Visibility/Location: A littel hard to find. Once you see the casino it is right across the bridge in the basement of the Irish Pub and restaurant.

Wait Entertainment: The line actors are incredible. They all are in silicone masks. The fish guy actually was in the fountin and came out of it when he was scaring the line costumers. They also have two stilt walkers. The actors and costumes looked like the stepped right out of a movir

Length of Event: About 12 to 15 minutes

Actor Performance: The doctor/victim scene was very real and high energy. The kitchen had another silicone mask (pig mask). The guy wearing it was very large and intimidating. The girl victims at the end were also very believable.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: I did not run into or have another group run into my group.

Appropriate Ages: I would say 13 years or older.

Props / Special FX: It seemed like they had something going on in every room.The one I like best was a dragon like head that came out of a cave.

Costumes / Make-up: The costumes and make were done very well and matched the room they were in. The doctor at the end was dressed in this stem punk looking head dress that was very sinister looking.

Summary: Basement of the Dead ia a haut that plays on all different types of fears. It is very dark in some places, gory in some places, and even very bright and loud in others. The characters also folow suit with the differnt types of fears. They have vampiers, doctors, zombies, inbreds, and everyone's favorite clowns to name a few. The actors are very high energy and look very believable in the costumes, make-up, and or mask that they are wearing. They do this all very well. From the time you get there to the time you leave, the actors outside and inside the haunt will keep you very entertained. This one is a great one to go see.
