| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: Medium | Atmosphere: Very Good|
Visibility/Location: The location is easy to miss if you don't look for it. Basically, it is a dirt road with a sign and a fire at the end of it. The road does not look like you can drive on it, but it is the entrance.
Wait Entertainment: No entertainment, but the drive to the entrance is about 1/4 mile on winding dirt roads in the woods, so it's entertaining itself.
Length of Event: about 30 minutes or more, depending on how quickly you walk. The trail is huge.
Actor Performance: Very good - not many actors, but the ones that were there took advantage of the wide expanse of woods to appear in the shadows, just out of sight, so you never knew if you were seeing things or if someone was really in the woods coming towards you
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Very good - my friend and i were alone the entire time, which added to the creepiness of the event.
Appropriate Ages: 10+
Props / Special FX: Not too many scenes. The event relied on the sounds of nature and the emptiness of the woods for atmosphere, which worked very well. There were some scenes, though, including zombies, the Ring, and Friday the 13th.
Costumes / Make-up: When actors were encountered they were well dressed and made up, and they stayed in character the entire time.
Summary: Overall, if you're looking for shocks and scares this might not be for you, but if you enjoy a creepy feeling, this place does it better than any I've seen. This is a "take your time" haunt, and the length of the trail and the eeriness of being alone in the woods make for an interesting experience.
