|Scare Factor: High | Atmosphere: Very Good|
Visibility/Location: great location just off of illinois 53 and boughton road
Wait Entertainment: psychic readings, stilk walking characters, and a lady in character setting up the walk-through and mood make it an easy wait
Length of Event: depends how fast you want to go through....but about 45 minutes from beginning to end of both houses
Actor Performance: most of the actors nailed it! there were your typical ghoulies jumping out of the dark and bloody mental patients screaming at you, but some of the characters were really scary and suprising! (look out for the "living" statues!)
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: pretty good....sometimes the groups are too big to go in all at once, but there was never a back-up or feeling of being crowded or rushed
Appropriate Ages: 12 and up, although they do have glowsticks for little ones to "ward off" the actors
Props / Special FX: there are some awesome mechanical effects and set decorations...they really paid attention to details!
Costumes / Make-up: what you would expect from a haunted house...some are very good, with latex and blood effects and for the most part the costumes matched the characters and different rooms...some are run of the mill stock
Summary: i would TOTALLY recommend this place to anyone in the chicagoland area. It is fun, creepy, high energy,and totally gets you in the mood for halloween! Also, you don't have to wait outside, the price was fair, and there was plenty of parking.
