Visibility/Location: Once we entered the town of Forest City there were small signs that did lead us to the ticket booth. This is a small town and really not difficult to find.

Wait Entertainment: The Butcher was there as always to give us girls the creeps breathing down our necks and we didn't have to worry about the one eyed woman looking for a husband we didn't have a guy with us but pitied the ones that did -

Length of Event: We spent about two hours there total cause they have so much going on. The movie museum along with getting something warm to drink was really great.

Actor Performance: Some of the characters were dead on and didn't break character once. We did get a detailed account from a priest in the mummy scene that we didn't need to know. For having little kids in the doll scene - wow! They were killer - literally.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: I don't know what they have done different this year but things have changed. We didn't once run into another group.

Appropriate Ages: I would recommend this being for ten and up.

Props / Special FX: They have added some animated props for fillers in some of the areas. We were so busy watching the animated prop that we didn't see the zombie almost on us.

Costumes / Make-up: I think they have really stepped up the program this year and you can tell that they have worked with purpose and really thought about what they are adding to the program. Make up stepped up and no over use of masks.

Summary: I enjoy this haunt every year and really think they are stepping things up. With the house and the church being closed I was a little worried that things would not be as good. I was not disappointed however. I am anxious to see what improvements are coming in the future. Once again this haunt did NOT disappoint us. Way to go Fright Night - always feel like I get the most bang for the buck!

Visibility/Location: The front of the attraction has alot of buildings and a food truck in the way. Other then that I have been competing here for ten plus years. I love it and the amount of change this year is so good to see it.

Wait Entertainment: This show and event was great. This year the museum has changed some and I normally like seeing the butcher but this year he wasn't in character but a short bit of time. There was also a guy who was hanging on my husband. It was truly creepy until I heard him speak n realized she was a he.....n

Length of Event: 1 1/2 hour to do all four with the hay rack to and from

Actor Performance: This year they are averaging a 9 out of 10 this year

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: I was in a group of four this year and I didn't run into any one.

Appropriate Ages: 10 - 15 Depending on maturity level

Props / Special FX: I loved all the dolls but all the exposed lights where not good hope to see this change during ur new evolution this year

Costumes / Make-up: I have seen a lot of things change some for the better and some for the worst. Now the make up is one for the better and one for the worst would be not enough scare and creepy factor for me....

Summary: First off for one my friends and I do believe we want more chainsaws and we wand more scare factions RSVP. The one thing for me was the creepy lil girls. On a second note I was pleased with the curb appearance of fright night this year. Thank you for all the years of fun. And all the years of scares from everyone involved. Thank you all so much.......
