Visibility/Location: Hard to find, not many signs

Wait Entertainment: Boring, some of the people trying to scare you were in normal clothes and a cheap mask- not scary

Length of Event: 15 minutes

Actor Performance: Actor performance could use improvement. Just yelling "boo" randomly will scare young kids, but leave anyone older bored

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: felt like we were rushed. We had to go through with a group of people we didn't know, so all of the "scares" were ruined since we were in the back.

Appropriate Ages: 7 and up. Good for family entertainment, but not really scary

Props / Special FX: 3D art was interesting. We liked the spinning hole.The props weren't scary enough for anyone over age 10. I've heard that the maze at the end is fun, however we were rushed right through it

Costumes / Make-up: Very basic, needs improvement. More make-up and more detailed costumes.

Summary: There was a lot of dead space. Seems that more props and actors would help alot.More wait entertainment would make the long wait more fun. Outdoor decorations needed too.
