Visibility/Location: easy to find. could use more signs along the way but it wasnt too bad

Wait Entertainment: there were a few people walking around scaring the visitors. it was pretty fun to watch

Length of Event: not very long

Actor Performance: they did good but they could have been better. it could have been more scary if they got closer to us and had better costumes

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: we didnt run into another group. it was very well paced

Appropriate Ages: 10+

Props / Special FX: i liked when we had to go through the diagonal hallway and when we crawled. the crawling could have been better if someone was there to scare us though

Costumes / Make-up: they were average. they had some pretty good masks

Summary: it was alright. it could have been better and one thing to make it better was if it were longer. it seemed so short that while we were waiting in line a lot of people were saying it wasnt worth it. but overall they did a decent job

Visibility/Location: it was easy to find. there were signs along the road to help and a good amount of parking space

Wait Entertainment: they had some tvs playing creepy movie clips so spooky music and some intersting props here and there. they could have used some actors to scare people while they wait to make it better. overall it wasnt too bad though

Length of Event: about a half hour

Actor Performance: they did very well. they scared me and had me shaking (and im from another haunt!). they did very well and they were every where!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: this could have been better. our group got spilt into three groups. mine was the second and we ran into our lead group and our third group ran into us. it might be better if they seperated the groups earlier

Appropriate Ages: 13+

Props / Special FX: they have very good props! their spinning vortex is outstanding. there was a little to many strobe lights though. the effect of each room decreased because of the reapeated strobes.

Costumes / Make-up: very well done. if they didnt have carefully done makeup they had a spooky mask and almost every one had a correct costume to go with

Summary: from another haunt's point-of-view they did very well. it is worth your money. they have creative rooms throughout and even though it looks small, it's actually quite long. they are very spooky. they could use some actors in the waiting line, and maybe some new lines, instead of always screaming nothing to people. overall they did great. im glad i went here and i hope others are satisfied going there too. a job well done
