Visibility/Location: In a great location and very easy to get to. Always enough room to park! The parking fee is also very reasonable!

Wait Entertainment: We loved the guy in the wheel chair he was hilarious! In previous years he used to ride in with us attached to the bumper! The other monster that we loved was the guy with the metal plates on his knees. He did a great job scaring my son while we waited in line.

Length of Event: The length is acceptable however the fun can be taken out if you are in the back as the majority of the screams happen up front. Since everyone cannot be up front, it may take the scare factor out for some.

Actor Performance: The actors were spectacular. The actor that stood out the most was "Skully" when he slid down the bones infront of me I swear, I almost tinkled on my self!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: As some stand in line wondering who will go into the coffin, my husband is usually the one that goes in. Some think its creepy. But it is a great conversation starter. The effect of all the power going out while your in line is awesome. It provides enough entertainment while you are waiting and doesnt make the wait seem so long. It should happen more often or have multipe sound effects like people screaming or a chain saw running.

Appropriate Ages: We have been coming every year for the past 7 years! My son was 9 when he first went and loved it. And now looks forward to coming with us each year!

Props / Special FX: Each year Dream Reapers out does themselves and is not afraid to try something new! The things this year that stood out was Skully sliding down infront of me, the alien in the spinning room, and all the actors who jumped out to scare us!

Costumes / Make-up: There was alot of detail put into every room, prop or actor to make each room come alive. Well done

Summary: Overall each year we walk away talking about your haunted house. Some years compare it to others. We have found it is because of the actors at your haunted house who put the fun in freakin out people! This is what honestly brings us back each year. It is never a dull moment. The only thing I could suggest would be to have smaller groups of people so everyone has the oppurtunity to be scared in the beginning. If that is not an option, suggest that some parts are exactly the same but somehow split to where half go one way and half go another. I am not sure if the people behind me got the oppurtunity to see skully slide down the boned wall or not but it sure suprised me enough to write about it!
