| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: Very High | Atmosphere: Very Good|
Visibility/Location: Fairly easy to find, just follow their directions on the website. Take it slow, they are country roads!
Wait Entertainment: Music, screaming, and sirens all help in the scare. Then you can hear the distant hum of a chainsaw! Definitely setting the tone for the scare to come!
Length of Event: Nice length, although I wish it could have kept going, although the twenty to thirty minutes was nice. I am thinking of a nice 90 minute movie length, where it feels like you are in a movie! Oh well, that would be a lot to strive for!
Actor Performance: Very good, the slow walking and then all of a sudden quick movement coming after you was a good effect. Rattling chains and moaning, really added to it too!
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: They spaced out people pretty good, I would suggest going with a smaller group of people, the less people in your group, the more scared you will be. Leave the party-pooper boyfriend at home!
Appropriate Ages: Their suggestion is not for kids under 13, and I would agree. I definitely think it is more for teens and adults.
Props / Special FX: Chainsaws, old fashioned gas lanterns, blood coming out of the faucets, very awesome!
Costumes / Make-up: Good costumes, and they made sure there was always darkness that lent to the aura of their costumes. I think if there was too bright of lights for you to examine their costumes you wouldn't really see the fearful sight and only the costume!
Summary: I haven't been to a haunted attraction since I was in high school ten years ago, so I was excited for this. It was very good, they did a great job, the characters really played into quite well, all the way down to the security guard that lets you in with the southern bayou accent. Coffins opening and closing, and Dr. Orment's patients following you pleading for help really adds to the suspense, making you hope that it will soon be over with yet leaving you with a craving for more!
