Visibility/Location: Nice entrance with some huge skulls lining the entrance. However the actual sign for the attraction is only visible if you are coming from the west side.

Wait Entertainment: Music playing , people in costumes, a fire and concession stand. Glow sticks for sale.

Length of Event: about 20 mins

Actor Performance: Very good. The people in the woods were excellent and so were the chainsaw guys.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Wagons were a lil crowded and uncomfortable.

Appropriate Ages: yes

Props / Special FX: The wagons are pulled by an old hearse which are very cool. The props in the woods were good however the most scenes were someone getting electrocuted? Why so many electrocutions in the woods?? Weird choice.

Costumes / Make-up: good

Summary: We drove 50 miles and it was fun. The outdoor wait was interesting and fun. The actual hay ride could use the addition of more actors and more props. The real scary was driving in the woods in the dark. I wish the ride had been longer. There was a small amount of confusion because there is another attraction 1/4 from this one and we were confused when we tried to locate this attraction. The sign needs to be visible from both east and west Peoria road. Overall the attraction was good for the price.
