Visibility/Location: Very easy to find. It's in the middle of a lot of one-way streets, so you may have to circle the block a few times if you're unfamiliar with the area, but the sign is big.

Wait Entertainment: Unsure. We got there very early and not a lot was set up yet in the waiting area. The people who were there were very friendly though, and let us in even though it was not quite ready yet.

Length of Event: Approximately 20 minutes

Actor Performance: The actors were exceptional. I'm very easily scared and only decided to go to this haunted house because I have a friend that is one of the actors. I was absolutely terrified. Also, I dropped my keys when I ran screaming from one of the rooms, and one of the actors chased me down to give them back to me. I really appreciated that, as going back to look for them was not really an option for me :)

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Definitely quick. We didn't see any other guests.

Appropriate Ages: I would not bring anyone under about 13 years old. It was scary for me, and I'm 25.

Props / Special FX: Exceptional! From what I saw...I was hiding from a lot of them. I was impressed with the actors on stilts, especially in the final room of the house. It was hard to tell what was real and what was prop. I can't remember a lot of specific special effects, but what I saw was impressive.

Costumes / Make-up: Pretty good. I, like some of the other reviewers, thought the props were the best part.

Summary: I was terrified the whole time. If you are easily scared, you may want to make sure you have someone you can hide behind through this haunted house. There was a chainsaw wielding character that scared me most, and I bolted away from him. The actors are very good at timing. My husband was not scared at all, but he was impressed with all of the actors and special effects.
