| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: High | Atmosphere: Very Good|
Visibility/Location: We have been there before, but there are signs on the highway directing you. There are two haunted houses in Auburn located within walking distance from each other
Wait Entertainment: They give you numbers and call your group over a loud speaker. So you can wait by the fire or walk around. They had a few ghouls walking around but no real line.
Length of Event: Approx. 20 minutes
Actor Performance: Great performances. Everyone stayed in character. Some had actual speaking parts and others just scares.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: They do a great job keeping everyone spaced out. We never ran into another group.
Appropriate Ages: We saw a couple younger kids try to go through but came back out. Maybe 12 and up.
Props / Special FX: They had great details in each room. Some stand outs were the wine cellar with the moving racks and the room with the girl "forked" to the table.
Costumes / Make-up: Costumes and make-up all matched the theme and had good detail. The girl with her arms "forked" to the table was the best. I thought they were fake arms until I saw her fingers move!
Summary: Auburn always has their act together. They have a great system of giving groups numbers so they dont have to stand in line and wait. The people at the door are great. They took our cell number so we could go eat supper down the street, and called us when they were getting close to our number. We went early but ened up waiting about two hours to get in. They also told us all the things that they do with their proceeds. They do alot for their community with their proceeds. I would however suggest gettting there early for your tickets. Alos, They change things a little each weekend so it is never the same. It is a great haunted house. We have been going for the past couples years and it has become a must see for our group every year.
