Visibility/Location: The building was very easy to find. There were a lot of signs, it would be very hard not to find it. It's an old kinda run down looking building which gives it a scary atmosphere right away. It's located pretty much on the riverfront and was very easy to get too.

Wait Entertainment: On the way to the building there were people with chainsaws chasing you in the parking lot. My group didn't have to wait very long, but they had an indoor waiting area and some of the actors would come out to scare the customers waiting. There was one creepy actor who would ride a tricycle through the waiting area to scare the waiters. Overall the wait entertainment was good and built the suspense up.

Length of Event: 20-30 minutes

Actor Performance: The Actors did a good job. Some got right up in your face like in the cemetery where you run into a bunch of tormenting clowns or this shadow man in another room who you couldn't see until he was right in your face yelling. other actors just played the intimidating roll and followed you around giving you an on edge feeling.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The flow was good. There were a lot of maze area's in this haunted house so our group was moving slow. We didn't run into another group the whole way through, so none of the scares were given away.

Appropriate Ages: 10 and up

Props / Special FX: There were a lot of props in this haunted house. They used pop up heads and creatures, they had pull down windows on the walls that catch you off guard, horns and flashing lights. There was a lot to look at.

Costumes / Make-up: I didn't see any make up on anybody. Most of the actors were wearing masks. There were some cool costumes on a few of the characters in the well lit rooms and in the dark area's people were wearing black outfits.

Summary: You start out walking through a cemetery where you are headed off by a group of crazy characters who antagonize you. you run into a few shockers in the cemetery before you get away and enter the maze. The maze is long and dark, you come across actors who come out of nowhere. You then begin to enter different themed rooms. There's room with a jack in the box and a man in a black suit which works as camouflage, a room with a lot of doors and a surprise behind each. This area of the house has a lot of out of nowhere scares from pop ups and other special effects as well as the actors who get in your face. Even when you exit the house your still not safe because the other actors will follow you out of the house and chase you through the parking lot. overall I think this haunted house was very cool and well worth it to have visited.

Visibility/Location: on main ave. some signs, good parking both sides of building

Wait Entertainment: short wait 20 ahead of us. clowns and saw character on tricycle in wait area.

Length of Event: 35 min.

Actor Performance: Graveyard actors were good, many from hides in mazes were spooky.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Moved well some stopped at crawl space with air cannon.

Appropriate Ages: 10 up

Props / Special FX: Locked casket was good. wolf attach was a real good haunt, semi was LOUD & pitch black, electric chair was good.

Costumes / Make-up: No makeup but lots of good masks and some costumes.

Summary: The graveyard started out quiet, Davey Jones and the boys coming out from under the stones was good. The spider area was accented with egg sacks and partial eaten meals, but we left with screams as actors chased us out thru the caskets filled with spooks and zombies. Mazes were placed well apart and the scares and actors kept groups separated. 
We liked the rising zombie , almost too close for comfort. Lots of pop ups and creatures in the walls in all areas. The final jail room sent us running out thru the exit only to be met in the parking lot with chainsaw slashing clowns and parking lot ghouls.
