Signage / Visibility / Location
Directions to the house are a somewhat hard to see, one has to be very observant to make sure they don't miss them.
Wait Area / Line Entertainment
I've attended this event nearly every year for the past 6 years, and the wait usually has excellent entertainment, with monsters interacting with the customers, a back story being told to pump up the crowd. This year the line was set up different, you would purchase a group ticket then wait in a tent area until your number was called. Horror movies were shown on a large screen in the tent, but there were no monsters interacting with the crowd.
It seemed to be a slow night, our two groups waited about 20 minutes before we got in...past years the wait was sometimes over an hour.
Most of the actors were excellent! There were a few that didn't stay in character the whole time but overall the show was very good.
10 and up.
This years house was better than last year, but not the best I've seen at this location. There were some very creative scares, the opening scene was great, and at least three other scenes stick out in my mind as done very well. I liked the dark maze as well, the whole house was very well done. What it needed to round out the whole experience was more of a back story told to the patrons to build it up a little. Great job everyone!
