| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: Very High | Atmosphere: Very Good|
Visibility/Location: Realm of Terror has multiple signs and is at the well known Kristof's entertainment center so not too hard to spot.
Wait Entertainment: We got there before they opened but before we got in there were a few actors making their way out to scare people and mess with them.
Length of Event: About 25 minutes.
Actor Performance: Very good as usual. Actors are highly intense and in your face and some mix in humor with creepiness.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Patron is always good until the maze area at the end but overall better than most haunts.
Appropriate Ages: Signs say 16 and up and I would say it is definitely aimed at an older crowd. There is offensive language and very detailed and gross sets and intense actors. This is really up to the parents but I would say at least 13 years of age.
Props / Special FX: Special FX and props are always improving at Realm of Terror. They have consistently added more details and better props to the scenes making this a must see haunt in IL.
Costumes / Make-up: Very well done in this department as well. Costumes are elaborate and fit the scenes that are being portrayed at the time. Make up is definitely top of the line and very detailed.
Summary: Being a haunt enthusiast in both running and visiting attractions across the country I always try to make it to Realm of Terror every so often. In IL there are not too many spots that can even hold a candle to Realm of Terror as they are on another level entirely. Makeup is spot on, acting is full of energy and they do not break character and the whole haunt flows with a continuous theme.
This year was even better for Realm as they seemed to have improved their props and set up and they always change the haunt around so that it is never the same thing again. Being a temporary haunt I would say that Realm of Terror is one of the best in IL. I definitely enjoy it each time and like the trademark maze that they have incorporated into the haunt each year. Definitely be sure to check out Realm if you are in the area or want to travel to a top haunt in the Midwest.
