2015 Hopper's Haunted House Review


(Click to Enlarge)

Hopper's Haunted House
11576 Route 2
Rockford, IL 61102

Visited: 10/17/15

 

Reviewed By: Shadow
Visibility/Location: Fair warning, route 2 is a very long road. GPS always recommended. Once you come around the bend the house is very easy to see. Very well lit with multiple signs as well as an Ambulance(part of the haunt) with lights flashing. I thought that was a pretty neat touch. Parking was very close to the event.
Wait Entertainment: It looked like there was a live radio broadcast going on. 104.9 the X had one of their vans out and had some great music playing. There wasn't much wait line entertainment in the form of actors but it was well worth getting a chance to talk to one of the Hopper's guys.
Admission Price: $10
Parking: Free
Length:

19 Minutes *

Scare Factor: Medium-High
Crowd Control: Patrons were spaced out very well. We only had one group catch up to us. (Honestly, I think they were running)

Summary:

I thoroughly enjoyed Hopper's Haunted House. From purchasing my ticket, to meeting a member of the Hopper crew. To the very end of the haunt when we were walking out, where the owner's son actually was taking the time to speak to patrons and see how they enjoyed the event. The haunt was very well setup, from the scenes, to the actors spaced throughout. Also, my personal favorite, I don't remember any chainsaws being inside the house. Super happy about that. I can't really think of anything about Hopper's haunted house that I didn't like. I do have to confess though, the blackout maze was fun, and frustrating. The fact that it was able to be built and be completely pitch black was awe inspiring and aggravating. So kudos Hoppers, very rarely can a haunt irritate me to no end. You have succeeded. As I was all by my lonesome, I met a grandpa with his almost 11 year old granddaughter, and they became my “group”. Walking through there her and I were going back an forth as to who was going first. Somehow it managed to be me and she had the back of my hoodie to keep track of me. There was no rule's room. Which isn't too common for a haunt, however there really wasn't one needed. Hopper's did so incredibly well with the group spacing and the way the haunt was setup. There weren't many rooms as much as their were hallways. Which kept the actors and the patrons at a good distance. I really appreciated that, from the catacombs, to the not so many clowns. Overall, this would be one that I would go to again. Just to see if they've come up with anything else to terrorize their patrons.
