Visibility/Location: very difficult to find unless you knw, but it adds to the effects being in the woods

Wait Entertainment: excellent

Length of Event: too short, seems shorter then 2 years ago

Actor Performance: avaerage but using volenteers, difficult to get them

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: terrible. They had a waiting room skit for every group that took 1-2 minutes, therfore the line was beyond slow. they needed to have 2 rooms running to keep flow moving. Wasted porch area nad first room, could have used these to run 2 skits at once.

Appropriate Ages: yes

Props / Special FX: not many effects, but due to being a volunteer base, they did well. Fridge doors were awesome

Costumes / Make-up: very good

Summary: Management needs to run the flow bettter. House shut down for a break when after we were in line for an hour and still have over half the line to go. They really had plenty of monsters (some had 4-5 per room) that they could have rotated the monsters for breaks. For example doll room had 3 girls, 2 would have been fine, with one on break. swamp room had 6, eays to pull out 1 or two. Monsters outside were great with the crowd. Caskets were cool, but need to be lite to see better. Maze inside worked well.
