Visibility / Location:

There were spotlights and the haunt was easily visible from the street. The fairground had plenty of parking and it was quick and easy to get in and parked.

Wait Entertainment:

We were ushered to the front of the line immediately with our speed passes. The average wait was running about an hour. There were concessions available and a few ghouls scaring guests waiting in line.

Crowd Control:

The first half of the haunt you have a guide that keeps things moving pretty steadily. There weren't any problems with crowd control.


This was a fun and creative haunt. The sets they built are top notch and very well placed to get maximum scares from the front to the back of the group. The pathways are lit perfectly to be bright enough to see your footing but it was still very dim and scary throughout the trail. The actors here were committed to giving great, and authentic scares. They got me more than once and I'm not one to scare easily. The trail is a good length and you get a nice walk over the fairgrounds. One of my favorite sections were the crypts they built, that were filled with very enthusiastic undead and zombies. Once our guide was separated from our group, it was a slow crawl through terrifying sets built throughout the wooded trail. The scares aren't overly gore-filled so this would be a good haunt for preteens as well as your teens. The production at the haunt was just great and definitely worth the relatively low cost for this sized haunt.
