Visibility/Location: off the beaten path a little outside of Herrin.

Wait Entertainment: None

Length of Event: about 10 minutes

Actor Performance: high school kids.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: ok

Appropriate Ages: any

Props / Special FX: basic stuff. Nothing special

Costumes / Make-up: like halloween costumes from walmart

Summary: Really low budget and not real creative for all the advertising that they do. We were not really impressed at all. not that much different than it was the last couple of years. Not worth the money.

Visibility/Location: Out in the country. Very dark. Signs pointed us in the right direction, but we have been there the last 4 years, so we knew how to get there.

Wait Entertainment: movie in a covered wait building and a crazy clown running around, he/she/it scared the people before back into the car and they did not go through.

Length of Event: 15-20 minutes, lost track.

Actor Performance: top notch! Maybe too good.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: We did not see any other groups.

Appropriate Ages: probably over 10 or 11.

Props / Special FX: the usuall, plus lots of air blowing at you and things that startle you like sirens ect. cool flame effects in the long h--e--double-hockey-sticks (censored) scene.

Costumes / Make-up: good mix of make up and differnet masks and the tall 10 foot tall monster thing got us.

Summary: A little better every year. this year there was a lot of different stuff, like ramps going up stairs and a ramp that seemed to go underground for the h--e--double-hockey-sticks (censored) scene. You never knew if you were up or down, inside or out. You keep going in and out of the barn. a good gory scene near the end with a guy playing with guts and stuff, well done and worth the drive.
