Visibility/Location: theres another wacky wailing inflatable arm flailing toob outside and a flashing light or too but i was thrown off since it was actually down on the side of the building

Wait Entertainment: the wait entertainment was one of the best parts, there were a few in your face people but i really tall haunted hill billy guy was great, and the makeup was amazing

Length of Event: 10-15 minutes

Actor Performance: they definitely were on in there timing not much acting as much as yelling in your face, but they got my girlfriend freaked out so they were doing their job right

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: the group behind us caught up to me once but thats because i like to go kinda slow through these and get my moneys worth

Props / Special FX: not as much props but a lot of stuff hangin in your face a lot of dark rooms and flashing lights

Costumes / Make-up: some of the best makeup ive seen. it wasn't much masks but some of the makeup was so good i thought they were real

Summary: overall this was a great haunted house, somebody said earlier that they aren't known for a bunch of good scenes or anything, but they were really good at popping out of nowhere when you least expect it and that made this haunted house worth the drive. i'd check it out if you just wanna get spooked out of your mind

Visibility/Location: It's pretty easy to find, just know to look for a bowling alley, and there's a whacky wailing inflatable arm flailing tube man out front too

Wait Entertainment: There was definitely plenty of this on the night we went. A few parts of the line were too narrow for entertainment, but overall there was plenty of monsters before the haunted house started.

Length of Event: 15-20 minutes

Actor Performance: I thought 90 percent of them stayed in character the whole time. i was in front so once in a while i would see them getting ready, but besides that i swore i was in the scenes that were happening

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: never saw another group except in the maze of course, this one was cool because it was pure white instead of black like most mazes are

Appropriate Ages: not young kids

Props / Special FX: cool stuff, no chainsaws but a guy with a tooth drill. yikes

Costumes / Make-up: good makeup definitely, one thing that my buddy noticed was that almost all of them had creepy contacts in which adds a tremendous amount to the character.

Summary: This was the first haunted house I have been to this season and I'm glad i started here. I normally go to X-treme haunt which is awesome, and this one is definitely in the same caliber if not better. You'll just have to check it out for yourself.
