Visibility/Location: Cannot miss this attraction. There is a big boom in the air with a very well lit sign that can be seen from the highway.

Wait Entertainment: The wait entertainment was very good from the butler out front to the clown in the straight jacket.

Length of Event: 15 minutes, maybe.

Actor Performance: I was disappointed in a few places. There were three actors on the third floor arguing about something, and it really through me and the group I was in off.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Very good flow, steady pace, well lit.

Appropriate Ages: all

Props / Special FX: I was disappointed, there weren't many props, and the props that I saw were not put together that well. I chalked it up to early season "bugs" and I'm sure they are worked out by now.

Costumes / Make-up: The night we went through, there were a few kids inside the haunt, and only one was dressed up. The clowns needed some make-up work for sure, and a few of the costumes were lacking zest.

Summary: I thought all in all it wasn't too bad, but I did think that it was a little pricey for not getting "scared." I had heard about the maze, and got excited. We blitzed through extremely fast and actually passed two groups that were several minutes ahead of us when we rolled up. Another thing is the lighting, I was disappointed in how well lit the whole haunt was, but these are just my opinions. 
I do want to point out though that there were three of us in our group, and all three of us had "experiences." For that shear reason alone, I will come back.
