Visibility/Location: Easy to find. I found the listing on HauntedIllinois.com and I live close to the area so I decided to check it out.

Wait Entertainment: There was no waiting, but there was alot of ghouls waiting to scare you.

Length of Event: Depends on how long you want to stay.

Actor Performance: Very good! I enjoyed the execution scene inside of the jailcell. The guy & girl inmates were good actors and even scared me! Jason put on a great performance too. He even chased our car with a chainsaw as we left! There were alot of different characters walking around. Some of them blended in with the props to scare you which was cool.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Good.

Appropriate Ages: All, as long as they are able to handle getting scared.

Props / Special FX: There is alot to look at. The props were awesome and looked like hard work and expensive.

Costumes / Make-up: Freddy, Jason, clowns, inmates, a crazy looking thing with a knife, and some hidden scares. It was well done.

Summary: It was alot of fun. Definitly worth the time to stop by. We will be going back on Halloween as long as the weather is good! Great job. One of the best yard displays and free haunted event on the southside.

Visibility/Location: Location of the home was easy to find with directions. Also very visible due to decorations!

Wait Entertainment: There was no wait. Attraction was open to everyone!

Length of Event: My children and I stayed around 15 minutes.

Actor Performance: Excellent live entertainment!!! The actors were one of the best parts of this attraction! "Jason" scared everyone out of their pants with a real (but safe) chainsaw! "Freddy", "Jiggsaw", "Pinhead", evil clowns and more had excellent interaction with guests and delivered a ''for-profit type haunted house'' scare for free! There was also a scary execution scene within a jailcell with excellent actors! Actors also approached cars and chased after people, but did a professional job of keeping their hands to themselves and still delivering a chilling scare!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: There was many other guests, but it was not over-crowded. Everything ran smoothly and everyone got their chance to be scared!

Appropriate Ages: If they are brave, let them come! Otherwise, I would recommend this for ages 12 & up. However, when little children approached, the actors eased up the scare factor which was very nice of them!

Props / Special FX: Amazing!!! I was told that the son of the house created alot of the props by hand. They looked store-bought! There was also many actual store-bought props that looked professional! The entire yard of the home was filled with props and even extended onto their neighbors property! Special FX effects such as strobe lights, black lights, many other colored lighting and sound effects left an errie feel to go with the scenery!

Costumes / Make-up: Very Spooky!

Summary: My children and I enjoyed this attraction very much! One of my daughters was scared enough to the point where she would not exit our vehicle! This house was by far the best yard display and free haunt attraction I have been to!

Visibility/Location: Easy to find. You could see it from 2 blocks away.

Wait Entertainment: No waiting.

Length of Event: We were there for approx  
20 mins.

Actor Performance: Superb. Many different monsters scared the stuffing out of us. The actors in the jailcell were very talented. There was a scare waiting to get you with each step you took.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Good, not too crowded.

Appropriate Ages: 13 & up. It is pretty scary, like a haunted house. If you are older, they will scare you pretty bad. However, the actors were cautious when dealing with young children. They offered handshakes and high-fives so the little ones were not as scared. Some even removed their masks to show they were not real monsters.

Props / Special FX: Many, many, many props. There is alot to look at. Spooky sound effects aswell.

Costumes / Make-up: Very creepy!

Summary: My wife and I and our kids enjoyed this house very much. You could tell alot of time and effort went into the yard display. The actors were very professional and very scary. They could have charged admission if they wished to; it would have been worth it! However the event was free and very exciting. If they have it again next year, I will be attending again.
