Visibility/Location: We put the address in our GPS and it took us right there.

Wait Entertainment: The dancers were kind of dumb! They were definitely no professional.

Length of Event: It was GREAT! It was one of the longest trails I've been through! It kept going on and on! I was very pleased! it wasn't one of those trails that as soon as you enter you are pretty much exiting, very good length.

Actor Performance: The actors were very good! The didn't seem to be getting tired of jumping out and doing their parts like most of the places. Even though a few of the people did touch us on purpose, which is a no no!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: It had a very good flow, the actors were back in there places and ready to pop out when we went though.

Costumes / Make-up: The costumes were ok, but I like more make-up life-like creatures, instead of just masks and clothing.

Summary: My group was very impressed at the entire trail! There were creatures lurking everywhere, not only in the places that were obvious. The trail definitely hits the top for me because it kept going on and kept me entertained the entire time. We thought it was cool how in the trail there were also houses to go through along the way! Even though we really enjoyed the trail, the haunted house was disappointing.

Visibility/Location: The place was very easy to find. We used the GPS and it took us right there.

Wait Entertainment: Their costumes were the best, they looked the most life-like.

Length of Event: I thought it was a short 10 min or so.

Actor Performance: The actor performances were great but the fact that they send big groups ruins it all. The actors were getting back in position to scare the back of the group where we were and it gave away the positions of all them. They should let the group size be determined by who came together.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The flow was good.

Summary: We drove 2.5 hrs to see what the hype was about since the Travel Channel had been there. It would have been the best haunted house I have been to but because of the big groups it falls short. I wouldn't come back unless I knew they would allow the group that came together to go through alone.

Visibility/Location: We had been there before so it was easy to get there.

Wait Entertainment: The wait entertainment was okay but they weren't really scary at all.

Length of Event: Very very short 10-15 min or so.

Actor Performance: BEING THAT WE WERE THE LAST PEOPLE TO GO THOUGH THE ACTORS WERE JOKING AROUND AND NOT DOING THERE JOB AT ALL! The joker guy who took us to the entrance was okay, but as soon as we got inside all the actors were goofing around and not even trying. WE DIDN'T GET THE ENTERTAINMENT THAT WE SHOULD HAVE SIMPLY BECAUSE IT WAS THE END OF THE NIGHT WHICH IS DUMB!!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: It was good, but by this time there wasn't anyone in front of us so of course the flow was good.

Props / Special FX: The school house provides a good platform for a haunted house.

Summary: We had been there a few years ago and it was our favorite so we took our friends back and we were very embarrassed that we did because it was TERRIBLE! We paid what everyone else did yet didn't get the same performance.
