Visibility/Location: The directions were a bit off, but you can see the two large air ghosts from the street. At first I was a bit put off by the outside decor, but dont let that deter you from visiting.

Wait Entertainment: Good. Nice atmosphere. Sort of rundown industrial. There was a large screen projection. A few actors in line. The night I visited there was a female gothic corpse . She was extremely entertaining.

Length of Event: 10 minutes, maybe a few more. 

Actor Performance: Great! Alot of actors. Very in your face. Everything seemed to be executed right on que. The clowns were a incredibly animated group. My favorite were the hillbillies.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: This was my first visit to this haunt. I went with a friend, and they let the two of us through...I'm not sure if they normally do that...or if that was because it was opening weekend? Even still there was a bit of a line and I assume if they wanted to get things over quick they would have let a larger group in. I'm not complaining at all. The only time we ran into other people was at the maze.

Appropriate Ages: I'm 34, I enjoyed it. I'd guess it's appropriate for ages 13 plus

Props / Special FX: The visual effects were very detailed. 98% of the scenes left me feeling very satisfied. There was a nice interaction between the actors and the props. The vortex tunnel was efective.

Costumes / Make-up: I saw one actor out of place in the maze. Also, there was an actor who followed us up to the time we reached the maze. He was dressed in street clothes (black tshirt/black cargo pants/combat boots). I'm not sure what his role was? 
Everything else was perfect. The Dr. Satan character was noteworthy.

Summary: I drove from Indiana, about 75 miles, and would do it again. I wish the haunt had been a bit longer, but felt gratified in the end. The wait area has some nice art, but the plain plastic buckys hanging from the ceiling were a small let down.. considering the great detail spent on the props inside the haunt. Well worth the $15.00
