|Scare Factor: Low | Atmosphere: Fair|
Visibility/Location: Located at the Skokie water park. Be CAREFUL when driving in!! You have to go slow anyways, but there are curves with vegitation and twice 2 preteens jumped out from the bushes and scared me in thinking I might hit them since they were running all around the parking lot and entrance road way. I think that was my scarest part here.
Wait Entertainment: Spent an hour waiting in line. Was able to watch the 2 entertainers scare preteens which was kinda funny? I know this was a town event and thier 2nd time doing it but maybe they should offer a tent with activities for them.
Length of Event: 5 minutes LITERALLY. The whole time our ESCORT from the back kept yelling/telling us and in my ear since I was last (4 peoplein my group) to keep moving along that we were too slow.
Actor Performance: Unfortunately I couldnt tell an actors performance. Im sure there was some but again I was told to move along and even told to exactly what to watch out for.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The patron flow was great since my group went alone and ESCORTED by one of the staff. Seems I am not old enough to go through it alone or my 2 teenage kids and thier friend.
Appropriate Ages: This would have been good or great if it wasnt for the preteens and younger kids hanging around the parking lot. So if better organized 13+
Props / Special FX: Unfortunately couldnt tell. I thought it was cool they had a spinning vortex.
Costumes / Make-up: Only a few costumes I thought was great. The mad giant clown outside, Micheal Myers end of HH tour, and the actors in the dark room with neon dots that you couldnt see.
Summary: The wait in line was im my opinion not worth the 5 minutes I spent going through this event. I cant even call it a HH(HauntedHouse) since I wasnt scared at all. Improvements: NO ESCORT please! maybe have people strategiclly located INSIDE to help with patron flow like other haunted houses. I was told by someone who works there they were doing this cause the younger kids would freeze up inside. Still maybe a matinee one for them. Like I said earlier I know I spent exactly 5 minutes going through and unfortunately had to look down the whole time since out escort was herding us along and yelling at us that we were too slow. I even had to yell back at her to chill out! I did 3 activites this evening, this being the second I feel bad I cant give it a better review. GL in working the kinks out and I may check you out in 2 years.
