Halloween Haunts

Visit Website Add to My Favorites

Halloween Haunts combines the make-believe, spooky fun of Halloween with the beauty of nighttime nature to create an event that is fun for the whole family. Halloween Haunts is designed especially for families with children ages 4 to 10.

Don’t miss Milwaukee’s premier family Halloween event. Advance Tickets Required! Buy your tickets early - they ALWAYS sell out.

Wehr’s woodland is transformed into an Enchanted Forest complete with a talking owl, a wise-cracking skeleton and even some rapping arthropods.

Glowing mushrooms and happy ghosts are ready to surprise families that follow the Jack-o-lantern lit trail.

The trip through the Enchanted Forest is just spooky enough to keep the kids enthralled, but is not designed to give anyone a nightmare. In fact, most folks leave with a smile on their face and a new appreciation for nature’s misunderstood creatures.

Visitors are treated to a snack of cider and popcorn and can enjoy games, crafts, face painting and fortune telling in the Gardner Room after their walk. There is even a magic show to enjoy while you wait for your hike to start! It all makes for a great evening of entertainment and education.
