Visibility/Location: Somewhat out in the middle of nowhere, same location for the last 3 years. Roadsign marking the event, GPS brings you right to it ..

Wait Entertainment: Lots to notice, very good surroundings loaded with props .. Various monsters walking around the lines (and there is waiting here) and everyone done to perfection .. Early walking trail before entering covered structure to enter the attraction .. While waiting inside there are multiple projectors displaying interesting material and various videos, laser lights, automated creatures above and interesting dacor ..

Length of Event: Trail lasts maybe 10 minutes and haunted house around 15 to 20 minutes ...

Actor Performance: Every character was right on the mark and done a fabulous job, no weak links tonight ..

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The flow through the trail was exceptional considering the large crowd tonight, the was another group of kids who rushed past us but it wasn't distracting from the trail.. The haunted house flow was also very good, however we did run into a group of stranglers - but we just stopped and allowed them to move on at there own speed - no issues .

Appropriate Ages: This attraction does have some light in your face actors, so age would depend on your tolerance for this kinda scare .. I would suggest 10 years or older, but tonight's crowd was basically teenagers and young adults ..

Props / Special FX: Lots of high quality props and a considerable amount of animation, lighting effects and some CGI effects - nicely done and very professional..

Costumes / Make-up: The costumes and makeup was done to perfection, no cheap masks here, they have always excelled at makeup...

Summary: We usually attend this event yearly and have since it begun years and years ago, there's a reason - they always bring there A game ! This event attracts large numbers of supporters and there's a reason, it's a great haunt ! The price is good and the bang for the buck is well worth it! We usually go with the speed pass (recommended highly) because otherwise your in line for over an hour between the trail and the haunted house, however this year we waited the lines, interesting surroundings you usually pass by with a speed pass, next year back to the speed pass ..  
Overall the attraction is excellent and highly recommended ! They actually have this as a standing haunted house so it's decor gets lightly tweaked yearly with several new additions, so yearly you have a changes throughout .. Definately worth the trip to experience it !

Visibility/Location: the boo crew haunt was very well advertized and very easy to find ,they have excelent parking with security  

Wait Entertainment: oh my gosh the waiting entertainment blew our minds VERY VERY VERY creepy ,excelent deformed character AND a clown lol yes a clown funny at times nothing out of line but i sure would not want to run into the character that creeped along the ground then stood quietly behind you like i said omg!!!!! 

Length of Event: the path area was above and beyond with very detailed sections airplane,car crash scene cemetary scene and plenty more that i closed my eyes and hung on to my husbands shirt ugh!!! it took about 10 to 15 minutes on awesome path which was by the EVIL DEEDS CREW AND BOO CREW CHARACTERS they ALL were eery  

Actor Performance: there was plenty of actors jist when you thought you were safe there some thing was creeping up on you both on path and inside the bldging my favorite in the house was the kitcen scene with the forks stabbed into top of characters hands eeewwwww!!!!!! the path area had this eery character sloooowly circle and call out in an awesome whisper your name oooohhh good grief and the zombies were on pathy with plenty of surprise spots  

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: every one moved through smoothly it was hard though with all the surprise elements 

Appropriate Ages: absolutly both areas had something for all ages annnd when little ones came thru the ghouls were very calm and thoughtful with little ones 

Props / Special FX: they were spaced out perfect going thru the path area buttt u still would have a surprise come out of the woods towards you(real woods)very very real like we loved it  

Costumes / Make-up: they sure made a beleaver out of us lol u had to look very close trying to see if there was a human being under all that both areas were above and beyond all the way to their toes 

Summary: we absolutly adore this haunt they ALWAYS deliver the antisapation the excitement and the safety for their patrons and yet the boo crew and evil deeds no what to do to deliver a haunt you go away saying WOW THE WAS AWESOME AND TOTALLY EXCITING ,we will be back next yr,and if you want interaction with ghouls well honey this is the place 
i do not know how they get all the detail done ,the lighting ,the wonderfull group of people to help pull this off,the make up,costumes, sounds, darness with looong tunneles that gives you the suspense to guess if you should forward or run like heck the other way and if you should happen to not know which way to go welll something is always glad to help you find a way (sure right)lol,i cant say enough about the commitment to this creepy entertaining event . please please give them a try if you are able ican promise you you WILL NOT be dissapointed
