Another new haunted attraction for 2016 is The SicKHouse located in Mokena, IL. Brought to you by two creative masterminds in the haunt industry, we knew we were going to be in for a real treat.
As we entered the attraction, we met Rufus Screamz, who told us the rules of the asylum and everything we will be encountering once inside. Based on the backstory of Dr. Sam K and nurse Samantha H who opened this asylum that would be home to only the world’s most unique sicknesses.
The SicKHouse brings a mix of classic scenes and twists it with modern day haunting techniques. Within the walls we encountered a great cast of actors, ready to attack at a moment’s notice.
As we made our way through, we encountered the dentist office, an extensive laboratory, and many other dark filled rooms containing some of your worst nightmares. The scenes and artwork were beautifully put together and made you feel as if you were engulfed in the facility.
One thing that the SicKHouse did well was its tight hallways. Bringing you slightly out of your comfort level, winding your way through the darkness, not knowing what will jump out at you next.
Once again, the actors encompassing these roles made you feel as if you really were meeting the world’s craziest and sickest patients. From the time you entered the room to the time you leave, the madness never stops and just gets crazier as you go further into the asylum.
The Bottom Line: For its first year, The SicKHouse brought great scene work, acting and a whole lot of thrills and chills, leaving us wanting more! With the creative minds behind this attraction, we can’t wait to see what they come up with in the off-season!
