| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: Very High | Atmosphere: Very Good|
Visibility/Location: Forest City is a very small town so I was able to find this place with no problems
Wait Entertainment: There is a Horror Museum and old Horror Flicks playing in the snackbar area. As far as waiting in line there is a very large very bloody man with a real machete who taunts and torments you while you wait, that seemed to make the waiting time disappear.
Length of Event: There are 3 attractions 2 haunted houses and a a huanted trail after it was all said and done we spent about 2 hours with each attraction taking about 20 to 25 minutes to get thru.
Actor Performance: A mix of talent here there were really great actors who put alot of time and effort into their roles a special props to the See No Evil scene I wasnt expecting that!
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: There was no clogging or congestion when we went thru and they were busy at that time.
Appropriate Ages: I would def not bring my young children to this there are some graphic spots and lots of blood.
Props / Special FX: Good use of darkness and strobe lights making navigation of the mazes even more difficult and the natural lighting in the barn was a nice touch. There are times in all the attractions where you may have to crawl or climb to escape, a very nice touch.
Costumes / Make-up: The costume ideas were well thought up actors who were playing victims were bloody and looked like the were just in a car wreck.
Summary: Overall we had a blast everyone was friendly except for the butcher guy he wouldn't leave my date alone. The price is very fair the entertainment is High and everyone is a volunteer from what I understand. The concept of an actual house being the attraction starting at the basement was a nice and new twist to my list of haunts I visit this time of year. Its def worth your time and money to check it out.
