Visibility/Location: The blue light on top of the sign pointed me in the right direction.

Wait Entertainment: The live cameras were awesome. I saw someone crawl past the camera. Also I recognized a few classic movies like Army of Darkness.

Length of Event: About 30 minutes, I got lost in the library though.

Actor Performance: Oh my God. The actors were insane this year. Very well done, you though their "skit" was ove rand they'd hit you with another one. Amazing.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Great, I never saw anyone in front of me.

Appropriate Ages: 12 and up. Lots of gore. The usual for St. Matthew's.

Props / Special FX: Great use of strobe lights. They had a really cool green fog hallway. Oh, and my friend almost got hit by a train.

Costumes / Make-up: The costumes were cool. Nobody was the same.

Summary: Great job this year. Pretty scary. The group in front of me didnt make it in the first room before bailing. Pretty intense. Well worth the price of admission. I'll be back again with more of my friends. Totally!!!
