Visibility/Location: We have visited this haunt many times before, so we know exactly where it is; but for first timers there is a flashing sign on North ave so u'll know where to turn.

Wait Entertainment: We did get there right before close but there was still a couple of people inline. There was a monster outside on stilts that was cool, but not really scaring anyone and another monster with a chainsaw, but he looked like he also called it quits for the night. There were two really good monsters inside with awesome make-up who we're having fun with the patrons and also a cool effect inside scared me.

Length of Event: About 10-15 mins

Actor Performance: All of the actors stayed in character. Some where definately better than others. Unfortunately alot of actors thought that scaring you meant just screaming.... i didn't get that.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Good we never ran into another group.

Appropriate Ages: 13 and up

Props / Special FX: The scenes were awesome. There was one that was like a tropical mayan ruin and it felt like it too.

Costumes / Make-up: The make-up on the characters was very nicely detailed.

Summary: Overall this haunted house has so much potential but fell short. They did a good job of setting up the enivornment for the haunted house from the inside waiting area to the hell-a-vator. I would have to say the first half of the haunted house was really good. They scared me a good couple of times. I loved the butcher shop scene that pig really got me!!!! That actually had alot of good creative well designed scenes throughut. But, after that they just fell short. I could see monsters before they would come out and scare me. They only targeted the front of the group and did not leave much "jump" for us in the back. If the second half of the monsters could really put a little added effort this would definately be one of the best. But, because after half the haunted house I was pretty much just walking through it with no real scares it was just ok for me. But, it was the end of the night so that might have had something to do with it!
