|Scare Factor: Low | Atmosphere: Average|
Visibility/Location: This haunt was easy to find, it was right off of Rt. 45. The sign was hard to see because it was not lighted. A pick-up truck was situated right next to it with a flashing light. Plenty of room for free parking. The haunt building is painted with a clown logo on the front with gargoyles on pedestals. The paint is peeling all over the artwork.
Wait Entertainment: Did not see any not to many people were inline so we got in quickly.
Length of Event: It was about 10 - 12 minutes
Actor Performance: Missed the mark on timing, kids screaming and the usual arrg. Not to scary
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: This year they did away with the guided tour. It was the best thing they could have done. Did not run into any other group but that's because the crowd was small and they were able to send us in a timed space. This will get hectic when the crowd gets larger.
Appropriate Ages: 8 and up
Props / Special FX: The best prop was the fire room but, seeing how I have seen it last year it is a bit dated and old. As a matter of fact the whole haunt is a rehash of last year and previous years.
Costumes / Make-up: The costumes were o.k. as usual but needs more work on the make-up and ditch the masked. The make-up needs to have an understanding of facial contours to high light the expressions of the actor.
Summary: I have been the his haunt several years first when they were on the old base in a big building that was 2 or 3 stories. That was the best I have ever seen. Then I have been to there haunt in the current building the first year they got back to Rantoul. It was a cool haunt with new ideas. Now my third time (last year) I thought they were going to be like the previous years. It was a rehash like I mentioned earlier slightly disappointed. That brings me to this years haunt. They have you go in a different direction and that is supposed to be different. They had the same old haunts but just in a different order. The room with the trees, fireroom, labcoat room, Michael Myers room, etc. If you remember lasts years haunt, it will be the same this year. Just saying.
