Visibility/Location: It was very easy to find. The was a giant line of people standing outside and actors running around with them that helped up spot it. They also had two huge blow-up "ghosts" in front of the building. Their website also had very helpful directions to get us there.

Wait Entertainment: The wait was not that bad. 2.5 hours didn't see like anything with pretty close to 10 actors running around scaring people. It really was a blast watching people run and interact with them.

Length of Event: It took us around 10 minutes to go through, but there were a lot of twists and turns.

Actor Performance: The actors were great and right on cue. It was spooky how in your face they were, but when you entered a room they didn't even attempt to keep you there and scare you. They really didn't even have lines to help the atmophere of the room, they just jumped out which was a bit disapointing.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: We never ran into another group but before we entered they paired us up with two other groups to go through. It was way to many people and lowered how scary it really could have been.

Appropriate Ages: 13+

Props / Special FX: The props/effects they used were great. They had a spectacular spinning vortex that left us very disoriented along with the mirror maze that was great. They also seemed to use some temperature changes in some rooms and even some things for your sense of smell. If they intensified this it would be even better! It was cool.

Costumes / Make-up: Their make-up really stood out to me. They succesfully made it look very realistic.

Summary: This was a good haunt but if they had a storyline and people holding you in a room andscaring you it would have been much better. I didn't see any clowns which was disapointing. Many people are terrified of them and I'm surprised they wouldn't utilize that. They twisty turny nature of the hole thing was interesting and left me very confused though which I loved. Good job.
