Visibility/Location: Had alittle trouble finding the place but i did.

Wait Entertainment: just your average wait a few random actors going grrrrrrrrrr or saying im going to die but thats all

Length of Event: 20 minutes

Actor Performance: it was pretty bad for so early in the eavning i wish i could of seen more energy

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: there were a few jams here and there but nothing to really care about

Appropriate Ages: ALL

Props / Special FX: TOO many strobes hitting me in the eyes. so when an actor poped out i couldent see them

Costumes / Make-up: not much variation most actors has whitefaces with black eyes an blood

Summary: I thought it was a total waste of my time i should of just payed and left that might of actually scared me. Giving people my money for nothing... gives me chills. but on a good note i was never touched by another actor and they didnt get too close so if some angry coustmer did swing nobody would get hit.

Visibility/Location: It was a house that was easy to find. All you would have to do is look up the directions on their website and they even have a Map Quest link to get the directions and if thats not enough there is a huge sign of the side of the road that says"STATESVILLE HAUNTED PRISION"

Wait Entertainment: In this house i actually enjoied the wait. There was music, monsters, and even an occasonial scare from one of the actors.

Length of Event: All in all to it took 30 minutes to get through Statesville and another 25 to get through City of The Dead

Actor Performance: I was surprised that at 10:30 (when I got in the house)that the actors were constantly in my face and never stopped it was the most agressive house I've ever been in. I couldn't go ten feet with out having an actor in my face.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Both houses were very well prepaired to keep grop sises small and allowing time for the first group to get into the house before sending another group in. SOOO i didnt even catch up to the group in front of me nor even see them... I kinda freaked me out.

Appropriate Ages: This house is way too intense for children undre the age of AT LEAST 13 any younger and you'll definately be leaving through one of the emergency exits

Props / Special FX: The houses were full of anamatronics, strobes,sounds,fountains,fog, and my favroite,a monster they had that was an anamatronic Daemon that the actors like Georgie. It's about 12ft tall and Litterally walks towards you dragging 2 mangled bodies and a massive saw... AWESOME!!!

Costumes / Make-up: Each of the many different rooms had their own paint scheme and there were loads of unique special characters. which alot of houses I've been to dont have

Summary: To sum it all up. A great scare. The actors never stop, and they makes sure that the coustomers in the house never stop, they constantly keep you moving, and of course at the end of the house the CLOWNS. So I highly recomend this House to anyone who wishs to have a Goot time in a scary place
