Visibility/Location: Getting to the haunt can be difficult if you don't know the area or if you don't have GPS. At the intersection of 76 and 173 there was one sign near the ground that pointed the way. As we drove down they did have a big lighted sign by the entrance. There's was enough parking and it was free.

Wait Entertainment: Entertainment was the perfect balance. They had great music playing, a mixture of movie themes and rock songs. They had the door man who was hilarious and interacted with the groups and the actors inside. But hands down the best part was a type of clown that I never seen before, He was AMAZING! Scared the all of us and then disappeared. Just perfect!!!!

Length of Event: 5 mins

Actor Performance: The actor performance was definitely on Par. Never saw anyone out of character and they were very intense and aggressive.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Never ran to any other groups, even though there was a line, never seen another group.

Appropriate Ages: 15+ due to the aggressive and violent scenes

Props / Special FX: Scene detail was simple but effective. Each room had a particular theme and all decor belonged in each room where it made you feel like you were in a different atmosphere. No animatronics or fog machines. Which i do feel if there was fog it would have added to the element of the haunt.

Costumes / Make-up: Ok,these guys are good at this. Makeup and costumes were on point. the Clowns, The big guy with the axe, everything was great.

Summary: This place is now on my favorites list. I loved the whole thing. I like the fact that there was barely enough time to breath before BAM!! out of no where here comes another actor. From that first clown with the orange hair, which you need to see to believe. This house started out strong and finished strong. Time and time again I see haunted house have a great beginning and lose steam as you go through, not this one. This place does have great potential. The only things that I had an issue with was that I feel it could have been darker on the inside, the clown house was easy to figure out on how to escape and the length of the haunt, I do wish it was longer. If you think the price is a little steep for the length, don't think that, the experience alone made up for that.
