Visibility/Location: It was very easy to find the location. And the surrounding area made the haunted house. I am from the area and know the story's behind the building so to me Ashmore Estates is a legiond.

Wait Entertainment: There were many things to do while you waited. There was a concession stand, which had many things to snack on. Also a bond fire was going so that you could sit out side and wait on the rest of your group. There was a facility for the restroom which made it very accessible and practicable to enjoy your time. It didn't seem like you were waiting but more like you were in enjoying all the things going on. Also there was a little ghoul scurrying around on the ground and many people in charter to welcome you and give you a taste of what was to come.

Length of Event: WOW. It must have been about 30-45 min.. There were three floors of things to do.

Actor Performance: The actors were great and never brook charter. There was one guy who keep smelling me. I don't get scared to easily, but that guy made sure I got a few screams in!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The flow was good and there were many actors who would help you find your way. There is an awesome maze that we spent forever in and it was never to crowed.

Appropriate Ages: I think that that depends on the parents. But if it was up to me I would say it really is a judgment call from child to child. I would let my 6 year old go thru but I am not a parent and do not feel comfortable with this.

Props / Special FX: Ahh Great there are so many things to see that you could go through three times and never see the same thing twice.

Costumes / Make-up: Indescribably..... It was like something out of a movie.. Deff some talent to transform some of the people!

Summary: It is a fun experience and a great event to go to with a group of people or just as a couple! Something that we talked about for over a week! I look froward to visiting next year to see the new creativity.
