Visibility/Location: It was very easy to find, but it's tucked away in a neighborhood. They have a tent up and a very brightly lit sign for parking.

Wait Entertainment: There was not much wait entertainment, they had a clown walking around, but he wasn't interacting much. The music they played was awesome, heavy rock. The wait entertainment wasn't very important since the line was short, but the music gets you amped up before you enter the haunted house.

Length of Event: It was at least 20 minutes, it took a good amount of time to get through it.

Actor Performance: The actors were beyond amazing! Everyone stayed in character and were very scary.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: That's what I like so much about this haunted house, they let a group through and then don't let another group through for a while. 
The group before us caught up to us but I just think that was because they were rushing through it and/or trying to catch up to us. 
Before going into the Haunted the guy behind us was staring at me, then tapped me and asked me how many of us there were and if they could go with us. I said no haha.

Appropriate Ages: 13 +

Props / Special FX: There weren't too many props/special effects. There were your basic strobes & rooms that were decorated but it's the actors that really make this haunted house.

Costumes / Make-up: The costumes and makeup were great! Nice and creepy!

Summary: When first entering the haunted house you watch a really cool video and then get scared as soon as you walk in. A lot of the rooms in the beginning have only props and no actors, which is good in a way because you are always expecting something and more scared that nothing happened.  
The further you get into the haunted house, the more actors you run into. A lot of the actors were hidden well and followed you and scared you multiple times because you never knew where they would come from.  
It's probably the best setting/location of any haunted house I've ever been to. It would already look creepy even if they hadn't decorated it at all. At some point you have to bend over to get through a low tunnel, go down a full case of stairs, up other stairs, even outside and at some point they make you go in pairs for a little while. 
So the second half of the haunted house gets really intense, and there's as many as 3/4 actors in a room with you. They take a lot of time with you to make sure you get scared. A guy with a gas mask was screaming in my face and was so close to me that his mask was touching my face, I didn't mind though. He followed me all the way through the rest of the house and even followed me outside and screamed at me some more, then chased me a bit down the sidewalk. 
It was hands down the best haunted house I've ever been to, the actors are amazing, and I screamed a lot, as well as laughed for screaming :)
