Signage / Visibility / Location
Signs leading you in the right direction. It's almost like the whole town is advertising the thing. Location is inside the Auto Museum next to the river.
Wait Area / Line Entertainment
Waiting area is partially outdoors. There are actors roaming the grounds that lead to the anticipation. The "giant" is cool.
3 unique mentions: 1) The checkerboard game. Misdirection at it's finest 2) The pendulum scene is definately unique. Be prepared for "scene interaction" 3) the fact that this event is non-profit. One could expect a charity event to not be a "top tier" Haunt. Dick, the operator of TORS, really put a lot of time and effort into this event. The scenes, makeup and details are fantastic.
Once again, they are REALLY into their roles. Timing is spot on. The actors with actual dialog are awesome.
I pretty much said what it all. I loved this Haunt and so did the group I went with. The ONLY drawback was the "bunching". Groups would run into each other. That happens though and it's not unique to this event. Overall, I was very pleased.
