Visibility/Location: There were some sings to help, and parking cops to help point the way. The driveway didnt look like we should have driven in, but its ok.  

Wait Entertainment: None, but no one was in line...

Length of Event: 15 maybe 20 minutes

Actor Performance: The Hellivator Operator rocked. The other actors seemed new and just screamed a lot... they tried

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: it was awesome, because we were the only people in the haunted house

Appropriate Ages: 8 or 9 should be fine

Props / Special FX: Some of the fx and props were very cool... the 'shovel lady' was cool as h--e--double-hockey-sticks (censored) the Pop out props were poorly timed some of the rooms were decorated pretty well, others lacked

Costumes / Make-up: Poor.. just some white make up and fake blood and messy hair...

Summary: this haunt was not all it was cracked up to be. though i did jump at points is was more because i was startled and less out of fear. It was the first year for this house, so maybe they can get timing right next year and have more actors in the haunt. there were sets with no one in them...  
 
there were some pretty cool props in this haunt. i think with more people and a little more time this could be a good haunt. Id give it some time. 
 
i'm glad i only paid 10 dollars though.  
 
It was kind of sad to see how many people were not there... hopefully they will get more patrons as Halloween draws closer.  
 
they did have a super cool pumpkin carver there, making super cool giant pumpkins in to very cool faces...

Visibility/Location: Its right off of Villa Ave just half a block North of Rt 83. They had it very well lit, and it was very easy to find.

Wait Entertainment: They were really good. At one point one of the zombies started to do Thriller when it came on over the speakers. The line entertainment was also very good about sneeking up on you when you were not paying attention

Length of Event: It took us about 20-25 min to get through it, we were walking pretty slow though

Actor Performance: The actors were great, never broke character at all. I was very impressed. And they definitely knew how to sniff out the scaredy cats

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: They did a really good job of this too. they had "waits" that didn't even feel like you waited cuz there was so much to see...

Appropriate Ages: Id say a brave 13 year old could make it through, but I probably wouldn't go any younger.

Props / Special FX: OMG these were amazing. The timing was great and they really did make the room. This haunted house as so many FX to offer, you really need to take your time to enjoy all that they have to offer

Costumes / Make-up: The make up was very well done... i didn't see too many lame faces with just blood on them... it made you believe the zombies were zombies and the vamps where vampz

Summary: I was only able to attend three houses this year, and this one was by far the best. You could tell they took great care in each room. The detail in each room really helped make the scare.  
 
They had some really great rooms where in other hands it could have gone very very wrong, however they played it up so well.  
 
WARNING there was one room where i thought i was going to throw up. Just the thought of what they were doing and uggghhh eating, made my stomach turn.  
 
The ending of this haunt definitely does not leave you wanting for anything. Horror, gore, scares, comedy... they had it all.  
 
Again you really need to take your time in this haunt, it is very worth it.
