Visibility/Location: Very visible off the street, it's a home haunt, so it's the only house on the street that's all lit up with cars parked all up & down the street. Good signage too posted high up where everyone can see off the road.

Wait Entertainment: None but the atmosphere was great here, people everywhere around us. & A great halloween atmosphere.

Length of Event: About 7-8 minutes to walk thru the whole thing.

Actor Performance: Great. They actually had quite a bit of actors in this haunt, considering it's a home haunt we were quite impressed. Some were more passionate than others in playing their role, we esp enjoyed the girl who jumped out of bed & at the same time another monster coming out with a saw in hand, made for a great double jump scare.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Perfect. No flaws here.

Appropriate Ages: 9+ up.

Props / Special FX: They did a great job on props & FX, you can tell being this home haunts been up & running for 25 years, they keep adding to the props in the sets, making for a nice little experience for the people walking thru.

Costumes / Make-up: Nice job here too guys. Very good work on the costuming & everything was themed for its fitting room.

Summary: Being we have never been to a home haunt before, we had no idea what to expect. But this was def worth the drive, and they only took donations so we threw in $7 bucks to support the cause. These guys did a great job, & I would've easily paid 10 as I can appreciate a good haunt that clearly a lot of work was put into building these sets. They had a good mixup of diff ages, so not all the actors were kids....They were very creative in their set designs, we really enjoyed walking thru this haunt! I would highly recommend for anyone looking for a good home haunt that doesn't even charge a fee to go in. They simply take donations, & we would be glad to continue supporting this haunt for years to come, as it was a splended fun time from beginning to end!

Visibility/Location: Very close to downtown Joliet, located in Joliet's Cathedral area.

Wait Entertainment: Kept you somewhat entertained before you go in. They had an electric chair set up that you can sit in and take pictures on. They have a couple things behind the wall that keep on popping up. They have a few wandering monsters outside of the house that mess with you.

Length of Event: 10-15 minutes

Actor Performance: From beginning to end they stay in character. This includes even some of the younger kids that dress up creepy and stick to their act. I'm very sarcastic to the monsters as I go through and they don't break once and sometimes play along. 

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Spaced out nicely. We were able to stay in our group of 6 without bumping into a previous group or have the next group waiting on us.

Appropriate Ages: 3rd graders and older.

Props / Special FX: They've been doing this house for 25 years and this is our 3rd time through. We're fortunate to live only a few blocks away and I can't believe how professionally done this house is. The neatest prop that they have is the tunnel that you walk through that is spinning with a bunch of different colors. You literally feel like you start spinning by the end of it.

Costumes / Make-up: Don't have any other words except that they're well done!

Summary: This is a haunted house that is fun for both children and adults. Being in a residential area, it's amazing the job that they have done with bringing people through the neighborhood. They used to be open on Halloween except for this year and maybe last year. We live just on the other side of Raynor and we could tell how busy they were by seeing how many kids were trick or treating on their side of Raynor Ave. This house was so successful that they came to an agreement with the City of Joliet, for safety reasons, to not be opened on Halloween. The police used to close Western Ave. since this house drew so many people on Halloween. It's a great success for a residential haunted house. You will have fun, be scared but not too scared, and you will leave this house with a smile on your face guaranteed! I hope they do this for another 25 years!!!
