Visibility/Location: Coming from a hour north, we used our phone's GPS and it got us there perfectly. There were signs pointed to the house as well!

Wait Entertainment: We did not have to wait in line very long because we purchased our tickets online, however we were approached by multiple "characters" even in our short wait. They were both entertaining by holding conversations and they were scary, too! There was also a group picture of us taken beforehand!

Length of Event: My group of friends and I chose the "burried alive" VIP package. The house was about 45 minutes to walk through and had 3 different "parts". Not too long - but long enough to really get into it!

Actor Performance: The actors were always in character!! From the second you walk into the haunted house, you are greeted until when you leave (they were outside of the door.) They improvised well when needed and interacted with all of us. There were a few characters who were funny, too!! The had very detailed costumes and were acrobatic as well (on walls, staircases, etc.)

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The flow of the haunted house was very well organized. A group of friends went a few days before us and took a different route than we had. (There must be different scare rooms to get more people through.) At one point, I spent too much time in one room and one of the characters told me, "Run to your friends or you'll miss everything!" in a spooky voice - & she was right!! They kept us entertained the entire time. Never a moment where I was bored or thought, "when will this be over...?"

Appropriate Ages: I would say this is a great haunted house for those who are 16+ due to the nature of a few rooms - especially the 'hospital' part. It was too scary for small children.

Props / Special FX: The entire haunted hospital part was 3D which was a great added feature. Also, the 'burried alive' portion was well planned. Even though it was really scary - you had the feeling that it was still 'safe' to be a part of.

Summary: Driving a hour for this haunted house was totally worth it! Greeted right away by characters outside of the house/in line and getting our picture taken by a very enthusiastic girl really set the mood well before we were even in the house being scared! The special effects and surprises in the house set it apart from others. The 3D Hospital, the Burried Alive part, the interactive mazes, special effect 'grounds', movies, etc. The staff was very 'interactive' and personable (which added to the scare)! They would give you direction on where to go and really 'talk' to you instead of just coming around the corner yelling. The detail of the house was incredible. The paintings, specific structures, props - all very unique and well constructed. If someone is looking for a theatrical haunted house that is scary and worth the price - it is this one! We were even thanked for coming/driving a hour to get there after we finished the tour during our chat with one of the house's employees. Awesome time - really enjoyed it. A+!
