| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: High | Atmosphere: Very Good|
Visibility/Location: Statesville Prison, what better location could you get! Easy to find, well marked and lite, however use your GPS when in doubt ..
Wait Entertainment: They always have excelled here with the actors and the waiting line crew has always gave 100% throughout the years. They have one of the best build up of any haunted event you'll attend, there is continued pressure of building up your expectation before you get to the entry ..
Length of Event: I would say around 20 minutes after entering the attraction, could use a little more time here, this is a large building and it seems some could be used here..
Actor Performance: The actors excell here every year, they have usually always been right on the mark here and this year was perfection ! It seems that everyone was on their best tonight - no weak actors !
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The flow was acceptable and we really encountered no issues, there are various events which slow down or literally stop the action throughout - but it's correctable and everything gets back in timing usually fairly quickly - tonight no exception, the slowed down encounter another group coming up on us and simply advanced to the next staged area, the timing is workable here !
Appropriate Ages: There are major in your face scares here and for the first this year recommend at least 11 or 12 years old, the actors effort bring this high recommendation!
Props / Special FX: The props throughout Statesville are exceptional and very well done, however they are getting dated by yearly returners - it might be a good idea to move into a higher tech attraction with more automation and effects !
Costumes / Make-up: The costumes and makeup was very well done, we noticed nothing weak here..
Summary: Statesville Prison has always been a hit and miss attraction, and for a higher priced event that usually isn't a good thing ..
This year might have been the best experience yet, everything was working as expected and the event staff was well stocked and the acting was absolutely perfect - no doubt the best I've seen at Statesville .. As stated above my only complaint, if you can call it that, is the length - it needs to utilize more of the structure (this actually means the event is good enough that it would be nice to experience more length) ..
Overall a great event and recommended highly .
