Review

Signage / Visibility / Location

A little hard to find w/construction, but once we went on the main road we found it... need more directional signage (that is lit) in front of the Train Museum (where the entrance is closed due to construction)... we missed the directional signs there because it was too dark.

Wait Area / Line Entertainment

Line ent. in the ticket line and wait for the train was VERY GOOD - the line actors really get in your face and know how to scare! Lots of different ghouls working the lines... it was fun to watch! There was NO line entainment in the line between the train and the house... and that was the longest line... could have done alot here since it's in the woods and dark... line entertainment here would rock.

Length

The wait between the train and the house was long... so we wished the house was a bit longer. If you count the house AND the train - it was worth it... the train makes it rock and makes it UNIQUE!

Actors' Performance

Good, but the strong blowing on the back of the head into my hair was weird... I don't care to get any cooties (germs) from the ghouls! Wished more were interactive... many just stood there. The ones who were interactive (did a strange purring/grownling thing) were EXCELLENT. Would have been more scary if more were interactive instead of just staring. The music/dancing schtick at the outside/front was cool (my favorite music) BUT having the guys in leather dancing is a bit unusual in a "Blue Oyster Club kinda way" (if you know what I mean.) People around us were joking about it.

Appropriate For

10+

Summary

Overall one of the best I've seen this year! Loved the train! Costumes rocked... sets were THE BEST I'VE EVER SEEN!!!! The actors that were interactive were excellent.

Honest and constructive criticism: More actors need to be more interactive... several just stood there and we saw 2 talking to other actors as we walked by. The LINES: waiting in 3 lines was a bit much... 3 lines: one for tickets (which did move well), one for the train (moved ok) and one for the house (took forever). The waiting would not have been so bad if the line between the train and the house had line entertainment with live actors (maybe having ghouls abduct a 'planted guest' in the lines?)... and of course ghouls scaring line guests Lastly, the parking needed to be more organized - it was parking lot anarchy. The attendant basically told us that there was none, and that we shuold try another night?!?! (but we were from out of town, and that wasn't an option as we were anxious to see this house!). As the attendant told us this we saw an area about 100 feet behind him not being used that could easliy park 40 cars if it was organized better.
