Visibility/Location: Easy to find, right off Route 53... there are blinking lights and a huge road sign. Lots of lighting.

Wait Entertainment: It was pretty empty when we got there... not much other than the two girl running out screaming and telling us not to enter. They weren't part of the crew, they were patrons. My sister and I did get a good scare at the cashier and got us ready for what was to come.

Length of Event: It felt long, because it was just the two of us and there was no line and no reason to rush. I'd say about 20 minutes to get through the two houses.

Actor Performance: Everyone was in character and high energy. Lots of screaming and creepy voices and people following you and staying in character. They did a good job of distracting you so another character could scare you. Awesome job by everyone.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Since it was just the two of us and they were really empty, we were not rushed and we never met up with any other people. I'd say Thursday nights are the way to go!

Appropriate Ages: 10 and up... younger if the kids were raised w/ scary movies.

Props / Special FX: lots of fly outs, air bursts, and good use of props and setting up rooms in the mansion. it really felt like you were in a creepy old house. the asylum was a bit more hodge podge but i think that was the point.

Costumes / Make-up: costumes and make up were great. very realistic and creepy!

Summary: Each room/scene was well propped and well acted, my sister and i were screaming through the whole thing and of course laughing nervously hoping nothing else would pop out... lots of points where you think you are done and you calm down just to be surprised again. the best room was the fogged white padded room in the asylum... it's CREEPY! the actors were very high energy and were in character no matter where you were at... you could hear them getting ready for you before you got there with whispers and taunts. go if you get a chance... the reviews for this place have been far and few and it's a shame. it's a lot of fun and you get two haunts for the price of one.

Visibility/Location: Right off the main road, easily lit so you can find the place.

Wait Entertainment: There was a guy walking around on springy stilts, which could make him bound after you very quickly. Also, there was an inside waiting area that, for some reason, had an area with a chicken coop with live chickens.

Length of Event: 25 minutes

Actor Performance: Really good, the women who were in my group got followed by the actors seevral times, they really liked scaring people.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: No one else was in the house, so it was easy.

Summary: Overall, I really enjoyed this house. There was a great maze aspect that had many twists and turns, with several great pop outs. The rooms themselves had some great fx in them as well. My favorite part had come after a very dark maze, you went inside a room that was blinding white, with several actors popping out at you. Right after, you go back to a pitch black maze which was very disorienting. There was also a great fence maze that had many false exits, with many actors following you and trying to confuse you. I had a lot of fun at this house.
