Visibility/Location: It's really visible from the road. There is a lit sign and the waving man (that thing they blow air through) out front. There are also a lot of lights.

Wait Entertainment: This was ok. Granted, we went on a Sunday night so there really wasn't a need to have a lot of wait entertainment. I was a little bummed that the coffin wasn't open to visitors. The clown that was working the line managed to scare my friend twice while we were waiting. I also liked the bride and groom at the door, very funny!

Length of Event: 20 minutes

Actor Performance: For the most part it was really good. I like the guy in elevator as he managed to scare two of my friends half out of their wits. There were a couple scenes where actors just kind of moved and stared at you. For the most part though, there were in your face.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: I don't like how we weren't able to be our own group, especially since it was a Sunday, but hey we managed to separate ourselves enough.

Appropriate Ages: 13+

Props / Special FX: Dream Reapers is always good with their props and special FX. It is very high tech with a lot of detail.

Costumes / Make-up: I LOVE the detail with some of the costumes. It really fit well with each scene.

Summary: I was at this haunt last year and it was good then. This year it is just as good. I like the enthusiasm that most of the characters have and I find myself staring the amount of detail in this place. I also like how they had the trailer for Paranormal Activity 3 playing in the lobby.  
The only drawback to me is that not all actors seemed fully into it. There were some that just crawled out of a space and stared at you. Overall though, most of the actors seemed very into their roles. They didn't break character once while we were in there. Can I also say that the ONE person who said "Get out of my house" annoyed me! I hate when they say that. 
Overall, I would definitely recommend Dream Reapers. The cast knows what they're doing and the whole house is fantastically decorated.
