Visibility/Location: Easy to get to. If you are coming from the North, be sure to turn into the second entrance on the left. The first entrance is a little early and you will have to drive down a dirt road to get to the actual parking lot.

Wait Entertainment: Great! We barely had a wait to begin with, but they had Night of the Living Dead playing on the TV and 2 clowns running around to scare the customers. They not only entertained us, but get into a zombie debate with us too.

Length of Event: I think it took us about 20-25 minutes to get through, and we slowed ourselves down as much as possible to enjoy everything.

Actor Performance: We found ourselves laughing an awful lot at the actors inside. Not because they weren't scary, but because we were so impressed with them. We all tend to compliment them as we walk through, or joke with them when possible. My mother-in-law told my name to one actor, who then screamed it to the rest of the building. You could hear my name echoing from everyone shouting to me for a good 3-5 minutes. Another actor made a comment about my husband's clothing choice, which came off as hysterical. Maybe our sense of humor is just very closely aligned with the actors... either way, it was very entertaining.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Near the end we had 2 other people catch up to us. Otherwise we didn't see any other customers inside, so it was a very intimate experience. Very well planned.

Summary: We thoroughly enjoyed our experience this year. We have been through the Karnival of Karnage at least 5-6 times since 2008, and it has never disappointed us. Last year was the first time we didn't go, and it was only because we moved far out of the area. A few things are repeats from previous years (such as the train horn and the black tube that makes you crouch down to the floor almost) but it's always in a different order to keep it from getting stale. The line entertainment is great, and the wait was next to nothing.... such a great welcome for 9:30 on a Friday night! Plus the line was in a heated space, so we didn't have to worry about the cold. 
My favorite part of the house has to be the 3D area at the end (beware if you are a glasses wearer: they don't fit well over or under glasses!). We slowed down the most here so we could really look at everything and stumble through the rotating area. 
Great job with EVERYTHING guys!! We'll see you again next year!

Visibility/Location: Visibility was great. had flashing signs telling us which way to go.

Wait Entertainment: clowns were creepy. one had scary eyes that was really freaky. i like the touch with the TV playing old movies in line

Length of Event: took us about 15-20 minutes to go thru.

Actor Performance: i thought actor performance was great. very energetic. the house scene scared me the most I think.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: we never ran into any other groups so it was nice

Appropriate Ages: i'd say 12 and up

Props / Special FX: I really liked how into detail they got. really did a good job with it all. no complaints

Costumes / Make-up: makeup was so awesome. really scared me with the blood and gore i seen.

Summary: I woould strongly recommend seeing this haunt. they did a phenomenal job. can't wait to go again. it is nice to see someone put on a great show and also scare the crap outta me and my family. the clown part at the end was also amazing to see. really great job out there. best haunt so far this year. I went to a few thus far and nobody has been able to scare like these guys did. and it was nice not being in the cold and rain that night. oh I almost forgot about the DJ out front. he played that fox song and had the line entertainment dancing with us. it was such a great time. thank you Karnival of Karnage for giving us a night I will remember for a while.
