Visibility/Location: Location was easy to find and they had enough parking lot/space and best of all it was FREE.

Wait Entertainment: waiting was about 15 - 20 minutes but I was with family & friends that time wasn't an issue and besides they had a television set up (trivia question)and they were selling food & candies.

Length of Event: Time was fine can't remember how long it took us from in to out, but I liked it because no one was rushing us and we went in small groups.  

Actor Performance: the actors were good some were pretty convincing and scarry others were pretty average. I like that everything was dark (inside the haunted house) and I had to touch the wall not to fall.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: I think everyone did a good job with organizing this event, there was team work and also, securities.

Appropriate Ages: I think anyone from 7 yrs old can go if they are with adults or friend of 10+.

Props / Special FX: all props were very good, i have a few but you have to go and see for yourself.

Costumes / Make-up: like i said before some costumes were pretty good other not so good. (but the ones that looked good were totally awsome!)

Summary: I really think is a great haunted house and price is great. I been too a lot of haunted houses and won't mention names but i paid a lot and suppose to be one of the best and believe me I was very dissapointed, because they would send you in big group and thats a no no.. Here at Saint Pascal's Haunted House I was with my group and it was just great.

Visibility/Location: Very easy to find its on Irving Park. Its located at a school/church and i am very familiar with the area. Alot of decorations out front cant miss it.

Wait Entertainment: I have been their every year and usually they are many monsters will waiting but i only seen one. Also their is a constecion stand with very reasonable prices.

Length of Event: It was about 15 minutes long. But because their wasnt many people they let us go again for Free which was very nice.

Actor Performance: They were good but i was with my girlfriend and they did have some small talk.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Good i never encountered a group infront of inback of me.

Appropriate Ages: I think they had a sign that said 6 years or older not allowed with a parent but in my 2nd group their was a daughter about 4. But good for most ages

Props / Special FX: They had some new stuff. I dotn want to spoil it ( They had a clostophobia ) kinda thing which was my first time seeing that and that made the haunted house even better.

Costumes / Make-up: They did good. Most costumes where with masks i didnt see no makeup but they had the typical scream and micheal.

Summary: Very good event for the season. Great for kids. If you go online you can get a 1.00 Off so regular is 7.00 and w/ coupon 6.00 worth the money. Cant wait till next year

Visibility/Location: It's hard to miss, especially if you know where Saint Pascal's is.

Wait Entertainment: There wasn't much for wait entertainment, just a haunted soundtrack, one actor briefly stopped in, and the old schoolhouse atmosphere. This could benefit greatly from turning down the lights in the school, even just a little bit would make a huge difference.

Length of Event: Probably ten minutes or so, but no less.

Actor Performance: Pretty solid for opening night.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Very good. We had a small transition issue near the beginning, but it wasn't a problem at all and didn't hurt the experience.

Appropriate Ages: Depends, I'd guess 10+ maybe.

Props / Special FX: Very resourceful and cool for a charity haunt. They also had a great new effect, just as good as Dream Reapers new one. 
 
The best effect is the overall scare factor they are able to achieve in the dark, dank basement.

Costumes / Make-up: Pretty standard, but everything worked for sure. Lots of masks, which looked good in the dark atmosphere

Summary: I've been attending Pascal's for many years now, since I was kid. Year after year they deliver one of my favorite houses. Something about the feel of the place, it just is more exciting than most out there, and my group agrees.  
 
For only $7 this is a great deal. If you use the coupon on the web site, it's only $6. That's hard to beat. 
 
My main criticism is that in the school, and in the waiting area, the light is just too bright. After being in that great, almost ominous courtyard, they bring you into a pre-show waiting area. This area was too bright, should've been dark, and had an inappropriate techno soundtrack. Change those things, keep in darker and spookier, and to me you have one of the most best shows in the Chicago area for a great price.
