| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: Very High | Atmosphere: Very Good|
Visibility/Location: Easy to find - right along Route 6 and it was lit as well.
Wait Entertainment: Pouring down rain and still had half dozen actors, couple in the front and a few in the back. Probally would have closed but as a courtesy to us they stayed open knowing we were coming.
Length of Event: About 15 minutes but of course if you run through it, it will be less time.
Actor Performance: Excellent- tried to get the actor in the front room to speak to me, he never would come out of character. Inside was good as well,all in character to the theme. A few of them inside need to consider a career in acting. You guys were good.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: As I said, I believe they stayed open waiting for us so there was no problem with the flow. We had a large group and they split us into several groups and we didn't run into each other at all so it was excellent spacing.
Appropriate Ages: I would say you probally wouldn't want to bring kids under 10.
Props / Special FX: God, where do I start? The moving crib, the bassinet scene, the window with the guy hanging out, the moving wall - I could keep going - let's just say I was impressed and I'm not impressed easily.
Costumes / Make-up: Also good - there were quite a few thruout that were impressive.I have noticed more make up this year so KUDOS for that. Excellent job for staying in character with costumes, make up and acting.
Summary: My name is Deb Punke and I do The Mazon Dungeon of Terror so I am not an easy person to scare or startle. Actually, it's next to impossible. I was able to go to a couple haunts on this evening and I was so impressed with The Abyss that I had to submit a review which I don't normally do. But I believe in giving credit where credit is due. I must say congrats to you guys - you got me a couple times. Your house is awesome. You guys have done a remarkable job. I had a group of 15 and any of them can tell you - for you to have scared me, you have accomplished an amazing feat. When you run a haunt its hard to get scared. So, my hats off to you guys. A job well done and I will definitely recommend your haunt. Thank you very much - I had a blast.
