| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: Medium | Atmosphere: Average|
Visibility/Location: Somewhat hard to find as there were no signs posted and do lights indicating where the haunt was. It is inside of a school which is conveniently located a block South of 47th and in between Leamington and Laramie.
Wait Entertainment: There was no wait entertainment but then again there was really no line when I got there. I waited only a few minutes before being led inside.
Length of Event: about 5 minutes.
Actor Performance: The actors were decent and some were very over the top. A few even did there best to make our group feel unnerved and proceeded to follow us and cut through secret passageways to cut us off and get in our faces more.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: There was no issue with patron flow and every group goes in with a tour guide which ensures that there is no bumping into any other groups. They also keep the groups small which is nice.
Appropriate Ages: I would say all ages.
Props / Special FX: Not much special effects and the props were okay. This is a small community haunt that just started last year and overall they make out well with what they have at their disposal.
Costumes / Make-up: Nothing too elaborate. The guy in chains was very cool looking and very in your face as well.
Summary: Overall this is a nice little haunt that only costs 3 dollars to get into and is more than worth the money. I think as they grow and get more elaborate this place will pick up a bit. They are only open two nights out of the year and are staffed with nothing but volunteers. They did a great job with the minimal props and effects they had and did well to put on a good show. The hallway with the swinging heads is also a nice touch. I say check it out if you are in the area and the money helps the school so it's win win. They really seem to like what they do and they take pride in scaring people. I heard that they want to increase the things they do next year and heard some ideas which sound neat and interesting. They also have a nice blend of classic scares and monsters mixed with newer stuff. They try to do things that the other places don't and they don't have the elaborate stuff that others do which in a way makes this a very neat little haunt. Check it out for yourself next year and see what they have to offer!
