|Scare Factor: High | Atmosphere: Very Good|
Visibility/Location: The parking was directly across from the haunted house, so very good location.
There could have been a few more signs to lead you to the place should you not be from Skokie
Wait Entertainment: The actors did go throughout the crowd intermittently and frighten people so that time passed quickly and it made it fun for the people there on the outside
Length of Event: It ran very fluid from the time we walked in to the time we came out without interruption (except for the time it took me to stop and scream or to hurry and try to get past someone that scared me)
Actor Performance: The majority of actors this year were better than last year...they put themselves into the scene they were in much better this year and timed it so that they scared you prior to your getting to see them first
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Clear in and and for us so no complaints there
Appropriate Ages: Yes it was age appropriate, we did not see any little babies or toddlers around
Props / Special FX: The special effects were pretty cool. We enjoyed the bridge because the outer part circled around you entirely as you crossed it and we liked the timing of the things that were mechanically animated but our favorite was the operating room because it looked so real!
Costumes / Make-up: The operating room was terrific for believability! The guy on the table and his loose body parts were so realistic!
Summary: It was a good variation of things that made it fun and scary.
Seeing as we went last year we could see the improvement on the actors parts, the increasing of moving mechanisms and the over all spookiness of the event in its entirety
