Visibility/Location: This haunt was fairly easy to locate. We did not catch it right away but there is a stop light at the entrance to the strip mall and we saw it as we stopped.

Wait Entertainment: Initially, there were only security but as we got farther in the line a couple of ghoulish clowns appeared to torment the teenage girls in line. Kinda funny.

Length of Event: It took us about 20 minutes to get through. They have a lot of space at this haunt.

Actor Performance: The actors were young, for the most part but this is to be expected at these volunteer type attractions. A lot of shrill screaming and banging on walls but, unfortunately, no great scares.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: We wound up catching 2 groups in front of us near the maze. The actors were trying to make it enjoyable for the people walking around in circles but it went on a little too long and backed us up into the hallway with 2 more groups catching up to us as well.

Appropriate Ages: This attraction is definitely good for all ages. Nothing too scary or dark for the kiddos in the group.

Props / Special FX: Overall, a fairly poor use of the massive amount of space they have here. The "dark" passages weren't very dark and there was little use of special lighting (ie strobes) to add to the experience. The props were just okay.

Costumes / Make-up: As I stated, there were mostly young actors at this attraction so I can't say that we saw anything too original.

Summary: This haunt is good for a family with younger kids in tow. Our 13yr old got a good laugh out of the whole thing. The price is cheaper than others so the value is there. We got a good chuckle out of it but not many scares.

Visibility/Location: Good visibility. Easy to find off of Main Street and Roosevelt Road. It is in a old Hobby lobby location

Wait Entertainment: there were a couple clowns blowing bubbles and popping ballons to starled you and a big screen tv playing old occult type flims

Length of Event: about 20 mins

Actor Performance: some did very well others seemed to be inexperienced or didnt do much

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: its alright we didnt run into any groups but the maze went on a little too long and backed us up into the hallway with 2 more groups catching up to us as well

Appropriate Ages: This attraction is definitely good for all ages. Nothing

Props / Special FX: Not much to mention

Costumes / Make-up: there were a few good costumes and a few good make up work but once again not much to mention

Summary: I personally would not recommend to someone that likes more detail haunts This haunt has alot of space and very little deatil i thought the frist room had the best detail and it kind of stop there. alot dark hallways and not many actors this is good haunt for a family with younger kids. The price is a good vaule than others We got a good chuckle out of it but not many scares or actors even trying to scare you like the more detail haunts all in all if you have young children or scare very easy this is the haunt for you...

Visibility/Location: Good visibility. Easy to find off of Main Street and Roosevelt Road. It is in a old Hobby lobby location not very scary outside next to grocerys stores .

Wait Entertainment: One guy in a hooded robe. There was no line to get in the building . inside a security guard bothered some people but nothing to speak about.

Length of Event: 10-15 minutes

Actor Performance: Where there were actors, some did very well others seemed to be inexperienced or didnt do much . Alot of maze and black hallways went by with nothing going on. Group of actors at the end in costumes with masks ran around with chainsaws we wer not scared at this point so just walked out.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: good in the begiining then ran into other groups at the end.

Appropriate Ages: 7 and up if they are not scared of the dark or chainsaws.

Props / Special FX: not much to speak of.

Summary: I personally would not recommend to someone that likes higher quality haunts . would be OK to people that live in the area to maybe take smaller kids too. I understand its all volunteer but it just wasnt even worth  
12.00 to me. They need more actors in inside as we walked and walked without having anyone scare us , with just blackness . It also just seemed like you were just walking around in an empty store. There were a couple of rooms that had good costumes and themes but they were mostly at the begginning. Did not understand the giant clown at the end.
