| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: Medium | Atmosphere: Good|
Visibility/Location: Somewhat hard to find on the outskirts of Lewistown, but once your here you will remember next year. Need some bigger road signs next year, to get more attention.
Wait Entertainment: Not designed for wait entertainment. Lots of things for young kids to do while older people do the hayrack ride to the main haunted trail. Everything works good here, no problems.
Length of Event: The kid trail walk maybe 20 minutes around and the main haunted trail uphill maybe 20 minutes..
Actor Performance: All the monsters on the haunted trail (main) done a great job, everything went off exactly as set up and everybody stayed on cue.. (impressed me with this being the first year) and the kids trail was nice and enjoyable for the young. (well lite and monsters not scary here, a good job)
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: No real heavy crowd this year (first year) but they have the space and the format here to handle a very large crowd. The flow around the kids trail is seamless and no problems could ever cause a flow problem.. The hayrack ride up the hill to the main haunted trail can control the flow and therefore no problem here either. Everything moved along great.
Appropriate Ages: All ages work here, the older trail maybe 8 years old..
Props / Special FX: Lots of good props on the main trail, no high priced stuff here but it's fun. The kids trail is setup with inflation pumpkins and lots of color lights, nice. Not designed for special effects.
Costumes / Make-up: The consumes and make-up was very good, didn't see any problems here. Now this isn't high priced costumes, but they work here.
Summary: This being the first year we wasn't expecting nothing, but wrong! These people done a great job, making it a family haunted attraction. The hayrack ride up the hill was good and the lighted stick man (yes stick man) was original and very well done. The haunted clowns done a great job and was one of my favorites here. As for the younger groups trail I walked it and too was very enjoyable (no scares) with lots of games, food, and prizes. The younger kids really enjoyed this attraction, and myself included. Note that both of these trails are paved, yes blacktop trails so rain will not mess-up this event. The kids trail open and well lite by generator lights and the haunted trail through the dark woods up the hill, doesn't get any better here. The only weak part here has to be the parking, there isn't a lot of room for parking and this someday might be a problem. Overall rating on this event is very enjoyable and yes (for fun) we'll stop by next year.
