| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: Very High | Atmosphere: Very Good|
Visibility/Location: Right on a main road through town, had signs out front and two hearses, cant miss it if you know about where it is.
Wait Entertainment: I am going to say we had to wait, but it wasnt bad because there was plenty of action going on, a skeleton guy with a chainsaw had some running clear out to the parking lot, and a tall thin clown was joining in too. A reaper looking guy was really creepy and smooth, he would end up behind folks without them knowing, it was halarious to watch some of this action.
Length of Event: 20 to 30 minutes
Actor Performance: I dont like those guys! I am not all that jumpy but they get me and my company pretty good seemed like when we was getting a break we got nailed again, and two little boys was acting out a fight then they turned on our group, yelling and coming at us, Im still snickering just thinking about them.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: we had a group come up behind us but we were moving rather slow, and they were moving a hundred miles per hour scared to death, so we let them pass us.
Appropriate Ages: 11 and over??
Props / Special FX: Some well detailed scenes, we would try to kind of look at the detailing but couldnt really because of the commotion, I dont want to give too many details but I really liked the light and sound show, alot of differnt themes and scenes from scarey movies, the animals are cool, and the ending was kind of mind boggling.
Costumes / Make-up: I think the ones I had time to see was really good.
Summary: Well I must admit I am new to Haunted Il. never heard of it until last week, but we do like to visit haunted houses and I was told about this site to look for prospects.
The Scream of Decatur, I had no complains about, they were very busy at the time we was there, and some of the line was a little unruley, but their people got it under control quickly, I have no regrets over going there, or spending the amout I paid for six of us to go in. I know I dont get too jumpy but I was gotten quite a few times, and it seemed to be easy for them to do. I know this is the first year for this place after talking to a guard out side when we were leaving and I think this is a great haunted house.
I read the reviews before I posted this one, and I can only say I was surprized to see what I read, I dont knopw what could of happened between the time those review givers went through this place and when we did, but I will say I dont agree.
