Visibility/Location: Off the Main St. in Mt. Carroll. Easy to find. Awesome town as well!

Length of Event: Around one and half hours.

Actor Performance: Jim is crazy creative, actually scary in a funny way!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: We were the only group!

Appropriate Ages: All, the guide suits the tour to the group...

Props / Special FX: Very awesome creative atmostphere, hard to explain, and I'll never see anything like that again.

Summary: My husband and I went to Mt. Carroll for The Raven's Grin Inn for our 7th wedding anniversary. We stayed in a cabin at the Timbercreek Resort. And we love the Raven's Grin. We left feeling like what the h--e--double-hockey-sticks (censored) just happened? We loved this town and this place is a special haunted place that you have to see!

Visibility/Location: Once you're in Mt. Carroll, the Raven's Grin isn't hard to find.

Wait Entertainment: While there is no wait entertainment, the house itself will make up for that.

Length of Event: About an Hour and 30 minutes.

Actor Performance: The acting is top notch at the Raven's Grin. Since it's a guided tour, you're with the "Actors" almost all of the time. Most of them are, believable, funny, and overall entertaining.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Very good, we never ran into another group. Let alone, heard another one.

Summary: The Raven's Grin is a total package all around. It's has it's scares, it's humor, and it's interesting from the beginning to the end. Defiantly worth $12 and worth more to be honest. The Raven's Grin is one of a kind experience.

Visibility/Location: Awesome location! This is a spooky-looking old house at the end of a dead-end street surrounded by trees.

Wait Entertainment: None

Length of Event: It was about an hour and a half long

Actor Performance: The actors did a good job, but the owner Jim was the best.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: It was a guided tour, so flow was good.

Summary: The Raven's Grin is a cool place. Not only is it a "haunted house", apparently it is supposed to really be haunted. The wine cellar is the creepiest part of the whole tour!
