Patron Flow Inside Attraction: There were a few people viewing the attraction from the sidewalk and more people slowly driving by the haunt.

Props / Special FX: Two yards full of incredibly well-timed animatronics including a working crematorium, walking zombies, the dead rising from a variety of places, and a funeral.

Summary: This is a magnificent haunted lawn display. I applaud the creator(s) of this haunt who have produced a masterpiece, a symphony of horror. I've viewed many lawn haunts through the years. Yet, I've never seen anything like it. Houses of the Dead is definitely one of the best haunts I've ever seen. Regardless of how far you travel, it is well-worth the trip. This is one haunt you'll want to view year after year.
