Visibility/Location: With GPS, it's very easy to find. Even without it, it'd be pretty easy to find.

Wait Entertainment: Wait entertainment was okay. They had around 2-3 costumed individuals walking through the lines. Outside, they had a few wrecked cars and an individual that ate fire.

Length of Event: 2 hours. Mainly due to the multiple lines and bumping in to other groups ahead.

Actor Performance: Actor performance was okay. One of the actors was joking around with the group right behind me and wasn't in character.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Patron flow was pretty bad. The group behind caught up pretty quick and we had caught up to the group ahead. Once inside, there were two other spots where they had lines formed that those that bought VIP couldn't skip ahead of.

Appropriate Ages: 18+ due to adult themes

Props / Special FX: Best special effects was the one area that you had to use 3D glasses in. That was pretty cool. The rest of the props/special FX were not so good.

Costumes / Make-up: Costumes were pretty good and so was the make-up. They did a pretty good job with that.

Summary: If you're wanting to be scared, I'd avoid going to this haunted house. I found myself laughing and I wasn't even frightened once. I had high expectations considering that the cost of the tickets were $30 each, parking was $5, and that this has Rob Zombie's name attached to it. My favorite area was the room where you had to wear 3D glasses. I liked it because they did such an awesome job with making it look really cool. Even in this area though, I never once got scared or jumped. I can understand if this was a small, neighborhood haunted house put on at a church or something, but with Rob Zombie's name attached to it, I expected a lot more.
