Visibility/Location: The location was quite visible and easily found.

Wait Entertainment: There was no real wait entertainment and there was quite a long wait to get in. The people in line were left to mingle amongst and entertain themselves.

Length of Event: 30-40 min roughly

Actor Performance: The actors were quite good. They were always there in unexpected situations.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The flow inside this attraction was pretty bad. We were constantly waiting for the group in front of us to go ahead. This caused several props to be either already sprung or be ruined by us standing near them waiting for them. The group behind us was also constantly running into us. Several actors had to break character to figure out what the hold up in front of us was about.

Appropriate Ages: 10+

Props / Special FX: This haunted house relied heavily on mechanical props. They were quite good although a lot of the flow problems caused them to be already sprung by the time we got up to them.

Costumes / Make-up: The costumes and make up were really good at the beginning, but especially in the end they were really cheesy.

Summary: This haunted house was good, but the flow problems are definitely a huge problem. It relies a little too heavily on mechanical props for my taste, although real actors are mixed in and you think they are props. I would suggest going earlier or at the least busy times. Also it is less professional than a lot of haunted houses where there are people, not actors, who walk in front of you to hand water bottles to the actors. Overall, you walk in and there are a variety of different rooms from clowns, the devil, graveyard scenes, a romantic lounge, various doctors rooms. Beware, there are many actors just waiting to jump out at you.
