|Scare Factor: Very High | Atmosphere: Very Good|
Visibility/Location: It's hard to see, but everyone should know where the old Lake County Fairgrounds are at, so it's easy to find.
Wait Entertainment: The actors they have there seem to come out of no where. One moment your talking to your friend, the next there is a clown behind you! It was quite a wait at that time, though the video clips helped to pass the time.
Length of Event: 20-25 minutes?
Actor Performance: The actors were excellent, they all staye din character and knew the exact moments to come out and scare us. I swear I'm still trying to figure out where half of them came from! I turned my head for just a moment and when I looked back, there was a skull in my face! They all did a great job!
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: It was pretty good. We ran into the group ahead of us, but I think there was a problem or something. They got moving and one of the actors had us wait and proceeded to work on the rest of the group before letting us move on. Very good of them. We didn't see them until that fence maze, but that was by seeing them through the fencing. We grouped up in that frankenstien room and were together from there, but I think it's supposed ot be that way.
Appropriate Ages: 13+ only. With all the makeup and blood and stuff, the little ones will have nightmares.
Props / Special FX: The props were used rather well. Some didn't seem to scary, but they were distracting long enough for the actor to appear and get you. Eitherway, they did good. Loved those spinning tubes!
Costumes / Make-up: The cotumes all seemed to match the themes of the rooms well. And the bloody make up was great, especially in that hospital. The clowns looked none too friendly either.
Summary: Overall it was quite a wait, so show up early, otherwise dress warm and be ready to wait. Without a doubt it was worth it and although they raised the price, it seems longer than the previous years and well worth it. I'd go back again with more friends if any were brave enough to go. Can't wait to see what they do next year!
