Visibility/Location: The location is Very visable, Its in the basement of a church!

Wait Entertainment: Entertainment in the line was good, but the best part is your inside, It was drizzling when we arrived, so thats a major plus!

Length of Event: I would say the length was about average. I wasnt looking at my watch but it felt like 15-20 minutes, Not too long, or too short. The good thing is there was no dead spots(no pun intended) haha,

Actor Performance: Actor performance, you could see that some actors are better the otheres, But there all teenagers, This is a Non-for profit haunted house, but even with that, I was entertained.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: I got there early on a friday so it wasnt backed up at all, we never ran into any othere groups, plus its in the basement of a church, if there were no actors in here this place would still be scary!

Appropriate Ages: This place is appropriate for most people, but I wouldnt bring young kids here, Id say 6-7 and up.

Props / Special FX: Id say the props and affects were above average, for the price of admission,

Costumes / Make-up: Most of the custumes were masks, but there were a few really scary actors that had make-up you could tell took there time and loved what they did,

Summary: I enjoyed it very much, Sometimes you feel like cattle when you go through a haunted house, but not here. I only ended up spending like $20 dollars for me and my family! I couldnt see a movie for that much. I talked to one of the security guards for a bit, I didnt know this was a non-profit organization. It goes to the school and helps pay the teachers salery. I know this is going to sound weird but the people here are really nice, so I didnt feel bad bring my kid, If you tell a actor he's being too intrusive they would back off. Over all I liked it and will definetly be back next year.
