Visibility/Location: This haunt was very easy to find since we are from the area. It is actually at a park district which is right off the main road in Belvidere.

Wait Entertainment: We didn't see any wait entertainment but the door man was really creepy. My friends started screaming before we even got to the door. When we finally got in the ticket taker really set the mood for the haunt - creeped us out!

Length of Event: About 15 minutes. The last part of the haunt we were all running so its really hard to say.

Actor Performance: The actors were VERY INTeNSE AND IN YOUR FACE. The creators really brought back some old up close and inyour face scares at this haunt which we loved.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: We never ran into any other group but we could DEFINITELY hear ALOT of screaming!!!!!

Appropriate Ages: Becuase of the intensity I would say 14 & up.

Props / Special FX: The scenes were all really creepy and had alot of variety. I loved the fact that they incorporated a clown scene into this since it is really a hospital or medical themed. Good job! The use of black lights, strobes and fog machines was excellent - it really added to the whole feel.

Costumes / Make-up: All the actors had AWESOME makeup and costumes - The doctor and the guy with the cast looked soooooo creepy - I won't give anything away but the end scene was great! We also really liked the satan scene.

Summary: This haunt is new for the Trail of screams creators and once again they out did themselves and brought another excellent attraction to the area. I have not been to the trail or the Screamatorium yet this year but am definitely planning on going.You guys are the BEST!!!!

Visibility/Location: This attraction was very easy to find. They had signs entering the park and it was very well lit up.

Wait Entertainment: I didn't see any wait entertainment but there was quite a few people in line when we arrived.

Length of Event: About 15 from the time you enter and get your rules but it could be shorter depending on how fast you can run and get out of there.

Actor Performance: was 100%!!!!!! All the actors were aggressive and screaming and never once backed down. They really made you feel like you were in an asylum.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Very good - never ran into any other group but could hear alot of screaming.

Appropriate Ages: definitely 13 and older - don't bring little kids

Props / Special FX: There wasn't alot of props but there wasn't a need for alot - a few rooms were detailed very nicely and just the use of lighting, fog and sound effects and 3d effects was AWESOME!!!!

Costumes / Make-up: The costumes and makeup complimented every actor - the doctor looked really creepy and the guy at the end was too! My friend got so scared she bolted down the exit hallway and out the front door!

Summary: Overall I give them 2 thumbs up!! For the first year they did an amazing job - I didn't expect to be let down. You can tell alot of thought and work went into this haunt and I can't wait to see what they come up with for next year!
