Visibility/Location: No problems. Lots of signs to point the way. Parking was right next to the attraction.

Wait Entertainment: They had actors that would come out of nowhere & scare people waiting to go in.

Length of Event: Depending on the time it takes you to get through the maze it's anywhere from 30-45 minutes

Actor Performance: I thought they all did a great job. They had some really great masks & other costume effects

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: We never saw anybody that wasn't part of our group or one of the actors once we got started

Appropriate Ages: We had a wide range of ages. They recommend 8 & up but we had a 14 & 10 year old that refused to go in after they saw they actors going around scaring people waiting to go in. Really depends on the person

Props / Special FX: They did a great job. They had strategically placed lighting & other surprising props along the route. I especially liked the coal mine set. It was pitch black & freaky.

Costumes / Make-up: Really liked the make up they used that glowed in the dark. Those people were freaky. They had a variety of different characters so you never knew who was around the corner

Summary: It's definitely worth the money. Even the drive out was kind of creepy. The workers were very friendly when they weren't trying to scare the heck out of you. They have a little fire to keep you warm while you wait & a food/beverage stand. Even if we thought we knew what was gonna happen we still screamed. They were very sneaky. An actor would be right next to you & you'd not no it until it was too late. We're definitely going back next year. It's our new tradition.
