Visibility/Location: Right off the square.

Wait Entertainment: Hearse show and coffin ride.

Length of Event: 15 minutes

Actor Performance: Right on cue. Every actor apparently knows what he/she is doing.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: We had a tour guide who took us through. We never ran into a group ahead of us.

Appropriate Ages: 9+

Props / Special FX: There are alot of illusions in this one. Don't think I had ever seen a headless ghost walking down a flight of stairs before.

Costumes / Make-up: Not one mask, all make up. Nicely done.

Summary: After hearing about this place for years, finally decided to check it out. The overall atmosphere of this place is creepy. The fact that it use to be a real funeral home was enough to give me chills down my neck. They really put time and effort into the small things as well as the big things. I was not disappointed, and I WILL be back again next year.

Visibility/Location: Located inside the State Fairgrounds was an easy location to find if you're familiar with the area

Wait Entertainment: 1 guy walking around dressed in all black with a black curtain over his head. Walked through the line once and then didn't see him again. Didn't talk creapy, was just ok.

Length of Event: about 15 min

Actor Performance: When we walked into a room, you could see the actors standing in the corner. No real scare factor if you know whats coming.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Very smooth. Didn't run into other groups. They only let groups in every 6 to 7 minutes.

Appropriate Ages: any

Props / Special FX: Couple of special effects as far as pneumatics, but nothing that was a WOW factor.

Costumes / Make-up: Mostly masks, nothing that would stand out.

Summary: Showed up to the event around 7:15pm. There was about 25 people ahead of us. It took us 45 minutes to finally get into the haunt. Seeing the actors standing in corners waiting to scare when you walk into the room kind of takes away from the scare factor. Didn't seem like any of the actors really wanted to be there scaring. All seemed to be kind of bored. Have to say the best part of the haunt was the maze. They really put alot of time into setting that up. The guy at the end who lets you out should have had a mask or make-up on and use something other than a flashlight to scare.

Visibility/Location: Off the square in Auburn. Had signs that helped.

Wait Entertainment: The thing with 2 heads. Nothing really of relating that with the haunted house. Just some extra fill space I guess.

Length of Event: 10 min

Actor Performance: Some didn't seem like they wanted to be there. Almost like a burden we were there and the "had" to scare us.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Not bad. Never ran into a group, but yet, with as long as it took to finally get in, that is understanding.

Appropriate Ages: all

Props / Special FX: I have seen alot of the props at party outlet stores. Nothing really seemed to catch my attention.

Costumes / Make-up: Nothing over the top.

Summary: I had heard alot of good things about this place, and kind of disappointed at what I was lead on to believe. Nothing over the top, no big scare factor.
