| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: High | Atmosphere: Very Good|
Visibility/Location: This haunted house is a gem! However, they need a bit more direction and lighting on the signs to get you in and back to this creepy setting back in the woods of this sportsman club. On the other hand, take the wrong turn and go to the left. You'll find yourself driving around the eerily quiet and abandoned junk yard area and deer infested lakeside property which will get the creepies going in you as you look for signs of civilization.
Wait Entertainment: The wait was just right. 15-20 minutes was just enough time to be tourtured by the 10 ft tree ghoul and the extra crazy chainsaw guy while you wait in line to get in.
Length of Event: It was pretty good. 7-10 minutes...
Actor Performance: This event is run by kids. There are adults taking tickets and supervising, but the ghosts and ghouls are kids/grandkids of the club members. They do a fine job in timing and acting. We especially liked the "Ring" girl who was just the right size and had the perfectly timed ear-piercing scream.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Loved it. No ropes, no guide. You just hang on to the person in front of you for dear life!
Appropriate Ages: 12 and up
Props / Special FX: Rooms had just the right about of lighting. Focus was drawn to inanimate objects when you first walk in the room leaving you prey for the hiding monsters. Good use of noise.
Costumes / Make-up: Very good.
Summary: This HH has the potential for some serious following, though, I'd hate for it to get so big that you had a 2 hour wait to get in. The kids do a much better job of scaring than adults that I've seen in other HHs. Also, having this event at the club allows for a separate building with clean indoor toilets and the ladies of the club prepare food and goodies for hungry patrons. This is an awesome outing.
