Visibility/Location: Very Easy to find as it had flashing red lights to draw your eye on the side of the road. Plus there really isnt anything else out that way.

Wait Entertainment: We were able to wait in a queue with Guitar hero but also refreshements until they called our numbers.

Length of Event: 35 minutes. Impressively long haunted house.

Actor Performance: Such a good job. They scared us at the right time, reach out at the great times and stayed in character when we begged for the way out.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: We ran into a few people but it was only twice and didnt ruin the experience.

Props / Special FX: Awesome. In one room we actually took a minute to try to figure out how they set up one of the Props. Really clever.

Costumes / Make-up: The spiders were amazing.

Summary: This Haunted House was very cool. We were a group of 3 men in thier 30's and 2 girls in thier 20's and 30's. Even the guys got scared. They all were unexpectly scared by a monster in unexpected ways. The Spider room was amazing! It was huge and creative with the spider webs - the actors had the best costumes in this area. The bedroom scene was so scarey with actors coming out of unexpected places. The best was always trying to find the way out of each room. I HIGHLY recommend this haunted house and it was really worth the money. Smoke bubbles? Who thinks of these things. So fun!
