|Scare Factor: Very High | Atmosphere: Very Good|
Visibility/Location: We came from out of town so we mapquested it and we only got lost once. The camp is not hard to find if you follow the signs.
Wait Entertainment: When our group arrived they had a LONG line and we were told it was about an hour hour wait. There wasn't any wait entertainment but they did have a nice concession area. We warmed up on hot chocolate and listened to creepy music before we entered the trail.
Length of Event: It was about 20 minutes. I guess it depends if you get lost on the trail or how fast or slow you run.
Actor Performance: Was EXCELLENT! We had 8 people in our group and one person was given a flashlight to guide the way. We have attended the trail before in Rockford and I must say I like this idea much better than having guides take you through. The actors all stayed in character and some of them were in-your-face while others were just creeping us out. The monster on stilts SCARED us to death -he was the BEST!!!!!
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: We never ran into any other group on the trail but we could hear ALOT of screaming.
Appropriate Ages: Definitely 13 and older like the warning says.
Props / Special FX: The scenes were very detailed and the opening scene was AMAZING! They had a nice mix of detail and plain black areas. The lighting really added to the overall creepy atmosphere and the music they had playing in each scene did too.
Costumes / Make-up: The makeup that the actors had was very professional looking and fit nicely into the scene they were in.
Summary: We have never been disappointed in the trail of screams. They always do a professional job at this attraction and this year proved no different. I would truly recommend attending this event. You will not be disappointed and you will be scared to death!
