Visibility/Location: It was a little difficult to locate. You do not realize you are there until you are right up on it, and the entrance is easy to miss.

Wait Entertainment: Purchased a speed pass, so no wait pass. But did notice several people, lurking around, scaring unsuspecting patrons.

Length of Event: Approximately 20-25 mins

Actor Performance: Great. VERY in character for each setting. Make up was awesome, costume as well.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Smooth

Appropriate Ages: Over 10

Props / Special FX: Great! This was highly thought out and each room was themed. A lot of "dark" spots which I like, it blended nicely with the theme rooms. Because you never know what lurks in the dark.

Costumes / Make-up: AWESOME!

Summary: A definite! Well worth the money, even if you bump up to speed pass price. There is a lot of "live" scares throughout the entire setting which makes the level of scare much more real. From the entrance to the exit, the ambience is just ominous, which is a must in this type of setting. You never know what lurks around anywhere. A lot of crawling and a few tight spaces, but that makes it even more worthwhile. You NEVER know what was around each corner. Sometimes NOTHING but total dark...but YOU never know what lurks in the dark. Buhahahahha 
I highly recommend!

Visibility/Location: Signs on corner & at location. Attendant direction in to a very bad parking lot. No one directed us to park, making the lot full due to people taking up too much space.

Wait Entertainment: Movie on a big screen to view while in an indoor line. A few actors walked a round a few times. We got their before the big crowd came in. However their was a 1/2 stand still & we were not given a reason even when asked.

Length of Event: 20 - 30 min. Lots of twist & turns. they did a great job of utilized the space they had. You would walk past a scene, then after a few turns you were walking through the scene.

Actor Performance: I felt this was the factor thatgave this attraction a lower scare factor. Actors over played the "statue" act. Had several females wait for me to walk past to scream right in my ear. I find that more annoying than scary. I did notice a lot of kids in the scenes. Timing was off when they would on pop out of walls. I was very impressed by one scene that involved a mad scientist playing with some ones guts.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Unfortunately, we caught up to the group before us & the group behind us. I belive this was due to the dark maze. It was entertaining, Actors appearing & pointing us in the wrong direction several times, so we were lost for quite a while.

Appropriate Ages: 7 and up.

Props / Special FX: The props for the different scenes were excellent! They took a lot of time to detail each scene. That may have also caused us to walk a little slower, there was a lot to look out.

Costumes / Make-up: A few actors had some real cool make up. All costumes fit the scenes.

Summary: This event was ok. However, I came out a little annoyed instead of laughing from being scared. I feel they had did great in scene decore & using space. But Actor performance needs some work. 
I liked the shock factor of the mad scientist. add a few other scenes that cause patrons to walk away shocked & this event would be great.
