Visibility/Location: Ample Free parking and shuttle buses for the spots that were farther away. Plenty of signage.

Wait Entertainment: There was a great old timey radio broadcast while waiting in line. Very funny and spooky at the same time. It was about what happened when a carnival came to the old farm town you are "visiting". Jugglers clowns and monsters in line at times. Not to bad of a wait.

Length of Event: Took about 25 minutes or so to get through the actual haunted house. Much more than I expected. BONUS

Actor Performance: Timing was great. Most actors were extremely convincing ifnot almost too real!!!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Flow was pretty good. And if there was an extremely slow group we were allowed to go ahead of them. One backup but it was quickly resolved.

Appropriate Ages: Even most adults get scared!! NOT for little kids.

Props / Special FX: Vortex was great. Tons of props and beautiful effects. A giant twenty foot tall clown face to walk into the mouth of was quite erie. Claustrophobic chamber was excellent. Overall stunning visually.

Costumes / Make-up: So much attention went into costumes and makeup. I couldnt tell who was real and fake. Fantastic. Especially the people in the woods. No way to spot them.

Summary: If haunted houses were a drug, i would be at an intervention. I have been to so many houses I cant remember them all. This one I will remember forever. It is by far one of the very best I have ever been to. You get so much out of it. There are scares everywhere and stunning set design. It makes use of the forest and four buildings made in the woods specifically for it. The music and sounds running through the entire thing was impressive. Really set the mood for each house and the woods. Amazing. Its pretty hard to scare me or make me feel as if I am dissalussioned, but this does the trick. Simply one of the scariest I have been to. GO GO GO!!! DONT MISS THIS ONE. You wont be dissapointed. (or be able to sleep)
