Visibility/Location: Not much signage from North Ave/64, however, there were two giant inflatable flailing tube men outside to attract your attention.

Wait Entertainment: There was a hillbilly, a boar? on stilts, and a few other characters keeping crowd control. There was a garbage can fire and heavy rock and metal music playing to also keep your ears entertained.

Length of Event: Depends on how fast you walk but for us, 20 minutes

Actor Performance: Excellent, right on cue every time. Of course my girlfriend who isn't scared of anything was walking ahead of everyone so she got all the immidiate scares but i saw all of them and they did a fantastic job.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Very good. We didn't run into any groups, however, a group did run into us.

Appropriate Ages: I wouldn't recommend anyone younger than 10 but then again, you will get 6 year olds afraid of nothing and 30 year olds who won't walk through the front door.

Props / Special FX: Amazing. The scenes were so incredibly detailed that i was more caught up in that than the actors. Every scene had it's appropriate detail.

Costumes / Make-up: Perfected. There was a little boy done up with a sewn shut mouth looking like a cannibal. The clowns were appropriate. All of the costumes were amazing.

Summary: Overall, this haunt was worth it. From the little surprise when buying your ticket to the ending room with the psychotic madman. I had never seen a haunt quite like it. It's only 3 miles from Eleventh hour and only 6 miles from Lombard Jaycees haunted house so we were conveniently able to hit all three of those houses in one night.
