| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: Medium | Atmosphere: Fair|
Visibility/Location: This event was somewhat hard to find even with the signs the had posted, small print on white cards, hard to see at night. We noticed the flashing strobe and lighted faceplate of the event from down the hill, hidden up on the hill.
Wait Entertainment: Nothing here to speak of.. We didn't notice much waiting entertainment if any, but we had little wait.
Length of Event: Maybe 10 to 12 minutes.
Actor Performance: For the first year these guys done a fair job, too many young kids here.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Everything moved along good, but no real crowd test here.
Appropriate Ages: 8 years old should have no problem here, younger kids might enjoy - no in your face scare here.
Props / Special FX: For the first year we have standard props, nothing that stands out. Strobe lights, color lights, and basic sets.
Costumes / Make-up: Everything I noticed was masks, no make up to speak of. The costumes was standard, but this is the first run here.
Summary: This being the first year and with a limited budget the fire fighters done a fair job. I think they need a better location and a larger house, just wasn't that impressed here - the large lighted faceplate monster was nice. The event seemed a little costly to me $7.00 for a first run haunted house is high and the bang-for-the-buck just seemed weak here, maybe $5.00.. The kid games just weakened the scare factor here, coming out of a haunted house and in the backyard of kids toss-and-throw game just doesn't make it.. The have some good people here and a great idea, but this event needs some tweeking. Hope to see something next year with more punch behind it..
