Visibility/Location: Not hard to find at all. There was a very large lcd or led tv sign that is visable from far down the road.

Wait Entertainment: The line entertianment was great. They were all up in my face and I was very intimidated.

Length of Event: I am not sure mabye 10 15 min.

Actor Performance: I feel that the opening scene was so awsome. The warden was very scary and I loved the opening scene. I had a problem with the overall performance once I got in the actuall haunt. I felt that the actors just were not even trying. They almost seemed like they did not want to be there. I even seen 3 actors on thier cell phones. I want to be fair though because there was a small handful of actors that seemed like they had alot of heart in it but because the rest were not, even the ones that were trying didn't even scare me.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: patron flow was good until I got to the city of the dead but hey it happens from time to time.

Appropriate Ages: I would say 10 and up

Props / Special FX: Special FX OMG statesville hase a great team that works on those scenes. Honestly I can't say I have a favorite as all of the scenes were just amazing

Costumes / Make-up: The make-up and costumes were very well done my favorite is the over grown security officers outside. WOW those guys are very intimidating and the costume and make-up really add to thier presances.

Summary: In summary I feel that if statesville were to get rid of like 80% of its staff and work with just them and not so many people I feel that the haunt would probally be one of Chicagos best haunts (in my opinion). I also feel that $30 dollars a person was a bit expensive for me. If I was a young teen taking my girlfriend out we sure would not be going out to dinner after going to statesville haunted prison and not from the gross factor but the empty wallet factor!! I do want to close with this that I feel unless they change I will not be going back to statesville haunted prison!!!
