Visibility/Location: We came from an hour away and we didn't have any problems finding this event. It is very easy to access off of I-90 and follow the signs.

Wait Entertainment: Our group was quite impressed with the set-up of this event. They had 3 different attractions at this location which seemed to offer something for all ages. They had some entertainment in the parking lot area and a concession stand. We heard ALOT of people screaming!

Length of Event: Our group attended the Screamatorium which was put on by the Trail of Screams. I would say it took about 20 minutes to get through this attraction. (I guess it depends on how fast you can run)

Actor Performance: We had a group of six people and we were ALL scared to death! All the actors were in-your-face and VERY INTENSE throughout the whole attraction. The clown in the strobe light room was scary as H**L. He was jumping on the chainlink and then followed us with no stopping. All the actors did an EXCELLENT job and fit nicely into their scenes. They utilized alot of different type scares which was very impressive. The detail in the scenes also complemented the actor performance. This event is definitely worth seeing!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Compared to their outdoor attraction with a little longer wait sometimes, the groups here seemed to be moving along with no problem. They had a nice waiting area which added to the whole creepy atmosphere.

Appropriate Ages: I wouldn't recommend it for 14 and under due to the intensity and some content.

Props / Special FX: OMG!!! they really went all out - the scenes are unbelievable (even the pitch black areas where they had a few surprises). The lighting transition from scene to scene is remarkable and the props are VERY realistic (like the Nursery and Dr. Office). They really had a nice mix of detail, total darkness, hallways and alot of turns and twists.

Costumes / Make-up: The costumes and makeup were very realistic for every scene. Some actors you couldn't even see until they were right in your face! They utilized great special fx makeup with no masks- thank God!

Summary: Overall I can't think of a better haunted house we have attended in the past. For a new attraction they did a remarkable job. This haunt, the actors and the scenes are VERY professional and VERY realistic. We came from Wisconsin to check it out because we have been a huge fan of the Trail of Screams )(and we will definitely be coming back to check that out!) Thanks so much to the creators, the actors and everyone who made this event well worth the drive and the $10 we paid to get in. We will definitely be telling all our friends. GOOD WORK GUYS!!!
