Visibility/Location: It was easy to find

Wait Entertainment: There wasn't a wait

Length of Event: It took about 30 min to go through

Actor Performance: The actors were good. They do need to be prepared to interact more when people talk to them

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: No problem with the flow

Appropriate Ages: Defiantly not for under 13

Props / Special FX: The guy with the chainsaw & black & white face was great

Costumes / Make-up: Lots of different types of costumes

Summary: We had a lot of fun. The insane asylum is a great story line. The costume were good too. I liked how they have you come in & sit down & then they tell you you can start. It builds up anticipation. The actors tried to talk with the people. It opened at 7. & we were there by 7:30 with no wait, best time to go. For only 10.00 it was worth it. It would be cool if there would be a concession stand of some type.

Visibility/Location: The location was poorly lit. There was one sign right at the driveway entrance, but other than that it was hard to see. Parking lot had no lighting in it. The location was some kind of greenhouse/landscape area. That added some good creepy atmosphere to the entrance.

Wait Entertainment: We did not have a wait, so we did not see any entertainment.

Length of Event: 15 to 20 minutes

Actor Performance: Actors were great! Well performed and fitting for the role. One part with a someone who "snuck in" and wasn't supposed to be here" was very scary/realistic (a parents worst nightmare). I began to wonder if it was part of the show. (Man with a gun)

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: We were well separated. No other groups caught up to us. We were never kept in an area just wondering what was going on.

Appropriate Ages: We had an 11 year old with us and he enjoyed it. Parental disgression would be best, as I my 12 year old would think it was too scary

Props / Special FX: Awesome bed jumping prop and LOTS of chainsaws!

Costumes / Make-up: Great make up and clothing! Very fitting for the roles

Summary: Great time! Will go again! Location is far from a lot of people, but this time of year, with pumpkin fest, and apple picking, it is right in the heart of that. We enjoyed the performance very much. When I say enjoy, I mean screamed and ran and threw myself into many walls in the haunted house. On a side note. They do check you for weapons upon entry, so that made you feel safer. Plus it helped with not completely freaking out at a specific scene. Very good haunted house for the money. Would go again and recommend to others.

Visibility/Location: We drove past the sigh, at first we weren't sure if it was there. Would really help if you haf more lights or to chop off the branches that were hiding it

Wait Entertainment: Wasn't really an issue, the staff outside came out and talked to us kept us entertain while we waited, very kind!

Length of Event: I do wish it was a little bit longer but thats just me.

Actor Performance: All the actors did a great job, but it really ruins it for us when we see them on their phones or when we see the light from their phones glowing inside their costumes.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: I loved how you walk in and they put music and set that "creep" mood.  
I also love the maze like part.

Appropriate Ages: From what we saw and experienced I would say that it should be age 13 and up

Props / Special FX: The chainsaws always get me, but when they jumped from under the bed!!! Did not see that coming!

Summary: Overall we all had fun loved the part when you have to basically crawl to the next sceen, would be nice if it had us interact a little more. Like giving us choices to pick a different route out or something that could actually make us feel the rush of it all.  
Btw more guts and blood would be nice :) especially on that satanic sceen!  
Every one did a great job loved the decorations and the make us! Actor's did a great job!
