Visibility/Location: Locating is well marked coming from the south up Sheridan road, no markings seen from the north. once you turn off of Sheridan road there are police cars guiding the route to the building

Wait Entertainment: Only waitied in line for a few minutes, but there were several people working the line, and like normal for here they are some of the best actor they have. For all of you that have been here before, throwing up guy was there but off to the side and not being used (I missed him

Length of Event: About 45min on the $25 dollar ticket.

Actor Performance: This is where it starts to fall apart, on the night i was there, it seemed to be well under staffed. A lot of the rooms had nobody in them. Several actor s timing was way off they would jump out after everyone passed. A few were running from one scene to the next. I even caught one watching who was coming down the hall standing in the light then had a look like ops I was caught.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Flow wasn’t to bad, keeping in mind that it was a slow night so we got to spend more time then normal looking at the rooms. On the downside there are some transition locations that have you standing outside of the set in the unfinished areas waiting to enter the next area.

Appropriate Ages: 12+

Props / Special FX: Some of the features newer features are great (elevator, floating cage, hospital door are great. Others not so much, there is a hall with foam rubber flooring that would be much better if the hall was dark and you couldn’t see the floor. Some of the rooms and hall are well decorated if you spend the time looking around( example “Misery General” has signs and decoration on the walls of the hall leading out that are near impossible to see do to how dark it is). Having people lay down in the buried alive, brings an all new aspect and creep factor to the event

Summary: As a person that has gone 7 out of the last 8 years, I was definitely disappointed this year. With a $25 price tag having rooms that had no actors working them was uncalled for. Having gone to many haunted houses and even working at one for several years it reminds me of a new venue that has to work out all the bugs. I was talking to one of the workers, and he stated that they are still working on it, a little late since this wasn’t even opening weekend. Once they work out the bugs and go back to their old standards, I think they will be one of the best again. Note: The VIP pass with head of the line(online only) is a great idea on busy nights, having waited 3 hours in previous years.
