The theme on the trail is slightly ambiguous. Fish people, Mike Myers and evil hillbillies approach you throughout the nearly mile-long walk. Despite a less than coherent theme, you can’t help but be awed by the amount of detail put into the trail. I was most impressed by two actual school buses planted nose down in the ground.
The other houses at Illusion are also well done. The 3-D clowns left me feeling a little dizzy, but that was easily corrected by removing the glasses. The Egyptian tomb had special effects that could, at times, rival Kings Island. If you have the time, I recommend you see all four. If you’re short on time, head to the Haunted Trail.
