Visibility/Location: It was very easy to find this amazing home haunt, visible a block away.

Wait Entertainment: There was no wait. If you're lucky you may have had the pleasure of seeing the zombies dance to the beat of ghoulish music.

Length of Event: It took at least 30 minutes to see everything.

Actor Performance: Excellent. The actors stayed in character as they mesmerized, entertained, danced, and scared the crowd.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Great. You were able to move at your own pace to see all the splendor that Mayhem on Mansfield offered in the front, side, and back of the house.

Appropriate Ages: This was definitely a display that was appropriate for all ages.

Props / Special FX: They've got it all including a full cemetery, pirate skeletons, monsters, a madman's laboratory, beautifully carved pumpkins, a spectacular light show, and so much more.

Costumes / Make-up: The awesome costumes and makeup added to the realistic look of the monsters.

Summary: For years, the Lindich family put their heart and soul into creating the ultimate Halloween yard haunt. The inspiration, perspiration, and hard work of our gracious hosts was evident in their amazing masterpieces. You made Burbank a special place to visit. Unfortunately, this was Mayhem on Mansfield's last year. When I think of the best Halloween lawn haunts in Chicagoland I will always remember Mayhem on Mansfield. You will be sorely missed and never forgotten.

Visibility/Location: This haunt was easy to spot from the street.

Wait Entertainment: There were no live actors during our viewing but visitors had the privilege of listening to creepy music and watching undead pop-out pneumatics as they made their way to the mausoleum, a walkway of terror, and the cemetery.

Length of Event: As long as you like.

Actor Performance: N/A

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Great.

Appropriate Ages: A must see for all ages.

Props / Special FX: Creatures, some undead, emerge from tombs, coffins, and the graveyard to pop out at the unsuspecting audience. Some other features included a skeleton blood fountain, an active crematorium, a deranged surgeon and his victim, and so much more.

Costumes / Make-up: N/A

Summary: Doorway to Doom was the brainchild of two men who have masterfully created, built, and animated some of the best creatures and structures I have ever seen. I hope their partnership and this Halloween lawn haunt continue for many years. To appreciate the full scope of this extensive haunt, guests need to observe everything in the front, side, and back of the house. It was definitely worth the trip. I can't wait to see next year's masterpiece.
