| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: Very High | Atmosphere: Very Good|
Visibility/Location: Owaneco is a small town south of Taylorville on Rt 29. There are signs for directions and we had no problem finding it. Parking was also not a problem.
Wait Entertainment: We didn't have much of a wait because we were there when they opened!
Length of Event: It took about 20 minutes to go through, but as I said, we were one of the first through so we didn't have to wait for other groups.
Actor Performance: I think the actors did a great job. There are a number of people involved in this, in the various 'rooms' and I was amazed at some of their costumes and make-up.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Since we were among the first in, we didn't have to wait for another group, but after we finished we sat at one of the tables they had set up and watched/listened to other go through and it seemed that they had a good rhythm going. Small groups and it seemed like plenty of space in between groups.
Appropriate Ages: This is not a place for children. I would say, IF your kids are really into the haunted things, 12 - 13 years old is about the youngest I would take.
Props / Special FX: Awesome vortex! Great artwork in the halls! Freaky clown room! Cool effects! Don't want to give away any surprises!
Costumes / Make-up: Impressive. There was some serious thought in some of those get-ups!
Summary: This is a great haunted house. We heard someone peed their pants and I'm pretty sure I stepped in some puke! One of the things that I thought was cool had nothing to do with the inside of the hh, but instead was their entrance fee. If you took a canned good you got a dollar off your ticket! And the money that is raised goes to help support their town fire department! Great ideas!
Best of luck Owaneco Scare!
