Visibility/Location: There are signs on the street pointing to where you will park. However, the actual haunt is located on the next street over. There are workers in the parking lot who can direct you where to go.
Wait Entertainment: While there were no live action characters to keep us entertained in line, there is a huge screen showing video clips of horror movies (and fun facts associated with that movie). Haunted Infirmary has some covered waiting for those wet nights and several places to sit. Concessions and bathroom facilities are nearby as well.
Admission Price: $15.00
Parking: Free
Length:

16 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 forward through the attraction. Time spent waiting in queue lines, staging areas, intro scenes, rules rooms and when traffic jams cause patrons to come to a halt, has been subtracted. 

LPR: 3.733
LPR stands for Length/Price Ratio. It represents perceived value of an event, by comparing length vs price of admission. Higher numbers represent more value per dollar. Actual quality and/or entertainment value of an event are not factors in this calculation. Click Here to see how this event compares to others visited this year by the staff of HauntedIllinois.com.
Scare Factor: Medium-High
Crowd Control: The haunt is set up that you do not see any other groups at all while inside. The actors kept control of the pace which helps keep us from running into groups in front of us or allowing the group behind us to catch up.

Summary:

Haunted Infirmary is back up and running after being closed last year to install a new sprinkler system. I attended the haunt on its opening night with three friends. While we waited in line for a short time, opening night is rarely busy. But I have attended this haunt in the past where the wait was over two hours long.

The haunt begins with a little history lesson on the building, its inhabitants and one worker in particular. Knowing the building once held residents of the State Hospital and is supposedly truly haunted should only increase the scare factor.

After entering the building, the backdrop is set for the theme of the haunt. There is no shortage of actors, scenes, props, scares, etc. Haunted Infirmary overloads you with it. So much attention is placed on the details of the scene I found myself wanting to linger and check it all out. I did find that being at the end of the group, I missed a lot of the “jump out and scare” moments, but was oh so lucky enough to be tailed by some patients, doctors, masked figures, etc…all who took a great deal of joy out of running their fingers through the back of my hair. I love this! They technically didn’t touch me. Just my hair. Creepy. And effective.

I have to urge anyone who is visiting this haunt to try and take a little time to really take in their environment. Check out the food in the cafeteria. If you can handle it, take a big sniff in the bathroom (gaggy gross!) Utilizing more than one of our senses is always a smart move.

One of my favorite things in this haunt was a “creature” who you will have to look up to see. But don’t worry. Just because he is above you doesn’t mean he can’t get you.

Haunted Infirmary has not been daunted by its year hiatus. They are aggressively trying to provide their patrons with a good scare and a great night of entertainment. Their attention to detail and openness to feedback, make them a quality haunt.
