Visibility/Location: Easy to find - they had quite a few signs into the park and good directions on the website.

Wait Entertainment: They had some music playing in the line. My friends and I heard a ton of people screaming inside and outside. We were scared to death.

Length of Event: About 10-15 minutes.

Actor Performance: These actors were the best I have seen at any haunted house. They chased you, breathed down your neck, got in your face and everything. All of them were in character and we thought the scene with the mice was creepy as heck. Good performance by everyone.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: We kind of ran into another group only because as we were entering a scene 3 people were being escorted out. We were told by them later that that were too scared and couldn't go any farther. Other than that we didn't run into anyone accept ourselves.

Appropriate Ages: 13 and up

Props / Special FX: This was definitely medical themed which was great they carried it through the whole haunt until you got outside when you enter the carnival. All the props and scenes were very well done and they had alot of cool effects as well.

Costumes / Make-up: OMG!!! The zombie doctor was amazing - his mask creeped us out so bad - we liked the different effects they used from full costumes to some of the guys in no shirts. Great job!

Summary: This is the ONE haunt you have to check out this year. We came last year and there is no comparison - this year is absolutly fantastic. We heard alot of good reviews about it so we decided to check it out and were not let down one bit. They had a concession area and the guy at the gate kept us amused while we were waiting. The entrance door had psych ward written on it so that kind of set the whole theme and it was NUTS!!! You guys definitely deserve 1st place- from the doctors, the crazy mouse guy the girl with all the blood in the first scene and of course the clowns with chainsaws - there is nothing more to ask for. YOU GUYS GET MY VOTE 10 TIMES AND MORE!

Visibility/Location: This haunt was very easy to find - they had signs posted on the corners and at the entrace of the park.

Wait Entertainment: They didn't really need any wait entertainment because there were alot of people screaming as they entered and even a few that tried busting the door down to get back out - that was very entertaining. They were really starting to get a long line when we got there.

Length of Event: About 12-15 minutes

Actor Performance: OMG - all the actors were AWESOME!!! They were all in your face from the beginning to the end and very intense -they stayed in character 100% and never backed down once - The red room when you entered and The room with the mice were amazing - the actor in there was soooooooo good (and creepy) and of course the clowns with the chainsaw scared the crap out of us.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: They had the groups spaced perfectly - never ran into any other groups but definitely heard alot of screaming.

Appropriate Ages: They say 13 and up but I think it should be older due to the intensity.

Props / Special FX: The whole theme was an asylum and they played up to their name - TERRIFIC JOB on everything from props, scenes, lighting, the creepy music and the actor performance.

Costumes / Make-up: All the actors costumes and makeup looked very professional.

Summary: OMG...I really don't have words to explain this attraction - AWESOME JOB from beginning to end. The entrance "psych Ward" really creeped you out and the special effect they have in the entrace area is really amazing (I don't want to give it away). Our group was so scared we were screaming all the way though - we did hear while in line that 7 people peed themselves. These guys know what they are doing and it is definitely worth the $10 ticket-i would have paid more. If you don't go to any other haunt this year you definitely have to check out Fear Asylum - 10 THUMBS UP!!!
