Location: Haunt is located on a farm. Easy to find as they have lighted signs to direct you. The only down side is the road you have to drive down is a small farm road so hard for cars to go both ways on the road.
Parking: As it is on a farm, there is plenty on parking on their grass field.
Price: At $15 the price is great for the amount you get.
Length: Total time is around 1 hour
Waiting Area: They have you wait in a barn that has hay to direct you around the barn. Actors hiding out to scare you while you wait. The only down side is you spend a lot of time standing in there. The haunt takes people in groups of 20 or so, so you will stand in the same place for a while. Would have like to see a seating area where they called numbers. They do have refreshments, but they are located in the outer part of the barn. If we had known, we would have gotten something before we entered the line area.
Haunt: Haunt is split into a haunted mine, haunted hay ride, walk through a haunted woods and then a corn field. The haunted mine had some great effects and lots of actors. The down side is they relied on the dropped hole in the wall and screaming at you a bit to much. At the end of the mine, you wait by a fire for the rest of the 20 people in your group. Some great actors out there to keep you entertained. Then you get on the hay ride. At this point all the actors from the house come out and continue to scare you as you ride off. The ride takes a while to get to the area where the scares are. Would have liked to see them do something along the way. The actors in the ride area are great and will jump up and sit next to you. Some really great elements along the ride. I don't want to spoil it but there will be at least one scare that will get you to jump out of your seat. They drop you off in the woods, where you wait to walk back. They send everyone in small groups of 2-3 people. They have a fire to keep you warm while you wait. The woods and cornfield were a disappointment. There were not enough actors to provide a good scare, and the scenes they set up were not complete. The best scare and actor was ruined by seeing him attack the groups before us.
Overall a fun haunt for the money. Great for families as it is not too scary and allows a parent to pair up with their kid for a bonding event. If you do a lot of houses like me, you will not find it scary.
