| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: High | Atmosphere: Good|
Visibility/Location: Just outside of the Chicago Loop with a huge sign at the driveway entrance. House located in a huge lot.
Wait Entertainment: Various actors interacting with the line
Length of Event: 15-20 minutes
Actor Performance: Good both in your face scary and creepy, quiet scary. Always seemed to be one around a turn, of which there were many.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Our group actually got separated as the back half got stuck getting scared by a few actors. Didn't see anyone in front of us.
Appropriate Ages: 8 and up
Props / Special FX: Great animatronic monsters and wall decorations. Craziest thing was the smells they used, a few rooms smelled like sewers and dead animals.
Costumes / Make-up: Well done, no obvious makeup and the costumes looked well weathered and realistic.
Summary: Heard that the DreamReapers production team took over this year, and I've been going there for years, schlepping out from the city. Very on par with that production, which is well done every year, and they brought that talent to Chronicles. Very convenient location and one of the few houses within the city, and in my opinion this years production is the best house in the city. Another cool aspect for the over 21 group is a cool bar near the exit of the house where you can watch other people going through the house on a monitor. They did right this year in bringing in the new production team, and they have great props to go along with great acting.
