Visibility/Location: Very easy to find. Parking lot well lit.

Wait Entertainment: There were about 3 charaters. Going between two long lines of waiting people. The man with the chainsaw did well, the clown with the baseball bat was fine. But the 3rd person was just wearing black street clothes and rubber clown make and didn't do anything but walk back and forth staring at the crowds.

Length of Event: Over an hour, including wait time.

Actor Performance: Very low. Out of all the people they had only two gave me a good scare.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Flows good. While in the barns we never met up with another group.

Appropriate Ages: 10+

Props / Special FX: Good props. The best areas were the pirate ship area and plane crash scene.

Costumes / Make-up: Very low. No effort was put into costume designs at all. Over half the charaters wore street clothes with rips and a little blood or just wore all black with a mask. Very dissapointing.

Summary: Although nightmare on fairgrounds road has some neatly decorated rooms and good props they really lack on the intensity of the actors they have. They are all a bunch teenagers that seem to be more worried about socializing with fellow high schoolers then scaring the crowd comin thru. They have very few workers wearing actual costumes most are just wearing street clothes with fake blood smeared on them or just wearing black head to toe with a walmart mask. The top 5 best things they do have is the chainsaw guy. The electric chair guy and the 3D room with spinning vortex. The pirate ship and the plane crash scene.
