Visibility/Location: Could have used a bigger sign from the street, but I knew where I was going because I looked up the directions on here! Location was great, parking was too!

Wait Entertainment: Not a lot of wait entertianment, wasn't boring though, they were playing scary movies for the people in line.

Length of Event: Probably 20 minutes or more! The line looked long, but the wait wasn't bad, I couldn't believe it was so long to go through! There was non stop scares, so I was surprised at the time when we got out!!

Actor Performance: Impressive!!! Adults and a few younger people, but all were very good. No missed ques that I noticed. I was impressed by the actors in a lot of the rooms, clowns, chainsaw, dr, and all the creepy people!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: I heard other groups screaming, but never ran into any. It was fun hearing tne people in front of us in line who were "not afraid" of anything scream like a bunch of little girls though!

Appropriate Ages: I would say 12 and up, unless your child is VERY brave.

Props / Special FX: Lighting and Sound was very good. A lot of impressive rooms and scenes, you can tell they worked hard developing some rooms and ideas, colorful in a creepy way. It was awesome how dark parts were and then your smacked in the face with lights or sound! Lots of props and details in some places.

Costumes / Make-up: Good mix of make up and really nice masks. Some movie monsters and some really impressive masks. Costumes were complete, not many tennis shoes or logos on clothes that I could see, which I really liked. Loved the amount of "blood."

Summary: Overall I was very impressed with the haunted house as a whole. Nice actors, props and sound. I was never bored! I was surprised by some original rooms/scence and characters that were mixed in with the classic movie monsters!Michael, Freddy, Clowns, and I think LeatherFace, but I ran too fast to tell.I wish my group (of chickens) would have stayed longer in some of the rooms so we could see the detail they put in them. I will NEVER look at laundry the same way again...

Visibility/Location: Im from Champaign So I knew exactly where the building was, but they could have had a sign on Windor road that could have drawn more attention.

Wait Entertainment: We didnt wait long so we didnt need any..but It would have been nice to see a couple actors roaming the lines maybe they were a little short that night. But I will say it was nice the wait was inside covered and warm, def a plus

Length of Event: 20 Minutes

Actor Performance: I would say they did a good job here. Most all their actors were on que and played there parts well.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Very good. They spaced groups very well we didnt run into a group and no one ran into us. It was also nice because there was no guide which i fell kills the mood.

Appropriate Ages: I would say 10 and up..but that depends on the person, Ive seen people bring 6 year old to haunted houses that wont get scared and Ive also seen 20 year old men screaming their heads off

Props / Special FX: Some rooms were very detailed and had great props while some could have used a little more spiced up but all in all they were good.

Costumes / Make-up: Most of the workers where wearing masks, but they all fit the rooms they where in.

Summary: All in all this was a very good haunted house. For $7 and the length of the event it was very reasonable. They had some great detailed scenes with good actors, Im pretty sure it was right around 20 rooms give or take.. though I did notice a room or two that I didnt see someone in..Im not sure if they were under staffed or the actor missed there que, but It was opening weekend so maybe by the following weekends they will have all the quirks worked out. I talked to the lady that was taking tickets and she told me her brother was the one that puts it on and he had been doing haunted houses for 12 years..not sure where she didnt say but it showed. I will probably go back and visit halloween weekend to see it again and see if things have changed.. I know a lot of haunted houses have their slow nights so I allways try and visit twice. But one again it was a good haunted house you can tell they put alot of work into it, and it was going to a good cause so thats always nice to see. Job well done though.

Visibility/Location: Location was great but they do need a sign out on the road and mabye more lighting to indicate where you enter the Haunted House

Wait Entertainment: None needed...we did not have to wait long.

Length of Event: It took us about 25 minutes to go through...which really surprised me because it was only $7/person and they are donating ALL profits to the American Cancer Society.

Actor Performance: Very Good...some were even younger kids...which is scary to me.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Good

Appropriate Ages: We were told 12 and up when we went in and I would agree.

Props / Special FX: The BEST part is that you get to go throught the Haunted House by guide...which I really like and they had a LOT of different rooms...they were VERY creative and had some GREAT ideas.

Costumes / Make-up: Costumes and Make up was done well...not cheap masks

Summary: VERY good Haunted House for the money. We went to a few other Haunted Houses in the area and BY FAR this was the BEST! I am coming back Halloween Weekend for sure!
