Visibility/Location: The building is a litle tricky to find because of the streets in the town but they have signs that helped

Wait Entertainment: There was no traditional line entertainment that i saw 
but there was a movie in the waiting room

Length of Event: About 35 min in the haunted house and twenty on the hayride.

Actor Performance: most were on but a couple were a little off the mark but it was only the second night. The doll girl and the scarecrow and the witchdoctor were all creepy the witchdoctor even spoke in some creepy sounding foreign language

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Flow was good never saw another group and its un-guided

Appropriate Ages: 10+

Props / Special FX: props and scenery were highly detailed its themed like a mine and actually looks like one even has a ultra realistic mine entrance outside.

Costumes / Make-up: some wore black cloaks others were highly detailed like the miners and the doll girl and the witchdoctor looked real.And the make-up is highly detailed they have a special effects make-up artist on staff! Some were in masks but were good masks

Summary: This is a really good buy for the $12.00 i paid for the house and hayride and they also have a food vendor serving frog legs and a ice cream truck on site plus theres also a bonfire they let us sit by to warm-up for a bit all in all it is a great haunt at a great price!

Visibility/Location: It is on the second and third floors above a clothing store and you enter through the back alley but there are signs on the street corners so its easy to find

Wait Entertainment: no traditional entertainment! but there is a creepy dollhouse to look at.

Length of Event: 15 min per side! There are two sides!

Actor Performance: very good they have a good mix of kids and adults

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: pretty good its an unguided tour done in groups of four or five

Appropriate Ages: all ages

Props / Special FX: lots of good homeade props and only a couple of store bought ones

Costumes / Make-up: good make-up and costumes expecially on the girls and the pirate!

Summary: This is a great haunt and it is unique in the fact that there are two totaly different sides to it there is a room where they give you a choice of doors and you see the side of the haunt depending on which door you pick so most people will be glad to go through this twice so they can see it all!

Visibility/Location: Building is easily visable on the ashmore road as its the only abandoned hospital in the area with a haunted event in it.

Wait Entertainment: was great they had a girl in a opera dress a clown a ring master and Kurlz who is a very creepy doll with a baby doll that sneaks up on you and chuckles loudly!

Length of Event: about 35 min

Actor Performance: most were on a few were off there were these siamese girls that were very effective

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: flow is good till you get in the maze but they use a hidden exit door so they can keep you stuck in the maze for as long as they need or want

Appropriate Ages: 8 and up

Props / Special FX: highly detailed homeade props ranging from a spinning tent to a moving hallway

Costumes / Make-up: costumes were good no storebought cloaks the make-up was great on most but a little thin in a couple of clowns

Summary: over all this is a great haunt and the building it is in is actually haunted so you never know what or who you may or may not see. And the creepiness of the building itself adds to the overall creepyness of the event!
