Visibility/Location: Even though it's right of 125, we barely saw it. More signage would be nice, especially leading up to the place. There was plenty of parking though.

Wait Entertainment: There were not any actors around while we waited, however there was a bonfire to stand around.

Length of Event: Part of the event is kind of at your own pace, which was nice. It took about 20-30 minutes.

Actor Performance: Almost everyone was enthusiastic. My favorite was the school teacher! She was just great!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: We ended up running into another group ahead of us, which meant that timing wise we didn't get to see some of the scares.

Appropriate Ages: 6+

Props / Special FX: I really liked the litte graveyard walk. I like that real jack o'lanterns where used and loved the tombstones.

Costumes / Make-up: It seemed like some actors had makeup and others didn't. More elaborate costumes would be good for next year.

Summary: From what I've been told this is the first year that this event has been open. It has kind of a family atmosphere and there are even kid actors. It is the cheapest event in the area and is definitely worth the money! You get a haunted hay-rack ride, graveyard walk, and haunted house all for one price! There was also a place to buy food and drink. As this event becomes more popular though, there will definitely need to be a definitive waiting area or numbered tickets for the ride. We couldn't figure out where to line up to get on the hay-rack ride and had to ask someone. There's a kind of go-at-your-own pace after you get off of the ride, which is very nice, however flow in the haunted house needs to be more controlled so that groups do not run into one another. I would definitely come back next year though! Especially, if the price stays the same!

Visibility/Location: This venue is right off of the town square so easily accessible and easy to find.

Wait Entertainment: There were not any characters walking around, however there was a vendor selling drinks and snacks and two bonfires, which was nice.

Length of Event: The length of the even was great. I felt like I got my money's worth.

Actor Performance: Most of the actors where great! I especially liked the actor in the room with the handcuffs. Although, there seemed to be a lot of actors who just screamed at you and there's a point where screaming goes from scary to annoying.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The flow was just right. We were not rushed nor did we run into any other groups.

Appropriate Ages: I would say 13+ due to the gore in some areas.

Props / Special FX: The best special effect is the man who tries to shoot the beer can off of the woman's head. It is so real looking and freaky!

Costumes / Make-up: Costumes are great, however, most of the actors had the standard makeup and it would be nice to see more masks and or prosthetics.

Summary: This is the only haunted house that actually scared me! I like the effects and the characters. The flow is great. The special FX were great! My favorite was the man who shot the beer can off of the woman's head! It totally creeped me out! Also, I'm not sure what was supposed to happen with the electric chair, but when I sat in it I felt the static electricity and immediately jumped up! I'm not sure if that was supposed to happen, but it was kind of scary! The only thing that I could say negatively was that there was no recognizable theme. I attended last year and there seemed to be more of a story line involved. Oterwise I had a great time!
