| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: Very High | Atmosphere: Very Good|
Visibility/Location: This haunt was very easy to find - they had signs posted on the corners and at the entrace of the park.
Wait Entertainment: They didn't really need any wait entertainment because there were alot of people screaming as they entered and even a few that tried busting the door down to get back out - that was very entertaining. They were really starting to get a long line when we got there.
Length of Event: About 12-15 minutes
Actor Performance: OMG - all the actors were AWESOME!!! They were all in your face from the beginning to the end and very intense -they stayed in character 100% and never backed down once - The red room when you entered and The room with the mice were amazing - the actor in there was soooooooo good (and creepy) and of course the clowns with the chainsaw scared the crap out of us.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: They had the groups spaced perfectly - never ran into any other groups but definitely heard alot of screaming.
Appropriate Ages: They say 13 and up but I think it should be older due to the intensity.
Props / Special FX: The whole theme was an asylum and they played up to their name - TERRIFIC JOB on everything from props, scenes, lighting, the creepy music and the actor performance.
Costumes / Make-up: All the actors costumes and makeup looked very professional.
Summary: OMG...I really don't have words to explain this attraction - AWESOME JOB from beginning to end. The entrance "psych Ward" really creeped you out and the special effect they have in the entrace area is really amazing (I don't want to give it away). Our group was so scared we were screaming all the way though - we did hear while in line that 7 people peed themselves. These guys know what they are doing and it is definitely worth the $10 ticket-i would have paid more. If you don't go to any other haunt this year you definitely have to check out Fear Asylum - 10 THUMBS UP!!!
