Signage / Visibility / Location
There was a orangeish sign on the corner of the brick building above the line. It's very close to the Oshkosh University.
Wait Area / Line Entertainment
Wait area was nice and clean. Heated and eerie lighting set a good mood. Add the ghost DVD and loud sound effects you will get pumped up for it. The announcer also added excitement reminding you they have had people leave and offer "take it easy on me stickers" for faint hearted tourists.
Wait was longer than it felt due to the DVD. About 45min. Event was around 20min.
Varied. Some only got close in your face and made somekind of human/monster "growl". The red-eyed monster in "kitchen hall" was expertise. Moved perfect and sounded natural. Cool costume to see! Little guy up on balcony--You were very chilling standing on the stairs.
10 and up
You need to get lucky for it to be that scary. I didn't like having a group of about 8-10 people. On top of a large group, the kids in the front got the "take it easy on me" sticker! I asked if my group of 5 could go after the group ahead. I was told no. It was then I realized I was on my way to go through a WALK that cost me $9. Thats $9 I could have spent at a house where I don't hear screems yards ahead around a corner befor most of the group passes(no surprise for tail enders). I left very disappointed. I thought it would have been a lot more intense. I truly can't see why some people leave, wet their pants, or pass out.
The opra house is very nicely designed and rustic. The house's sight is something to see. Good preservation!
