| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: Very High | Atmosphere: Very Good|
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!
