| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: Very High | Atmosphere: Good|
Visibility/Location: Located in the old Wal-Mart location and easy to find when you get into Town. Lots of parking and easy to access and exit.
Wait Entertainment: We were late but they are staffed well and I would assume that line entertainment is available during crowded times. The waiting room walls are all decked out with various props and overhead monitor above entry door shows people going through the event, probably to prevent bottle neck situations for the entry door workers, but you can see people.
Length of Event: Maybe 20 minutes or a little longer, the length was much better than the past times at a different location.
Actor Performance: The actors done a great job, everything we noticed and every actor seen was perfect and right on the mark. This is one of the best I have seen all year with everybody being ready and giving 100% - thanks, that's nice to see.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: We moved seamless throughout the event, but we were also late in the night and the second to last group of the night (thank you for keeping late hours) however; by what I noticed here I do believe they would have no issues with crowd control and you probably wouldn't have any groups bottle up. Everything seemed timed perfectly and the actors were right where they needed to be, no problems.
Appropriate Ages: I would not recommend this haunted event for anyone under 10 or maybe 12 and I usually never rate the age that high, that shows the scare factor here - yes they do there. Job. Even some adults might have issues here and should consider this before entering - they have a lot of scare punch here, that is nice to see.
Props / Special FX: The props are all excellent, much better than ever before. They have really upped there game here with a nice balance of haunted props and automaton devices and monsters which gives the perfect feeling without being under rated or over rated between the two, perfect job.
Costumes / Make-up: The costumes and make up were all first rate, they also upped there game here to. Everybody (this is a very well staffed event) was done to perfection and one of the better done make up and mask events I seen this year.
Summary: After several years off from this event, the new and redone drew our attention back, and what a find this year! This event at the new location (much larger) came off perfectly and we were totally shocked at the improvements this year, this is now one of the best haunted events in the state. First thing is that this event is well worked with staff, there are tons of people working this attraction and everyone costumed and ready on their mark, no mess up tonight and I am none! The haunted attraction itself was expertly done and yes they actually got me not once but several times, there is some great jumps here to get you going - very nice. The haunted cabin setting was my favorite but the white out rag room was also well done and you have to use your wits to get through it, it all worked great. I can honestly say that this is one event which any serious haunted house goer should attend, maybe we hit it at the right time but everything was perfect for us. To follow up that after we exited the attraction a group of monsters (maybe 20 or more) chased us down the side of the building, granted we had a group of young girls in front and behind us - but it just completed the perfect night.
We will differently return next year and a big thanks for the late hours.
