Visibility/Location: The event was located at the Naper Settlement, a 19th century village preserved as an outdoor museum. Easy to find, easy to park.

Wait Entertainment: Good. There were several roaming characters engaging the people waiting outside the various buildings.

Length of Event: 6:30pm - 10:00pm self-guided. It should run a bit longer in the future, as some lines get very long.

Actor Performance: Excellent. The actors wore period costumes and played their parts expertly. Especially effective were the actors in the Lizzie Borden house, genuinely chilling. The coven of witches were the childrens' favorite, since they were spooky and friendly at the same time.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Patron flow was smooth, as there were a number of different attractions to see. The only one we missed was the Dracula House, where the wait was up to an hour.

Appropriate Ages: All ages. There were plenty of scary features, with less intimidating places for kids.

Props / Special FX: The Naper Settlement is a perfect backdrop for Halloween. There was a spooky old church, lamplit mansions, a gypsy camp. It is truly like going back in time. The Jefferson Graveyard was a magnificent addition. The only downside was that there was less outdoor decor than last year (e.g. lighting, tombstones, etc).

Costumes / Make-up: Period costumes and characters really added to the experience. There were ghostly Civil War soldiers, witches, mummies, a 10-foot tall skeleton, and even the Headless Horseman!

Summary: Great value for money. The overall environment was wonderfully spooky, far beyond any standard haunted house. Adding in the indoor museum, food vendors and magic shows, it's really a terrific experience. I hope this is a Halloween tradition for many years to come.
