| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: High | Atmosphere: Good|
Visibility/Location: Across from SuperWal-Mart in Pekin - not hard to find when you see it .. Flashing lights and large display (non-lite) sign on building .
Wait Entertainment: A few crazy clowns walking throughout the lines.. The one clown in black and white is overall the most interacting one and no doubt holds a lot of weight in this attraction, he does a great job.
Length of Event: The length is almost acceptable here, more later.
Actor Performance: Everyone done a average to fair job with the exception of the front nurse, crazy doctor, and the clowns ..
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The flow moved along ok, no real troubles after you enter the event.. The waiting lines however do move somewhat slower than they should ..
Appropriate Ages: I would say that young kids shouldn't have too much trouble with this event.. They would like to think the event at 10 years old and above, but it just seemed that young crowd could do this .
Props / Special FX: Lots of standard haunted house props with some creative work thrown in - they seemed to have good enough surroundings to pull this event off and yes it works.
Costumes / Make-up: Masks and costumes worked ok, but some actors were done very good and other just weak to very weak and poor, they need to up this event in masks , costumes, and make-up.
Summary: This years attraction is much better than last year event, much improved layout and surroundings improved considerably ! The theme of this years attraction is nice and yes it does start off ok with everything pointed toward that situation, and for a short time it works.
Now for the event overall, first problem is that this is a $10.00 haunted attraction that is $5.00 overpriced and forget about paying extra for an advanced pass or anything like that, keep your money or wait until the line shortens. They do control line flow to a slower rate to add more line length to sell the event better, we were like 35 in the line and waited over thirty minutes . We enjoyed the new changed here and it was ok, except for a blown fuse downtime, but they still done there best here. Only issue here is do not try to pay off all the new additions in the first year at rasing the rates way too much in the first year!
