Visibility/Location: a little hard to find if you don't know the area

Wait Entertainment: good not not great

Length of Event: about 15 minutes

Actor Performance: top shelf. the timing was perfect, the preformance flawless

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: it was a nice pace, you were lead by rope through the maze.

Appropriate Ages: younger kids (below 10) would be frightened a little to much

Props / Special FX: again top shelf and abundant

Costumes / Make-up: as good as it gets

Summary: This is the icon of haunted houses. As a builder of a haunted attraction myself, I found it jaw dropping. The detail of the sets and the timing and location of the actors was second to none. I could not recommend this attraction highly enough.

Visibility/Location: very high as it is located along a major highway into peoria.

Wait Entertainment: none

Length of Event: about 10 to 15 minutes per event

Actor Performance: what little interactive actors they had were ok. I found only one actor that was interesting.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: it was average

Appropriate Ages: small childen would be affected by loud noise and darkness

Props / Special FX: they spent money on the props they had although they did not use them to great effect. The lighting in the haunted forrest did not hightlight or add to the props they had

Costumes / Make-up: it was ok nothing great

Summary: this was a large facility not used to its potential. most of the show was your average maze through various scenes that were static. The twin vortex and 3-d were spectacular, the best I have ever seen. those items are worth the money.

Event Reviewed: Nightmare on Fairgrounds Road (Princeton, Illinois)

Visibility/Location: Easy to find as the town is mderate in size and the fairgrounds are large

Wait Entertainment: They had something to see or experience the entire time.

Length of Event: it took us about 40 minutes to see everything.

Actor Performance: This was their strength. They had some very clever preformances. The openning act was outstanding.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: A little odd but they had help in all the key places so there was no confusion.

Appropriate Ages: I would not take anyone under ten through.

Props / Special FX: they had some of the best I have seen in this area.

Costumes / Make-up: About average, nothing special or outstanding.

Summary: This is something different then I have seen before. They are not just a maze walking through scenes. Their sets are really creative and well done. The Vortex tunnel was in 3-d(very cool, and the coal mine mixed motion with sound. For 5 bucks this was the best bargin for a what you get that I have been to. A big cut above the maze layout of most.
