Visibility/Location: Terror on Washington Street is very visible once on Washington street. Street signs and blockades show you exactly where the event is.

Wait Entertainment: They had an awesome dracula outside this year with tents and other misc. things going on. Clinton had always had people outside entertaining but this year seemed stale. Only one guy outside.. However, he was huge... so i guess he made up for 2 men.

Length of Event: about 20 min.

Actor Performance: Usually the actors are on cue and ready to torment.. However this year was a bit stale. No one seemed to get into there atmospheres as much as years before.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Perfect

Appropriate Ages: Probobly not. I would say about 13 and up.

Props / Special FX: Props inside this house are awesome. Special effects seem to improve every year.

Costumes / Make-up: Costumes are fairly good in this event except for alot of flanel button ups.. Not every monster can wear a flanel and fit the part. Certain characters need certain costumes.

Summary: Clintons Terror on Washington Street used to be the premier haunted house in the area, However, over the past two year has become a bit stale and repetitive. In my opinion-- Alot of the rooms seem to work the same way they have in years past. Alot of rooms changed this year, but the rooms that remained the same "literaly" stayed the same.. The monster came from the same spot they did last year and still didnt work. I have always beleieved that the first room in a haunted house should be the best. This year, once again clinton went with the talking heads to tell the rules. Kinda cool, Not scary. belong in a fun house. not a "haunted" house. the frank-nstein on a table room needs to go. Kinda cool, not scary. fun house material. People come to a haunted house to be scared, not entertained. On the positive side, clint had a ton of changes this year and really used lighting to their best ability. This white room with flashing lights and cool designs is AWESOME. best thing i have ever seen in a house. once again tho... no scare factor? We walked threw the whole hallways with not one scare?.?.?.? 
Clown room is really getting eary. They just need to work on being scary and not annoying. Good attempt this year. Worth the price. Will always come back, just hoping it picks up a bit next year.
