Bought my Fast Pass tickets ahead of time through Groupon which is one of the best things any haunt can do. It made my wait practically nonexistent. The line that everyone is supposed to be waiting in though is very neat. There are huge statues of werewolves and other creatures and it looked like there might have been a stage, but there was nothing going on so I’m not sure. The reading of the rules was by the girl who was controlling the flow of people so it was quick and to the point. Once we got in, it seemed like it went by VERY quickly. And it did. We were in there for 24 minutes all together. There are two different haunts and each one was over much too soon. The sets were so beautiful, I could cry. The detail and immensity of each room and each pathway was something I’ve only dreamed of. From the outside, the place looks massive; however, I really would like to see the space used up more. There were a lot of rooms that were just big, wide open spaces. The costumes and makeup were fantastic, especially the line actors. Most of the scares seemed to be rather recycled and all of the actors in the haunt were popping out to scare me as opposed to actually ACTING. With everything being said, I can’t wait to see what next year and the year after that will bring.

    This year was a bit of a bummer for 13th Floor. As I’ve been going for a few years now, there were a few things that stood out that I didn’t like. First, the lines/gates were too close to one another, it was getting packed in the waiting area so I couldn’t look anywhere without someone in my face or someone staring at me. The other thing that really bugged me was that they send in the groups too frequently and in large quantities. If you have a small group, they will still stick you with another group, I think my overall group of two groups was around ten people. Not fun because the actors will only scare the ones in front of the line so those who are trapped in the back already know what to expect because the folks in front already got spooked. There was not a long wait, no more than an hour and I personally would have waited a bit longer so my group could have been alone and not bumped into the group in front of us or had a group from behind catch up. That’s my biggest peeve when it comes to Haunted Houses. Other than that, the house was good, great visuals and set-ups, disgusting scents added and the actors were really good at scaring you and their costumes/makeup was very well done. Hopefully they space out the time they let groups in and personally, I enjoy it the MOST when they let just your group in and don’t stick you with other groups. Out of the 4 Haunted houses I’ve gone to this year, this was the only one that sticks groups together, the other houses have let our group in go alone. 🙂 I also forgot to mention, there are no pitch black areas/rooms at this one, everything is faintly lit to a certain point which also made it more predictable to see where people were hiding. I may or may not come back next year. I feel the further you travel away from Chicago and the suburbs, the better the Haunted Houses get.
