Visibility/Location: Was easy to find and parking was close but cost $10 in addition to ticket price.

Wait Entertainment: No wait entertainment visible. My group got the VIP tickets, so we didn't wait in line at all, but we didn't notice any wait entertainment.

Length of Event: Was long enough to have been able to do more than was done, because I kept hoping that around the next corner it would be more interesting. That was the only suspense. You could see too much of what was coming at you, so the scare factor was low.

Actor Performance: Most of the actors were dressed up well and looked freaky enough but their suspense factor wasn't high because they were too visible before they could startle.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Flow was ok. Could walk at own pace through house/tent.

Appropriate Ages: They said only 14 yrs +, but it wouldn't have scared me when I was 13.

Props / Special FX: Some of the props didn't seem to be complete or working. A lot of space in walkways and rooms, maybe too much to be startling and the lighting wasn't very dramatic.

Costumes / Make-up: Actors looked cool, but their freakishness was subtler than other haunted houses I've been too.

Summary: I left feeling that the event left a lot to be desired. I screamed a few times, but I think they certainly couldn've been more creative w/ the overall scare and suspense than was advertised.
