| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: Medium | Atmosphere: Very Good|
Visibility/Location: Scares on Sequoia is a fun home haunt and easy to find. 3 blocks south of 151st in Orland Park offering plenty of street parking. The yard and driveway is very well lit with numerous colors and quite noticeable off the main road Larkspur.
Wait Entertainment: No wait. Traditional home haunt, probably busier on Fri and Sat nites...
Length of Event: 10 minutes
Actor Performance: There was the proprietor along with a couple of younger boys all dressed up in costumes scaring the crowd.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Scares offers a nice graveyard visible from the sidewalk and then there are rooms covered by a tent all decorated with different themes. There were zombies, witches and a butcher shop. Even a small pirate ship. Also a cool setup on the porch with Michale Myers, a Grim Reapor and some zombie babies.
Appropriate Ages: All ages
Props / Special FX: Pop up zombie got me both times. Electrical wires zapping and fog in the zombie section was my favorite. Also, a Jason Voorhees in the distance in the yard was cool. Numerous animatronics!
Costumes / Make-up: Kids were dressed in masks and weapons. Loved the boy in the clown mask with shoulder pads!
Summary: We visited this haunt in 2014 and liked it so we came back. This year, they added so much that we will stop by again to check it out. The owner built the cemetery entrance and it looks so real! Nice scares from the panels that drop down! We really like the homemade spooky tree lit up! Funny gravestones! Zombie scene was my favorite. Numerous animatronics in that room (crawling zombie, throw up Gus, pop up zombie, walker in the back) plus good fog machine action! The witches den had so many decorations! The mirrors and hands coming out of the wall were super creepy! The butcher shop was really cool too! Leatherface and a Frankenstein featured there with your traditional packaged body parts. Worth the trip to Orland Park!
