Review

We arrived at this haunt just before closing and there were still a lot of people there - a good sign. We waited about 30 minutes before we entered the haunt which starts with a creepy dark walk through the woods. Once you enter the house, each room presents a new face and a new scare. The make-up, costumes, and FX are all pretty good. The actors all do a good job - a few of them stumbled over their lines. I appreciated that each room had an interactive actor who had a story and a presentation and encouraged us to stick around with him/her for a while, there wasn't much jumping out and yelling "boo," they went for the bigger scare, which I like. The only thing I was disappointed about was the number of animatronic scares throughout the house. They don't do much for me and I was let-down in a number of rooms because they relied on those creatures to scare us. Buzz-kill. Overall, though, a good haunt that lasts pretty long, so definitely worth it.

Summary

Check it out. It's fun and the actors are pretty good. Take your time on the woods walk - it's one of the scariest parts.
