|Scare Factor: Medium | Atmosphere: Good|
Visibility/Location: They are on Weber Road and the big orange pumpkin is easy to spot.
Wait Entertainment: That was great, almost better than inside the house. Monsters were everywhere and there was rock music playing.
Length of Event: Probably 15 minutes. There were a lot of staging areas and places like you had to stop and wait, so it's hard to tell.
Actor Performance: They did a great job in statesville, but in the city of the dead, there were a lot of young kids. Short monsters are not that scary.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: This was ok, but worse in the statesville prison. There were a number of times we had to stop, so they could regulate the flow of customers, but we still bunched together several times. They need to not let so many people in at a time.
Appropriate Ages: With the strong language they use inside, I'd say 13 and above.
Props / Special FX: A couple of nice animated monsters.
Summary: Statesville has always been one of my all time favorites and it is always fun, but it's just not worth the $30. There are other haunted houses that offer more for less. It's still a good time, but it's just not worth the price they are asking, which seems to rise nearly every year.
