Visibility/Location: Easy to get to, we usually go here so we know exactly where it is located

Wait Entertainment: Every now and again a monster from inside would come out and scare people waiting in line. Also they had music from different horror movies playing.

Length of Event: About 5-8 minutes.

Actor Performance: Great, everyone was on cue and gave it there all to scare the crap out of you.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Awesome. They did a really good job in this categorey. We never once ran into a group, and no one ran into us.

Appropriate Ages: 10 and up

Props / Special FX: There wasnt that many props, but there masks were amazing, they had at least 4 of the ghastly grabber costumes that were really scary.Also they had a vibraitng floor which was really effective, and a air hose that scared you.

Costumes / Make-up: Good. Everyone had on a costume that went with the room they were in.

Summary: Overall this was a great event to visit. For a home haunt they did an oustanding job, it was better than some of the bigger haunts and alot scarier. The clown room was amazing and really scary. Keep up the good work guys.

Visibility/Location: If you do not know where the event is located its very hard to find, they dont really have any signs, but since I go every year I know exactly where they are loacated.

Wait Entertainment: Good. They had around 4 characters that where scaring the crowd, they also had music such as thriller, and ghostbusters playing, and a creepy voice that explained you where at Terror on Washington Street.

Length of Event: I would say around 15-20 Minutes.

Actor Performance: OUTSTANDING!!!!!! Everyone was in character and on cue. The creepy guy in the entry room was by far the creepiest actor I have seen this year. Also the nurse that pops out in the operating room scared the pee out of me.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Great. We did not catch up to the group in front of us, and no one caught up to us.

Appropriate Ages: I would say 12 and up. Some scenes were very intense.

Props / Special FX: AWESOME! Every room was decorated to the T! You really felt like you where in a reall place with every room. Also the pictures in the hallway that turned into corpses was amazing.

Costumes / Make-up: Great. Every one had costumes and makeup that coresponded to their rooms. Once again the guy in the entrance room was very creepy!

Summary: SUPERB!!! We go to this haunted house every year and I am never dissapointed, and this year was no exception. They really know how to scare the crap out of everyone. There props and rooms just get better and better. Keep up the good work!!

Visibility/Location: The Location of this event is awesome. It is right downtown in a very creepy building on the corner of their main drag. They had decorated the windows with halloween stuff, and there was a car parked on the sidewalk with a stobe light in it.

Wait Entertainment: This area could use a little work. There was a band playing, but I dont really like country music that much. They could use a couple monsters to roam the crowd to help.

Length of Event: 10-15 Minutes. It was alot longer than last years. They added some really great dark hallways outside this year.

Actor Performance: REALLY GOOD!!! I was impressed, last year when I went it seemed like they only had Jr. High kids working it, and they all missed their cues, or were not scary. This year was AMAZING!!! Everyone was in character and on cue. Especially one on the people outside in the dark hallways who was whispering creepy things to me and my friend with a deep slow voice.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Well, this is hard to rate, when we were outside waiting there was only about 15-20 people in front of us and it took probably 30-40 minutes before we could get in, but once inside we only ran into the group in front of us once.

Appropriate Ages: 10 and up

Props / Special FX: They props for each rooms were really good. They set the atmospher and kept you distracted from the scares.

Costumes / Make-up: Good. Most everyone had on costumes and masks that coresponded with their rooms.

Summary: I run another haunted hosue in the area and usually on our time off we try to visit as many haunted houses as we can and I was really worried to go through Hall of Horrors this year. I went last year and was a little dissapointed. But as a haunt owner I know to allways give haunts second chances, cause I know ares wasnt great are first year. I am so glad that I went this year they did an outstanding job. The building they have just really sets the mood for this haunted house. There setup to this year was awesome. With the small, dark, winding hallways and the great scares this is an event that I wil definetley be returnign to again this year and for years to come. GREAT JOB GUYS KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!
