Visibility/Location: Very easy to find. There were signs for it as soon as you got off the interstate.

Wait Entertainment: This was a huge plus, had many people outside wandering around. They were even walking by road harassing cars. There was also a Suburban that was full of kids that didn't want to go and a bunch of them surrounded the car, funny stuff hearing them scream.

Length of Event: The wait time was about 20 minutes cuz of the intermission, and it lasted about 10 minutes.

Actor Performance: All the actors were volunteers, so they were pretty good considering that fact.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Flow was very good. We never saw another group.

Appropriate Ages: 10 and up

Props / Special FX: The props weren't all that great, but you really can't expect extravagant props for it being a Kiwanis benefit.

Costumes / Make-up: Costumes were really good, especially one of the guys who was dressed as a vampire.

Summary: Overall I had a really good time. There were many kids there, and one group of them only lasted about 2 minutes and they turned around and left. The outside entertainment was the best IMO. One actor chased a group of girls all the way to their car, great stuff.

Scare Factor: Very High | Atmosphere: Average

Visibility/Location: Difficult to find, especially since the sign for Washington street is almost falling off.

Wait Entertainment: Granted we were some of the first ones there, but it would be nice to have more characters wandering around scaring people. They did have a TV though showing The Simpsons halloween episodes.

Length of Event: wait was about 15 minutes with it lasting about 5-10.

Actor Performance: Actors were pretty good, but I did have to ask some for help because we didn't know which way to head next. There were a few though that just sat there doing nothing. One even told me, "Hey you can't go in there," even though it was the direction we were suppose to go, so that was kinda strange.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Flow was good and we didn't see any other groups, but like I said it wasn't to busy yet.

Appropriate Ages: I'd say 12 and up.

Props / Special FX: The props weren't amazing to me, but they had people jumping out from everywhere so to me it didn't really matter to me.

Costumes / Make-up: The costumes were excellent.

Summary: Overall it was a pretty scary house, but I also rolled an ankle and smacked my head on a wooden beam, so you might want to try to watch where you're going. I literally had to carry my wife on my back from the middle of the house until it was over cuz she was so scared.

Visibility/Location: Very easy to find. I've never been before but there were many signs up directing us where to go. There were also flagmen in the parking lot helping you park, very nice.

Wait Entertainment: I wish they would have had more than one guy running around scaring people in the line, but it wasn't bad.

Length of Event: Wait time was 30 minutes with the event lasting 10-15.

Actor Performance: The actors were pretty good and stayed in character the whole time.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Moved a little fast for my liking, but we also didn't run into any other groups cuz of the tour guide.

Appropriate Ages: I'd say 10+

Props / Special FX: Excellent props, one of the best I've seen.

Costumes / Make-up: Costumes weren't as gorey as some places, but not to bad.

Summary: For me Creature's Crypt was more fun than scary, but still a good time. Some people have complained about it not being dark enough, but the city of Bloomington has a fire code restricting them to have a certain about of light in case of an emergency, so it's not their fault. Overall it was a really fun time and I'd like to go again.
