Visibility/Location: I thought the location for this haunted house was good. Was easy to find. As soon as you get in to macon there are markers to show you were to go. Which is nice if you dont know your way around macon. Parking was not a problem at all. There was a lot of near by parking so I did not have to walk far.

Wait Entertainment: The waiting time was very short, and they had several workers out and about working the crowd.

Length of Event: about 20 min

Actor Performance: The actors did really well. The kitchen room had some really amazing actors in it as well as the guy out front dressed as a little old man. It seemed to me that all of the actors were really putting there all into their performance. The guy in the forset-jungle type room was great. He made it seem so real.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The group i was with did not run into any other groups inside. I think they did a good job spacing us out.

Appropriate Ages: 10 and up

Props / Special FX: Over all I thought all of the props were really good and nicely place within. All of the sceens are so different no two of them were alike. I thought that the way the actor's were placed in the sceen's and which actor's were in what sceen was planned out nicely.

Costumes / Make-up: The customes were great, and they had so many different creatures, and monsters. The make up was also nicely done. Im not sure how old the guy or kid was that was wearing the old man costume, but with his make-up on it seemed so relistic. I think who ever did his make-up really pulled it off. I thought that all of the make-up and and costumes went togheter really well.

Summary: Over all I was very pleased with the performance the the haunted house put on. It seemed as if they put a lot of effort into it. I thought that everyone that was working including the kids there did a really good job. It was worth the seven dollar ticket price, I think they could have charged more and I would of been happy to pay it for the scare factor that i got. I think at first I did not expect it to be as great as what it was just becouse of the fact that I had not heard a whole lot about it. But boy was I wrong. I look forward to seeing if they are going to do another one next year. It was worth the drive to macon.

Visibility/Location: The Location was great the mall is really easy to find

Wait Entertainment: At the time I was there there was no entertainment that I seen. My wait was not long at all

Length of Event: 15min

Actor Performance: over all this year I was not pleased with the performance of the actors I head a lot of profanity as i was making my way from one room to the next with my 13 year old daughter. There were a few good ones the few that were in the grave yard room did a okay job and so did the ladies at the ticket stand. Those are the only ones that stood out to me and made me feel as if they were acting there parts

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The group I was in had three people in it and we ran in to another group after just a few min and not long after that a couple that came in after us caught up with us

Appropriate Ages: It says 12 but becouse of the profanity that my daughter and I over heard i would say 16 or 17

Props / Special FX: The props were okay i just feel like i have seen all of them year after year for about the past five years or so there were a few new ones but not a lot

Costumes / Make-up: They had a lot of make-up and costumes.

Summary: I was really disappointed with the haunted house this year. I go to this one evey year but after this year im not sure if I will go next year at all. I had my 13 year old daughter with me as well as one other person as was very disappointed with all of the profanity that i was over hearing from the crew. I expected more out of the crew than that. The first few year that I went they had a really good haunted house. But last year and this year it seems as if something has changed. The scream guys was nice but he is there every year. I didnt really notice anything differnt with their costumes or anything that stood out as new I fell as if they are the same ones I have been looking at over the past few year. They added a craw space this year that was nice but the maze was a let down. There were a lot of actors jumping and screaming, but not a lot of acting. Towards the end I think we caught a couple of the guys of gaurd when were were coming through becouse we seen two people texting on cell phones. That took away from the scare appeal. I really hope they can get there acts together. For me it was a big let down becouse I hold them to a higher stander becouse of the fact that they have been doing it for so long. I do not think that it was worth the cover charge that I paid for me the scare appeal was not there this year
