2003 Creatures Crypt Review

Creatures Crypt
410 East Washington
Bloomington, IL 61701 
Date of Review: 10/25/03
Visibility/Location: This attraction is located right along the side of the road, so it is pretty easy to find.  Near the entrance, there is a large "Creatures Crypt" sign, which increases the visibility of this event. The lighting inside, shining through the front windows of the building, also gets your attention.
Outside Appearance: Creatures Crypt is held inside an old school building, which isn't overly creepy; however, the eerie green and red lighting emitting from the inside of the building enhanced it's appearance.
Wait Entertainment: Wait entertainment was great.  A spooky music soundtrack was playing and there were a couple of actors scaring the people waiting in line. For the customer's enjoyment, horror movies and horror movie trailers were being played on multiple televisions throughout the waiting area.  There was also a nice detailed graveyard set up, with a couple of animatronic props. 
Admission Price: $8.00
Length:

7 Minutes *

* = Since people move through haunted attractions at different rates, your time may vary.

Scare Factor: Medium-High
Atmosphere: A great spooky atmosphere was established and maintained by the highly detailed scenes throughout the attraction.  Creatures Crypt is one of the most detailed haunted houses in the state of Illinois.  Various music soundtracks customized for each scene, eerie lighting, fog, animatronics and enthusiastic actors all contributed to the overall atmosphere of this attraction.  
Crowd Control: Crowd control was excellent.  Groups were led through the house, holding onto a rope.  The ensured that none of the groups ever ran into each other.  
Other Customer's
Opinions:
I heard nothing but positive comments about this attraction from the crowd.  Most everyone enjoyed the highly detailed scenes.  

Summary:

There was a lot of eye candy in this attraction.  In fact, it was hard to take it all in, in just one trip through.  

There were some really great new areas this year.  The Texas Chainsaw Massacre scene was outstanding!  I also enjoyed the vampire bat cave, with its contoured walls and great sound effects.  There was also a really neat special effect where a female vampire floated down at you from a six foot tall platform.

Throughout this attraction, there were many pop-out animatronic props and actors, that sprang out at you when you least expected it. This fast-paced attraction really keeps you on your toes.  The actors were very motivated and their timing was right on target. The most intimidating was the ten foot tall ghoul that reached down at you!  

It is easy to see that a lot of work went into putting this show together.  Great job Creatures Crypt!  This is definitely a must see attraction.
