| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: Very High | Atmosphere: Very Good|
Visibility/Location: Although you might not immediately see where the haunt is held, it is very easy to find, right across the street from the casino. Parking is always available. The night we attended, there were actors on the street corner attracting visitors.
Wait Entertainment: We were lucky to buy our tickets and enter immediately, but there were many actors lurking about to entertain. They are very well made up and stay in character completely.
Length of Event: I think it might have taken us 20 - 30 minutes to go through the event.
Actor Performance: The actors are very convincing and you will not see the same costume twice. They do a wonderful job, both inside and outside the house.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: We never came in contact with another group, and no one caught up with us. We took our time to enjoy the frights and the actors never pushed us forward.
Appropriate Ages: 13 and up
Props / Special FX: I am always amazed at the number and variety of props and special effects. The owners do a great job with a variety of props and special effects that appeal to all five senses.
Costumes / Make-up: The costumes and make-up are all professionally done.
Summary: We have attended this house for years, and always try to go twice per season. The price is affordable and the event is well worth it. This haunted house will always be one of our favorites.
