Visibility/Location: Fairly easy to find, some signs along the main road would be good but the lights outside helped.

Wait Entertainment: A couple of ghouls hanging out, creepy guy with a tazer was cool and it was great that everyone even the lady taking money had a costume on..everyone was in character

Length of Event: 20-25mins I was surprised it was this long great job!

Actor Performance: Everyone seemed to be on point and really having a great time scaring. Guy crawling out from under table was awsome.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: only caught up with one group in maze but they did a great job spliting us up again before letting us move on.

Appropriate Ages: 10+ depending on your kid..

Props / Special FX: AMAZING! Props on the props...There was stuff everywhere and it seemed like a real house. great job using everyday stuff and making it look creepy!- New vortex is great as well

Costumes / Make-up: They did a great job on makeup and very few masks--i really like that better and not everyone was the same so it was nice to be surprised on what was coming next.

Summary: Have been to this house several times over the last 5 years and every year they get better. This is is no different and they have gone way over the top. you can tell they have spent alot of time and attention to detail and getting everything just so. The work with their actors shows (saw in paper where they had training days) because they were definatly on point with their scares most of the time. What makes this different that most is that there is so much to look at that you are busy checking it all out and forgetting to try and figure out where they are going to come at you from and by the time you remember it's too late and they are all over you. It's amazing out much it really looks like a real house and using a theme is so much harder than just throwing together what ever designs you come up with. Great job and I think I could even go again at the end of the month with more friends.

Visibility/Location: Easy to find with signs and lights plenty of parking

Wait Entertainment: Did not see anyone outside except some monsters on break having cigs

Length of Event: decent 15-20 mins

Actor Performance: They need help. Lots of younger actors, not knowing what they were suppose to do and someone needs to tell the guy in the swamp that popping up and saying "HI" is not scary. That and I don't appricate being told to "GET OUT!"

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: never found another group but it was slow

Appropriate Ages: 8+

Props / Special FX: The double vortex is good but scares me to have steps afterwards and the airbag hallway is good but almost too tight

Costumes / Make-up: nothing special. basic masks and bad makeup jobs with walmart make up

Summary: overall I thought that the last two years were much better than this year. The overall house was much too bright way to many lights and that took away from the possible scares. You can tell this is a low budget house as most of their props and decorations are basic and overall kind of cheesy. Their actors need help learning out to work their rooms and that roar and boo are totally wrong in a good haunted house. I know they get lots of business because of their location but there are definatly better houses in the area to spend your money on.
