Actor Performance: POOR! One of the "wait" actors was flirting with the girl selling tickets. Inside the house the actors were NOT acting, and didn't know if I was a customer or a "worker" as a result many were AFRAID to scare me. One actor with his mask off asked me, "are you part of a group." I told hime " I was my own group". He threw his mask back on and tried to get into character, but I had already passed him.

Summary: This is a low budget haunt that I visit every year for a "laugh". I don't expect much from it, because it's run by a park district, and employs mostly young teens. The house itslef isn't bad layout wise. The spinning vortex is the first room, and I've never seen that used as an opening scene at any haunt. I thought that was cool. The props and make up are a huge step down from larger haunts, but acceptable. Again, the house itself wasn't bad, but the acting, and timing of props was lousy. Maybe becuase it was their opening night. If your looking for a cheap haunt, or have kids that want to go, then this is the house for you.
