The event was very unorganized. The activities were way over crowded. I enjoyed myself bc of the company I was in but the event wasn't all that great

Our kids enjoyed the mini-flashlights to use in the path and the decorationg of pumpkins. They did wish the path/route was a little longer (maybe next year?)with maybe spookier pumpkins or maybe a spooky/funmy haunted house (my kids are 6-9 yr.)...continued

My son and I had a great time. It was not too crowded. Just spooky enough to not be scary and the length of the event was perfect. Everything was spread out, so it felt like there was plenty to do. He loved using his flashlight to walk around and...continued

Not scary at all. OK for little kids. Not really much to see. Pumkin carver was on a dinner break at 7:40 when the event started at 6:30. He should have been there all the time. At $20. per person not worth it.
