Visibility/Location: Located right off the exit ramp to Downs Illinois, large sign marking the event.

Wait Entertainment: The remote building has an occasional monster walking around but this remote building is primarily for refreshments, toilets, and boarding a hayride to the haunted house. This step can be eliminated by parking near the haunted house if you wish. The house has various creatures walking the lines, excellent interaction with the guests.

Length of Event: The house takes maybe 10 minutes to complete.

Actor Performance: Every actor done a fantastic job and stayed in character.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The flow through the haunted house was flawless, never ran into another group and everything was spaced out perfectly.

Appropriate Ages: I would say 7 or 8 year olds could handle this haunted house.

Props / Special FX: Thereís lots of good looking props scattered throughout the house, nothing high tech here though but itís acceptable.

Costumes / Make-up: The costumes, masks and makeup was well done. Iím not a big fan of masks but they do add enhancements which greatly improve the effect.

Summary: This is a small town haunted house and uses modest sets and props to achieve a great attraction, itís definitely not a high profile haunt but for $5.00 itís a great event and enjoyable. This event has a good following and thereís a reason, they deliver a good haunt. The surrounding of the haunted house with a graveyard setting works great and everything works to achieve the feeling of horror. I highly recommend a stop off at Downs for a good home town haunt!
