| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: Very High | Atmosphere: Very Good|
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.
