Visibility/Location: If you are a local, you should know where it is in pekin. It used to be the old steve and barrys. There is a flashing light on top of the building thats it. It doesn't look like a haunted house attraction at all from the outside.  
If you aren't a local, I couldn't really explain how to get there since I stink at directions! haha but there are no signs notifying you of the haunted house anywhere on the roads.

Wait Entertainment: A clown and mike meyers weaving in and out of lines. Clown was funny and talked to people. Meyers just walked around and didnt say anything. I didn't see any other characters.

Length of Event: extremely short for me. It was about 10 minutes long..maybe even shorter it felt like. I'm used to longer haunted houses so I may be exaggerating a tad.

Actor Performance: I thought the actors were good. Some of them were very creative and creepy. Others were just little kids that didn't scare anyone.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Flow was good. They were good with timing. We didn't run into any groups and they limited only 6 people to a group which was good. We did run into others in a maze since they were lost but thats normal.

Appropriate Ages: 10+

Props / Special FX: No extra neat special effects. Just the usual strobe lights, but those were used creatively. I thought the scenery and props were very good.

Costumes / Make-up: Didn't really pay much attention. I didn't see too much detailed makeup. Costumes were okay nothing out of the ordinary.

Summary: I think this is a good haunted house to go to for a local. I wouldn't drive all the way out here for a 10 minute attraction. The cost was $8. It's a huge improvement from last years dungeon of darkness hosted elsewhere. I think it had a lot of potential to be better, but it was decent. Would I go again? Probably not because I really thought it was so short.
