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