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.

Visibility/Location: Located just off the square downtown. Several signs to direct you.

Wait Entertainment: We went opening weekend and there was no line.

Length of Event: About 10 minutes

Actor Performance: This was a dissapointment this year. There was very few actors in the house, and most of the ones there were very young.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: This was good. We did not run into the group ahead of us.

Appropriate Ages: All ages

Props / Special FX: Not as many props of special fx as in the past. Alot of dark maze type hallways. The one room that stood out was the locker room with the cheerleaderr and the coach. The coach was good.

Costumes / Make-up: Hard to say because there were so few actors.

Summary: We go every year to this event. The price has raised to $10 a person this year. I was a little dissappointed in the price and lack of actors. I realize it was the first weekend of the season but would have rather waited a weekend if they were not ready to open. We have visited this event every year for the last five years and always enjoyed it before. The old price made it a good small town haunt must see, but the new price makes me feel like I need more. Overall I was left wanting alot more out of this haunt this year
