Congratulations to Jeff “Fluffy” Walker, Winner of HauntedHouseChicago.com’s Jim Warfield Acting Award 2016

Posted

Each year, HauntedHouseChicago.com awards the top actor/actress from that calendar year. The award is named after Jim Warfield of Raven’s Grin Inn. For more on this award please click here.

This year, there was one actor that dazzled us with his show and blew us away with his showstopping performance. Some may view him as somewhat of a celebrity at his attraction, others like to call him a friend and bring him gifts.

Haunted House Chicago would like to formally congratulate the recipient of the 2016 Jim Warfield Acting Award: Jeff Walker as “Fluffy” from Statesville Haunted Prison in Crest Hill, IL!

In November 2015, Statesville Haunted Prison headlined the Legendary Haunt Tour, an annual event that takes place in a different region of the USA each year, touring haunted attractions that are considered truly “Legendary”. The Zombie Army was both excited and humbled at the overwhelmingly positive response from hundreds of their mentors and peers in the haunted house industry, and used the feedback they received as the foundation for Statesville’s 2016 updates. Watch as the crew guts entire sections of both Statesville and City of the Dead so they can make things better and, of course, SCARIER for 2016!
