Visibility / Location:
There were plenty of signs and arrows all around town that made this haunt a breeze to find. There were lots of lights and music that made it really accessible.
The wait for my group with speed passes was less that 5 minutes but the regular line was averaging between 1 and 2 hours. There was music playing and music videos displayed while you wait. There were concessions and fun activities in tents surrounding the waiting area of the haunt. I was jealous we had bought speed passes and didn't have a chance to explore the activities with the others in the waiting area.

The actors didn't seem to have a handle on crowd control here. There were a lot of issues with our group running into the group in front of us and then the group behind us caught up too. It really ruined a lot of the scares for us.
This haunt was a lot of fun. The wait time was about an hour when my group arrived, but there was no shortage of activities and concessions to keep us preoccupied. There were fun actors running around while we waited so it just felt like part of the haunt.
Once inside there were tons of effects and wonderful set designs we hadn't seen before. There was a crawling area that was very unsettling and a few animatronics that were downright scary! Our whole group was disappointed by the haunt's inability to space groups far enough apart. We ended up grouped together and missed out on a few scares. Other than that, it was an engaging and unique haunt that is definitely worth your time. The actors put their all into it, and you can tell a few of them have been doing this awhile. Terror on Washington Street is full of talented, and undeniably scary actors and sets.
