Visibility/Location: Off main street a litte hard to find...Parking is tough

Wait Entertainment: Jeepers Creepers and children of the corn played on a television

Length of Event: 20 minutes roughly

Actor Performance: They dont do a lot of scripted interaction but what they do works very well

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: It is the most time I jave ever had to enjoy the stunning rooms they have. Fantastic

Appropriate Ages: 7 and up..small kids will be scared almost anywhere

Props / Special FX: Loaded... eye candy everywhere

Costumes / Make-up: Not so much...good enough

Summary: This is a different haunt then Dream Reapers, Creature Cryptmaze type layouts. It is an old building where you make your way from room to room. The exsits and entrances are brilliant. The execution of each room is similar, but the room creates enough variety that you are never sure whats coming. They have a vortex tunnel, they have a high dollar prop that greets you.....It is a fantastic top 10 Illinois haunt....go there

Visibility/Location: No sign on route 30 to direct you the haunt. Poorly lite sign out front

Wait Entertainment: None

Length of Event: 10-15 minutes

Actor Performance: simple walking out of corners with no lines spoken

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The maze could become a nightmare to navigate if there were a lot of people. Otherwise straight forward

Appropriate Ages: 7 and up

Props / Special FX: poorly done. The exorcist scene was in obvious need of repair. The ring scene was good

Costumes / Make-up: a couple scenes were average, the rest were cheap masks with no attempt to meld together a costume.

Summary: I will give them some what of a break since it was the first year in a new location. They will need massive improvements over the next year to earn the entry fee.

Visibility/Location: small town, fairgrounds is on one of the main roads

Wait Entertainment: We were harrassed by four different stalkers from the time we entered the lot. It was great. Jason was cool!

Length of Event: we spent about 30 minuted total

Actor Performance: A few sma,,er kids were lame, but you could tell that some of the older actors had done this before. Overall pretty good.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: They are split between two barns, but we never waited long.

Appropriate Ages: 8 on up

Props / Special FX: The first barn had most of the animated.Not the real high dollar but very effective.

Costumes / Make-up: A lot of masks, although the entrance actors were made up.

Summary: I thought parts of this were the best I have seen. They have a hayrack ride that needs work. The 3D room is animated leading to the vortex tunnel. AWESOME. I loved the momma alien from the films. The second barn was more like last year. The maze was mind bending with creatures growling and snarling the whole way. It did have some dead spots that need something better. The soul game in the middle was freaky. Good Job guys.
