| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: High | Atmosphere: Good|
Visibility/Location: Located in the middle of nowhere, .same place it's been for years now, using GPS will make it easy ..
Wait Entertainment: Some butcher walking the crowds swings the big blade, several other stranglers moving around the lines - not a heavy crowd tonight ..
Length of Event: I would say between the four events the actual scare time through the event was around 30 total minutes..
Actor Performance: Everyone tonight done a fantastic job, there was no weak links here... the clown area was probably overall the best experience..
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Everything flowed ok, but as stated above we had somewhat a light crowd tonight and this event has been pulled outside now - the house days are gone, those were the bottleneck days of the past !
Appropriate Ages: I would recommend this for 8 years, there are some light in your face scares here but everything manageable!
Props / Special FX: Standard props here, nothing high tech or CGI, no automation props, they keep everything standard here... It somewhat works, but it's definitely time to up the game here !
Costumes / Make-up: The costumes and makeup are usually very well done and this year was no exception, everything we noticed here was very good .. These are not the high priced costumes but they do a good job .
Summary: Fright Night in its early days use to be a Central Illinois staple, however even with years taking there toll here - it's still solid . This is listed as a four event attraction, however the trails could be combined into one and the clown area and slaughter house also - but they break it apart for more attractions ...
With the fire codes shuttering the old church and skinner house for good, now the event has moved strictly outside - somewhat disappointing .. The hayride was also bit the bullet this year, it's gone and now a so called shuttle bus (nothing scary) takes you to the exterior of the skinner house for your walk around .. The events are somewhat entertaining and the various monsters do make everything scary to some extent, however the high impact scares are gone !
It's makes an interesting night and the guys do a good job with what they have available, but the ordinances and restrictions have almost killed off the fright night experience!
