Visibility/Location: Big signs with stobe lights out front. Great location, right off the main road.

Wait Entertainment: Good, monsters greeted us as we drove in.

Length of Event: Didn't really keep track of time, but would estimate between 15 & 20 min.

Actor Performance: Scared the pants off of our entire group. However a few didn't seem to be as into their role as the others.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Excellent, never saw another group.

Appropriate Ages: Hard to say, there are some startling scares. I would estimate 11 and older.

Props / Special FX: The props were top notch. The Dungeon itself was the best special effect. I felt like I was in a dungeon.

Costumes / Make-up: Costumes and make up were great. It was hard to tell masks from make up.

Summary: There was a group of 8 of us and the general consensus among us was this place is awesome. Dungeon of Darkness...they aren't kidding! Some parts are very dark but very scary! Scary noises & actors come out of nowhere. We were screaming from the time we walked in until we were laughing & screaming on our way out. Not to mention some very cool suprises inside. Was definitly worth the drive. Be advised, this place is scary, I would not recommend this for children under 11 without a parent.

Visibility/Location: Off the beaten path but easy to find, lots of signs leading you in.

Wait Entertainment: Great! Very creative, these guys put a lot of thought into their show.

Length of Event: About 20 min.

Actor Performance: Awesome, everyone seemed to be well into their roles.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Very good! We didn't run into any other people.

Appropriate Ages: Difficult to say, alot of this place is very scary!

Props / Special FX: WOW! Lots to see here, scares around every corner & tons and tons of special effects.

Costumes / Make-up: Make up and costumes were both excellent. A few were so we thought were props, turned out to be an actor...Awseome scare!

Summary: This place is a must go to for the Halloween season. A scare around every corner, very busy this place. You may have to go through twice to see it all. But just like the Dungeon of Darkness that I went to earlier in the evening, this place is very scary and would probably not recommend it to kids under 11 without a parent. I'm glad to see that So. IL. is getting some scary haunts.

Visibility/Location: A little difficult to find, but not to bad.

Wait Entertainment: None to speak of. And the wait was ridiculus for the entertainment dollar.

Length of Event: Seemed to be about 10 min. or so. Not too sure.

Actor Performance: Don't you mean kids performance? For their age I would say the actor performance was good. However, how scary can kids be? Unless they have your credit card...

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Seemed to be ok.

Appropriate Ages: All ages

Props / Special FX: Props seemed to be very ok. Nothing seemed to have changed from last year, everything just got moved around.

Costumes / Make-up: I read some other reviews and I have to agree...Wal Mart probably needs to restock.

Summary: If you have nothing better to do on a Saturday night and there isn't anything on TV, this would be a good place to take your kids to give them something to do. However as an adult, I was thoroughly disappointed. AGAIN! This place is not scary what so ever. I probably won't be back. Chittyville, for all the advertising you do, you should be better than this.
