| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: Very High | Atmosphere: Very Good|
Visibility/Location: very easy to find.. Im from the area.
Wait Entertainment: A 10! like usual very elaborate makeup and costumes.. Especially the thing with the long beak nose..and clangy long fingers. hair eating guy.. freaky.. kinda gross, but it got the line I was in for the church pumped!and scared!
Length of Event: 1hr. 30 min. for all events and museum
Actor Performance: Overall, okay for the most part.. seen alot of vetrans who do a great job every year. Others however could have taken a few pointers from them.. The little kids seemed kind of lost on the freddy song, and sang the wrong words. so that was kind of a bummer!
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: There was no hayrack ride wait for terror travel..which is always fine with me!!Always love hearing the story as we are riding to attraction! Line for church was long, but that is to be expected for good haunted house attractions. But we did not bump in to any other groups, so timeing was good. loooved that!
Appropriate Ages: Id say 11 or 12 and up
Props / Special FX: Very realistic. they get better every year. loved the museum
Costumes / Make-up: Some of hiders and screamers in mazes could have worn black robes instead of blue jeans, you could see most of the hiders. which was dissappointing. And some could have used more blood
Summary: I love going haunted house hopping every year. And this one is always first on the list. I love how much effort they put in and how they have at least one new attraction each year. That keeps it very interesting. The Slide was awesome! and having to crawl out of unthinkable exits was a great touch. My vote for best attraction- def. House Trail across town. Fav. Actor- The Crazy Bloody Chick swingn the axe at the wall before you go into that little closet telling you to get out! That was genious. and on the outside party of that house was the guy in black that swoope down off that wooden gate. freaked me out. I also got scared real good once n accidently threw my purse at someone! sorry whoever you are!!! Def. come back next year
