Review

Signage / Visibility / Location

Not sure, I knew where the house was, having been there in the past, so I didn't really look for signs. There is a light-up marquee sign right at the entrance.

Wait Area / Line Entertainment

There waasn't much in the way of entertainment aside from a few toy bats, but with all the great snacks available, who really cares. There's ample room (when it's not crowded) so sit and wait, so make sure you've got interesting friends or a deck of cards.

Length

I'd guess 20 to 30 minutes.

Actors' Performance

I thought the actors really seemed to enjoy their parts and gave it great effort, they can't be blamed if their parts just weren't that scary.

Appropriate For

8 and up

Summary

I've always loved this haunt. It took over a week of coaxing to get my significant other to break down and go since his only other experience with this house wasn't great. We arrived at 7:30 and were told it would be about an hour before we got into the house. It really only took about half an hour four our numbers to be called (fantastic!) Hint- if you go with just one other person, you stand a much better chance of getting in quickly, they are constantly asking for anyone with a group of 2 to come to the front of the line.

The little girl who led us to the start of the haunt was fantastic, truely sinister. From there it was downhill. The majority of the scenes were not scary at all- most that could've been were made into more of a comedy act than a scare. There weren't any surprises, most everything was easily anticipated. Overall, I was pretty disappointed. The other problem was that the group in front of us somehow split in half, I'm not sure if half left, or what the deal was, but they ended up combining us, which made it impossible to cram our whole group into a room, so 2 or 3 people constantly missed the little that was going on in any given room.

Review

Signage / Visibility / Location

Good location but never see the signs, always have to stop at gas station to ask- they of course as you walk in say "looking for haunted house?"

Wait Area / Line Entertainment

none, chalk board was good with the numbers and the overhead announcements.

Length

about 20 minutes

Actors' Performance

I am usually the one to talk endlessly about Hubertus...but, this year I was very disappointed with the haunt. The lack of actors and acting was minimal. I know it was on homecoming week end and maybe some of the actors were attending that but it really wasn't very scary or impressive this year.

Appropriate For

above 10

Summary

Again, I was very disappointed, I really liked the bus in the beginning and the strobe light with the actors in the bus and going over the seats. Strobe lights and the darkness gives the unknown(even if you've been there before). I look forward to getting scared next year. I have been coming for over 10 years and I really have enjoyed my scares at Hubertus!

Review

Signage / Visibility / Location

Location is visible & easy to find; the street full of cars is a dead giveaway

Wait Area / Line Entertainment

Arcade games & a concession stand; waited roughly 10-15 minutes.

Length

Somewhere around 20 minutes.

Actors' Performance

The performance has been better in past years.

Appropriate For

Ages 8+

Summary

Overall very disappointing; many actors/spooks were under the age of 18. Instead of blood-curling screams, I got blood-curling yelps. No good scares.

Review

Signage / Visibility / Location

Thanks to guided assistance from a passer-by, we followed him straight to the house. Once we got close it was easy to depict out. Most of that confussion is our fault of sloppy preperatons for directions.

Wait Area / Line Entertainment

No entertainment, but pleanty of snacks and refreshments. Good ones too. Ticket call system always a plus.

Length

Took about 20min. to complete the event. A little short.

Actors' Performance

I think the guys here slipped a little from last year. I was not as impressed as compaired to the year before. Some of it was the same. Staff encourages group interactivness while going through the haunt. Some scenes were good, others cheesy. Good balance between dark hallways and rooms. Don't add anymore though. Seems to be less characters than last year. The ones you did have however did perform a good act. Need to improve on level of scare, and use of effects. I understnd that everyone has a differnet budget, but you guys pulled if off in the past.

Appropriate For

12 & up

Summary

This event I gave a "2", but I know they are capable of doing better from attending years in the past. Improvement suggestions would be that it could be a little longer. Do something with the bus. If you decide to keep the slpatterd paint room, at least get the 3-D glasses back. It was getting old, but if you must keep it in the plan, get back the glasses. The room themes need improvement. Just aren't scary. What I did like were the characters. You could tell that they wanted to be there and performed well. The reputation of this house prevents it from getting a "1". Not everything needs major improvements, but these minor changes will greatly increase the quality of this haunt.

Review

Signage / Visibility / Location

Okay. They had staff directing traffic. Easy to see.

Wait Area / Line Entertainment

Video games and food.

Length

20-30 minutes. Seemed to be an appropriate amount of time.

Actors' Performance

Varied. The first real scene after you entered was very well acted, but some of the scenes kind of made you groan because they were stupid.

Appropriate For

11+ (Had 2 in our group, and they complained about not being scared)

Summary

What really irritates me about this house is that they advertise that they open at 6:30, but both last year and this year, they haven't started letting people in until 7:20 or so. When asked, they have no idea what's going on. Seems very unprofessional to me.

Review

Signage / Visibility / Location

Good location, but could have had a sign visable to show where you enter off the road.

Wait Area / Line Entertainment

We waited about an hour to get in. It was pretty busy for opening night.

Length

It lasted about 20-30 min, give or take a few.

Actors' Performance

Actors were energetic and ready to scare. Costumes were pretty good. Got the actors in the first room to laugh, and mess up their lines a little bit.

Appropriate For

8 or older

Summary

All in all it was better than I expected it to be. Good props, and scary environment definately helps it out.
