Visibility/Location: The sign visibility is ok, if you are paying attention, you shouldn't have a problem seeing the sign. 

Wait Entertainment: The wait entertainment is the same as last year. The atmosphere really makes up for the lack of "in line" entertainment. The Michael Meyers character does a great job.

Length of Event: It was great. Not too short, not too long to where it gets boring. It took us about 25 minutes to get through the whole trail.

Actor Performance: They did a FANTASTIC job from beginning to end. I really have to give everyone kudos. Even the people on the trail did a great job. Our favorite was the house with the Leather Face character and the 2 dead girls. Leather Face chased our group throughout the house into the back yard which had sheets hung up on the clothes line! Just like the movie. It was great.  
The clowns are getting redundant. They've been a part of the TOS the past 3 years (that I can remember). 
Overall, everyone did a great job staying in character. The costumes were amazing. The attention to detail is great! A lot of blood, body parts. Not just kids in sweatshirts wearing rubber masks, these guys do it right.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Absolutely perfect. No guides this year (thank goodness). Each group has a a designated leader who takes a flashlight. We never ran into another group...we did hear them screaming though.

Appropriate Ages: We had an 11 year old in our group and she loved it. I'd say at least 11 and up.

Props / Special FX: Amazing again. Like I said, the attention to detail is great.

Costumes / Make-up: Awesome...unlike another area attraction

Summary: 10 out of 10. We loved it. It was definitely better than last year. The attention to detail, monsters on the trail, and no guides made this year a lot of fun. We did pay an extra $5 for the speed pass, we would reccomend it! It saved us a 2 1/2 hour wait.
