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!

Visibility/Location: We knew where this event was because we attended it last year -its really not hard to find if you follow the signs. There is a big flashing sign at the entrance of the campground.

Wait Entertainment: We heard ALOT of screaming coming from the woods - we had about an 1 1/2 wait and just the screams from the woods were freaking us out

Length of Event: This year the trail was about 20-25 minutes. It was really dark that night and we couldn't see anything -even with a flashlight - that's how dark it can get in the woods- CREEPY!!!!

Actor Performance: The actor performance was way better than last year - the scenes were simply amazing with great detail and great scares. They even had props and things hanging in the woods between scenes. The actors were all on time and really knew their parts.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: We didn't run into any other groups but could see a group in the distance coming out screaming which made us wonder if we should turn back

Appropriate Ages: I would recommend 13 and older like their website says.

Props / Special FX: Like I said the props and scenes were awesome!! I loved the movie monster scene and the old christmas house! The two graveyards were detailed so realisticaly. I don't know how the one review could even call it a low-budget haunt?????? What?

Costumes / Make-up: The costumes and makeup really fit into every scene. They used a nice variety of makeup, masks and a few other surprises.

Summary: I have been a huge fan of the trail of screams for several years and this year did not disappoint at all. We had just come from the Fear Asylum in belvidere and it was awesome to see the variety in the haunts when you come from an asylum to the creepy woods and not a scene repeated. These guys are truly professionals that deliver a top notch attraction every year. Thanks so much for putting the SCARE in us!! We are planning on going to the Screamatorium next weekend! 
GREAT JOB GUYS!!!!
