| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: Very High | Atmosphere: Very Good|
Visibility/Location: This was located in downtown Paris and was pretty easy to find. There was no BIG sign, but they had a weird flashing light in the window that caught my attention to its location. Mapquest gave good directions.
Wait Entertainment: Wait entertainment was lacking. Fortunately, there was hardly a wait at all. There were a lot of annoying children in the waiting area, that I think were the kids of the people running the haunt.
Length of Event: 15 minutes.
Actor Performance: Good! Actors were energetic and really in character. I wish there were a few more actors though. The ones there though were pretty wild and clever at trying to scare you.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Decent job, plus almost no wait time. We only ran into another group during the pitch black maze.
Appropriate Ages: 10 and above.
Props / Special FX: Not bad. There are a couple of spooky surprises that are put together effectively. The real scary part of the haunt is the maze. They had some good "scary" techno/rock halloween music playing.
Costumes / Make-up: I saw some uniquely horrifying costumes. Some really fit into a theme well (such as the clown room). All of the actors were horrifingly costumed.
Summary: This was a WONDERFUL HAUNT for 6 dollars. This haunt had the biggest bang for its buck that I ever been to. I've seen similar haunts in the chicagoland area that charge three times as much. This place is a gem with great actors and a TRULY pitch black maze. Many places advertise it, not many come through. This maze you literally couldn't see your hand in front of your face! It was pretty scary because you never knew what or who you'd run into. I accidently hit someone when I was trying to feel for a wall so be careful in there!
Also, I liked how the entire attraction was indoors (including a good sized wait area). This would be a good haunt to visit when the weather gets colder. For a low-priced haunt, this place is definately not one to miss. It was worth my two hour drive to attend this attraction.
