Visibility/Location: Located at state fair grounds, not well marked so you have to find it at the fair grounds.

Wait Entertainment: No wait entertainment at all, expect long delay in the lines because they move very slow - we waited two hours. Concession stand with food and drinks available.

Length of Event: Average time 10 to 15 minutes, most time at the maze at the end of the event.

Actor Performance: Everyone was well timed and on character.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Flow throughout the haunt moved fast, maybe too fast. Only meet other small group within the maze.

Appropriate Ages: 7+ This attraction has no real high impact scares, chainsaw monster was the only real scare here.

Props / Special FX: Lots of static props throughout the attraction, nothing stand-out here. No special effects used and everything simple. No automatic creatures to speak of, one monster set-up in casket.

Costumes / Make-up: Lots of masks here and no make-up.

Summary: After several years off from this haunted house we returned with higher expectations. The overall event was very weak because of the extra long line with no wait entertainment and no reason to have this kind of delay, the event goes through very fast. The haunted attraction did give some enjoyable build-up but failed to give the scare factor we thought. This might have possibilities in the future, the maze was very well done.

Visibility/Location: Located inside the State Fairgrounds was an easy location to find if you're familiar with the area

Wait Entertainment: 1 guy walking around dressed in all black with a black curtain over his head. Walked through the line once and then didn't see him again. Didn't talk creapy, was just ok.

Length of Event: about 15 min

Actor Performance: When we walked into a room, you could see the actors standing in the corner. No real scare factor if you know whats coming.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Very smooth. Didn't run into other groups. They only let groups in every 6 to 7 minutes.

Appropriate Ages: any

Props / Special FX: Couple of special effects as far as pneumatics, but nothing that was a WOW factor.

Costumes / Make-up: Mostly masks, nothing that would stand out.

Summary: Showed up to the event around 7:15pm. There was about 25 people ahead of us. It took us 45 minutes to finally get into the haunt. Seeing the actors standing in corners waiting to scare when you walk into the room kind of takes away from the scare factor. Didn't seem like any of the actors really wanted to be there scaring. All seemed to be kind of bored. Have to say the best part of the haunt was the maze. They really put alot of time into setting that up. The guy at the end who lets you out should have had a mask or make-up on and use something other than a flashlight to scare.
