Visibility/Location: A little bit off the beaten path. just look for the sign.

Wait Entertainment: Very good!! lots to look at and interact with.

Length of Event: about 20 minutes start to end. the wait was about 15.

Actor Performance: I visit a lot of haunted houses and dream reapers is always top notch. their actors always have a lot to say.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: good. although it wasnt a very busy night.

Appropriate Ages: 11+ or so

Props / Special FX: AMAZING!!! i would probably pay just to see the detail. they really do whisp you away from the outside world while you are there.

Costumes / Make-up: very good. i don't like the too many bruises and blood... but i really liked the masks some of the creatures were wearing!

Summary: dream reapers is always a really fun place to go. i live in central illinois but it is always worth the drive. i really get entertained for my money!!! it'll be on my list to visit again next year again.

Visibility/Location: Not too hard to find. right off route 31.

Wait Entertainment: good. lots of interaction.

Length of Event: about 15 to 20 minutes start to finish.

Actor Performance: very good. the actors were convincing and some were downright creepy.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: didn't run into any other groups. it was a slow night though.

Appropriate Ages: 10+

Props / Special FX: this is always my only major gripe. the entire place is blood blood guts blood. but people most people like blood i guess so it works.

Costumes / Make-up: very good. i would say a lack of variety but well done nonetheless. again too much blood for my taste.

Summary: i visit a lot of haunted houses and this one was very well done. one of the better haunts i frequent. my only gripe was the lack of variety in scenes and people. everything was saturated in blood. this probably works well for teenagers but not a slow looker like me. good haunt though! worth the drive.
