Visibility/Location: It was found pretty easily since you can see a lot of outside activity from North Ave before you turn on Cornell.

Wait Entertainment: The line was short due to my late arrival on a Thursday night but once inside they did have and "actor" roaming the line messing with people. My wife was trying to use her phone and the creature stood next to her yelling crazy things, it was hilarious.

Length of Event: We got seperated from the group which worked out the best so it was like we were going through on our own and it took about 15-20 min to get through.

Actor Performance: These guys were awesome! I don't know how they could act crazy all night long I would die.... The detail in the costumes and the actual walk was incredible. Since we were on our own they would freak you out with all kind of surprises.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The monstors caused delays which caused us to split from the group of 8 or 10. There were times we were not sure which way to go and the creatures would guide us to the right path.

Appropriate Ages: Not for small kids I would say high school age and up.

Props / Special FX: I can not believe the detail everywhere. The spinning room was awesome it really messed you up. I didn't care for the smoke smell especially in the start of the tour. The props in the butcher area was nasty I guess in a good way...

Costumes / Make-up: Agian great detial was provided in the costumes and make up. It looked like some of the creatures actually shaved their heads to be messed up.

Summary: This place was awesome. I would recommend splitting from the group a bit so that you or your girl "wife" goes through alone. You will get the best scares this way. Favorite rooms were probably the spinning room, mirror strobe light area, the butchers and a room I can't really explain.... In this room, there was about 3 "actors" one chained up with a domination mask, one half man/women and I don't even know what the other guy was.... This room was pretty freaky and the half man/women opend up his bra to show is insides... The end of the buther area was pretty cool as well. There was a lot going on in the room so watch for some unexpected scares. Just when you get through some one jumping in your face someone down below might try to get you... The only thing I really did not like was the smell from the fog mostly in the first part of the tour.
