|Scare Factor: Very High | Atmosphere: Very Good|
Visibility/Location: Since our group drove from Wisconsin we had a slight problem finding it but when we did there was a light at the camp entrance along with a flashing arrow sign which was visible from the road.
Wait Entertainment: There was this really creepy monster walking around the parking area and scared our group to death. They also had loud music playing at the front entrance. The first building really set the mood for the beginning of the trail.
Length of Event: About 30-35 minutes. After reading the last review I don't understand how this person waited in line for 4 hours when he arrived at 7:00. Our group didn't get there until 8 and we didn't even wait that long.
Actor Performance: The actors were EXCELLENT considering they are probably exhausted from a long season. We truly enjoyed every scene and they displayed alot of energy and a high scare level.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Once again, our wait wasn't that bad and if you plan on coming to an outdoor attraction at the end of October dress warm and be prepared to wait in the cold or stay home! It's not the middle of July. I have been to this event for the last couple of years and I really liked the fact that they didn't have any guides to take you through - it really added to the scare factor. Our group never ran into any other groups along the trail. They were quite busy for a Sunday night but we never WAITED FOR 4 HOURS????
Appropriate Ages: 13 & up like they say.
Props / Special FX: Their scenes were highly detailed from strobes to 3D to dead chickens hanging in the old house. I give them a A++++++!
Costumes / Make-up: KUDOS to whoever does their makeup and costumes...they were GREAT! I liked the clowns and the doctor -he was just downright creepy. The syringes on the crazy patient were a neat touch as well. GOOD JOB!
Summary: Once again, I must comment on the last review. I thought the event was very well put together and our group didn't have one problem with the wait line. I don't understand how this person can say this - I have been to many haunts and I think this one was very organized - especially how busy they were on a Sunday night. Oh well, I guess you can't please everyone. I can't wait to see what they come up with for 2008 - keep up the good work for the last couple of days!
