Visibility/Location: On the square in Petersburg... pretty easy to find.

Wait Entertainment: Not that great... I usually come here every year with a group of friends (we go to all the haunted houses in the area). This year they didnt have anything here other than a coffin ride tha you pay $3 for (apparently you have to pay for your own wait enertainment!) I didnt see anyone really doing it.

Length of Event: 10-15 minutes

Actor Performance: Average. This haunted house does not change from year to year. The tour guides were very scripted.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Average. We didnt run into any other groups of anything like that.

Appropriate Ages: 10+ - I don't really feel this is a "scary" haunted house, but I wouldnt recommend any haunted house for under 10.

Props / Special FX: Good. I see this haunted house advertise "Disney Style Effects". If that is what you are looking for in a haunted house, you will see some of that here, BUT they seem to focus more on the effects than scareing people. Also, this haunted house never changes, so if you go one year, than you have seen everything.

Summary: I've been to this haunted house 3 years in a row. I probably will not return. It just never changes! I don't care for the guided aspect of the house. Overall, this is just not a scary haunted house! I also don't mind waiting in lines, but give us some entertainment! The last couple of years they had a cool 7ft monster that roamed the crowd. Not this year though.
