Signage / Visibility / Location
We were able to find it relatively easily from the line of cars headed there. The signs, from what I did see, were visible.
Wait Area / Line Entertainment
There was a small indoor waiting area but the majority of the people had to stand outside. At one point, the line for the tickets ended up in the line for concessions because they both went out the same door. No one was buying tickets even though the line was around the block.
Had to be the talking deer head who would converse with you while you waited inside the house. Isnt it deer hunting season soon?
Some of them were really into it, others looked like they were just passing the time. A lot of rooms with people talking to the visitors.
12 and up, geared (I felt) to a younger crowd
Personally, I didnt think it was worth the 3 hours we waited. There were a couple of scary in-your-face moments but not many. The rooms were really cramped and it was often difficult to get the group in them. I felt the younger crowd would have gotten more of a kick out of it.
