Visibility/Location: Dark Shadows is fairly easy to find and the elaborate yard display is apparent from about a block away.

Wait Entertainment: This is a home haunt and the yard is filled with props and animatronics.

Length of Event: This depends on how long you look around. The actual walkthrough huant takes about a minute.

Actor Performance: The actors were well hidden in the haunt and merely had jump out scares. Still it was decent.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: There wasn't any really since you go through in the group you come in and they wait for you to come out.

Appropriate Ages: All ages

Props / Special FX: Very good for a home haunt!

Costumes / Make-up: Not too much makeup and costumes as most of it is props and animatronics,

Summary: I don't normally frequent home haunts but this one caught my eye and was a nice family thing to do on a Saturday night. I really enjoyed the whole thing and the amount of stuff and details crammed into the small yard is incredible. They had flashing lights to a sound track which makes it look like a thunderstorm over the cemetery scene in the yard. There was a really cool looking skeleton which props itself forward lunging at you while spraying a mist! Overall a very cool setup and a good time!
