Visibility/Location: There was a sign on Rte 47 and then drove by it because I didn't know for sure that the building was it.

Wait Entertainment: None. The teenage girls that wanted back out were more entertaining.

Length of Event: Probably about 15 minutes.

Actor Performance: Great. Didn't know they were there until you found them or they jumped at you to scare you.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Great. Didn't run into any other groups.

Appropriate Ages: Not if you are afraid of the dark.

Props / Special FX: Good not spectacular but appropriate for the price.

Costumes / Make-up: Good.

Summary: For $6 it is a great value for the money. It is so dark you often don't know the character is there until you actually run into them. You sort of feel your way through the maze. I'm not easily scared but they manage to startle me twice.

Visibility/Location: I had no trouble finding it.

Wait Entertainment: We took the speed pass and did not stand in the 1 hour line. Not much wait entertainment to be had.

Length of Event: It took us about 45 minutes to go through both houses.

Actor Performance: The actors did a good job. My problem was that there were so many that I wasn't even startled when they jumped out at me.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The statesville prison moved pretty good with smaller groups going through. The city of the dead even though we were held up before entering rooms we were soon caught up with those in front of us.

Appropriate Ages: No clue.

Props / Special FX: Appropriate.

Costumes / Make-up: Excellent.

Summary: I wouldn't go again. I was never scared or even startled. Maybe because of the size of the groups going through, too much light so I could really see where we were going most of the time, or just too many characters jumping out at you. Got more out of a cheap local haunted house than at Stateville.
