Visibility/Location: This haunt was located in the back of Hollywood Park Amusement next to the Go Carts.

Wait Entertainment: Not a very long wait at all, especially good since it was so cold outside.

Length of Event: 8 minutes

Actor Performance: Some were very scary while others were extremely entertaining yet professional. The sound effects that came out of some of them made for a creapy experience. I loved how they walked around the entire area and tried to persuade their next "victims" into the haunt. The group I was with laughed so hard at the kids almost "taughting" the actors to try to scare them. Many of the kids parents went over to take pictures with all the actors. It was great, everyone was having so much fun.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: No problems at all

Appropriate Ages: Young kids stay away as this was definately scary for teenagers and up.

Props / Special FX: The props were extremely realistic. Very scary and the Special FX were top notch. So much detail was put into this haunted house.

Costumes / Make-up: VERY GOOD and Creapy! Costumes and make up were so realistic. I loved their makeup!

Summary: It seamed when one group came out of the haunted house, they would stand and hover just to see how the next groups reaction would be. I knew I was in trouble while I was waiting in line and a group of 5 older teenagers came out of the haunted house screaming, waiving their hands and running at top speed. One was practically crying. The haunted house itself was awesome and led me to want to go in again as I know I missed alot since there was so much to see. The actors were very intense and I am definately hoarse due to all my screaming (and I don't scare very easily). Everyone in our group agrees that we definately got our money's worth. Go here if you want to be scared, it was an AWESOME haunt!

Visibility/Location: very hard to find. located in the back of a family arcade, you would never find this place if you didnt know that it existed. even knowing exactly where the hollywood arcade is, it was hard to find

Wait Entertainment: some actirs in line that were a little scary and quite entertaining. lots of little kids were coming out of the arcade and terrorizing the actors, it was amusing.

Length of Event: 5 minutes

Actor Performance: actors were good. fx makeup was well done on most of the characters.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: smooth flowing throughout

Appropriate Ages: 5 & up

Props / Special FX: very good

Costumes / Make-up: good

Summary: DEAD Central is a small but fun haunted house with lots of scary scenes in what appears to be a very small tent but is rather large inside. I thought that the real hearses displayed outside were a great touch. The actors were scary and did a good job scaring the people waiting to get in. There were lots of kids that came from inside the arcade that were almost bothering the actors to get them to try to chase them around. The only drawback was that it was very hard to find, and is located at the back of Hollywood arcade. I almost could not find it, but glad that I did. There was not a big line to wait in and it was not super scary, but was a good haunt for younger kids.
