| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: High | Atmosphere: Very Good|
Visibility/Location: Since it is a haunted house, it is tucked back into a horseshoe type street that winds around to the parking area which is marked with lighted signs, arrows, and a parking attendant with a light. Then there was just a short walk up to the actual haunt. There were lighted barrels upon the roof which were flashing and added a great touch to this haunted house!
Wait Entertainment: There was no wait at this time, but there was a covered area under which to wait if there would have been a line which was great! There were also TV's showing video in the wait area. If needed they did offer a fast pass for an extra $3.
Length of Event: I was told at the entrance that it could take from 15 min to 30 min to go thru the haunt, depending on how quickly we moved or found our way. It was somewhere in the neighborhood of 18 minutes for us to go thru.
Actor Performance: Actors were great! They were all doing their jobs, in the right places and frankly scared us quite a lot!
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Flow was not a problem at all. You could move at your own pace and find your way thru.
Appropriate Ages: The scare factor was high enough that I don't think a lot of 5-8 yr olds would be OK with it, but for those older it is worth it.
Props / Special FX: There was a good variety of props, illusions, 3-D effect, and some pneumatics. Some were old school type but mixed in with new technology which works.
Costumes / Make-up: Everyone in the haunt had costumes appropriate to that scene and the makeup looked very professional. There were very few actual masks and they were not the cheap kind. It was sometimes hard to tell the difference between a mask and makeup!
Summary: All in all it was well worth the $15 admission. We had a great time! The haunt itself was well done and there were people gathered around the fire pit where we sat and enjoyed ourselves. There was also a food stand where we could get something to snack on and get a drink. Overall it was a fun time and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening! I would definitely recommend the Haunted Hideaway to friends and family.
