We went to this house because my sister was psyched to go. The $10 price tag seemed reasonable, and I liked the idea of a covered waiting area. The 1/4 mile haunted hike in pitch darkness was awesome, and I loved the chainsaws and ghouls along the way.
The group numbering system is great - being able to mill about and be by the bonfire or concession stand makes the wait more bearable. However, the two and a half hour wait to get into the house was not something I was expecting.
While there were spooks out scaring people, there were also actors just out and about chatting with friends - not scary.
When we finally got into the house, I was surprised by the number of very young volunteers. There were a couple kids in there who looked younger than 10. There was a lot of great ideas that made up the experience, but there were a few things that were just nasty. The port-a-potty idea would have been great, but the dirty diapers and bloody maxi pads on the walls were gross - not scary.
Its a 3 story building - yes, we know there's going to be stairs. But all the crawling sucked. There should be some kind of warning for people who would have hard time on their hands and knees scurrying around in the dark.
Not bad for your money. Be prepared to wait. Be prepared to crawl around on your hands and knees ... and don't go in with your expectations too high.
