Visibility/Location: This attraction is located in the middle of nowhere. Could be somewhat hard to find for the first time, but year after year it gets easier.

Wait Entertainment: On opening night they had the standard "Kirby" working the crowd and yes he does a good Yoda type voice.. In larger crowds I am sure they have line workers though, but I have never seen them.

Length of Event: 30 minutes throughout the event, half the attraction is exterior walking through the woods.

Actor Performance: All actors done a great job and stayed on character.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The opening night we moved throughout the attraction seamlessly and I have never been bottlenecked here. They do a excellent job controlling the line movement in this event.

Appropriate Ages: I would say above 10 years old would be right.

Props / Special FX: The props are good, but stayed the same year after year. The new automation monster was great and closed out the event. I think every year the add something new to keep it interesting.

Costumes / Make-up: This attraction has some great make up people, no cheap masks here. The costumes are all detailed and everything looks great.

Summary: After years of going here, this is one of my staples. I really do look forward to attending here, and maybe the $12.00 isn't too bad this year. It seems the continue to make this a better attraction every year, you can't beat that! The introduction this year with a mad doctor popping green sits seemed weak, better work on a better plot next year. Also would like to see more action on the dark trail, nothing here... And yes, add a dimmer to those return trail lights, they are too bright. Overall rating here is good, a must see haunted attraction. And yes, the food is good too.

Visibility/Location: This place you can see from the interstate, but otherwise if it hadn't been for we probably never would have found it.

Wait Entertainment: When you first go in to pay is hilarious. They have a guy there that pretends to be a little slow, he reminds me of Sloth from the Goonies. After you pay though, there is no music. You have to talk amungst yourselves for entertainment.

Length of Event: It lasted quite a while. You went through a house, then you walked a trail, and lastly one more house. Probably about 30 + minutes.

Actor Performance: The acting performance was okay, but not spectacular. It was very easy to find yourself going from scared to bored within a few minutes.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The Patron Flow could have been better. I realize that this is a big attraction, so they send in bigger groups. It's not the best though, because you find other groups getting scared infront of you and so when you walk up.. nothing happens.

Appropriate Ages: 12 +

Props / Special FX: They did have some pretty cool animatronics. They had this HUGE... I don't even really know what it was, but the creature was creepy. They also had the vortex tunnel, and the let you stay in that for quite a while.

Summary: Torment at 1200 wasn't terrible, but I would definitly say it wasn't great. There was nothing to entertain you while you waited in line except yourselves, not even music. The groups were far too big, that unless you were in the very front, you weren't going to get scared. Some of the actors even looked bored, so then you almost wanted to yawn. I guess what I'm trying to get at, is I feel that the $12 I paid to get in, didn't get me scared at all.
