| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: Medium | Atmosphere: Good|
Visibility/Location: Im from Champaign So I knew exactly where the building was, but they could have had a sign on Windor road that could have drawn more attention.
Wait Entertainment: We didnt wait long so we didnt need any..but It would have been nice to see a couple actors roaming the lines maybe they were a little short that night. But I will say it was nice the wait was inside covered and warm, def a plus
Length of Event: 20 Minutes
Actor Performance: I would say they did a good job here. Most all their actors were on que and played there parts well.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Very good. They spaced groups very well we didnt run into a group and no one ran into us. It was also nice because there was no guide which i fell kills the mood.
Appropriate Ages: I would say 10 and up..but that depends on the person, Ive seen people bring 6 year old to haunted houses that wont get scared and Ive also seen 20 year old men screaming their heads off
Props / Special FX: Some rooms were very detailed and had great props while some could have used a little more spiced up but all in all they were good.
Costumes / Make-up: Most of the workers where wearing masks, but they all fit the rooms they where in.
Summary: All in all this was a very good haunted house. For $7 and the length of the event it was very reasonable. They had some great detailed scenes with good actors, Im pretty sure it was right around 20 rooms give or take.. though I did notice a room or two that I didnt see someone in..Im not sure if they were under staffed or the actor missed there que, but It was opening weekend so maybe by the following weekends they will have all the quirks worked out. I talked to the lady that was taking tickets and she told me her brother was the one that puts it on and he had been doing haunted houses for 12 years..not sure where she didnt say but it showed. I will probably go back and visit halloween weekend to see it again and see if things have changed.. I know a lot of haunted houses have their slow nights so I allways try and visit twice. But one again it was a good haunted house you can tell they put alot of work into it, and it was going to a good cause so thats always nice to see. Job well done though.
