| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: High | Atmosphere: Very Good|
Visibility/Location: This is located in a small town between Manito and Havana. There are a few signs within the town itself but its small enough that you can easily locate one of the two locations.
Wait Entertainment: Some of the "monsters" work the crowds to begin the entertainment and prepare you for what waits inside...a good build up with stories about the buildings and potential "real hauntings" that could possibly be seen.
Length of Event: This could easily be an hour or more for all four attractions. Depends on the amount of groups and the time of arrival.
Actor Performance: The actors and actresses do a great job of bringing the fear factor right to you..good story build up for the attractions. The actors/actresses stayed in character. I liked the fact that they carried through to the very end (some customers were running because they were so scared in the Crazy Cage)chasing us and others in the group.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The flow was good. Didn't feel pushed or hurried inside. Things moved well and the timing was good between the groups.
Appropriate Ages: I think 12 and up is appropriate. The house is geared more for the adults than the church.
Props / Special FX: This is a good old fashion scare! No automation or high tech gadgets.These people work for your fear! There are a few people with chainsaws and the crazy chick will catch you off guard!
Costumes / Make-up: Costumes are appropriate for the scenes/locations and make-up/masks were very good.
Summary: This attraction is well worth the money and time to attend. I attended this previous years and they seem to work very hard at keeping things new as well as some traditional characters. We didn't have any problems in the house or church...the mazes were sometimes confusing but the gouls/monsters worked the scene to move you in the right direction. The night was cold and we were able to get some hot drinks and they have a variety of food with reasonable prices. Again we enjoyed the vist. The paranormal group was interesting and gave information about their findings in the house as well.
