Visibility/Location: Location is at a public venue/area with ample parking. Signs at the entrance and signs leading to the ticket booth.

Wait Entertainment: They had 4 or 5 people in full costume walking among all those in line. I thought they were wonderful. It is fun to see the reaction people gave them.

Length of Event: It took probably 10-15 minutes to go through the entire haunt

Actor Performance: I thought the actors timing was very good. They would wait until our entire party (6 of us) was in their room to begin. Their dialogue, those that had it was, I thought perfect for their own rooms. Their screams were quite real!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: I thought the staff handled the crowds well. Their appeared to be ample security moving about if needed.

Appropriate Ages: I don't believe anyone under 12 or 13 should probably go - it might be just a bit too intense for the younger children.

Props / Special FX: I particularly enjoyed their Wheel of Death - very scary when the lady on the wheel jumped out at us. Loved the fog and laser lights in the Swamp Room with Alligator Man hovering just under the fog and them jumping out of it - awesome! They have an animated dog jumping out of a dog house too, can't remember which room but it scares me every time!

Costumes / Make-up: The costumes for all the actors were perfect for the haunt. Loved the masks and the eyes of the actors walking through the crowd! The make-up for a couple of the clowns in rooms of the haunt was marvelous, perfect for their theme.

Summary: I have been to this haunt for several years now. They never disappoint! Their themes/rooms/decorations change from year to year. The entire experience is awesome, I am never disappointed. It seems they go into so much detail with their costumes, the props and masks/make-up. I will certainly go back again next year. Maybe even get back one more time this year!

Visibility/Location: Fairground in Urbana - use GPS brings you directly to the event.

Wait Entertainment: There’s several creatures interacting with the waiting lines ..

Length of Event: The haunted attraction lasted around 15 minutes .

Actor Performance: All the actors done an exceptional job, some better than others but overall very good.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The flow was seamless, we encountered no other groups.

Appropriate Ages: I would say 8 to 10 year olds could handle this attraction.

Props / Special FX: Lots of standard props, nothing high tech but it was well presented. There was several scenes which contained animatronic figures and everything was timed to perfection.

Costumes / Make-up: The costumes, makeup and masks were acceptable, not a big fan of masks but the darkness worked to enhance there appearance.

Summary: After a couple years off here we returned and was very impressed with the new scenes and the overall appearance of this attraction. The setting within the fairgrounds works effectively to establish a remote location and a midway type of event. This attraction is laced with circus type of scenes, lots of clowns, and overall appearance to being “Midway of Terror” - it works great ! This group has done a fantastic job and this is a must see attraction!
