| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: Medium | Atmosphere: Fair|
Visibility/Location: Location is a large building (warehouse) with a lighted sign marking the event, not hard to find.
Wait Entertainment: No real wait entertainment to speak of, one creature walking the crowd - somewhat interesting but not scary.
Length of Event: Maybe 25 minutes here, a lot of time in the maze area.
Actor Performance: Actors done a fair job, could use some more work with the acting.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Not too good here, we ran into another group right off the start, we had to control the jamming up.. The maze had several groups here, but nothing too bad - we got through it ok.
Appropriate Ages: 7 years and older here, nothing in your face here.
Props / Special FX: The props overall wasn't to bad, they have a good mix of standard and custom props. They could use some automation here!
Costumes / Make-up: The costumes and make up wasn't too bad, they have some with real detail and others fair at best. Also; maybe a few less masks would be nice.
Summary: This haunted house has been much better throughout the years, last year at the Steve & Barrys old location was much better and maybe there best effort yet. This year things just didn't come together that good, the location (building) wasn't too bad but the effort well down. The house could have been organized better, the space available could have been used better. There were areas which had something going on and others that were dead, nothing - hard to understand except maybe the lack of props to cover the space.. This house has a good draw and should be on mark, with the proper people doing this event it should get better. The maze area was well done, it takes a little know how and time to get through it, this was good and maybe the best of the experience. I hope to see this next year with the added rooms and extra effort to get this back to a great event.
