Visibility/Location: Location was great. It is located in the old rural king building at the mall.

Wait Entertainment: This was good. They had a clown pusing a cart with a loud air horn and a zombie guy that my wife told him he had bad breath when he got in her face. And another person but he didnt do much.

Length of Event: The line was almost out in the mall when we got there so we waited for awhile but once we got in I think it took about 15 to 20 minutes for us to get thru.

Actor Performance: Im 6'8" tall so for me anything that comes from low and gets high is what gets my attention. We were in a glowing mask room that one of the masks went from about 5 foot tall to 6 foot and in my face area that was a little creepy. There was a monster that jump out of some clothes that was laughing like he was on crack. They had a "Jason" that looked like he could have been the real thing and a Mad Doctor that I couldnt tell if his limp was real or fake, then he forced us thru a refridgerator.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The flow was good. We didn't run into any other groups.

Appropriate Ages: They had a few rooms that had lots of bloody guts and gore so I would take kids younger than 12 or 13.

Props / Special FX: Some of the props were very cool. They had a body who's leg moved. A tricycle that moved by itself. Floating masks and clown heads. The forest was awesome! I accidentally touched one of the trees. I think they used real ones. And a floor that moved as you walked on it

Costumes / Make-up: The Zombie in the line had a very cool mask. The clowns make up was creepy and like I said earlier The Jason looked like it was the real thing.

Summary: I thought this haunt was great. I laughed at everyone when they got scared and might have jumped a little in the glowing mask room. My wife is afraid of the dark and anything that may sound like a chainsaw. They had plenty of both. I think they got her 4 or 5 times with some sort of saw thru out the whole thing and then she screamed like a little girl in the dark body bag room each time one of the bags touched her. I would go again but it would have to be with someone else. I dont think my wife would go thru it again.

Visibility/Location: The visibility was very good. The front of the building was lit up and you could see it very well from the highway. It is just off the highway too.

Wait Entertainment: There was a hillbilly that was kind of funny. Didnt care for the crazy patient or clown. I go to haunts to try to be scared and they were not scary at all.

Length of Event: Cant be exactly sure but maybe 20 minutes. It seemed like we were stuck in the maze for quite awhile.

Actor Performance: Some of the actors were visible as we walked in some of the rooms, so that wasnt scary. But other actors seemed to jump out just right. There was a guy in the LAB that I didnt even see until he hit the fence. Another in a box as well

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The flow was good. The only time we ran into another group was while we were in the dark maze.

Appropriate Ages: It wasnt bloody or gorey so it would probably be ok for 10 years old and up.

Props / Special FX: The only props I seen were a few babies and the different tools the doctors were using. They had a room that moved, that was pretty cool.

Costumes / Make-up: The whole building is hospital related so most of the costumes were doctor or nurse types. There was a skeleton out around the ticketbooth that had awesome make up. A few of the crazies did too.

Summary: I either lead of tail when we go to haunted houses. I tailed at this one and usually I will laugh my butt off as the rest of my friends get scared. My friends and I didn't get scared at all at this one. Now Im not saying it isnt scary we just didnt get scared. There was a guy in the maze that was almost as tall as me and he seemed to be at every turn as we got lost thru it, that was starting to get on my nerves in a good way for him I guess. The one thing I did miss in this haunt was the chainsaw. My wife pees her pants when she hears them and I dont recall anyone coming after us with one.
