|Scare Factor: Medium | Atmosphere: Good|
Visibility/Location: Near the downtown square, so very easy to find. Their signs should have been a little easier to see, as they were rather small, but not impossible.
Wait Entertainment: Very good wait entertainment! The zombie bride did an excellent job of staying active with the people in line and keeping everyone entertained. I did not see the "Binkie" character that has been written about so much, but the bride was very effective and fun!
Length of Event: 15-20 minutes. Good length.
Actor Performance: The masked actors who did not speak were the most effective, as the actors with make-up and "scenes" were not scary. Most of the face actors would yell their lines at you so incoherently that you couldn't understand what they were saying to you.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Smooth flow throughout the attraction. We got close to getting bunched up a few times, but one of the ghouls would stand in front of us to slow us down.
Appropriate Ages: Junior high age and up
Props / Special FX: Very limited in any significant props or special effects. Mainly just had people jumping out from around hidden corners.
Costumes / Make-up: Very good costumes & make-up
Summary: I was a little underwhelmed by this event this year. They didn't have what I would call "rooms", but the entire attraction was more simlar to a series of hallways with very small attractions. Outside entertainment was lots of fun! The storyline, while definitely compelling, had nothing at all to do with the attraction, so they may want to either drop any storyline next year or at least make the attraction somewhat related to the story. The actors were OK, but needed more direction. The best actor was the "haunted" referee! Lots of different directions that you could go with that character next year, but he was great! However...I did have a bit of a problem with one of the actors. The actor said that he was a mermaid (which had nothing to do with his costume), was hanging from the ceiling and said some REALLY inappropriate things to our group that had nothing to do with the attraction. If they are going to populate their attraction with high school-age actors, they might benefit from having an adult occasionally walk through the event to make sure that all of the actors are staying in character and sticking to their storyline. Overall, an average attraction, but with a few minor changes, has the potential to be really good!
