| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: Medium | Atmosphere: Very Good|
Visibility/Location: The location was very easy to find, the signs told you right where to go, and it was on a main road. There was plenty of parking and you didn't have to walk far.
Wait Entertainment: They had great entertainment: the night I went they had a man doing fire tricks that were very interesting to watch and he held the crowds attention! He was very good at what he did and he performed it to music. They also usually have a live band playing for entertainment for customers waiting in line, unfortunately the night I went they had somewhere else they had to be.
Length of Event: The line wait was not that bad, maybe an hour, but I did arrive at 9 and they opened at 7. So if you're looking to get right in I'd go early. The walk through the haunted house took about 20 minutes.
Actor Performance: When you first walk in the girl you see has a very creepy affect as you walk through the swamp. My friends and I found ourselves jumping and screaming many times. All of the actors were on cue and were very effective. My favorite was a guy who crawled on the ceiling right above us; that was very unique and something I have never seen in a haunted house before. There was a guy in a hallway who had a knife and looked like he'd cut himself - it looked very realistic, the blood look very real! The actor sitting with the dummy - you almost didn't know if they were real because they moved in sync and it was creepy! The lady who looked like a doll sitting in a chair had a childish voice that gave you the chills!
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: They groups were well spaced out! I have been in houses where you always catch up with the group ahead and it ruins it and then you have to wait which takes away the effects. We never ran into anyone else or even heard other groups - so it never gave away what was coming next!
Appropriate Ages: Ten and younger may be too scared. Family-friendly.
Props / Special FX: They had an area in the first room that felt like you were sinking in the floor; it was creepy and felt weird. There was a room decorated from saw that had great props with lots of details: the blood, costumes, and fixtures were perfect for it.
Costumes / Make-up: The makeup and costumes were very realistic, and they were well done up. Some times you didn't know if the people were real or dummies!
Summary: I really enjoyed this haunted house, they had new things I have never seen before and really enjoyed. This haunted house has really expanded since last year and I was very impressed. They had a great show while we waited in line- which i have never seen other haunted houses so. I do think it'd be fun if some slight crawling or slides were added. Maybe even moving walls or 3-D type effects. I would recommend this haunted house to anyone who likes going! Great location, close parking, snacks and drinks for purchase while your waiting, entertainment, and a good scare!
