| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: High | Atmosphere: Good|
Visibility/Location: Using your GPS will lead you into the small town of Downs and right into the haunted house attraction. Large illuminated sign indicating the event and dates, no way no miss this !
Wait Entertainment: They had four to five monsters walking the line along with a crazy chainsaw clown - it doesn't get any better than that ..
Length of Event: The entire event took around 10 minutes but that includes an interesting introductory by a zombie prison guard ..
Actor Performance: Every actor was absolutely perfect with their character and delivering some type of scare factor, very nice job !
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The patron flow throughout the attraction was seamless, everything triggered on time and all actors were in position when are group entered their setting ..
Appropriate Ages: I would suggest that most children below 10 years old do not attend this event, however there's considerable in-your-face scares here so judge your own tolerance ..
Props / Special FX: With what they had here all the props are very nicely done and work very well with this event, some light automaton however nothing above the rim here ... Lots of smoke machines and flashing lights, great sounds throughout and everything well timed out - not to bad !
Costumes / Make-up: Costumes and makeup was acceptable here however to many masks, it's hard getting much scare factor from a rubber mask - however the "Physo Clown" and "Grabber Frankenstein" was good.. Costumes worked ok with each character, about average overall ..
Summary: This was our first year here and we had heard that this group brings it all to the event and yes they do.. After arriving at the haunted house you take a very enjoyable trip through the town by hayrack ride, your trip just happens to include a stroll around the town cemetery before you arrive in the town park.. The park contains the ticket booth, food buildings, and optional laser tag entertainment - when finished here you hayrack back to the haunted house.
From entering the event you can see these people have put a lot of energy into giving you a great scare and at $5.00 this is by far the best deal around .. The house isn't long (10 minutes) which includes the intro by the prison guard, various clown settings, pressure room with the steam, etc... Normally this might get the 7 rating but for $5.00 these people have put together a very enjoyable experience and we had a great time while here, would like to see a much larger event because it's that good - so a well deserved solid 8 .. Keep up the great work !
