|Scare Factor: High | Atmosphere: Very Good|
Visibility/Location: Was kind of weird to get to. The site said follow the signs. The only signs I saw said "No Parking" But once I turned on the street I saw the police car so I assumed it was over there and it was. It is in desolate kind of area which made it a bit more creepy so I wouldn't complain about the location.
Wait Entertainment: They had a lot of guys walking around, but I think that was a little bit of overkill. Maybe if there is a lot more people in line it would be okay, but they basically just hung all over us since there wasn't that many people in line. The guy burping in your face it completely disgusting. He did it 3 times to me over the 20 minutes. That i found to be just gross.
Length of Event: 40 Minutes. Waiting in line for like 20 minutes but it was the first day it opened. I have been to the previous one in Grayslake and have waited for over 2 hours.
Actor Performance: I thought they did a great job. Some were better then others. But I did get off guard and scream a bit. Some were annoying and just tried to hard, but for the most part they did their part scared you and went back.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Ran into one group on front of us because the girl was so scared she would barely move. Then the only other time we ran into anyone was in the maze. Which was fine because I know that's how they spread people out. Once we got through it we didn't run into anyone again except where you are suppose to at the designated spots where they spread you out again.
Appropriate Ages: 13 and up, maybe older. Really depends on how scared you get at haunted houses.
Props / Special FX: I really did enjoy this haunted house. They had a lot of cool things. I like the room that moved. And the door when you enter Mercy General Hospital, with the girl in the window... that was pretty cool. They had some other cool things too but don't want to give to much away.
Costumes / Make-up: Very cool costumes and make up for the most part. They took the time to come up with costumes, think them through and deliver on the make up to go along with it. Keep it up!!
Summary: I really enjoyed myself here. It was long and had many different things to offer. The elevator, burried alive, the guy who blow ups and you get splattered. I Drove an hour to get here and t was worth it. 4 of us went and we all really enjoyed. Even my boyfriend who thinks haunted houses are lame and extremely dumb. He kept saying how much he liked it.
