Visibility/Location: great visibility. lit sign, 
large inflatable pumpkin also shows you are at the location.

Wait Entertainment: Wait entertainment---Awesome! 
Really creepy guy in strait jacket, a demon guy and a stange character with many rows of sharp teeth kept the wait in the long line scary & entertaining.

Length of Event: probably 40 minutes.

Actor Performance: Great performances in the statesville part, lots of interesting characters. in the city of the dead they were similar but scary also.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: there were alot of people there but they handled patron flow well. they stepped in between our groups sometimes to slow us down to not run into another and the monster/ actor would engage you while waiting to go the next area and a fresh scare.

Appropriate Ages: 13+

Props / Special FX: Great props, rooms, there is a bathroom/shower room that is really detailed, the bus, the clown room, . The city of the dead was medium in this area.

Costumes / Make-up: Again, great makeup and costumes.The costumes and make up were appropriate for the rooms & prison theme.

Summary: This is a great haunt. I went with 3 adults and a big group of kids. We were all  
happy to have gone to this haunt compared to some of the others we have gone to. 
Their price is the highest I have paid but to me, who goes to many haunts, it was worth it.

Visibility/Location: Visibility was OK. there is a haunted house sign with flashing arrow.

Wait Entertainment: Wait entertainment was pretty good. They had a scary nurse and ghoul in a wheelchair that surprised one of our group .

Length of Event: Half hour for everything.

Actor Performance: Actors, where there were some, had great makeup . The problem was there was hardly any actors after a certain point. I was literally walking for at least 5 minutes without anyone jumping out .

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Too many patrons in a group, 
about 10 at a time .  
It got slowed to a point of a standstill several times.

Appropriate Ages: 10+

Props / Special FX: The props and special FX are very good here. 11th hour itself has great detail in their rooms and props. The Catacombs as well. Liked the graveyard scene, and the scene with the hanging toys.

Costumes / Make-up: Costumes and make up of the actors there was done well, 
A bald, strange character 
made up well, a girl in the morgue insisting she is not dead, also well.

Summary: My main issue with this haunt was the lack of actors. I myself was not scared once, and one person in my group was only scared by surprise outside. I probably will not be back to this one again.
