Visibility/Location: Located down the street from their other haunted infirmary attraction, same location as last year. This can be somewhat difficult to locate unless you know where the infirmary is located ...

Wait Entertainment: There were a few monsters walking the lines and attracting attention, it worked good and everyone stayed on character ...

Length of Event: After entering the woods the attraction rounds out around 20 minutes, longer trail this year .

Actor Performance: All actors stayed on their mark and done a complete job at scaring and entertaining the crowds . Never saw anyone break character and most of the actors were pumped for the event ..

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The lines move on their own pace but we never ran into another group until the backtracking (more information later) and then no other issues until the final exit ..

Appropriate Ages: 8 years and below might have issues with this, also considerable walking is required ..

Props / Special FX: The props are somewhat weaved throughout the trail (as normal with a trail event) .. There aren't any type of automation props and this event could use them in various spots, but they keep it simple here ..

Costumes / Make-up: Costumes and make up was very well done, as any event there could be actors who put more into their characters but it is what it is... The costumes worked ok and seemed to stay within the surroundings theme you were coming in to..

Summary: After attending this event last year there was no way of avoiding it this year, it was much improved over last year and last year was great ... The trail increased in length and deleived much improved scares and challenges. This is a deep woods event and requires some walking and hill climbing, consider this before you attend but I absolutely loved the challenge - great job ! The only issue was the backtracking down a steep hill when another group was approaching, there was an overhead bridge which would have avoided this meeting but they claim the owners would allow this (probably safety issues) though .. This year they cut the actual graveyard tour and it was much better without it, nothing occurred there anyway .., overall, these people have a hit here and looking forward to our return next year ..

Visibility/Location: They need to make it more visible. We weren't sure it was there until we were right up on it. Like more signs pointing the way to it. They definitely had a lot of lights once you knew where it was.

Wait Entertainment: Hilarious doctor with an ax. He was legit funny, not scripted. He was playing off stuff we said.

Length of Event: almost half an hour.

Actor Performance: There weren't too many but I liked the ones I saw. The puffy person with the hair, I loved. the little girl voice girl was good too.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: We heard other people in the woods and another group crossed at a crossing point ahead of us, but that was planned.

Appropriate Ages: 10+

Props / Special FX: The woods themselves are great props. I liked the use of the pallets and the laser lights. But the giant tent freaked me out. I was authentically nervous going down/through it. Loved the bridge area too! 

Costumes / Make-up: Puffy guy was great. The rest average but it was so dark, I couldn't really tell.

Summary: This was fun. I love haunted trails and this one was long. However, the terrain is ROUGH. If you are unsteady, I would not suggest this one. There any many places that are uneven and hard to navigate.  
There weren't a lot of actors but the ones there got into their roles and I liked that. A guy in our group who NEVER gets startled actually let out a yell in one place. Nice work by the actor jumping down onto the table.  
I would do this one again. I would like to see more scares in the woods though. More actors. The scenes were pretty great and just walking through the woods in the dark is fun!
