Visibility/Location: Wonderful location!

Wait Entertainment: NO wait-we were one of the first in line. There were characters all over.

Length of Event: Not for sure-seemed like forever with 6 4th grade girls:)

Actor Performance: Very convincing and appropriate for their designated areas.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Smooth

Appropriate Ages: Our group cried and screamed the entire time!

Props / Special FX: They had a spinning wheel with a platform you walked. It really made you feel like you were going to lip upside down.

Costumes / Make-up: Looks like they put alot of time into what they did.

Summary: Imagine 2 adult ladies and 6 girls between the ages of 9 & 10. Most of them it was their first time ever at a haunted house. We have just entered the line and a horn sounds. They scream and run in cicles panicing. Hilarious!!!! Security follows us throught-which was very helpful when panic set in. It was also my daughters birthday. The security guy headphoned ahead letting all characters know her name and that it was her birthday. They definitely played it up well. The look on her face was priceless when they called her name! The meat locker section was pretty convincing. Climbing through the fridge to find a way out of an area-clever. Definitely a must and might have to make this a birthday tradition

Visibility/Location: Very easy to find. Signs posted nicely.

Wait Entertainment: Not too bad. I miss "Steve" while waiting in line. But the werewolf and especially Chucky were entertaining.

Length of Event: No clue honestly. Had such a great time getting lost in the maze within the haunt (several times) and with the characters stalking and scaring the whole time....time wasn"t an issue...only scarey fun!!

Actor Performance: Very good! Props to you all!! LOVED the clowns! Mimicking us, clownish evil giggles...creepy clown guys!!! Bravo!!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Very good. Bumped into another group briefly while lost in the maze but very quickly lost them too.

Appropriate Ages: If your child handles the element of surprise and very dark places, then age is for the parent to decide.

Props / Special FX: Good. Always love the hard talented efforts of the Henry Street gang. Vortex tunnel, The green lasers, the genius simplicity of the clown room ropes...very pleased!

Costumes / Make-up: Very good!

Summary: Wonderful time....make sure you hit this haunt!! Well worth it. The vortex tunnel and the green lasers (I wanted to spend more time in those areas just enjoying it).Love the maze within the haunt. Maybe a few noodles in places for tall guys...my husband wacked his face on plywood in the maze...but was ok.  
Characters all did a very nice believable job. Guy in the kitchen got the biggest jump out of me and the chainsaw guy, body bag room and especially the clowns...the clowns...so many creepy clowns stalking us...paired with my daughter fearing them...equals fabulous!!! Thanks for the scare!!
