Visibility/Location: This Haunt is located in a small town, so it was a little hard to find, but once we got there we had no trouble.

Wait Entertainment: Great! After purchasing your tickets, they have many Halloween activities set up as well as a Hayrack ride that brings you through a real cemetary and delivers you to the Haunt.

Length of Event: Haunted House length was around 5min., but the Hayrack ride to, and from, the HH added another 20min.

Actor Performance: Great! They had a lot of HS teen actors, plus a few adults, but.. all in all, they really had great enthusiam!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Very good. We never ran into another group, however my one critism of this haunt, was that our group was too large. We were at the back of our group and we had a couple of rooms where the scares occured before we even entered the room and missed the action.

Appropriate Ages: This was an overall very "family friendly" event!

Props / Special FX: Amazingly good for such a small event! They had a nice mix of great scenes, lighting fx, and really nice artwork throughout the HH.

Costumes / Make-up: Nice mix btw masked and make-up charactars.

Summary: Hands down the best HH we went to this evening, of the 3 we visited, due to the amazingly low price of $1!! It's hard to believe that they make any money off of this.. but if they continue to put on this event we will be back next year! 
Kudos to the staff of "Downs HH" for a great Halloween experience for the whole family!!

Visibility/Location: The Haunted House is right off of the Interstate (I74)

Wait Entertainment: They did not have a lot of outside entertainment but about one every 15 minutes a creature would come out and make an appearance plus there were creatures learking in the nearby park.

Length of Event: about 5 minutes

Actor Performance: Very good and they went to the extreme to make sure the timing of the scare was perfect.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The inside flow was very good, our group never caught up with the group in front of us.

Appropriate Ages: I would huess 8-20

Props / Special FX: Most of the props are handmade but they are very creative and used a lot of special features. A few hydraulic animations which helped make the scare even better.

Costumes / Make-up: I would say a 10 on make up and a 6 on costumes.

Summary: The house is only one dollar to go through and with the admission you get a free hay rack ride (buy your tickets at the park not at the Haunted House) and you get a hot dog to roast plus marshmellow and soda. They also had other food you cold buy like Walking Tacos, Chili and more.
