Haunts 2009

Adam's Blog

After three days and 385 miles I have attended my four assigned haunts for the 2009 Review Crew. Please keep an eye out for them as they should be posted early this week. As a sneak peak, let me tell you Neenah's Most Haunted, The Haunted Mansion, Oconto Jaycees Trail of Terror, and Terror Trail provided my fiancee and I the best weekend of haunting in recent memory. Please check my reviews to see what I thought of each individually!

Thanks for the scares

MacabreSnob

I want to extend a belated thank you to a few haunts for the hospitatlity and good times given to myself, my friends and family:Spooky Stalks was great again this year.  We went on a moonless night which made the Milwaukee County corn maze that much scarier.  Bruce, the owner, put on a fantastic show (even though they aren't that scary, right Bruce?) and even mustered a a yelp out of a veteran like me.  Good job guys, that's not an easy task!  The maze has new scenes and scares for 2009 and is definitely worth the short drive up...

First haunts of the season

Halloween Hodgepodge

We finally got to get out to some haunts this season! The staff of HauntedWisconsin.com along with our Biggest Fan contest winner and guest headed out for a night of haunting. Our first stop was Paulo's Pizza where we shared an enormous pizza and a huge bowl of garlic bread. We then headed to Monster Mayhem, right in the basement of Paulo's Pizza! We met with the friendly staff and got a quick behind the scenes tour. They really put a lot of work into their haunt and it shows! This is only the second year of Monster Mayhem, but...

Biggest Fan Haunt Night

Andy's Web Log

I'm sure you will be hearing more details from Johnny shortly but here is a quick summary of tonight.Our biggest fan contest winner, Teri, may actually travel farther and to more haunts than we do! I'm feeling a little pressure to step it up and travel farther and to more haunts so as to not be outdone. Jenny and I have often wondered who the other people are when we are working on the site in February and see the counter read "12 visitors online." It's nice to be able to put some faces to the numbers.We met for pizza...

Historical Reviews

Andy's Web Log

Ever want to see reviews from previous years? Well now you can without digging through our archives. Event operators have been asking for this feature for quite a while and we finally made it happen.Jenny and I over the past couple weeks did quite a bit of sorting through the last seven years of reviews, importing everything to the new site, and connecting the reviews to the correct events. The intent is to make the new URLs permanent so if you link to a review using the new year URLs, that link should keep working for a long time.The historical reviews...

Andy's Web Log

This is just a quick note to anyone who missed Hubertus House of Horror last year. The haunt season is just starting so now is a great time to visit those big name haunts that fill up past capacity towards the latter half of October.Jenny and I have visited Hubertus House of Horror many years in the past but when we went last year, the event was already sold out at 7pm!  The operators took us on a tour of the house and it was easy to see why.  They have really stepped up the effects with some big and...

Trick-or-treat ... when is Halloween?

Halloween Hodgepodge

Okay, it's time for a rant. What is wrong with some communities in Wisconsin (and elsewhere)? Do they not know when Halloween is? It's on the calendar! October 31st, always. Even so, some communities have decided that having trick-or-treat is safer on a Sunday before Halloween. This year Halloween falls on a Saturday. So I thought, great! Trick-or-treat will finally be held on Halloween everywhere, right? WRONG! There are still some communities that have decided to hold trick-or-treat the Sunday before the 31st. I think this takes all of the fun out of Halloween. Once trick-or-treating is over, many kids...
