  • Horrifying

    Halloween was always my best of season and I mostly enjoy all the haunts and hay rides. But taking the last ride to my final resting place is out of the world. Wanted to experience that and we dashed to R Acres. This place was mind blowing. You have everything you need for a perfect Halloween destination. Horrifying actors, bloody scenes and mind sucking visual effects. The last ride was unique. Was alone lying like dead corpse in a coffin. It was mind numbing and you will really feel for the dead. The coffin is drawn by an old hearse and it will dawn that you are not dead only after the end of the ride. Hoping to experience again next year.

  • Email Verified Scare, fear, fun

    Had a fantastic time at R Acres. We had gone with a big group of friends and family and this place happened to be the best to spend during the Halloween season. It was party time as soon as we entered and the atmosphere was great. It was beaming with gore and action. The last ride was what all of us were looking forward and it did not disappoint us. You get the creeps as soon as you get inside the coffin and you are on your own. I was totally freaked out and hoped the ride would end soon. It was complete with an old hearse. The cast were a dedicated lot and thorough professional. Kudos to the costumed and makeup department. It looked do realistic you will scream your lungs out with just a look. It is a mixed bag of scare, fear, action, fun and laughter. 5 stars.

  • Buried alive!!

    R Woods had changed since last time. There were some new attractions, fresh props that would make you jump and new gory characters roaming around. The set was well laid out with lots of attention to details. The R woods would creep you out if you have an inherent fear for darkness. I ran and stumbled down few times. Scares were plenty. In few instances, I and my friend were screaming nonstop. Being buried alive was a unique experience. I would like to come again with my BF. Most likely, we’ll plan our visit soon. Recommend it to all scare lovers.

  • Test your fear factor

    Fantastic place, great scares and skilled staff. That is R Acres for you. Organized a family get together and each one had something great about this place. The cast was talented and knew the pulse of human behavior. They timed the scares quite well that we did not see it coming. We were divided into small bunches which was useful in increasing the fear factor. The mist frightening moments were in the coffin. You get to feel how the final ride is going to be and you will be spell bound. Will return back next year.

  • Email Verified Absolute terror

    Well.. it was absolute terror in R Acres. My wife screamed non-stop. The walk through the woods scared the daylights out of us. The person chased us in the dark. There were some scary props, which was not in the previous years. The owners had also come up with some new scary characters, some of which were really grotesque. The last ride was my favourite. Burying alive was one of a kind experience. I am planning to return with my friends.

  • Email Verified Scary last ride

    R Acres gave my kids the absolute scary experience. There were few props that scared the crap out of them. Even though I don’t get scared easily, I was also startled couple of times to be honest, especially in the R woods. Boris was mean as they say. There were few other gory characters who made my little ones scream. The last ride was awesome scary too. Ticket prices were reasonable, even though I would not have minded had they been a little bit cheaper. The staff were friendly and cooperative. I would recommend this place to anyone who wish to enjoy a nice scary experience in Illinois.

  • Email Verified Never seen such scary props

    I’ve never seen such scary props, and that in the dark. The trail through the R woods could creep you out, especially if you are alone. It is dark, scary, and you can’t say when something will scare the air out of you. The character Boris was creepy and far scary than I anticipated. No wonder, I ran for my life. Being buried was a creepy and unreal experience. I would mark the Last Ride as my favourite hence. Planning to bring my wife next time. Overall, a nice and creepy experience that I rejoice now.
