|Scare Factor: Very Low | Atmosphere: Poor|
Visibility/Location: Very easy to find. There was a sign by the parking lot and a lot of people hanging out and a halloween-ish car in the lot.
Wait Entertainment: Walking in there was a young kid -- probably 8-10 years old -- in a jigsaw mask with a chainsaw. Waiting in line there was a high school boy in a clown costume with a chainsaw and 2 high school aged zombies. They broke character way too often and talked to the people in line way too much -- especially the clown kid. We waited in line for 2 hours. There should be better entertainment.
Length of Event: 2 hour wait for 10 minutes in the haunted house.
Actor Performance: There were very few actors actually in the haunted house. A couple of them did pretty well setting the mood for the house. Most didn't really do anything. I was confused by that. There were very few actual scares at all.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: We were taking our time (and still only took 10 minutes) and the group behind us caught up to us a few times.
Appropriate Ages: The ticket says 6+. I'd have to agree.
Props / Special FX: The rooms were too well lit in general. I could see everything all the time which isn't a good thing. the first room you go in is a huge room with 4 zombies and they don't do a good job of scaring or creeping you out. At one point there is a huge zig zagging portion with nothing but sheets hanging from the ceiling. A good minute worth of walking through nothing but sheets and no scares. There is a crawl space with no scare. There is a "claustrophobic" room that was nothing but squeezing through a tight space.
Costumes / Make-up: Make up and costumes were really weak. The zombies weren't elaborate at all -- just white face paint.
Summary: Needless to say I was let down by the whole thing. For $8 I don't expect much but there are better haunted houses out there for $8. There was an option to get a group photo for $5 and skip the line. I'm torn on whether or not we should have done it. It's a cheap way to skip the line but at the same time I wouldn't want to pay any more money for the haunted house. There were a lot of food vendors outside which was cool. There was also an option to do a tour of a warehouse that was supposedly haunted. I would recommend this haunted house only to those who have small children and don't want them to get that scared.
