Score: 8.1 out of 10
This haunt has been around for many years, and is part of Lake Compounce theme park. If you do go, I recommend you get a double ticket and go to the park itself for a couple hours in the late afternoon, then go to the haunt.
A lot of people really like this haunt, more than I did. I liked it, but found others nearby (Trail of Terror, Haunted Acres) more effective, more detailed. This is however a good event and worth going to at least once.
It should be noted this is a mix of indoor and outdoor. They say it's outdoor, but if you are going on a cool night, or there's mist or even a very light rain, you could probably do this event and not just have to find an indoor one.

Not sure who paid for your review, but I disagree with much of your assessment. Yes, they are really good at themes and their sets and costumes/make up let you know where you are, but the whole show is getting very tired and predictable. It was much better a few years ago. There were more actors, more energy and more scares. When I went this year, I can't tell you how many actors I walked by that just watched me pass by or were too busy on their cell phones to provide a scare. A good number of the animatronics didn't work. I paid a lot of money to visit the Graveyard. I didn't pay to see the same tired old show that's been there for years and actors just standing around texting other ghouls.

Score: 3 out of 10
I came down with my husband for our anniversary, which happened to be Friday the 13th, you'd assume one of the busier times for the season, so you'd have ample staff. Saw alot of the staff on phones, we got bunched together with 2 crowds before us. So it lost its scare factor. I think updating the animatronics to actually work, get actors who care and not on their cellphones and space out the crowds better. I truly enjoy supporting this place but just tired of being disappointed.

Score: 10 out of 10
Went with my family and had an amazing time, every set is VERY detailed and the make up is amazing! We were jump scared the entire time. The ambience of sound really made the quality of the Haunted Graveyard even better. The Hospital at the end of the graveyard was probably the best section but I felt as though it would do better more towards the middle of the show and not the end. I go every year and will never stop going, each year they do something bigger and better!
