Visibility/Location: not hard to find

Wait Entertainment: not the greatest. they had a hillbilly guy that was getting on my nerves.

Length of Event: 15 min.

Actor Performance: some were good

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: we didn't run into any other group so that was good

Appropriate Ages: 9

Props / Special FX: nothing that really stood out to me

Costumes / Make-up: what they had was ok

Summary: I was rather disappointed with this. I know it is a small town, but could have been better. They had a tour guide that walked in front of us half the way and that ruined it for me. Then when he finally left us it was just all a maze. Which was not bad, but there was to much time in the maze. There wasn't many people dressed up. I didn't scream or even jump one time. I think they should have had a little less of the maze and more characters. It would have even been nice if there would have been a character or two jump out while going through the maze.

Visibility/Location: It is a small town,but it was easy to find.

Wait Entertainment: The wait was not long. There were characters outside that made it fun. I would have to say my favorite was called midnight train. He was very funny.

Length of Event: I didn't really time any of them, but I would say probly about 20 minutes for each.

Actor Performance: Most of the actors were very good. There were some young kids and I think they did a good job. They seemed to really get into the spirit of it.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Our group did not run into any other group so that was good. There was some really good things inside the old house that made it interesting.

Appropriate Ages: I would say 12

Props / Special FX: They did not have a lot of high dollar props, but it was still very good. They have taken alot of time into this and that made it well worth it.

Costumes / Make-up: The costumes and make-up were good. Watch out for the midnight train man and the butcher. They like hair.

Summary: We drove about an hour and a half to get there. I was pleased with everything. I had alot of fun. When we first got there I had already laughed so hard from a few of the characters messing with the porta potties. I think they have done a wonderful job. Everybody was very nice. After we were done we went into the little cafe and talked to some of the workers, they were great. The museum was neat. For this being a small town I think it was wonderful and I can't wait to see how they do things next year. I will be looking forward to going back next year.
