| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: High | Atmosphere: Very Good|
Visibility/Location: The Haunted House is right off of the Interstate (I74)
Wait Entertainment: They did not have a lot of outside entertainment but about one every 15 minutes a creature would come out and make an appearance plus there were creatures learking in the nearby park.
Length of Event: about 5 minutes
Actor Performance: Very good and they went to the extreme to make sure the timing of the scare was perfect.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The inside flow was very good, our group never caught up with the group in front of us.
Appropriate Ages: I would huess 8-20
Props / Special FX: Most of the props are handmade but they are very creative and used a lot of special features. A few hydraulic animations which helped make the scare even better.
Costumes / Make-up: I would say a 10 on make up and a 6 on costumes.
Summary: The house is only one dollar to go through and with the admission you get a free hay rack ride (buy your tickets at the park not at the Haunted House) and you get a hot dog to roast plus marshmellow and soda. They also had other food you cold buy like Walking Tacos, Chili and more.
