Visibility/Location: Didn't see any signs leading into it (i could have missed them...), but I had been there before so I knew where it was.

Wait Entertainment: they have various monsters that are out walking around and concessions. the wait didn't seem all that long, but we were having fun with some of the ghouls walking around.

Length of Event: i would guess it was approx 15-20 mins once we got started.

Actor Performance: the actors were good, they were ready when we came in and did a very nice job of scaring the group i was in.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: the only time we even saw the group ahead of us was in the very first room where you hear the story. other than that the flow was excellent!

Appropriate Ages: this haunt is safe for any age. they have this light that you can take if you have a young child and the actors wont be too aggressive or scary with them then, so i'd say it's safe for all!

Props / Special FX: every year i go see boo crew and every year i am amazed at the decor/props/special fx. this haunt does an amazing job setting a creepy atmosphere with great details and nice rooms. very well done

Costumes / Make-up: this is another area that boo crew excels. they are probably 50/50. some actors wear masks and others have makeup and/or prosthetic pieces. they all look great. the only thing i heard from my group was that they mentioned some of the people looked very similar so i'm not sure if the same person just came to another room of if it was different people with same face.

Summary: overall boocrew is well worth the drive out to rochester. the price is reasonable for the scare you receive! i never like to give away any scares to those who read the reviews before going, but be warned that in this haunt you will have to bend and possibly crawl at some point, so if you have physical limitations might want to consider that. otherwise, if you go out i hope you enjoy your trip thru as much as we did!

Visibility/Location: This is located i'n Berry Illinois, can be somewhat hard to find your first and second time - they need much better road signs! We go here every year since it opened outside of Rochester 6 years ago or more.

Wait Entertainment: It doesn't get any better, they have lots of quality monsters walking throughout the attraction.

Length of Event: The event is around maybe 20 minutes long, but lots to see here i'n a short time.

Actor Performance: The actors did a great job throughout the attraction, lots of people working this event and it didn't let up from start to finish.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The flow throughout it usually good without running into another group, but this year we ran into another group twice in the event - bad timing here and it's hard to find out why.. The group flow at the beginning was great and somewhere i'n the middle crowd slowed, we waited it out two times..

Appropriate Ages: I would say around 9 or 10 years old would be ok here, but there is a scare factor - some younger kids could have a problem with this.

Props / Special FX: Lots of automation pop props, great surrounding throughout the event and the timing was good. No real special FX effects, but lots to see here.

Costumes / Make-up: The costumes and make-up was great, no small detail was emitted. These people know the make-up and what they are doing is nice.

Summary: This is one of those must see attractions and for central Illinois it is one of the best haunted houses around. The price of $8.00 is excellent and for what they put into this, a good deal.. The remote 
surroundings, the large building, 
The great detailed haunted house effects And workmanship make this a must see event . 
attraction. The best scare this year  
has to be the clown area and the  
swamp room, lots of great detail  
here and the missed nothing. The  
new "tight" areas were good too..
