Visibility/Location: Located in school gym; just north of Lake Zurich on Old McHenry Road (Note: this is NOT located at the Fairgrounds). No problem with parking. There was a flashing blue light at entrance.

Wait Entertainment: Good. Food and entertainment. Wasn't a long wait, but this was the first weekend.

Length of Event: Estimate 15 to 20 minutes.

Actor Performance: Good to average. Good Jungle adventure. Got "stuck" in one of the hallways.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Pretty good. Got backed up at the hallway "doors".

Appropriate Ages: Some actors and situations make it too intense for young ones.

Props / Special FX: Good with some surprises. Typical lights, fog and special effects.

Costumes / Make-up: Pretty good make up. Most different than last year.

Summary: About ten differnt rooms or areas. Some require stooping or sliding, although I saw a gal make it through on crutches. I remember a jungle area, a morgue w/ a surprise, a butcher, a barbershop, a graveyard, a maze, a junk yard, a child's room?, a tilted room and a couple of other areas. Limit your group to 5 or less to get full effect. The folks in the back will miss some of the action if the group is too large.
