| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: Very High | Atmosphere: Very Good|
Visibility/Location: I've been coming to this haunted house for years so for me it's really not hard to miss. I mean it's right passed manito you come up to some tracks, not hard to miss at all.
Wait Entertainment: The clown is definitely entertaining and does his job scaring the clown-a-phobes. The lady on the hayrack giving a little history is also very entertaining.
Length of Event: It took us about 2 hours to do all 3 attractions, but we were not bored any minute of it.
Actor Performance: The actors were ridiculously great. I especially enjoyed the murderer in the hostel scene with his growl-like thing he does. I thought he was phenominal, and he never left character and really scared the crap out of me.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: I've never run into anyone else in an attraction before, they know how space out the groups very well.
Appropriate Ages: 13 and up.
Costumes / Make-up: Everyone had a mask or makeup on and even the people with just makeup were terrifying. All the hostel murderer had was makeup and a surgical mask thing and he was the most terrifying person there!
Summary: Overall this is the best house I've been to yet this year. This is truly grade A work the people here do and what makes it that much better is that everyone that works here is volunteer so it's really great to see people wanting to scare this badly. I have to say my favorite scene was the Hostel scene (the first one in the basement). They came out of nowhere to scare you which was great, and as I said the murderer at the end of it was spectacular. He needs an acting award or something. Phenomenal.
