Visibility/Location: When approaching the entrance to the turn off road they only had one flame lamp to mark the way. Once on the road to the haunt it was difficult to navigate. Because it was dark with no other lights. Way at the end of the road finally we seen a man with a glow in the dark parking vest with a flash light. Once parked it was confusing as to where to go. It was a creepy area in the woods but no clear directions to go to pay. A few people were walking area the parking lot and lake. Finally we stumbled on the area to pay. It was a building with snacks for sale. Once we paid we went about 30 feet to the opening of the haunt. It was not ready yet, start time was to be 7:00. It was 7:25 the actors were not ready. Finally were allowed to go in. A group of two went first we were told to wait for the signal then we were allowed to go after 15 min. of waiting. It is a self guided tour.

Wait Entertainment: We waited in line for 15 minutes there was no line haunts. The line was not very long about 10 people.

Length of Event: The event lasted about 10 - 15 minutes

Actor Performance: All actors were semi enthusiastic. They used monotones voices when they did there speaking parts. Mainly kids were the actors. The actors missed the mark several time. They had a dog actor that was the only over acting. The best actor was the ring girl she did the best job of being creepy.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Self guided, we ran into the group in from of us about 3/4 of the way through.

Appropriate Ages: 8 and up

Props / Special FX: They used a smog machine in one room. strobe lights, fake body parts and lots of hanging black plastic.

Costumes / Make-up: Make-up several run of the mill movie mask

Summary: Basically, they started late and could have utilized the woods more allowing the dark creepiness of the atmosphere to display it self. It would be worth 5 - 7 dollars. the actors needed to be more excited and watch when to do there haunt. Mistimed haunts is bad. Plenty of dead space where no haunts were. The maze was to long with no haunts in them. Loud noise bangs in almost every room. Some broke character and were talking. The maze which they had several, were at times to light. You could see the tops of the wood. And finally no background music or sound effects.
