Visibility/Location: Raven's Grin Inn is easy to find in a small town. The GPS is off, but just go down the street and you are there.

Wait Entertainment: Wait entertainment consists of the owners personal art that is everywhere around the front of the house. Not very exciting, but interesting if you are into that sort of thing.

Length of Event: Event length is 1.5 - 2 hours.

Actor Performance: There are no "actors" just a tour guide. The tour guide seemed knowledgeable of the story of Raven's Grin.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The flow is good. I would suggest smaller groups of 3-5 instead of my tour of 8. The hallways are narrow and the person at the back of the line doesn't get the full experience.

Appropriate Ages: All ages

Props / Special FX: Many props that are cheesy, but funny as they are intended to be. There is a lot to see and you will not see everything on your first tour.

Costumes / Make-up: N/A

Summary: Raven's Grin Inn is not meant to scare you, but interest you in a man's 20+ year commitment to art and home "improvement." Legend has it, the house is truly haunted by 37 ghosts, but I have not seen any. I have toured Raven's Grin about 5 times and notice something different every time. This time I decided to go earlier in the day at 14:00 and am glad I did. When going through during the daylight, you can really see some of the detail the owner has put into the house and his art. I suggest on your first tour, you go at night. My favorite room is the bedroom slide, it's a lot of fun. The Nazi Barbies are funny as well.
