Visibility/Location: The locatin was very easy to find, especially with the little minie-hears with it's lights flashing at the entrance to the parking ares

Wait Entertainment: THe entertainment was good but could use improving with more attractions.

Length of Event: I didn't time it but I think I went through in a little less than 15 minutes andwell worth the ticket price.

Actor Performance: most of the actors were very good and seemed topu their heart into it.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: My group went through without being pushed by a following group as I have experienced inother haunted houses. However, I have heard othewrs say their group got pressed in with another group but I think this happens because some people want to take in cerain scenes for a longer period and will cause the best houses to get backed up once in a while.

Appropriate Ages: I saw mnay people lined up with small children

Props / Special FX: Special effects were very good and the actors in scenes whererequired did a very good job.The doublew vortex was awsome. It put a real outstanding finish for the house.

Costumes / Make-up: The costumes were very good.but it was interesting to see that there was an effort toget away from masks and make up the faces instead, There was more made up faces this year than last.

Summary: All considered I was very happy with the effects and the enthusiasm of the actors. 
The Butcher room and the Autopsy room were very gory, especially in the autopsy room when the mad doctor through intestins from the body onto the people. We really felt like we needed to check ourselves for blood stains. And the monkeys that jump out of the cage were certainly unexpected. One of my favorite illusions was the non-reflecting mirror. You look into it and there is no reflection of you. Makes you feel like maybe you are a vampire, since they have no reflection. I am definately recomending it to my friends.
