Clinton's Terror On Washington Street Haunted House

Clinton, IL 61727

Visited: 10/10/15


Reviewed By: CorpseChild
Visibility/Location: Washington Street is easy to find in Clinton and once you are on Washington Street the road is blocked off at the haunted house. There are plenty of signs showing the way.

There is plenty of parking located on the street around the haunt.
Wait Entertainment: Once you purchased your tickets, there was a large outdoor waiting area. The Simpson’s Halloween Special was playing on a large screen on the side of the building.

Alongside the ticket booth were a couple of vendors. Handcrafted jewelry, food and beverages, and a Green Screen photo booth was there for people to enjoy while waiting.

Leatherface with his chainsaw walked the crowd and made sure that you couldn’t relax. He was just making you ready for what was to come once you entered the house.
Admission Price: $10.00

Scare Factor: Medium
Crowd Control: Staff did a great job on spacing out the patrons. Once we were in the house we did not see or hear other groups.


Once you purchased your tickets you were given a group number. There were 2 of us so we were placed with 2 other groups. Once your number is called you stood at the entrance and the rules of the house were read to you.

One area that Clinton has always excelled at is their flair for decorating. Each scene is highly detailed. Making your way through rooms and narrow hallways, there were a lot of scares. I know there were some areas that had drop down walls and photos, because I could hear them at the front of the group. As I stated before, we were in a group of 6 adults, so by the time I reached where the scare was coming from the scene had been reset. A group of 6 adults is too many to go through at a time.

Once you descend into the depths of the house, yes the basement, you feel like you entered an area where the dead don’t stay dead. Looking back up the stairs, I noticed that the door was closing which gave you the feel that you were locked in, and there was no way out. One standout scene was the room with the coffin. The flower girl did a great job of interacting with the patrons.

A pitch black room was another area that stood out, the Demon possession room. It does not stay dark for long as the Demon in that room comes alive, and tried to come after his next victim. The possessed woman and sound in that room really jolt you as you want out of that room fast.

Once you leave the basement, there is more upstairs waiting for you. The Crazy’s in the slatted hallway maze will try to get you to stay. They look like they are locked up safely; but I loved hearing someone in my group say, “Oh NO, they are loose”.

One of the final scenes that I really enjoyed was Alice. Yes, this is Alice in Wonderland, which appeared to come from a picture in the wall. The actress performed it very well by just staring at the house’s victims as they walked through her room. She did this all while a large bloody playing card protruded from her chest.

Clinton’s Terror on Washington does a great job utilizing masks and make-up. Some masks are from your favorite horror movies. A majority of the actors were in make-up, something that Clinton does well.

I have visited Clinton’s Terror on Washington almost every year for about the last 10 years, and they always do a great job of changing the rooms up and adding new scares. Give them a visit and let them give you what you are looking for this Halloween season, a good scare!
