Signage / Visibility / Location
We have been to this haunted house many times before. We also know the area because my family loves a restaurant that is near the haunted attraction. So, I didn't follow the directions on the internet. It is not hard finding it though.
Wait Area / Line Entertainment
There is a building that you can wait in. There are benches to sit on, a food area, and some games to play. There is also an outside area to wait in (the building walls block the wind pretty much). I didn't see anyone dressed in costume walking around, which would have made it more fun! They also didn't have any props out like they used to have. I was kind of disappointed with that.
We arrived around 9:00 and got our tickets. They were calling numbers that were about 400 away from ours...and they call them in groups of 50. So, we decided to get a few drinks at a local bar/restaurant. We were there for about an hour and a half. When we walked back, they were calling the group right before us, so it was perfect timing. Overall wait was about an hour and 40 minutes. We expected that because of how late we got there. The length of the event was about 20-25 minutes.
The actors were really into their roles! It was a lot of fun. The overall haunted house was really good. The only thing that I didn't like was that they made you go in groups of 10!!! That is just too big for a haunted house. You just can't scare that big of a group as much as you could a smaller group!!! We also ran into the group before us and the group behind us ran into us! That is my main complaint. I loved the props and the actors. I didn't like the group sizes and running into other groups...that always ruins it.
I could not believe how many little children I saw at the haunted house. One woman was carrying her little boy (who was sleeping) into the haunted house. I really don't think any of the haunted houses are a place for young children.
