Visibility/Location: Been there before so it was easy to find, but if you weren't familiar with the area I could see why it would be hard to find!

Wait Entertainment: The decorations in the waiting area were well done, but I kept waiting for someone in costume to work the line, but it never happened. They did have a TV playing movie trailers.

Length of Event: We were in a group of 5 and it took us a little over 10 minutes to go through!

Actor Performance: It is hard to rate this because it seemed to me that there were a lot of young people trying to scare adults and that is hard to do! The kids were trying hard!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: We never ran into another group, but that was due to the fact that we held onto a rope and had a guide.

Appropriate Ages: I think that this haunt is more for children.

Props / Special FX: This haunt had excellent props, but you could see how they were being run, the cords, etc. were visible. This haunt was lit up way too much and you knew what to expect.

Costumes / Make-up: They were pretty good. Nothing exceptional, but they used them in appropriate scenes.

Summary: I think that this haunt has good "eye candy", but it would have been better if as much effort was put into the scares that were put into the decorations!

Visibility/Location: It was little hard to find using our GPS, but once we got close we did see a flashing light and inflatable people. Having to pay $3 to park put a little damper on our fun!

Wait Entertainment: There was guy in a wheelchair and another guy walking the line they were entertaining for the most part. Although I could have done without all the nose picking. That is gross,not scary!

Length of Event: It took our group about 15 minuted to go through. We went on a slow night and we did not have to wait in line very long at all.

Actor Performance: We were in a group of 10 and the actors always jumped out too early! It was also obvious where there were going to come out from.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: I think that sending in 10 at a time is way too many, but we never did run into a another group. Also, the other 5 people that went in with us were not part of our group, so that took out some of the fun also.

Appropriate Ages: 8 and up

Props / Special FX: They had amazing eye candy and the I thought the scents that went along with the themes was good also!

Costumes / Make-up: They put a lot of effort into the costumes and make-up! They were very creative!

Summary: We drove over 2 hours to get there and overall we were a little diappointed by the lack of scares. Our group decided as a whole that the haunt was well decorated, but the scaring was very limited!
