| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: Medium | Atmosphere: Good|
Visibility/Location: We were able to find the location relatively easy but they could have posted extra signage up.
Wait Entertainment: Given the time and day of the week that we went on we were able to get into the haunted house almost immediately so the wait time was maybe 5min so we really didn't require any additional entertainment.
Length of Event: 20-30 minutes
Actor Performance: The actors remained in character and were able to be responsive and dynamic when engaging customers in conversation.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: We were not rushed and did not see members from other groups who went before us or after.
Appropriate Ages: 12+
Props / Special FX: They utilized strobe lights, fog, laser, black lights, wall artwork that made you think that there was someone there, labyrinth design, vortex tunnel, outside/inside transition, cages, realistic crypt scenes, more than I can remember
Costumes / Make-up: Sometimes you couldn't tell what they were wearing or what they were supposed to be because of low visibility.
Summary: Overall the place is well thought out and planned and I would recommend anyone to go and give it a try. The place made good use in designing the route inside to throw people off a little And keep you on your toes and keep you thinking as there was a very tight maze and the walls were made to look identical to throw people off. The transition from an outside scene back inside helped keep it fresh and break up the monotony of being stuck inside the entire time and kept you guessing.
