Visibility/Location: Very easy to find! Located at the large sports dome on the corner of two major roads(corner of Rt. 30/Rt 34,behind public storage if you are having trouble finding it) I would put a bigger sign by the road, we almost missed the driveway.

Wait Entertainment: We were skeptical at first with there only being one character outside, but we were wrong! Major props to the scarecrow guy outside. We are still amazed on how quietly he could stalk around. He kept appearing out of nowhere! We were a little sad that the clown that had been in the line for years wasn't there when we visited. Hopefully he will be there when we go back

Length of Event: I would say about 20 minutes for the haunt. As for the paintball, it depends how much paint you want to buy(we kept going back to buy more)

Actor Performance: Seemed that they were always on point. You can tell these actors care about the performance they put on. Very happy to see they kept the beginning gatekeepers. Great job!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Didn't run into any other groups

Appropriate Ages: 13+

Props / Special FX: We feel lighting was a key factor for this haunt. They did a fantastic job with it, however we would change the lighting outside the haunt, we feel as if it was too bright. As for props, they had some very unique props that we have yet to see anywhere else(We donít want to give anything away)

Costumes / Make-up: Very few masks, you can tell they take great care when doing the makeup. Everyone was done up to look very realistic! Awesome job to whoever they have doing makeup!

Summary: All in all, we feel that this is a very solid haunt. We were skeptical with it being a new location for them(we have been going to their haunt for a few years), however we were pleasantly surprised. Not only did they move locations, but they added go-karts and a zombie paintball shooting gallery into the mix! We feel that the $30 we paid to do all three was very reasonable! We attend many haunts every year and this one will always be a favorite of ours. We will definitely be back again this year. Fantastic job!

Visibility/Location: Next to a sports dome just off a major road but you have to be looking for it as the sign is not relatively large

Wait Entertainment: one guy....but it was Sunday and they may not be expecting many visitors

Length of Event: 16 minutes

Actor Performance: they did well. They are asked to do more to stretch the entertainment value of the event and that they did. there was a clown that we saw twice that really got into her performance.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: I don't know how they would be if they were busy but I imagine it would be fine.

Appropriate Ages: Its a fairly tame haunt compared to the one attraction that is 5 minutes away from it so I would think 10 would be fine.

Props / Special FX: Not a lot as you travel outside from one scene to another but what they did have was well done if not spectacular. There was a clever bed scene that proves you can be eye catching without spending a ton of money. Note to the operators you need to adjust the mirror on your laser tunnel to increase the size of it and you need more fog. It would be your signature effect if you did it correctly. There is one gruesome scene that surprised me based on the tame nature of the event. It was very well done.

Costumes / Make-up: It was nothing you haven't seen before. the characters in the beginning were the most notable.Two girls in a shack were nicely done.

Summary: My only real complaint here was the price. Your a small to medium size haunt so your price should not be that of a large haunt. It is difficult for me get past that as your competitor down the road spent more on one prop than you did on your entire show. Considering your size and limitations( its built on a miniature golf course} you did a nice job with some interesting scenes. Fix the tunnel and add a few more outside actors with some intensity and you might pull off a decent little haunt.
