Visibility/Location: hard to find even with the signs

Wait Entertainment: They dont provide any traditional line actors

Length of Event: 15 min for house 25 min for hayride

Actor Performance: some were ok but i saw the same actors in multiple areas so they are trying to run way understaffed and a couple actors the mine guy and the thing in the cage were simply just yelling get out of my room a couple of performers in the first half apoligized for the poor performances and told us that the conditions were getting to them because they werent being given rest breaks

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: weak they were forcing groups in way too fast and their maze isnt a true maze so they couldnt slow up our group any

Appropriate Ages: all

Props / Special FX: They had a number of good props but i was dissapointed that they had a good clown but didnt give him a real room they had what looked like a small clown room but had a air horn that was so loud and so long that it hurt my daughters ears so we didnt stay long enough to look also the music is overkill there is music in too many rooms and there are horns and buzzers that are too loud they will hurt your hearing

Costumes / Make-up: some were good like the clown and the voodoo guy and the torturer was appropriate but the first miner had a big stupid mask on and didnt look right and the doll girl you would think would be a crazy chic when you first see the room but when you see her they have her in a stupid rag doll outfit and the blood level was also way too much i mean if you dont have a reason too be bloody then dont!

Summary: This haunt is an unfortunate dissapointment! The other reviews i read lead me to belive that this was one of the better haunts but unfortunatly its not. The hayride monsters would scare us once and then move to another spot and scare us again and tried too make us belive they were different. As far as the house goes if your going to have 20 rooms then have 20 different actors if your going to have 17 rooms then have 17 actors etc. have a different monster for each room or dont have the room!! and dont tell people you have a maze when you really dont! Hello a dark hallway with a couple of turns isnt a maze and expecially since there is a room in the middle of it ruining the maze atmosphere. and also if you want your people to perform better then take care of them properly the standard is a break every two hours no matter what! Bottom line is we drove from decatur to see this and will not drive here again
