| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: Medium | Atmosphere: Average|
Visibility/Location: When we entered the city of Forest City there were no signs to lead us to the haunted house,we ended up driving out of the town before we realized we must have passed it.We had to call the haunted house to ask for directions. We the turned back around and missed it again.It wasn't very visible once we finally found it,we just asumed that was the place because it had a few lights and cars infront of it..
Wait Entertainment: They had a place where you could sit down and eat and get warm.There was also a small museum displaying actual screenplays and props from some famous horror films.There was also a small gift shop selling suvineres. The atomosphere and people were very friendly and helpful.
Length of Event: There were actually 3 attractions you could go throught.A haunted church,A haunted trail and another haunted house Called the house of blood.So the length of the event was fair
Actor Performance: Well you could tell that a lot of the actors were amature(the lady told us they were volunteers.)Some were good and did really good jobs scaring us.But I did notice some of the actors were not in costume and were wearing regular street clothes,thier faces weren't even painted.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: There wern't to many people in the same attraction at one time so you could easily move through the attractions without much trouble.
Props / Special FX: A lot of thier props were also very amature.There were some good ones but there were a few you could tell they didn't really spend to much time on
Costumes / Make-up: There were some great costumes but like i said above there were actors who weren't even dressed up.
Summary: Most haunted house I go to have really cool metal rock music as a background effect.And this usually gets you pumped and ready to go in,as I was saying to a friend before we went in.I didn't really get that from this place,they didn't have music and it was really quiet,and you didn't hear any screaming as you were waiting in line,so I thinking to myself that maybe it wasn't going to be scary.When I left each attraction I wasn't really scared like I wanted to be.There were times when a few things caught me off guard,but that was it.But all in all if you like haunted houses this is a fairly good one.But I wouldn't recommend it for real thrill seekers.But they did good for what they had to work with
