Visibility/Location: Great location and easy to find.

Wait Entertainment: None

Length of Event: It took about 8 minutes to go through.

Actor Performance: Pathetic at best! Very inexperienced. Thumbs down for one of the key factors of a great haunted house.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: It went very fast. I felt hurried through.

Appropriate Ages: 5-10 yrs old. I took my 12 yr old nephew and he laughed through the whole thing.

Props / Special FX: Very store bought. Little creativity. I felt like I was in a Halloween store.

Costumes / Make-up: I hoped to see gore but all i saw were white faces. Where is the flesh rips, tears and special FX that make a haunted house great. this area seemed to be overlooked or maybe deemed not important which is a grave mistake! no pun intended.

Summary: Very expensive. No scare factor at all. The acting and make-up of the ghouls, ghosts, and monsters are truly the most important parts of a haunted house and I feel these areas were overlooked which caused for a very disappointing walk through of what seemed to be a showroom from a halloween store. With so much competition for haunted houses in illinois you would think more creativity would be put into the scare factor or at least the eye candy factor but that doesn't happen with this half hearted endevour. The only time a teen would scare me by being on their cell phone is when I'm paying the bill!!
