| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: Very High | Atmosphere: Very Good|
Visibility/Location: This is not hard to find after you use your GPS or know Decatur Illinois .. Well marked from the roadside, good parking and no problem.
Wait Entertainment: No wait entertainment tonight - but weak night for crowd. We got right into the attraction with long lines, but this event does draw crowds so on busy nights there is lots to look at before the event and large projection screen, a probably someone walking the lines.
Length of Event: Maybe 20 minutes here, nice length and they use a large portion of the old factory warehouse - there is more here, so maybe the future will increase the size.
Actor Performance: The actors done a very good job and keep it coming throughout the event. There were a few actors who did break character, but they were being helpful in getting you through the attraction, but still like to keep everyone on their marks.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The flow moved well and we had no problems here, this was a light turnout crowd because after the halloween rush but everything was ok.
Appropriate Ages: I would suggest 9 years and above, there are many in your face scares here.
Props / Special FX: Lots of great props and lots to see, everything looked very good to us. The special effects are standard issue fogs and strobes with some very light automaton effects, everything nice.
Costumes / Make-up: Make up, masks and costumes looked very good and we noticed to problems here.
Summary: I don't know the past of this event, but if it's been the Decatur attraction for the last several years we have attended this before, but never in this warehouse location, and yes this is a much better event than I can ever remember. The location is just great and this is said to be a REAL haunted location? We saw no real ghosts or spirits tonight, but this was a very well designed haunted attraction, and everyone was very good with there themes. I also liked the crawling events and tunnels throughout the haunted house, they actually done a good job here.. We will post this as a return event for next year - it was actually that enjoyable ..
