| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: Very High | Atmosphere: Good|
Visibility/Location: It is easily visible but is a little tricky to find even with the signs
Wait Entertainment: There was no line entertainment full time
Length of Event: about 20 min but i was told there is a video they normally show that was temporarily down.
Actor Performance: The miners didnt impress me any, There is a monster in a cage thats a good scare, The crazy girl is good and the girls in the door area were pretty creepy. But the best overall were this clown with a very sadistic laugh and The witchdoctor was so convincing i thought he was real.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Flow is not that smooth the girls in front were sending groups in too quick and we ran into one group in front of us and one behind us that the crazy girl stalled to let us get ahead.
Appropriate Ages: I would say about 14+
Props / Special FX: Pretty cool special effects and props there are laser effects and the lighting was only a little off i.e. black lights where they are not needed etc.
Costumes / Make-up: As far as the make-up goes they have a make-up guy that has worked on movies and tv so nothing more needs said about that and the costumes were mostly store bought with the exception of the scarecrow and the witchdoctor and the miners (they had on real dirty work clothes so it looked good the witchdoctor the scarecrow and the hostel guys costumes were proffesional
Summary: This is overall a really great upcoming haunt as its only in its second or third professional season, The scenery like the mine entrance and theming are proffesionally built and the rooms are all decorated with real props so its not a amatuer set-up and the actors are all good and were generally on the mark and they even have one actor that has been on film before that i recognized and spoke to after i went through there is also food and a haunted hayride that has a few clever scares and a really dark and creepy looking area that it follows with no light available so its super dark and creepy. If you like a haunt that not only looks good but will scare you real bad you need to try this haunt
