Visibility/Location: Dream Reapers is very visible from North Avenue, and when you know where you're going, it's even easier to find. It isn't hard to get to at all, it's very accessible.

Wait Entertainment: Wait entertainment was entertaining, to say the least. They had these two twin boy and girl characters outside with really creepy masks on. They were awesome and really knew how to creep everyone out. They had a bloody mental patient/zombie outside too. He was obnoxious and really funny, he had no boundaries when it came to humor.

Length of Event: The actual house without wait was about 15-20 minutes.

Actor Performance: The actors were really high energy in some parts of the house. The zombies ranged from slow moving to fast paced and violent, which was awesome. They also had a really disorientating mirror room with some weird characters in it. I remember seeing one clown in the house, as well as some really creepy pig-headed butchers in the slaughterhouse. Actors were amazing, even better then last year.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: I never ran into a group, granted it was a rather slow night too. So groups were pretty well spaced apart. I've never ran into a group at Dream Reapers before, but I've always gone early in the month.

Appropriate Ages: 15+

Props / Special FX: The sets haven't changed much since last year. But that doesn't mean they still aren't as detailed, because they are! The bodies in the slaughterhouse always seem to creep me out.

Costumes / Make-up: As always, amazing detail when it came to costumes. Their detailed costumes like the suits and dresses the zombies wore and the amazing makeup on all the actors is always perfect. I came last year when the trolls were out, I was hoping I'd see them again this year. They have creative and amazing costumes! Guess I'll have to come again later on!

Summary: Dream Reapers always has a great way of being a smaller haunted house, but extremely professional. You go to a lot of haunted attractions that are smaller, and you never see this level of detail and intensity. Dream Reapers does a great job of kicking butt every year, and I hope they keep it up!
