Visibility/Location: Not too hard to find with GPS - located outside of Rochester .. Marked from the roadside, lighted sign and visual .

Wait Entertainment: No wait entertainment tonight - no crowd in lines tonight may have been the reason for this.

Length of Event: Maybe 20 minutes here

Actor Performance: Actors done a very good job .

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: We actually ran into another group ahead of us, with tonight's low attendance this shouldn't have happened. We waited for the group to move forward, but doing this caused another group to back form behind our group, need some work with this.

Appropriate Ages: I would say 10 years and above shouldn't have any issues here.

Props / Special FX: Lots of great props here, some new items and some of the old style from years past.

Costumes / Make-up: Costumes and make up was spotless here, every year they do a great job with this.

Summary: This is a rough year here, with a new location which claimed to be larger and yet we never noticed this - it seemed to be less. The new location just didn't live up to the hype, hopefully they will return to the past location or a much better one. 
The design of the layout was good, started off very good but lost steam as it progressed. Liked the props (new) which were added through other haunted house liquidation sales, the wine room and the clown maze room, both very well done and enjoyable. The ending was weak afterward through, nothing to really give you a punch effect ! It just seemed this year this attraction didn't live up to the past years. The entry through the woods never really served a purpose and there wasn't anything in there to give off any horror effects of jars .. 
Hope to see much better assembly next year.

Visibility/Location: Very well lit. Had no trouble finding this event. Their location was perfect. Parking attendants showed the way to each parking spot.

Wait Entertainment: A haunted trail led to the waiting area. This was so good that we thought it was part of the main event. The waiting area was highly decorated and patrons were kept entertained with multiple large screened visual performances. It was inside and clean. Very pleasant wait time.

Length of Event: Maybe 20+ minutes.

Actor Performance: Actors were all really good and enthusiastic. They never broke from character.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Patron flow was superb. Not once did we see other patrons during the main event. Very importantly, we were not told to bunch up with other people to hurry us through. Too many events have not been enjoyed as they could have been, because we were forced to join with strangers. Strangers who were often unruly and/or obnoxious.

Appropriate Ages: Twelve and up.

Props / Special FX: Not enough can be said about their props and special effects. They were over the top.

Costumes / Make-up: Very impressed with the variety and quality of characters, costumes and make-up.

Summary: By far, this was the best haunted attraction we attended this year. We attended 14 haunts this year, including the big three in St. Louis, and we enjoyed this haunt the most. We highly recommend this event to anyone. This haunt is put on by people who obviously care about creating a great production. If you like quality, travel a little further and have a great evening! Oh and by the way, there were no endless, mindless, hallways.
