Visibility/Location: Visibility and location aren't bad at all, there's no way you can miss the school lol. One bad thing is that The entrance is near the front of the school and when you're driving twoards the school coming in from galesburg you don't notice that, nor do you see it.

Wait Entertainment: I'm not too sure, because when we got there we went right in. There was music though.

Length of Event: about 20-30minutes depending on how long it takes you to get passed the maze in the end. Pretty decent and standard.

Actor Performance: Some people are pretty decent at acting, I mean it's a haunted house not a movie so I wouldn't expect perfection, but maybe a little more effort to get into character and be serious about scaring. There was only a few people in a few rooms at the beginning who did a good job at acting and being serious about what they were doing. I'm not slamming anyone else it's just afterwards it seemed to lack a certain creepy performance.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The flow is pretty good, no groups ran into eachother or anything like that.

Appropriate Ages: Yes it's appropriate for all ages, there isn't anyhting that kids should not see in the haunted house, and if your child does not want to go through there is a children section where the kids can play while you go through.

Props / Special FX: This was decent, I don't think everyone was dressed up. However most were and looked great.

Costumes / Make-up: Good, not much to say on this it was good pretty standard i dont think i saw anyone and asked myself who is that? or what are they supposed to be?

Summary: Ok soo overall the Haunted House is pretty decent in my opinion. Probably about a 5 or 6 out of 10. At the beginning it's just too empty, theres nothing there really but it's still creepy if you have girls with you that hate haunted houses. This haunted house has soooo much potential I mean it's in a the old jr/sr. Highschool thats a hugeee building. But after the short walk through nothing in the beginning and after the first 3 or 4 room, think, it just became decreasingly scary and more like a brisk walk through a creepy place. In my opinion I would have to rate the best rooms from best to last. 1.the execution room 2. the dot room 3. the zombie room. Those are my top rooms. The maze this year seemed a little easier than last years and disappointed me. I love mazes and was really loooking forward to being lost for a bit and hearing my girlfriend scream while attaching herself to me. But that only happened for a little bit then we found our way out.. The other thing about the maze is that there is too much light. I think that maybe if they dramatically decreased to light it would be scarier. Overall after the rooms I just said were the best, the others seemed to be too open, like there wasn't enough stuff in them and they could use more props or design into the rooms. This however does not apply to the top rooms I rated. Overall to make improvement I think they just need some more serious actors and Better designers of their rooms. I really don't know what happened after those rooms I rated top 3 but after them it just seemed like the other rooms were plain. I don't know who was incharge of room design but whoever got those 3 right good job! Overall the whole haunted house was a fun and decent one. My girlfriend was scared a bit and thats really all that matters to me. Good to take your kids to if you want to scared them and if they dont want to go through there is some fun little activites they can do just ask someone about it. TO improve the haunted house I would just say it needs to just have some more serious actors and maybe some more in most of their rooms and simply a harder maze. Other than that it was ok.

Visibility/Location: The Visibility was good i could see it as I was coming down Rt 41 in Abingdon.

Wait Entertainment: the wait was good you could hear the music that they were playing in the haunted house and the wait was very short

Length of Event: it last 20 to 30 minutes

Actor Performance: they were really good even the chain saw and the electric chair room

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: it was on time because all the tour guides were there when they were suppose too

Appropriate Ages: any ages

Summary: I thought it was awesome I loved every part of the haunted house. The parts that got me the most were the electric chair room because you either had the girl screaming in the chair or the body bag coming at you and the chain saw men who came at you and chasing you down the hall to the maze. I really enjoyed the maze also because it brought all the characters to life also. I liked how you did not have to wait hours upon hours to get into the haunted house. I liked how you got several options on the floors to go because that seemed to be more interesting because i went several times and still got scared everytime because I forgot what was coming next.
