front of the haunt was blocked off for the people in line.

Wait Entertainment: A few actors were working the line,they kept the line on its toes.

Length of Event: 15-20 minutes

Actor Performance: They were high energy.Girl in last room was great as the victim

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Good,We didn't run into anyone during the scares,we crossed paths going from floor to floor.But this is not distracting as there are no scares near the steps

Appropriate Ages: My 8 year old nephew went and he enjoyed it,this was his first haunted house.There was nothing inappropriate for the younger age group.

Props / Special FX: I have been to this house for the last 6 years,and this year they really gave you a lot to look at,Much improved from years past.

Costumes / Make-up: Most actors were in masks that were appropriate for that theme.

Summary: This is the 6th year that I went to this house.There was a new energy this year,they really improved the house this year.Many of the rooms were new or had different scares in them this year.I loved the spark fence and electric chair combo,and the vortex tunnel is always fun.With the low ticket price you should really check this haunt out this year.Great job St.Pats

Visibility/Location: You really can't miss it once you get close. The school is fairly large and the street in front has barricades for patrons of this event to enter and exit safely from the street. It's only about a mile south of the courthouse downtown.

Wait Entertainment: At the time we went on Oct. 17 there really wasn't any wait so there wasn't much in the way of wait entertainment. There was a guy walking around in front of the school with a chainsaw. There was a concession stand built into the wait line as well.

Length of Event: For the cost this event seemed fairly long. I would estimate it took about 20 minutes from start to finish. The outdoor portion was the least popular of the area's for our group and was more maze then scary.

Actor Performance: There were plenty of actors inside the school. Most actors played their parts well. The flow could have been managed better as we kept running into the group in front of us and caught actors resetting the scene's as we approached.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Patron flow is one of the area's this event could improve upon. They started out managing the flow nicely at the beginning but could have used some more help midway to the end as our group ran into actor's resetting several times.

Appropriate Ages: I would say eight and up but an eleven year old boy in our group did get really freaked out and exited midway through.

Props / Special FX: The props and special effects were pretty much standard fare here. Plenty of strobe lighting and dark mazes. They did have a spinning tunnel you walked through that had the effect of making you dizzy thinking the room was "rolling".

Costumes / Make-up: Plenty of Jason's and average looking costumes. I would say this events strength was the number of actors and not the quality of the costumes.

Summary: This event was a great value. With the coupon's our group of four were entertained nicely for $22. The strong points were the number of actors, scare factor, and the length of the event. With a little improvement in patron flow and the quality of the costumes this event would rank at the top of my list.
