Review

Signage / Visibility / Location

hard to see if you do not know where it is (I had been there before), there is a single since and some orange lights

Wait Area / Line Entertainment

nothing really, just a line in a field

Most Unique

riding in the 'hurst' to get to the back 40 to start the woods. the fact that you are out in the woods going from 'scene' to 'scene' - the 1/4 stick of dynamite used...

Actors' Performance

poor - a lot of 'masks' and people out of character. I was there last year and was scared, this year the 5 and 9 year old i went with were not in the least bit

Appropriate For

5

Summary

I had been there last year for the first time, and it was the BEST haunted event that I had EVER been to (i usually go to 5-7 events each October, if not more), so this year I was really looking forward to it, but you know this year was a HUGE disappointment. the timing was horrible - we ran into the group in frong of us, and they ran into the group in front of them...last year there was a single "hurst" this year they decided to use 2, and well that made the line shorter, but the timing suffered. the actors were not very 'into' their roles, and a lot of them just stood around, or made (attempted) funny lines...One person in my party commented it was a "red-neck Halloween" because there were a lot of 'errs' and 'get er done's' being used by the actors. A lot of the original elements from last year seem to be lost this year.

Many people beleive that Haunts will go through cycles of being really good to get people there, and then just live off past experiences...i think this happened here this year.

I would not go this year, but might try it next year
