| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: Medium | Atmosphere: Good|
Visibility/Location: Easy to find. Right in the Bureau County Fairgrounds on west side of town.
Wait Entertainment: A couple younger guys with "Walmart masks" and baseball bats as props. I'd give them a tick below average. But, there was some kind of a, well, not sure what you'd call it, in all black with one eye and a couple of dolls strapped to his back. This guy kept us on our toes during the short wait we did have.
Length of Event: Three buildings total, west to east was 5 minutes, 10 minutes and 7or8 minutes.
Actor Performance: Actor performance seemed to be a bit better than last year. Still some well below average, but the others made up for that loss.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Flow was great. Heard but never saw another group while inside. But did see others at entrances at beginnings.
Appropriate Ages: 10+
Props / Special FX: Appeared to be more animatronics than previous years. An entire stage set up in the clown room, with very good props and 5 or 6 animatronic clowns that fit in well with the "living" clowns. Same old props and animatronics in the Pirate rooms, but I like them. A few props didn't seem to fit in at all.
Costumes / Make-up: Some costumes are high dollar. A red haired clown and a black haired clown have big bucks in costumes. Many others would be average to just above average. Some homemade garb, but you could tell much thought was put into it. Still though, too many "Walmart masks" and quickly done makeup jobs.
Summary: Overall, looking at the big picture, and considering the lowest price haunt in the state (it has to be) this is a must see. Three building haunt. A bonfire. A hayrack ride. Concession stand with good pricing. And to top it off for Friday the 13th, a free live band! What better entertainment can you find for $10 per person? We spent just over an hour on location. Recommended.
