Visibility/Location: This event wasn't too hard to find because we attended last year. If you follow the signs to Camp Mccormick or mapquest it you shouldn't have any problems.

Wait Entertainment: There wasn't any wait entertainment but there were alot of screams coming from the dark woods which were way creepy enough. There was a point when some people in our group were debating on going in or not.

Length of Event: about 20-25 minutes

Actor Performance: The actor performance was excellent! Our group could really tell they put alot of effort and thought into the scenes this year - they had alot more people on the trail than years past which was excellent - you guys ROCKED!!!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: They were quite busy for a Sunday night but the groups were well spaced and we never ran into any other groups through the trail. The atmosphere is unbelievable out there - it is so dark you can't see in front of you except with the help of the flashlight they give you when you enter.

Appropriate Ages: I agree with their recommendation - 13 and up

Props / Special FX: As with past years the detail is top notch!!! The old creepy house, the schoolhouse and the horror movie scene was KICKASS. They had a nice balance with some scenes very detailed and some less with just enought darkness. The use of lighting along the trail really set the entire mood of the event.

Costumes / Make-up: All the actors were fully dressed and very realistic makeup and costumes.

Summary: Overal this event gets two thumbs up! Ever since we have been attending this event back at the Y we have never been let down! It is definitely worth the $10 even though I would have paid more. I can't wait to see what they come up with for next year.
