Visibility/Location: Easy to find if you know a little bit about Pekin. No sign until your were there at the corner of the block where the house sat.

Wait Entertainment: A couple of actors- one adult- maybe teenager and 2 little kids in masks. Otherwise some heavy music.

Length of Event: 10 minutes.

Actor Performance: Some were great other lacked because of cues were off. Recommendation would be to not take your masks off and talk to other actors until the patrons have left the room. We saw a couple without masks on talking in the house. Plus screaming in someones ears for a long period of time is not scary.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Did not run into any other groups.

Appropriate Ages: 8 and up for the brave.

Props / Special FX: Lots of lighting and strob FX. One memorable room was the last room where it was red and white strobs with white strips of cloth that you had to walk through. Nice job on this room. The fog horn was great- almost felt as if something was coming up behind you.

Costumes / Make-up: Did not see any make-up. There might have been some but only saw mostly masks.

Summary: It was a nice house. Could have used some more big scares. $10.00 is a little much for this house though. If there had been more adults working might have been more enjoyable. This was the first house we visited that night so was a good start.

Visibility/Location: Good, if you are from Pekin, you will notice the lit up sign. Persnaolly I think every haunt needs a light up sign so you can find it! They's advertised for a month now also.

Wait Entertainment: My friend and I were the only ones there but we jsut made it in time before close.

Length of Event: Longer than I expected, the building looks small but it was a long haunt, execially when you had to pick a door out of 3 to proceed with the tour.

Actor Performance: VERY Good! One of the actors picked up on my naem and they all kept calling my name. They worked really hard and disn't miss a beat by coming out to late or too early!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: We were the only ones there so we had no one to run into

Appropriate Ages: children shoudl have a parent, but if I got scared, it would be better for young adults and adults only

Props / Special FX: Many! Many things op out at you. They had no cheesy stuff. They had a secion where you had 3 doors to select. I picked the wrong ones twice and got the scare. They had a vortex tunnel where I was chased acrossed, a glow stick tunnel, many black tunnels, awesoem much!

Costumes / Make-up: many! vampires, clowns, Michael meyers, Freddy...the usual bad guy crew with many other monsters.

Summary: This was the BEST hautned house I had been to in years and this season! This was more scary than Spider hiil, Spook Hollow, and Fright Night! This was well worth the money a I got the s**t (censored) scared out of me!
