Visibility/Location: Two of those Wacky arm flailing giant tube men give away the location of the haunt very well if your coming from the west down North Ave

Wait Entertainment: Several actors were running about scaring the patrons(although the chainsaw hillbilly should spend less time on scaring one person...).

Length of Event: About 10 to 15 minutes in length

Actor Performance: Very good, considering most were on their game, I did see a few standing around and talking before they saw me though...

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Very good, I did run into the group in front of me before entering the clown room though...

Appropriate Ages: 12 and up

Props / Special FX: Sets excellently designed with lots of accents.

Costumes / Make-up: Costumes and makeup fit well throughout the whole haunt. The Makeup was also excellently done.

Summary: Out of the haunts in Chicagoland, this is my favorite with Statesville coming up at a very close second this year, mainly because of the energy coming out of the actors. Great work Guys!

Event Reviewed: Statesville Haunted Prison & City of the Dead (Crest Hill, Illinois)

Visibility/Location: The two squad cars sitting at the entrance(on Weber Rd.) to the parking lot were a dead giveaway as to when to turn in...

Wait Entertainment: Several "Guards" running around calling you maggots get you into the mood to go into a prision type haunt(or to beat one of them up...)

Length of Event: 45minutes to an hour(depends on how fast you move through both haunts...)

Actor Performance: Good, except for the handfull of actors talking and those that looked like they were tired as hell(one evn looked to be sleeping)

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: We ran into the group in front of us several times, but they moved them ahead of us at several choke points.

Appropriate Ages: 12 and up

Props / Special FX: Both Haunts were very well designed with tons of eye candy placed througout both haunts.

Costumes / Make-up: The Costumeing was excellent, but 95% of the makeup inside the haunts was to basic, almost to the point of just being horrible.

Summary: This haunt definatly gets away with alot of things most haunts would never dream of getting away with(slanting walls, plexi glass floors ect.)This is definatly one of those haunts that imerses you in what your going through.
