| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: High | Atmosphere: Very Good|
Visibility/Location: Located in the little town of Berry Illinois, just outside Rochester. The event is very poorly marked and if you didn't know it was there you wouldn't know it.
Wait Entertainment: Lots of great (not good) waiting entertainment with well trained actors doing a fantasic job. They are the best at working the crowds, and they do have large crowds.
Length of Event: The event has some good length overall, I think we were good for 20 minutes.
Actor Performance: All the actors done a great job, however too many young children here. People just don't understand that kids are not scary and usually fall short. There was a middle aged woman who was dressed like a zombie (I think) who kept giving me those eyes and even with her make-up she was attractive, I hope go see her again and soon.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The flow moved through the attraction flawlessly and we had no problem.
Appropriate Ages: I would say about 8 years old and older, some light in your face scares.
Props / Special FX: These people do a very good job every year with automation effects and lots of smoke and mirrors, perfectly done.
Costumes / Make-up: The best costumes and make-up of any haunted attraction outside St. Louis and Chicago, these people do the homework great. You will not find anybody doing the make-up better, period !
Summary: We attend this event every year, and this group does a perfect job and it's a privilege to attend this event. This year we used the speed pass because this attraction draws the numbers, and we had to make tracks to other events. Everything went well throughout the attraction and we enjoyed this years theme, it seemed to work good - my son missed the airplane crash though... The only flaw I noticed was several Boo Crew staff members throughout the event talking to costume actors, just doesn't work good within the event.. There were other crew members stationed throughout the event which didn't seem right either, hard to figure this because they are usually better than this.. Overall we had a good time, and looking forward to next year..
