Visibility/Location: I've been to this one before so I knew where to go. Small signs directing you where to go but hard to see them in the dark.

Wait Entertainment: Had old horror movies playing on a big screen while you waited.

Length of Event: around 20 mins

Actor Performance: the actors in this house did a great job! In particular the clown...we saw him everywhere and he got the 2 guys in my group a couple times! The girl in the straight jacket did a great job too!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: We didn't run into any other groups

Appropriate Ages: 10+

Props / Special FX: great props...some of the rooms are nicely set up and decorated...nice details!

Costumes / Make-up: makeup and costumes were excellent!!!

Summary: Every year I come to this haunted house and every year I leave impressed by them! I wish they could do a little more advertising to get more people out there, because it's an awesome house for a great value! It's only $6 to get in ($5 if you bring a canned good). I would've paid $8 easily to get the enterainment I got there! Watching my dad jump/yell and actually run away from one actor because he was scared...priceless!! The maze is a bit tricky...we had to get help from an actor LOL. This haunt is back on my list for next year! Make sure you don't miss out on it!!

Visibility/Location: easy to find, right off the main road, has a flashing light on the house.

Wait Entertainment: there weren't any actors outside, but they had some music playing

Length of Event: about 15-20 mins

Actor Performance: a little disappointed this year. the costumes and makeup was great, but it lacked with acting. most would just yell/scream at us.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: we didn't run into any other group and the group behind up caught up to us...guess we were going slow??

Appropriate Ages: i'd say 12+. this is usually a pretty high scare house with lots of gore!

Props / Special FX: AMAZING props!! this house does a fantastic job of making each room look great and fits with the theme. The movie/class room was awesome! i was glad to see there was not live animals being used this year tho LOL!

Costumes / Make-up: costumes and makeup were very good. all the costumes fit well with the theme and i don't remember seeing many masks. great job!

Summary: overall, it's a great house to go to! This is one of my yearly haunts I go to and although the acting was a little off when I went through, it was still a great experience. Nice changes this year! I liked how they changed things around with the layout so you don't have to go up and down the same staircase more than once. And the new vortex is a great addition at the end. You can tell a lot of work goes into this house and it pays off! it's a long drive to get out there, but it's well worth it!!
