Visibility/Location: Well kinda easy to find the sign out front really helps as long as you know where north main is and you know how to drive north you will find it

Wait Entertainment: Well there was a guy dressed as Mike Myers (really good actor) and another lik 10 foot monster that kept walking in and out of the woods kinda creapy if you ask me. 
Also they had food for people waiting and a TV with some scary movie playing

Length of Event: well my group had alot of people that were scared so they ran alot so it took about 30 min but it could prolly take up to 45 mins if you take it slow i guess

Actor Performance: GREAT!! my guide knew her lines VERY WELL! and all the actors scared me. The guy after the hospital scared me the most! coming out of nowhere with a chain saw wow!! the crazy guy @ the morge was also very energetic and good. but i would have to say the prison was EXTREMLY SCARY all the actors did a great job

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Well paced out. Guides made the attraction very well paced out.

Appropriate Ages: umm well i would say 14+ only because it was VERY SCARY!

Props / Special FX: Great props first time i saw 3D effects without the glasses. not to mention the woods add additional Special FX.

Costumes / Make-up: GREAT use of prostectics and make up. only a few actors used masks but it gives it an old fashion look with now-a-days effects very nice you guys

Summary: ok now, This has got to be one of the BEST haunted houses in Illinois! it is worth the trip from chicago to come see it!! I came last year and it was prolly rated about a 7 or 7.5 but this year i would say a 9 or a 9.5 one of the patrons with my group wet thier pants i couldnt help but laughing. VERY SCARY and one of the BEST haunts ive ever seen. VERY VERY VERY good job you guys im thinking of coming back out there just to go trough again!! this time ill bring more people with me!! I Really look forward to seeing what your guys would be capable of next year setting the Haunt house bar even HIGHER then what it is now! you guys are at the top and will be there for a long time!!!
