Visibility/Location: Easy to get to. Sign right in front.

Wait Entertainment: Live footage of the house and scary movies in line with some actors.

Length of Event: It took me awhile to get through the house this year, it was really fun and St. Matthew is known for their difficult ascape routes.

Actor Performance: The actors did the best job I have seen them do. You can tell that they really went out of their way to give you a good scare.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: I never ran into any groups.

Appropriate Ages: 11 and up

Props / Special FX: They did phenominal in this area with the hallways and exits of rooms.

Costumes / Make-up: Every room had a couple actors in it dressed to the surroundings and was very well done.

Summary: The first time I went through it was last year and that was amazingly done. For a haunted house in a church, I thought the actors would give you little boo's and screams, but they did everything scary and very tastefully.St. Matthew is always a treat to go to. It is in my top three haunted houses.
