The Walking Ned
Visibility / Location:
Nightmare is in Beloit, several blocks west of Harlem. They had a big sign on Harlem that wasn't lit well, but it had a red and green light on it. There was also a big sign outside their building.
There wasn't much for wait entertainment. Although I did not see anyone, I heard someone screaming by another car.

Smooth. I was the only person in line when I showed up.
Nightmare at the Terrace starts out with a couple of rooms to look like an inside of a house. There was a couple of actors in the first couple of rooms doing a lot if screaming, so much it made me worry about their vocal cords. There was a room toward the beginning that had a giant killer bunny, which I thought was amusing.
There was a room with a bunch of heads on the wall, which was pretty creepy. The next room had two scare actors just dancing together, so I was able to cut in and dance with both of them. Not necessarily scary, but I thought that was fun.
There was a circus/freak show area that started with an evil fortune teller, which led in to two different clown areas. Even though there was not a lot to the rooms, they found good places to hide and pop out and scare people.
There was a great room towards the end that was full of scarecrows, which was a nice touch. And just when you think the house is done, there are a few more surprises in store.
Nightmare at the Terrace did not have a lot to the individual rooms. The walls, which were black, mostly, did not have a lot more to them. They tried to concentrate on having just enough to scare you. Most of the rooms were built pretty open, so it doesn't have that claustrophobic feel that most houses have. This house seems to be built more for families in the area, as most of the actors are, I believe, local kids. That being said, there were several surprises, some good pop outs by the kids that did scare me.
