Visibility/Location: I am familiar with the area so it was ver easy for me to find. Good location out in country.

Wait Entertainment: We did not have to wait long maybe 5 minutes and we even ate first and still only waited about 5 minutes with a line. Very fast moving line when paying to get in.

Length of Event: About a 1-2 hours. My friends and I were there for 5 hours. We did things several times.

Actor Performance: I think the perfomers did a good job. They were very energetic. They would sneak up on you and you would not even know til you turned around. They were not to scarey for the kids.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: It is spread out so this is not a problem at all. You may stand in line a total of 10 minutes like with the Tram until it gets back. 

Appropriate Ages: I have a daughter who is 8 and I think some things would have been okay for her, but not the prison. The tram and hayrides would be great. There was a little boy about 6 on it and he loved it.

Props / Special FX: It seemed like the staff spent some time on the props and I think for a small company is was suitable and well done.

Costumes / Make-up: The costumes were very good. Some were scarier then others and some were just funny. Makeup was good as well.

Summary: I really enjoyed this the atmosphere was very much the feel of halloween. I think they could do more but only cause I had such a blast I wanted to stay longer and do more. The firepits around were great, you could get warm and drink some cider or cocoa. I loved it and hope it is back next year. The food was good and staff was very friendly. Well worth the money in my opinion.
