Visibility/Location: I've gone here for the past few years. Pretty easy to find. They have signs pointing the way, once you are in the town.

Wait Entertainment: They had some cool looking roaming things and a nice fire, like always. We also took a trip to a nearby drinking establishment that had a couple good shot specials. Easy to do because of their number calling system and you don't have to wait in line.

Length of Event: Too short! Because they put on such a good show, I always want it to be longer. About 12 mins, I'd say.

Actor Performance: Excellent!!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: GOOD!

Appropriate Ages: small ones would get too scared.

Props / Special FX: They have some great rooms and ideas.

Costumes / Make-up: Very good! The face in the cave!!

Summary: Auburn is always one of my favorite haunted houses. We go every year and drive two hours to get there. It's well worth the trip and you can't beat their $8.00 admission price. You get your money's worth! I was voted leader of our group of five and I had a hard time making myself enter some rooms. They also did a great job of scaring all of us and not just the first couple. Loved the cramped rooms and getting shut in. The actors really get into their parts!! We zipped through one room accidentally and didn't get to see what she was doing/saying, but that was our fault. I always like this one and they didn't disappoint this year!

Visibility/Location: Easy to find in the business district of Auburn. Sign pointed the way off of the main road.

Wait Entertainment: A couple of ghouls walking around. One character stood out, a steampunk crow. Nice outfit!!!!

Length of Event: About 10 minutes.

Actor Performance: All actors kept in character through the house.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Auburn always does a great job in this department. You rarely hear another group and you NEVER see another group until you are out of the house.

Appropriate Ages: 13 and up. This is a more "in your face" haunt and can seem a little scary for kids. It scares most adults!

Props / Special FX: Always a great job on props. Backwoods area was the best. Small meat locker looking area, and of course the carnival area was really great to look at and experience!

Costumes / Make-up: A nice mix. Majority of the characters were in nice hideous make-up.

Summary: Overall this house always does a great job. Auburn always has the patrons go through small confined saces where you are just inches from the actors. I love this house just for that fact. Very uncomforatble when you are just inches from the person yelling and scaring the crap out of you. Te man going over the rules right inside the door always sets the tone, no costume, but don't expect any small chit chat with him because he does not talk. He just stands there after the rules and is completely quite! Over the last couple of years Auburn seems to swith room around to make a new haunt. This year we did notice some of the sames areas so would like to see a change overall of walking through the haunt. Nice job as always guys!
