Visibility/Location: Easy to find.

Wait Entertainment: Very good, ther was kareoke and many people with masks on in the halls.

Length of Event: 20 to 25 minutes

Actor Performance: Amazing. There were at least two actors i the room for each as they were called for. They scared you at the pefect time, right when you were vulnerable especially the clown room, SCARY.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: I saw another guop in the junkyard, but never caught up to them.

Appropriate Ages: 12 and up

Props / Special FX: Very good props as there was a lot of dummies in each room and the clown room was very colorful and scary

Costumes / Make-up: Make-up was exceptional, but the costumes were amazing. Especially the eye-ball room, I couldn't even see where the person was.

Summary: Overall this is teh best haunted house I've ever been to. There were at least two workers in every room that always picked the right time to scare you. The spinning vortex at the end was amazing, too, it's a classic. I also can't beleive that they took less than 200 square feet and turned it in to 25 minutes of pure scaredom and darkness. This is now my favorite haunted house in Illinois that I have been to.
