Visibility/Location: If you follow the signs you won't have a problem finding the place.

Wait Entertainment: INSANE! A ton of pneumatic air hoses that will blast you while waiting in line. Also, a cool graveyard with cool hedstones to read. Also there were several monsters antagonizing the people that looked like they were scared.

Length of Event: 15 and 1/2 minutes

Actor Performance: Very High. They had 3 actors especially at the end that made most of the people in my group start to cry! The didn't break any rules but got as legally close as possible to you. They all looked as though they were paid actors although I heard later that it is completely run by volunters! For people voluntering, that was completely unexpected becuase I've been to 10+ haunted houses and have never in my life been that scared in a haunt.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Very Good. Especially hard to control becuase of a maze in the begining. I never saw another group and all the monsters were reset before I entered the room.

Appropriate Ages: Yes. If you have little kids they have non-scary hours which is the same thing with extra lighting and no monsters.

Props / Special FX: AMAZING!! Especially the pneumatical devices and pop-outs that they had, the waterfall room was particularly awesome.

Costumes / Make-up: So-so. I've seen beter costumes in other haunts.

Summary: I'VE NEVER HAD TO CRAW; BEFORE!!! It was amazing that you had to crawl through a porton of this haunt! It was genius! Also, all the rooms related to a theme centered around pirates so you knew what the room was supposed to represent. It was a hardcore haunt. If you have little kids, don't bring them during the scary hours becasue they'll be scared for life! It was deffinetly worth $7! I'm going to be going to this haunt every year. Good Job guys!
