Review Posted: 10/25/11 on Haunted Illinois

Overall Score: 9/10

Scare Factor: High | Atmosphere: Very Good

Visibility/Location: Very easy to find. Signs posted nicely.

Wait Entertainment: Not too bad. I miss “Steve” while waiting in line. But the werewolf and especially Chucky were entertaining.

Length of Event: No clue honestly. Had such a great time getting lost in the maze within the haunt (several times) and with the characters stalking and scaring the whole time….time wasn”t an issue…only scarey fun!!

Actor Performance: Very good! Props to you all!! LOVED the clowns! Mimicking us, clownish evil giggles…creepy clown guys!!! Bravo!!

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Very good. Bumped into another group briefly while lost in the maze but very quickly lost them too.

Appropriate Ages: If your child handles the element of surprise and very dark places, then age is for the parent to decide.

Props / Special FX: Good. Always love the hard talented efforts of the Henry Street gang. Vortex tunnel, The green lasers, the genius simplicity of the clown room ropes…very pleased!

Costumes / Make-up: Very good!

Summary: Wonderful time….make sure you hit this haunt!! Well worth it. The vortex tunnel and the green lasers (I wanted to spend more time in those areas just enjoying it).Love the maze within the haunt. Maybe a few noodles in places for tall guys…my husband wacked his face on plywood in the maze…but was ok.

Characters all did a very nice believable job. Guy in the kitchen got the biggest jump out of me and the chainsaw guy, body bag room and especially the clowns…the clowns…so many creepy clowns stalking us…paired with my daughter fearing them…equals fabulous!!! Thanks for the scare!!
