Visibility/Location: Clintons Terror on Washington Street was easy to find once you found Washington Street. I didnt see any signs on the way into town but the roads blocked off and scary blowups in the middle of the street were very visible.

Wait Entertainment: While waiting outside of the haunted house there were chainsaw welding maniacs and many creatures and ghouls outside acting with the crowd. My person favorite was a couple of t.v.s that allowed you to watch others in the house and actually scare them by remote control from outside.

Length of Event: 15 minutes of thrill

Actor Performance: All actors inside of the house seemed to be right on que. Perfect timing.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Our group ran into another group inside the attraction. You were able to purchase glow in the dark necklaces outside that really helped you navigate your way threw a dark maze.

Props / Special FX: My favorite Special Effect in Terror on Washington Street was a very scary elevator that takes you to another floor and has a huge suprise at the end of the ride. Dont want to ruin it for everyone. There were also many foggy settings and animated props inside of this attraction. I really enjoyed a kitchen scene with refridgerator, cabinets, bloody water running into the sink, and a stove that flys open with a prop lunging out at you.

Costumes / Make-up: All actors inside of the house really fit into there settings. While walking threw a tomb in egypt, there were many mummys flying out from secret panels in the walls.

Summary: Terror on Washington Street is having another great year. They always keep me and my family coming back. I enjoy seeing all of the new settings and animations that they have every year. They really seemed to step up there scares from the previous years I have gone. All of there monsters inside the house really seemed alot more matured than previous years. I dont know if its only me, but when someone twice as tall as me jumps out from a secret passage its alot more intimidating than a elementary school sized monster. Another great year for Washington Street. Cant wait for the next.

Visibility/Location: This was my fist year to the Decatur scream and we found it easily. The glowing signs and police cars are visible from blocks away.

Wait Entertainment: There wasnt any wait entertainment while we were there.

Length of Event: about 9 minutes.

Actor Performance: I believe this event would be alot better if the actors in the house werent so young. I am only 5'3 and alot of the scared were even shorter than I am and just didnt have a low tone to there voice.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: The group behind us caught up before we were even out of the 3rd room. We were only a group of 2 so maybe they wanted to push groups threw quicker? Even though there wasnt a line at all.

Appropriate Ages: That night it definatly was. My four year old would have been fine.

Props / Special FX: The vortex tunnels were unbelievable. Best I have EVER been threw.

Costumes / Make-up: Costumes were allright. Alot of sneakers and little makeup if any in some rooms. Tie died and even white costumes or clothes, in really dark parts of the house.

Summary: First year I have been threw the Decatur Scream and I will probobly go back next year. I am hoping that they were just having a really off night. For future references, I would tell your crew not to scare on the stairs. It seemed soooo dangerous. Really enjoyed the time that was put into designing the sets though. The sheets set off by blacklights were amazing. Have never seen that before. Many firsts for me threw this haunted house.
