Evil Intentions Haunted House
900 Grace Street
Elgin, IL 60120

Visited: 10/03/15


Reviewed By: The Walking Ned
Visibility/Location: Evil Intentions is located in a warehouse in Elgin. The area is well lit, with a giant light in the area indicating parking. They have their own lot across the street from the event, and they have a hearse out in front with their logo. Beyond that, it is not easy to see from main streets, and I did not see any signage beyond the limited information in the front.
Wait Entertainment: There were several actors walking through the line, including a scary doctor wrapped in bandages, and chainsaw person, and a morbidly obese person wanting to lick and eat everybody.
Admission Price: $25.00
Parking: Free

Scare Factor: Very High
Crowd Control: Flow was very smooth, we didnít have people catch up to us until the maze part.


I would like to start by saying the event started out on the wrong foot, because, for some reason, people were not let in to the building until 7:40pm, even though opening was supposed to be at 7:30pm. Then, once we got tickets, we were stuck in the holding area for another ten minutes, and this is all before we got in line to go in to the house itself.

Inside Evil Intentions, the scares are early and often, right when you first walk in to the house. The beginning starts in a room of caskets, followed by a short maze. This leads in to several rooms, that, I donít want to give anything away, but they are very scary. This leads in to another maze and at the end there are several more actors waiting to scare you. Then, there is the oil drum room, which gets scary because you never know where the actors will pop out at you.

After several more scary rooms, this leads in to a prison area, where the criminals pop out of everywhere. This then leads in to another maze, which then leads you down the stairs in to a hospital area, which included the doctor from outside. This then leads in to a very creepy doll room inside the hospital, which is also set up as an area for the insane.

After the hospital area, you are led outside to the second part of the house, which starts out in a very smoky room full of hooded people. The fog makes it very hard to find your way through the room. This then leads in to a maze with wood slats, with several actors ready to pop out when you least expect it. This then leads in to an area with many angel statues, with many good places for someone to sneak out and scare you. This then leads in to a church room with more hooded people. This leads in to another room of angel statues, which goes in to another room of hooded people. This then goes in to the collapsing wall area, which leads in to another maze, but the walls are in the shape of a coffin, which becomes very claustrophobic and confusing. Once you figure out the maze, you are home freeÖ.or are you?

I am keeping a lot of this vague for a good reason, this house is really scary, and I donít want to give away any of the many surprises in the house itself. The rooms are really well done, and the scares come at you all the time, there are very few let ups in the house. I highly recommend this house as one of the best.
