Visibility/Location: South side of Old McHenry Road between Midlothian and Quenten.

Wait Entertainment: Cameras showing rooms inside the house show people inside in various areas. Nothing given away though! Also a snack bar with good selection and Guitar Hero for the kids.

Length of Event: approx. 30 minutes

Actor Performance: Well done! Much different than last years!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Line moved smoothly and steadily.

Appropriate Ages: I saw some 11 year olds go through but recommended for 12 and up.

Props / Special FX: They did a great job in this area!

Costumes / Make-up: Actors were well made up!

Summary: One of the best haunted houses I've been to so far! I have to say St. Matthew's has done a great job this year and it's not the same thing over and over again each year.
