| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: Medium | Atmosphere: Average|
Visibility/Location: The location has been the same since it started 9 years ago. It isn't hard to find located at Three Sisters Park.
Wait Entertainment: Lots of monsters walking around, some in character and some not.
Length of Event: The haunted house is around 15 minutes, the trail is around 15 minutes, and the hayrack ride maybe 15-20 minutes, but not all scare here.
Actor Performance: The actors are fair at best, needs some work here - lots of young children which isn't too scary.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The flow on all attractions moved along very well, no bottleneck except in the haunted house maze.
Appropriate Ages: Young people will be able to handle this haunted attraction, I would say 8 years old would have no problem here.
Props / Special FX: The props are a problem here, everything is dated. The hayrack ride props are the same old stuff year after year and lots of props no longer work - very weak here! The trail is better, but again for what they take it, it should have more automation and more going for it here. The haunted house is the main event here, most of the actors work here. The house has been put together good, but year after year the same stuff starts looking old, would like to see a better and redesigned haunted house.
Costumes / Make-up: Standard masks and costumes here, nothing new.
Summary: Overall this haunted attraction needs some major work, as stated before, everything looks old and used. This attraction draws good and should invest more money in updating the the props and automation effects. The hayrack ride is the worst by far with no real actors anymore and most of the props no longer work at all, you see motors and squirt hoses which no longer work. The trail has lots of potential but stays the same year after year, a few tweaks here and there but just nothing to stand out. The haunted house is fair and is interesting, but needs a facelift - same thing year after year. Overall this event might be good for someone new or someone who attends it every 6 years, but year to year people will lose interest here fast. This years $5.00 discount on wristbands was a good deal and keep the price for all events at $15.00. The hot air balloon was again a no show, last year and then again this year with no balloon, it's time to square with the customers that this isn't going to happen so people won't be false lead.
