Visibility/Location: The location is very visible... outdoor signs were good. The inside wait was great.

Wait Entertainment: We were there early, so there was a short line. A couple of actors were at the entrance - a young lady in a prom dress-gone-bad and a guy that got into a cat fight... scratches on his face.

Length of Event: 12 minutes. We walked pretty slowly and looked at set designs, which were good in many places.

Actor Performance: Most actors were on their mark... some missed. There were only four in our group, but we had a good time.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: No problem at all... we were there early.

Appropriate Ages: 10 & up

Props / Special FX: Sets were well done.

Summary: This was my first time visiting the haunt. All in all, I enjoyed this haunted house. The gal giving the rules was pretty intense, getting into our "personal space" while her partner kept circling our group, which was somewhat unnerving. The crawl had a couple of unexpected hidden turns. The vortex was pretty cool. The hallway with scenes from horror films was great, especially Jigsaw... I won't say anymore so I don't spoil it for others! We left this haunt and went on to The Scream Haunted Adventure. Two haunted houses in Decatur / Forsyth makes for a fun night out!

Visibility/Location: The location is great... follow the directions on the website and you'll drive right there. Outside lighted signs help too!

Wait Entertainment: The Vampiress was excellent, hissing at us throughout the line. Her red eyes were penetrating.

Length of Event: 15 minutes... we walked slowly through the haunt.

Actor Performance: On target in most places.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Our group was small, but we moved through the haunt slower than usual. We allowed one group to go past us so that we could look at the sets, but they didn't mind. They were pretty excited. :-)

Appropriate Ages: 10 & up

Props / Special FX: Special effects and props were good, with a lot of time spent on making sure the sets were designed just so.

Costumes / Make-up: Mostly makeup, which is nice for the actors. A few masks were used too.

Summary: This was my first time visiting The Scream Haunted Adventure. I'm not easily frightened, so I enjoyed watching those in my group who were excitable and easy marks. I liked the double vortex but didn't enjoy the stairs right afterwards. The forrest was good as was the forrest monster! The white sheet hallway was different as was the airbag hallway. The tour was fun and we also enjoyed the "Warehouse Tour". We visited both the Decatur Jaycees Haunted House and The Scream Haunted Adventure, making a night of it. How lucky Decatur / Forsyth is to have two haunts to enjoy!
