| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: Very High | Atmosphere: Very Good|
Visibility/Location: Very easy to find. Plenty of parking area.
Wait Entertainment: Plenty of popular halloween type songs to dance and sing to. Actors walking around and scaring to get people in the mood. Even had hearse rides.
Length of Event: Typical length. About 15 minutes if you walk straight through. However taking your time and enjoying the scenes and the scenery makes the event last a little longer and much more fun.
Actor Performance: Wonderful! Every actor seemed perfect for their role. Even the actors walking around the waiting line didn't leave character even for a moment.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Very good. Did not run into other groups at all. When your group walks in it's like you're the only ones there besides the monsters, making it more frightfull.
Appropriate Ages: No. Intended for 10+ depending on maturaty level.
Props / Special FX: Very nice. Props were very realistic. Yet didn't go too far with special FX so it didn't take away from the actors abilities.
Costumes / Make-up: Wonderful!! Very little use of masks. Most actors had make up and that was it. Making them look more realistic and frightful.
Summary: All in all, this was probably the first or second haunted house I've ever been to. Excellent use of space and people. My favorite thing about this one was that the actors didn't just jump out and scream at you, they had entire scenes made up for you to watch and be scared of. It made the whole experience more personal and very very entertaining. I would highly recommend this haunted house to be added to your halloween experience.
