Review

In one phrase, this haunt is worth the time and money. The actors and props were quality. Somethings that made this haunt stand out were the area where you had to crouch down and walk through a pitch black hallway and then squeeze through a walkway that was very tight. This haunt consists of three seperate houses that you can pick and choose from. However, I recommend doing all three. My favorite part was torment, the second haunt. The actors were frightening and even screamed out your name. It made the haunt seem like it was catering directly to you. The scenes are extremely detailed and for the most part the actors stay in character very well. There was one thing that I felt could have been improved and that was the make-up/ costumes of their actors. Some were great but others needed improvement. The facial make-up was obviously peeling or just masks cut into two sections and put on. This took away from the creepiness of the actors even with their great preformances. The 3d house was very cool amd watcing people run screaming in terror while you are waiting to get in really sets the tone for a creepy time. If not for that aspect, this haunt probably would have gotten perfect scores for fun and scare factors.

Signage / Visibility / Location


Very easy to find. There is large lit up signage indicating where to turn and signs showing you where to park.

Wait Area / Line Entertainment


Total waiting time for all three haunted houses approximately 25 minutes. This was a very reasonable wait. I was pleased with the wait. There were people walking around spooking waiting patrons and in the tent at the beginning they had extra things to do like inflatables that were reasonably priced.

Actors' Performance


Actors were pretty professional and stayed in character. Some were more frightening than others but all were working very hard. I especially liked a guy who described to us how to get me prepared to be eaten in extreme detail. Also, the girl who was crawling on the floor definately made me scream. I want to send a special thank you to the actors in Torment. They were so great and made me jump.

Sets Scenes / Props / FX


This place is the place to be for well put together sets and a huge amount of props. The scenes are extremely detailed and covered from floor to ceiling. I especially liked the dinning room scene.

Length


For all three haunts plus the wait it took about one hour and ten minutes.

Crowd Control


Very good. There were defined lines that were roped off and lots of workers making sure everyone knew where to go and where to wait.

Most Memorable Moment


I would have to say that my favorite part was that they have an "I Quit" rule where if you get too scared you put your hands on your head and say I quit. The group right before us was a group of high school girls and one of them quit after only less than a minute. She came running out screaming in terror and ran into a fence because she was so terrified.

Summary

Overall, definately worth checking out. Short , well controlled lines for waiting. Three haunts in one and lots of props and detailed scenes to look at. Look out for the crawling girl and make sure to pay attention to the beauty of the 3d effects in the last haunt.
