Visibility/Location: At a well-known church off a pretty busy street on the Northside of Chicago. Decent signage - and security was out in front so you knew something was going on - signage as well on the school.

Wait Entertainment: A couple of ghouls walked through the line... one was 4ft tall and made 20 jr. high cheerleaders scream - entertaining and annoying at the same time.

Length of Event: 10 minutes

Actor Performance: For the most part - strong. No lazy creatures here. One covered his ears and yelled "GOD!" when one of the gals in our group shrieked at him.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: VERY GOOD. No groups we could hear/see in front or behind us.

Appropriate Ages: 10 and up

Props / Special FX: For the most part decent - and creative.

Costumes / Make-up: Mostly masks w/folks dressed in black - didn't see much (if at all) makeup.

Summary: The location is cool. We loved hearing Disturbed while being inside a church (the basement of the church). Overall a small haunt but a decent one - worth the visit and a very fair price! :)

Visibility/Location: At a well known location (arcade/bowling alley/mini-golf) entertainment center off of the main thouroughfare (Rollins Rd.) in Round Lake - Lots of signage in front as well.

Wait Entertainment: At the time we were there, there was none, but it was fun watching the clown mess w/groups just before he took them in.

Length of Event: 10-15 min for ROT 
5-15 min for X-Chaos (depending how "lost" you get)

Actor Performance: First 2 actors are extremely strong! In generall, all actors were strong - none were caught off-guard when we were there... all were pretty intense.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: VERY Good - we could not hear nor see any groups in front or behind us.

Appropriate Ages: 10 and up (use judgement with your kiddies)

Props / Special FX: VERY Cool props - unique FX

Costumes / Make-up: EXCELLENT in ROT 
X-Chaos more folks in masks and jumpsuits.

Summary: Our group loved ROT, the guy at the end got my husband. Characters are pretty intense and makeup/costumes rocked. X-Chaos could use some more creatures like ROT had (more actors & more intense)

Visibility/Location: Off of a main road (North Ave.) and there is a well-lit sign.

Wait Entertainment: Various characters of ALL types messed with the crowd. B96 was also there the night we attended and Monster Drinks was doing a promotional appearance.

Length of Event: About 15-20 minutes... seemed to go on forever.

Actor Performance: A+++. Many are unique characters you won't see anywhere else. They are intense and come at you from EVERYWHERE.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Moved well, no traffic jams which is good!

Appropriate Ages: 10 and up? (use good judgement with your kids).

Props / Special FX: SO much stuff to look at and in your face most of the time.

Costumes / Make-up: Makeup was amazing, and lots of detail - looked like they stepped out of a movie.

Summary: Overall an amazing haunt - we've been fans for several years and were impressed with how many changes there were from last year. Do not miss this one and one big tip: GET THERE EARLY or you will wait - when we left at 8:45 or so, the line was almost 2+ blocks long!
