Visibility/Location: Champaign county fair grounds.

Wait Entertainment: The creepy little girls who are there every year. I really enjoy them.

Length of Event: 15 mins or so

Actor Performance: All were appropriate

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: We let the people who caught up, pass us.

Summary: I had fun here. They did pretty much keep the carnival theme going throughout. I loved the signs as you went in. Those set the atmosphere for the carnival. 
I didn't really understand the girl who asked if we wanted to play a game for our soul and then when we said yes, told us to move along. She might want to change that to a statement rather than a question. I got quite a few scares here. Loved the fenced area (not sure what to call it. There were quite a few scares there and I want one of the skeletons with the jack o lantern heads for my house!! 
I really wish all haunts would go to a number calling system rather than standing in lines. I think it would work well here.  
Overall, I had much fun in this one.

Visibility/Location: Fairgrounds location, not hard to locate, somewhat marked from roadway but use your GPS when in question ..

Wait Entertainment: There was a young girl and a monster walking around the event - nothing much to speak of here !

Length of Event: Events actually took around 18 minutes to complete ..

Actor Performance: The actors were somewhat hit and miss here, one would give you the scare factor and another would be somewhat out of it - also appeared to be a weak night for volunteers, the event could have used more people working it tonight ...

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The flow was seamless throughout the haunted house, there was a considerable amount of people attending tonight and we experienced no issues here ..

Appropriate Ages: I would recommend 8 years or more here, but I'd depend on your tolerance level - there is some light in your face scares here ..

Props / Special FX: The props and special effects are slightly above average here, but they pull it off ok.. Nothing real high tech here, no CGI effects and basic automation on various pop up attraction - acceptable here because of the circus type theme which is presented ..

Costumes / Make-up: The costumes and makeup was very well done to acceptable, no real issues here, however too many masks here ..

Summary: After a few years off here, we were excited to return to this event and it didn't disappoint us! This crew who presents this always brings their A game to this, everything is always presented very well and gives you a decent fear factor ! This attraction does have a following, so lines can be somewhat long but the wait is worth it.. From when you enter the building to the exit there is a lot of see and enjoy (props are very well presented) and there's various pop out monsters and creatures pursuing you, it's actually very good ! It would be nice to see them use more of the fairgrounds location for maybe a trail or hayrack ride, there is definitely the room here for expansion. I gave the event an 8 instead of a 7 because of the value of price and the great attempt to pull this off with what is available..
