Visibility/Location: I am familiar with the Odyssey Fun World so I knew exactly where it was at. There were some strobe lights outside and a truck with a huge sign in it that said Massacre.

Wait Entertainment: To buy the tickets we had waited about 30 minutes. There was only one person doing that job so I encourage you to buy your tickets on line if you can.

Length of Event: 15-20 minutes

Actor Performance: Some were much better than others! but overall I'd say it was average.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The patron flow was not good.. we ran into the group in front of us and at one point there was a line of people literally waiting to make it thru the next room... once I got there I understood why but I think they should perhaps arrange for smaller groups to go thru the haunt to help counter that.

Appropriate Ages: 10+

Props / Special FX: some of the props were amazing! The decor and the rooms were done pretty well. I'm always looking at the individual rooms to see how well it's done and there were a couple of rooms that were done very nicely! The "chair" that you'll see surprised me and was nicely done! Towards the end there was a guy who blended in the walls VERY nicely! He definitely scared a lot of people!

Costumes / Make-up: I thought the masks were pretty average as were the costumes and make up. For me there was nothing that really stood out to separate this haunt from others.

Summary: Overall the haunt was pretty average. some good scares, some not so good scares. They did have one part in the haunt where they separate you from your partner or group and you HAVE to go thru the next room ALL BY YOURSELF! if you have any claustrophobia then you may want to rethink this! But that also adds to the scare factor so in my opinion, kudos for that one! However that is also where people stand in line waiting inside the haunt to keep moving. One thing I have to say is you HAVE to go thru the 3D walk thru in order to get to the haunt. We did not want to go thru the walk thru so we did not pay the 3.00 a ticket to do so but there is no other way to get to the haunt. So - we got that for free. I would hope or think that there would be a way for people to not have to go thru there especially if it's not paid for. But whether you want to or not you will go thru it. Overall this haunt was average.

Visibility/Location: Easy to find with large lighted sign, use GPS and it takes you to the parking lot.

Wait Entertainment: This late we had no real crowd lines, we waited maybe 15 minutes in line. There was one monster walking the line, but nothing too great .

Length of Event: We were maybe 15 minutes in the attraction.

Actor Performance: The actors done a fair job here at best, lots of work needed here. They had some major timing issues and things did not move on cue, maybe one time everything went good.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The flow was not good, we ran into another group right off the start. For the slow late night crowd this should have not happened, but maybe everyone wanted to go home - weak here.

Appropriate Ages: I would say 8 years or older, some light in your face scares but with timing issues - a lot of the fear factor was gone before they yelled.

Props / Special FX: The props were standard issue, some sets were better than others. Standard fog and strobe lighting, fair at best. They have some work to do here, the maze area wasn't too bad though.

Costumes / Make-up: No real make up to speak of, lots of masks here and average at best. The costumes were ok but still need some more work.

Summary: We were expecting much more from this event and it failed to give us the scare factor we needed. This haunted attraction has the possibilities to get better but much work is going to be required. The individual event isn't too bad but the tight spaces could make some people nervous, but we enjoyed this. Several of the events weren't too bad, but the characters poor acting job totally threw off the scare. The building itself has the possibilities to up the scares and give much more bang for the buck. I think the gate fee of $20.00 is way too much here, maybe $10.00 if things get better. Much work needed here before we will return.
