To get started the wait was only about 30-45 minutes. The nice thing is that the entire line is an indoor wait. There were two actors working the line, not very scary but they had some nice costumes.
Once at the front of the line in order to get started you actually have to walk up to the top level of the factory. There was one actor working the stairs and he was rather funny. The first room we were directed into was an office. There were two actors working the room and the room had an extremely bad odor. This could have been by design but was strong enough to make someone gage. You then travel though some hallways which had potential for many startle points but it seems like there were not enough actors to stage them all and the actors that were there really missed the mark on the correct time to jump out. The hallways were made up of sheets and plywood walls. Not really much design they were rather plain.
After the top floor you walk down some stairs and enter the second area which is 3D. This area was not very scary but someone spent a great deal of time painting because the path seemed to go on for a long period of time. The paint was all the same though.
The last level was clowns. Somewhat amusing even fun at times.
Starting with the good, The actors were allowed to use hand props, sometimes hitting you with soft items or throwing things at you. This added some, many haunts do not allow actors to use props like that. There was a 3D portion which is always cool (see bad section also)
Now with the bad, could have used many more actors. The haunt lacked design, made up mostly of curtains and plywood walls with nothing on them, there were only a few structured rooms. In the dark hallways the actors kept turning on flashlights and flicking lighters, this was very hard on the eyes and rather uncalled for. There was a 3D section that was the same thing over and over again, a lot of poke a dot hallways.
In closing – compared to other haunts, this one is on the upper end of cost, I would consider going somewhere else first.
