Visibility/Location: They have a big banner hung out by the highway which is very helpful, but their road is still a little difficult to locate at night.

Wait Entertainment: wait entertainment was good. the chainsaw guy was scarey and did a good job of keeping you on your toes.

Length of Event: 15 minutes

Actor Performance: the actors did a fair job here.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: things went good, however i did feel like for the size of the building it got over with maybe a little too fast.

Appropriate Ages: 10 and up

Props / Special FX: the spinning boxes are a must see !

Costumes / Make-up: make up was very well done. they all seemed to have been professionally painted.

Summary: ashmore estates is a good haunt to check out. the building alone is creepy by itself. a few things that in my opinion would make this an even better haunt, would be to make the thing last a little longer, and to change it so that we dont have to crawl, that part kinda hurt. but in the end i would say that ashmore and it's actors all did a great job and that me and all of my friends will be back again.

Visibility/Location: way easy to find. they have a lit up sign and a "real" hearse parked out front.

Wait Entertainment: excellent. they had a guy that looked like the crow who was up on the roof which is very high up, he acted as if he was going to jump on top of my group. then, he vanished and was on the ground behind us. that was too freaky.

Length of Event: 20 - 25 minutes

Actor Performance: all the actors here do a great job. at times i wondered if me and my friends were going to actually get to ever leave there alive again !

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: things went well inside. never met up with any other groups, and they allow you to guide yourself thru this haunt. which is the best !

Appropriate Ages: 14 and up.

Props / Special FX: the guy in the trench coat that disappeared from the roof and then was on the ground made us freak out and think of criss angel all at the same time, the girl that follows you in the house is so creepy, the guy that jumps out of the ceiling in the house was really awesome. the music is good everywhere in the haunt. in the woods the chainsaw guys got us big time. one of them has a gas mask on, and the other one is wearing an evil clown mask ! they are complete freaks and we ran from them because we thought they really wanted to keep us there, one of my friends got so scared that she wetted herself hahaha. the clowns were wild, the mirrors were great and the electric chair guy was one of the most real looking animatronics ive ever seen. just getting out of this place was a special effect all in itself.

Costumes / Make-up: the costumes were well done, and the make-up was good also.

Summary: this haunt is well worth the money and the trip. my friends and i will be going back again next weekend. they are always changing things there so you never know what you are in store for until you are inside ! and we all still want to know how that one guy could be on the roof and then disappear and be beside us on the ground ? i would recomend this haunt to everyone.
