Visibility/Location: I am from Wisconsin so we had no problem finding this place. When we arrived there were alot of people already in line for the screamtorium.

Wait Entertainment: the line was so long that we waited about 2 hours just to enter. they had loud metal music on (cool) and the guy taking our tickets when we finally got to the door was soooooooooo scary - he did a great job freaking out our group before we even got into the haunt. There were alot of people running around and being chased by a chainsaw through the parking lot.

Length of Event: the screamatorium was about 20 minutes

Actor Performance: OM Flipping GOD!!!! the actors were so scary and very intense. they chased you out of every scene and woulnd't back down at all. the guy in the white strobe room with the chainsaw made a girl in our group run into the wall and then she fell to the floor and started screaming hystericaly. All the actors were very loud even over the loud music that they had playing inside. It was defintely an adrelaine rush. I don't really know what the last reviewer was talking about. maybe they just went on a slower night.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: We only caught up with another group once and that's because my retarded friends were to scared to move. Everyone was pushing and shoving and it was crazy.

Appropriate Ages: do to some of the content and scare level i wouldn't recomend it for 13 and under.

Props / Special FX: This place had so many cool scenes and they all really made you have a creepy feeling all the way through. even the carnival. the ending really made you feel like you were in a dark dungeon after walking down a tilted ramp with fog and cool lights. The 2 scenes that really impressed us were the dr. office and the baby room even though everything was a 10+

Costumes / Make-up: The actors didnt really need any makeup - they were that intense. They did have some cool makeup effects and costumes - they all really added to the scenes they were in.

Summary: This place was so flipping GREAT- we want to come back again on halloween. For there first year they did an amazing job and i can't wait to see what they do next year. If you love to be scared you have to go to the screamatorium. it's worth the price and the wait.
