Visibility/Location: Very good location. I can't think of a more suitable place for such an attraction as the Fair Grounds.

Wait Entertainment: Very reasonable wait, the line was steadily moving. The Crew of the Karnival were great at interacting with the people coming to see the attraction. Very thankfull to those leaving

Length of Event: At first glance the venue doesn't appear like it will be long but once you get inside you're in for the surpises of your life. Twists and turns, a few deadends and split passageways make it excellent

Actor Performance: The Actors were great they were friendly to the people, performed proffessionally and as needed were very helpfull. They did wonderfull jobs of Scaring the populace

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The line moved along very steady, there was no rushing but the staff ensured that it didn't get stale and stall out.

Appropriate Ages: I believe that the signs the staff had posted were appropriate I wouldn't recommend this attraction for all children under 13. Definately not for younger children due to the Special FX

Props / Special FX: Excellent props and SFX you couldn't ask for anythig more.

Costumes / Make-up: the costumes/makeup were excellent they looked professionally done and not just like they were slapped together in seconds.

Summary: Overall I'd give this attraction a 7 or 8 out of 10. I loved the Dots room along with the Inflatable rooms it made the attraction all the more entertaining. Reaching the Karnival Game was awesome is was hilarious and just fit perfectly. I"m glad I came.

Visibility/Location: you can see strobe lights from the road, and there is a sign pointing you into the fairgrounds. pretty easy to find.

Wait Entertainment: I went on opening day. There was not much of a wait.

Length of Event: about 15 minutes to go through.

Actor Performance: overall very good. Not professional actors, but never broke character, and the actors that interact and enthusiastic and creative.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: good. I had a small group, but attraction flows well.

Appropriate Ages: 12 and up

Props / Special FX: the maze room was great. Usually it is just black painted walls in a black room and you bump around. The use of low lighting, strobes, and fencing to make the maze was a great idea. Could never tell if the actors were close or in another row, and the slight visibility made the maze fun to navigate, not a bump into each other mess.

Costumes / Make-up: nothing too special but good. The costumes matched the scenes well. The actor in the trailer park room, fit creepily perfect with the atmosphere of that room

Summary: I have been going to haunted houses for years and have come to appreciate when things are done well. Overall this is a very well done attraction. The added "clautrophobia" element was unexpected and interesting. There was only one room that disapointed me, and that was only because the lighting was very distracting, but the idea was great. a room with lots of doors, but only one way out, but with the strobes I couldnt see the doors, they should just light that room with eery red or green light or something. THe slow strobe and the clown was fantastic. The actor timed the strobe perfect to be in a different spot everytime it came on, very creepy. Worth the time to check this out, not super scary, but very well done.
