|Scare Factor: Low | Atmosphere: Average|
Visibility/Location: This place you can see from the interstate, but otherwise if it hadn't been for hauntedillinois.com we probably never would have found it.
Wait Entertainment: When you first go in to pay is hilarious. They have a guy there that pretends to be a little slow, he reminds me of Sloth from the Goonies. After you pay though, there is no music. You have to talk amungst yourselves for entertainment.
Length of Event: It lasted quite a while. You went through a house, then you walked a trail, and lastly one more house. Probably about 30 + minutes.
Actor Performance: The acting performance was okay, but not spectacular. It was very easy to find yourself going from scared to bored within a few minutes.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The Patron Flow could have been better. I realize that this is a big attraction, so they send in bigger groups. It's not the best though, because you find other groups getting scared infront of you and so when you walk up.. nothing happens.
Appropriate Ages: 12 +
Props / Special FX: They did have some pretty cool animatronics. They had this HUGE... I don't even really know what it was, but the creature was creepy. They also had the vortex tunnel, and the let you stay in that for quite a while.
Summary: Torment at 1200 wasn't terrible, but I would definitly say it wasn't great. There was nothing to entertain you while you waited in line except yourselves, not even music. The groups were far too big, that unless you were in the very front, you weren't going to get scared. Some of the actors even looked bored, so then you almost wanted to yawn. I guess what I'm trying to get at, is I feel that the $12 I paid to get in, didn't get me scared at all.
