| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: High | Atmosphere: Very Good|
Visibility/Location: Location is a little off the beaten path. Perfect for a haunted house. Picking a run down warehouse that's creepy on the outside is a great scare factor. Being located on the corner of Broadway and 27th visiblity is great!!!
Wait Entertainment: Lucky enough to pick a slow night, wait was not long at all. Great scary monsters walking around, including this creepy clown that kept trying to give us candy. He was messed up!
Length of Event: Approx. 20 - 25 min. Depends on how scared your party is! We were in there for a while... Although there were quite a few places we had the urge to run!
Actor Performance: AWESOME! Everyone from dead beings, to gypsies, Jason, and even little kids! The performance of the actors was impressive and the timing was great. There were even some comical moments.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Large groups were broke up into 5 per group. Great timing between groups, so no one caught up to the other groups. Flow was good.
Appropriate Ages: Any age. They will announce if there are small kids coming, to lessen some of the scare.
Props / Special FX: Lots of black lights, strobe lights, some fog. There is a movie showing in one section of the house, great props, very realistic, great choice in sounds.
Costumes / Make-up: Masks were great, the make up was good. Plenty of what you look for in haunted houses.
Summary: Overall - great scare factor. Love the different effects, the different rooms and characteristics.
If you're looking for a good haunt - this is the place to go!
