There were a couple of actors who broke character really easily after their initial scare like the actor who broke when someone in our group thought he was a sunflower. Overall, every character had great banter.

Customer Service (10%)
1: How easy was it to locate the attraction, park and navigate the premises? (25%) 7.67
2: How safe was the attraction? (30%)

There was no signage about social distancing or wearing mask enforcement. There also wasn’t a COVID-19 response on their website. The lighting in the midway also made everything hard to see.
3: How professional, helpful and friendly were the staff members? (25%)

There was no obvious staff in the midway. If they were staff, they just blended in with the crowd. If the staff wore vests or something with lights, they would have been easier to identify.
4: How easy was it to find their information before you arrived? 10
Customer Service Score: 7.15
Atmosphere (10%)
1: How obvious was it that you were at a haunted house before entering? (60%) 8
2: How well did the atmosphere prepare you for what you experienced inside? (40%) 3.33
The line actors should have been more engaging. They mostly just completed a loop before disappearing. We didn’t really get a sense of the haunt from the outside.

The scenes didn’t really work as they were. It would have been better to leave them out and focus on costuming OR spend more time developing more scenes.
