| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: High | Atmosphere: Very Good|
Visibility/Location: Easy to find but have been here many times before. Bright sign at the bottom of the hill at the main entrance to town gets you there.
Wait Entertainment: I got there early and was one of the first to go thru so the wait was short for us. Some monsters walked by the lines to entertain us.
Length of Event: Around 45 minutes for the trail and 20 minutes in the spook house.
Actor Performance: Every spook played there parts and did great jobs with there scares.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The flow was steady but it helps to get there early if you can.
Appropriate Ages: Ok for younger kids as long as they don"t minbd getting spooked. Some of this stuff is pretty scary.
Props / Special FX: The first house on the trail was unreal with all the stuff they had in there. Then on down the trail we came to a old looking house that may have came from the adams family. Who even came up with this place should have a round of applauses. It was off the hook with how real everything looked and seemed from the inside and out. Then we wandered on thru more stuff and came across want looked like a real cemetery in the woods which we remembered from last year because of the real brick gate posts but this year they threw in a old church in the middle. We undead was everywhere there with a spooky looking zombie girl waitting around the corner.
Costumes / Make-up: There was alot of great looking costumes and make up monsters. We always enjoy the zombies the best. You can tell that they are not store bought masks there. The make up zombies where even better this year. They know how to put the make up on just right.
Summary: Looking forward to next years event. Hopefully it will keep getting better as the years come. They really stepped the house up this year and was not dissappointed like in the years past. I would think it would be great if the house was loike going thru a real house from room to room but over all it was still a great scare.
