Visibility/Location: Easy to find. At the YMCA in Kewanee.

Wait Entertainment: NONE

Length of Event: About half an hour

Actor Performance: Awesome. Very Scary!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Good. We didnt run into anyone else.

Appropriate Ages: 13+

Props / Special FX: Very Good. The scenes were incredibly elaborate. They had a "foil room" and "bubble" room that were very cool.

Costumes / Make-up: Good. Very scary! The people from the "Hocus Pocus" scene looked just like the people from the movie. The guy that was dressed as the joker also looked really good.

Summary: I cant believe how much is in this haunted house especially for the price. It is so elaborate. I wish it was more than just 2 days. They had a very scary room that was dark and there were several people in it who would suddenly just "appear" right by you. It was crazy. Everyone does such a good job in here. It is so scary and definately worth the trip. Everyone should go next year.

Appropriate Ages: 12+

Props / Special FX: Good. The "ghost" in the upstairs room is very creepy. The spinning room is crazy. The 3-D stuff is cool.

Visibility/Location: Really easy to find. It's right on 78 and theres a couple big white signs right out front.

Wait Entertainment: None really. There were a couple ladies dressed as nurses waiting out front, but they didn't really acknowledge us at all.

Length of Event: About 15 min.

Actor Performance: The people inside were very good. The girl in the dark was very creepy.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: It went smoothly.

Appropriate Ages: I'd say 12+

Props / Special FX: The scenes were all very well constructed.

Costumes / Make-up: Very good.

Summary: I enjoyed it. The part that was the scariest was a room with a girl crawling around on the floor and a man screaming at you to get out, but there seems to be no way out. There was also a clown room and a guy with a chainsaw that were pretty scary.
