Visibility/Location: Signs from main road pointed you to fairgrounds.

Wait Entertainment: Not much, had a few just walking past the line. Not a lot of interaction.

Length of Event: 10-15min

Actor Performance: Great! They did a wonderful job of interacting with patrons.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Good, we were with a guide for the first half. A group of 9 was able to go all together.

Appropriate Ages: 7 on up

Props / Special FX: Good, had a few illusion type props that were cool.

Costumes / Make-up: Good, actors never got up in my face for me to really notice details.

Summary: This was an out door haunt. You wait in line till you get up to the fire pit. A bigger group is able to go all at once. You are then led by a guide who gives you a background story of the ghosts. Then another guide in costume takes you through a grave yard & stops your group to watch the illusions. Then your group is on their own. Actors did a great job of not only scaring, but interacting with patrons. The trails were lit up enough that we were able to see the scenes.

Visibility/Location: Located at the old fairgrounds, not hard to find with GPS ... Somewhat difficult to spot signs from the roadway at night, could use better markers.

Wait Entertainment: No waiting entertainment while we were there, however the usually provide some..

Length of Event: I would say around 15 minutes once we entered the trail ..

Actor Performance: The actors here always do a fantastic job and stay on character, lots of people working the event also ...

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The flow throughout the trail was acceptable and moved along at pace, we did however run into another group while waiting on the last scare.

Appropriate Ages: I would say anyone above 10 years old should be ok, however there is some light in your face scares.

Props / Special FX: There is some nice homemade props throughout the trail, nothing really high tech anymore and everything basic with the surroundings but it worked ok.

Costumes / Make-up: The costumes and make up was spot on, no cheap masks .. Everything looked good and played to the zombie theme well..

Summary: This attraction use to be held in an old funeral home surrounding with technical projections and dacor, this new event is completely different and more of the standard haunted trail. There mark with any resemblance to the old days is gone, so the tech aspects are attempted somewhat here but lacking the impact - it doesn't work .. The overall trail through the graveyard is however enjoyable and should be given a chance.. We quickly noticed that the triggering of the scares are out of balance here, the front of the line gets the impact while the rear looks really don't feel included in the scare.. This issue would be resolved by triggering in the middle of the line rather than the front but this is only their second year and maybe they have some tweeking to do with the actors .. Nice enjoyable experience !
