|Scare Factor: High | Atmosphere: Good|
Visibility/Location: Located in the back streets of Evergreen Park, it is not highly visible, but word of mouth from visitors brings in the big crowds. There were also flyers passed around with the address and directions on how to get there.
Wait Entertainment: The "ghouls" who played with the crowd were fun and entertaining. They would sneak up behind you, or just randomly find a "victim" to play with.
Length of Event: Approx 10 - 15 minutes once inside. All depends on how quickly the group in front of you passes thorough the house.
Actor Performance: The majority of the actors are of the high school age. They all acted out their roles very well. From the ghouls, to the victims to the decapaties (decapatated bodies) they were a thrill to watch.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: On this night, it was slow moving. There were groups of girls that stopped and screamed at everything. But, was still very enticing to go through.
Appropriate Ages: This haunt offers a "no scare" deal in the late afternoon till dusk for children under 12 to go through. Otherwise this is rated for 10 and up.
Props / Special FX: The entire 16 room house is located in the driveway / backyard. The use of strobe lights, music, black and colored lighting and fog machine added to the thrill.
Costumes / Make-up: Excellent jon on the makeup for the actors not using masks or hoods. The creativity was a step up for the ages of the actors working this house.
Summary: For the locals, it is a defininate place to go. It is free for all ages (they do accept donations). The scares were good, some were over the board, but overall, would recommend a visit by others to see. THE line for the house goes up the driveway alongside where the rooms are located, so you hear some of the noises and screams while waiting. For this being totally outdoors and having 16 rooms to pass through, I was amazed (and even didn't mind crawling through one area). The twists and turns with the lighting keeps one room flowing into the other, but a new scare in each room keep you on your toes.
