Visibility/Location: Good. Well lit. There had the blow up dancing ghost things.

Wait Entertainment: None. No actors.

Length of Event: 8 minutes, and we walked slow

Actor Performance: Blah, just blah. Typical jump out of corners, bang and scream tactics. I was at the end of the line... I cant tell you how many times I saw the actors go back into their hiding places. A few times in the hallways I poked around in openings covered by black fabric just to see if someone was in there.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Good. Never ran into another group. Some rude woman, in plain clothes was in the first room and told everyone to put their hands on the casket. She was just so rude I didn't feel like doing it. I did it not to be a jerk, and what happened? NOTHING! She walked across the room and opened the door ...

Appropriate Ages: 7+ This seemed like more of a fun house. Certain scenes from 2 years ago that made this a more adult venue were either removed or altered.

Props / Special FX: I remember Dream Reapers having the most detailed scenes. This year it just seemed like alot of black walls. I remember Missing People signs in the hillbilly are, those were gone. What happened to Dr. Satan? The maze this year was really short ( which is probably a really good thing, otherwise the haunt could have passed for a fun house).

Costumes / Make-up: Didn't even pay attention. There was a guy at the end in a wheel chair that kept saying he had to go to the bathroom...he was right at the exit, after the gift shop..he was probably the best costume.

Summary: Ughh... maybe I expected too much from them? I just felt let down. What happened to this haunt?!?! 
One inside there was nothing that scared me. When I went to this haunt in the past I felt the details were enough to make the event worth the visit. This year I dont feel the details are enough to compensate
