19412 Shabbona Rd.
Malta, IL 60150

Visibility/Location: This event was easy to find using Mapquest.  The large parking lot filled with cars and the signs by the road made it obvious where the event was located.   
Wait Entertainment: Before they opened, there was an actor in a gorilla suit walking around, scaring the people waiting in line to buy tickets.   
Admission Price: $8.00
Length:

1 Hour & 10 Minutes *  
*
= Since people move through haunted attractions at different rates, your time will vary. Note: The time shown here represents the actual time spent moving through the attraction. Time spent waiting in queue lines or staging areas has been subtracted.

Scare Factor: Medium-Low
Crowd Control: For the most part, patron flow was pretty good.  I did run into a few other groups, but that could be expected, considering I was trying to traverse a huge acre corn maze in the dark that had multiple looping paths and dead ends.    

Summary:

During the day, this ten acre corn field, with three miles of walking paths functions as a regular corn maze.  At night the monsters come out and this event transforms into Jonamac Orchard's Haunted Corn Maze.  While the first half of the maze was fairly tame, the second half was filled with assorted ghouls, props and mini-scenes.  Flashlights weren't allowed (only glow sticks or pen lights), which really enhanced the spooky mood of this attraction.  On the night I attended it was nearly a full moon, which provided just enough light for me to be able to traverse the multiple twists and turns in the cornfield.  If the moon hadn't been so bright, I'm sure I would have needed some other light source to make my way through.   At various check-points within the maze, there where multiple choice trivia questions posted.  Guess the correct answer and the sign would lead you down the correct path... guess wrong and you would be sent down an alternate path of loops and dead ends.  Even with a map, my group found it a challenge to traverse the paths in this huge corn field.  Another thing to remember... Since there is a lot of walking required, be sure to wear comfortable shoes. 

Kudos to the folks at Jonamac Orchard.  They've really put together a great family-friendly event.  It is quite a value, considering you get over an hour of entertainment for only $8! Keep up the great work!
