| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: High | Atmosphere: Very Good|
Visibility/Location: Located at the Haunted Trails amusement park in burbank, il. on harlem ave. You can't miss the flashing lights and big Haunted Trails sign.
Wait Entertainment: They had an actor in line and also telling you when to go in. There's was also a creepy clown on top the trailer who interacted with the crowd.
Length of Event: 10 mins
Actor Performance: Very good there was alot of good scares and everyone was really into it. Far better than our visit last year. The jason actor freaked my girlfriend out and seemed to pop out of knowhere.. also there was this short clown that was very unsettling.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Well spaced didn't run into any other groups
Appropriate Ages: Little ones might be scared more for the older kids
Props / Special FX: There was a spooky atmosphere as well as some nice props. The elevator scene stands out, as well as the graveyard were the dead seem to be rising up all around us very good scene.
Costumes / Make-up: Costumes were a combinaton of mask and face paint most memorable costume had to be jason looked as tho he jumped out of the movie. Also the chair was a good one but don't wanna say to much to give it away ill let leople find out themselfs
Summary: This years theme is a movie theatre and we became "stars" We first entered in thru the concession area and the guy telling the story set the tone and scared us.
Then we were rushed into an elevator to go down to the basement were there was a actor waiting for us. This scene is very good and everyone jumped (I'm not going to tell the scares let people find out for themselfs). We then went into various movies scenes from some popular horror movies. Some of them are Halloween, nightmare on elm st, Friday the 13, texas chainsaw massacre, as well as some other various films.
Overall we had a great time and it was better than the year before. The actors the scenes were very nicely done as well as its next to an arcade. Were we went and played some games with the gf and some friends wich were fun on there own.
The night we went they had a bunch of old hurstes in the front parking lot and they were really cool to see as well as a little spooky, since well they are hurst and were used at one point in time.
