Visibility/Location: It's pretty easy to find -just look for the flashing sign on N. Main street and follow the winding road

Wait Entertainment: I liked the tall monster on stilts- he was chasing people around the parking lot and alot of them were jumping into their cars. Michael Meyers did a great job too. They had loud music out in front that kept the crowd entertained. They also had pizza, pop and other things to satisfy your hunger.

Length of Event: It took our group about 25 minutes to get through. It may be longer for some groups since there is no one to lead you this year.

Actor Performance: All the actors were EXCELLENT! They must have had a ton of caffine that night. They never broke character in any scene and displayed a high energy level throughout the entire trail. The clowns in both scenes were awesome. Some of the best and professional acting I have scene in a haunted house in a long time. Great job to all of you!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: We really didn't run into any other groups but had a group walk with use because their flash light wasn't working. Even though we had two groups end up at the scenes at one time the actors handled it perfectly. Thank God for no guides - we loved it

Appropriate Ages: Like the warning says not recommended for 13 and under - I AGREE!

Props / Special FX: The detail and props were just amazing. I can't even describe it - you have to check it out!

Costumes / Make-up: The costumes and makeup were very professional and complimented every scene. Some scenes had the simplist makeup to the most gruesome detailed makeup I have seen. The doctor's makeup was amazing - I would love to know how they did that!

Summary: Kudos to everyone at TOS this year! You guys really stepped it up about 20 times and really scared the living crap out of us! If you haven't checked out this event it's your loss - it's just amazing. I can't wait to see what they come up with next season.

Visibility/Location: This was a little harder to find than the one in Rockford. If you follow the signs from Kishwaukee road you shouldn't have a problem.

Wait Entertainment: There really wasn't any wait entertainment when we arrived. It was a little early so I don't know what happended later in the night.

Length of Event: About 20 minutes

Actor Performance: The actors did a really great job of scaring our group. They were professional and knew how to scare us to death. Not one actor every broke character and the little girl in the school room was sooooo creepy -she really scared our group when she jumped out. The guy at the end chased us to the entrance - that was a moment to remember.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Since we got there when they had just opened there wasn't much of a wait. We never ran into another group on the trail, but we were literally running throughout most of it.

Appropriate Ages: 14+

Props / Special FX: The scenes were very professional looking with alot of detail from what we could see. It is so dark out there you really can't see in front of you. That was scary in itself.

Costumes / Make-up: The costumes and makeup were very well done and very realistic. I liked the guy with chainsaw by the schoolhouse - his face was so creepy.

Summary: If you want to be scared than check out Trail of Screams 2 in Stillman Valley. This place not only has a great haunt but great atmosphere as well. It's definitely worthe $8 admission this year! We enjoyed it so much we went to Trail of Screams in Rockford too.
