Visibility/Location: There was a huge sign on a pole and a flashing sign directing you into the camp entrance. If you are from the area (or not) it is pretty easy to find.

Wait Entertainment: On the night that our group came there was a HUGE crowd with a tall, creepy monster on stilts scaring the people as well as Michael Meyers (always a crowd favorite). The staff was very curtious and they had a snack stand and a gift shop.

Length of Event: About 30-35 minutes

Actor Performance: All the actors proved that they could scare the crap out of you. They literally had our entire group screaming at the top of our lungs. Even by the time we entered the attraction (after almost 4 hours in line)the actors didn't seem to lose any energy at all or break character. The clowns in the circus were KICK-ASS making you think they were props but then came alive!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: We only ran into one group which we thought was pretty good considering the massive amount of people that were waiting in line.

Appropriate Ages: I think is is definitely not for children under 13 (I might even say 14)

Props / Special FX: The props and detail were unbelievable in the scenes. I have been through this event for the last couple of years and I will honestly say that they went all out this year. Each scene made you feel like you were in a whole different place and each scene was packed with scares from the beginning to the end.

Costumes / Make-up: Excellent! All the actors (from what I could see after literally running out of the scenes) were dressed in realistic costumes and very effective makeup. I especially liked the manical doctor in the hospital - his bloody scalp was very creepy. I can't believe the review that states all the actors were wearing jeans,  
t-shirts AND rubber masks????? What haunt did this person attend?

Summary: Like I said, I have attended this haunt for the last couple of years and I think this year it KICKED a@@ (censored) !! They did an awesome job with great actors, detailed scenes and old-school SCARES! Keep up the good work AND THREE THUMBS UP!!!!
