Visibility/Location: It was not hard to find since it was on one of the main streets. They also had a flashy sign on the main road pointing towards the haunt.

Wait Entertainment: There was an Ancient Vampire outside greeting. His costume was so realistic it would make you squirm.

Length of Event: approx: 12-15 minutes

Actor Performance: The actors did an outstanding job! They were in your face, but without over doing it. They didnt focus on just one person they focused on everyone in the room.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: It was a slow night since it was the first night. But the groups that were there were timed out perfectly, there was no waiting.

Appropriate Ages: 12+

Props / Special FX: Every room had amazing detail. There were no blank walls or half finished rooms. They had diffrent lighting, and diffrent themes. They also had creepy music in the beginning and hardcore metal towards the end which made it more suspenseful, and kept you on an edge.

Costumes / Make-up: Excellent.

Summary: I was very impressed! Everything had such amazing detail. The location was perfect. On a main street easy to locate. Characters were on key, professional. What i was most impressed with was how much was put into the rooms. There were no blank walls everything flowed perfectly. You were always on an edge...when you walked into a room and saw the theme you would always imagine the obvious but it was never the obvious...music throughout the haunt would make everything so much more suspenseful and kept your mind wondering to what was coming next! Well worth the $9 admission fee! I would definetly recommend this to friends and family!

Visibility/Location: Once we arrived in Gilman there could have been more signs leading the way. After driving through Gilman we did happen on the downtown area. Not too difficult to find.

Wait Entertainment: There was one old vamp that was really good. Looked like a creature out of the Decent.

Length of Event: The event ;ast around 12-14 minutes.

Actor Performance: All actors were in character and stayed in character. Most the time you would happen upon actors talking and did not experience it in this house.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The patron flow was really good. They did a really nice job in this area. I was last in our group and did not see anyone behind me except ghouls.

Appropriate Ages: I would say 12 and up but I did notice some wee littles ones going through. Maybe their experience was a little less frightening.

Props / Special FX: The use of some props that I have never seen before. Really nice electrifying event! Blood and Gore always works good in my book and they used it well.

Costumes / Make-up: Mostly masks in this area. I only saw a couple of characters in make-up but what they did was really good. Kuodos to the spit up man!

Summary: For being their first year this group did an excellent job. Overall the actors had great timing and bought their A game. Would have like to seen more actors scaring people in a couple of areas but I saw the people in front of me screaming which was a plus. Would like to see you instate something like a fast pass. We were traveling and always try to hit a couple of houses but since the wait in line was long only did two that night. Nice job this year- can't wait to see what is in store for next.
