Visibility/Location: This haunt located behind the school, and there is the twist here - it's not actually the old style school house you see upfront here but a remote one level storage building behind - not as scary ! The lighted road sign isn't too hard to spot, we stumbled over it by accident.

Wait Entertainment: No wait entertainment here at all, we moved into the haunt without much delay.

Length of Event: Maybe 8 minutes here at best at best, nice small event, but no length here at all and not much to expand it here.

Actor Performance: Actors done a fair job at best, nothing too high impact on scares.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The flow was seamless here, but we had nobody else here to crowd into to. There was one group ahead of us (5 minute wait) and one behind us (5 minute wait) with a 8 minute event not crowding here.

Appropriate Ages: I would say any 5 year old and older here, the only impact scare was the chainsaw at the end.

Props / Special FX: The props were standard issue but nice overall, nothing high tech here - no automation here. They used the fog machines and the strobe lights, but nothing more on the effects .

Costumes / Make-up: Mostly masks here, but they were ok. The costumes were average here but with this event it seemed ok.

Summary: This is an average event but has some entertainment value for it's size - the price of $10.00 is too much, I would say $5.00 here at best. (Go get a SPIRIT card and get in for the $5.00 price). This event as stated before has some entertainment value with the props and some of the well dressed rooms, we enjoyed some of the rooms very much and they did a good job with what they had. The parking area isn't too large but for us we had no problem parking or getting out. Overall; nice small attraction and worth a look at, keep the price at $5.00 and it works.
