The Wisconsin Fear Grounds

Visit Website Add to My Favorites


This year, “We’re not only going to Scare you; we are going to @#$% you up for life!” There is a reason the Wisconsin Fear Grounds was rated the #1 Haunted House in America by Haunted Attraction Magazine, Haunted House, and CNBC.

Returning for our 13th year is Morgan Manor, where over 10,000 square feet of screams is taunting you to come inside. Don’t worry, we still have the surrender rule so that when you get too freaked out, you can still quit.

Brand new for 2016 is the madness we call “TWISTED.” This haunted house is just wrong and the one place where you will lose yourself and all touch with reality. It is so wickedly evil… It’s Twisted.

Unstable...20,000 square feet of non stop terror and wickedness await you around every corner. Bring a friend, leave alone.

You asked, and we answered. By popular demand, our sick team of designers has come up with a new Escape room challenge, “Zaszu.” Can you escape in under 5 minutes before Zaszu consumes your soul? If you think so, then jump right in. You weren’t going to live forever anyway.

Now for the really BIG SURPRISE – “Night Terrors: 13 Hours of FEAR!” It’s the only horrifically wicked Saturday Night Slumber Party in Wisconsin. Join us on October 8th for the most interactive and terrifying Halloween experience of your life as you get up close and personal with the undead throughout a nocturnal adventure. Everyone has seen a scary movie, but Night Terrors gives you and your friends the chance to actually star in one!

We know… you are that one person who can’t be scared. You are afraid of nothing. You laugh while others scream. CHALLENGE ACCEPTED. Join the other brave souls as you attempt to spend one long October night with our horrific horde. You will pray for morning to come as Night Terrors rolls on. Your fate is sealed. Your friends are gone!

Expect the unexpected as you find yourself immersed in a terror-filled night: from the sounding of “Taps” at dusk to the sunrise with “Reveille.” Take in the beauty of nature, and enjoy the great outdoors. That is, until the Fear Grounds eerily comes to life as darkness falls.

Your mind will wander as you walk in the shadow of Waukesha County’s oldest graveyard and through the Dark and Foreboding woods that surround those tortured souls. Is that a coyote you hear? Or could there be something even more sinister just around the next bend? Listen to the screams of your fellow campers, as they echo through the fog and over the grounds. Enjoy the shared laughter of your friends, right up to that moment where terror stops in for a visit at your campsite. Now things just got real…

Our Camp Counselors are dying to assist and guide you throughout this adventure.

WARNING: There are a limited number campsites available, so see our website for additional information and to book now!
