Review Posted: 10/24/06
| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: High | Atmosphere: Good|
Visibility/Location: Right off Cicero near 294
Wait Entertainment: No wait so no entertainment
Length of Event: About 10 minutes
Actor Performance: Very energetic - they did great
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: It was cold and snowing on a Monday so it wasn't very busy - no issues with flow
Appropriate Ages: Scary so use your own judgement - under 8 would be questionable - my 9 and 10 year olds were OK
Props / Special FX: Not alot of props or special effects, but the ones they had were good.
Costumes / Make-up: VERY good. They spent alot of time getting into character. This really made the experience.
Summary: We loved it. We went through a Jaycee 2 years ago and went to Statesville last year and this was by far the best deal. We paid $10 and after going through it this was a steal. No one was scared at Statesville last year at $25 a person, but everyone got spooked at Sweet Dreams.
The staff played their parts with energy and the theme of movie characters was awesome. They brought Freddy, Grudge, Jason, Michael, Chainsaw, the Ring, and some others to life.
The only room for improvement was finding our way through it because there were several times we had no clue where to go. On the flip side this actually added to the anxiety of the group so it maybe wasn't a bad thing afterall.
Hopefully the haunt is a success because we fully intend to go back next year.
