Halloween Cartoons

Halloween Hodgepodge

Two more Halloween cartoons will on this October! Local Milwaukee antenna station 49.2 WBMEDT2 will be showing Fat Albert's Halloween Special today at 5:30pm and tomorrow (Halloween) from 7-9pm. And ABC will be showing Scared Shrekless on Halloween at 7pm. Rudy and his new friend Devery plan to spend Halloween playing practical jokes on the elderly. They both take aim on Mrs. Bakewell, an old widow living in a spooky house by the graveyard. But the kids get the ultimate scare when two of them don't return from "trick or treating!" Did Mrs. Bakewell have something to do with their...

Dominion of Terror

Events

The HauntedWisconsin.com staff just went through Dominion of Terror in Sheboygan and the entire experience was fantastic. We were disturbed in the nursing home, eaten by zombies in the graveyard, soiled in a very unsanitary bathroom and disoriented and startled in many other scenes. Dominion of Terror is open tonight, Sunday night, and Monday night. Do not miss this event!

Overview - Village of Terror

Halloween Hodgepodge

Village of TerrorAttended on Saturday, October 8 This was my first time attending the Village of Terror and I can say I will definitely return! I’ve never attended such a unique event/haunt before and wish we would have spent the entire night here as we didn’t get to see everything they had. The Village of Terror consists of several haunts, magic shows, shops and other entertainment. Throughout the grounds we saw zombies and vampires roaming about. Unfortunately, we only had time to go through three of their haunted attractions. If I remember correctly, I believe the first one was the...

Overview - Dreadwood Haunted Forest

Halloween Hodgepodge

Dreadwood Haunted ForestAttended on Friday, October 7Dreadwood is located in the middle of nowhere. At least that’s what it feels like to someone who doesn’t know the area at all. We found the entrance easily as there was a red light that shone onto the trees. They also have some signs that show you were to go nearby. We pulled in and weren’t too sure where to go. There was no one or any signs pointing out where to go. We decided to travel the narrow dirt road behind the barn. There were only two or three signs along the...

Overview - Haunted High

Halloween Hodgepodge

Haunted HighAttended on Saturday, October 1st We arrived near closing time and at the beginning of the season so we didn’t we have to wait in line long. Haunted High takes place in an actual abandoned high school.  Their ticket area is located in the gym and is furnished with teacher’s desks skull lamps. The waiting line is also in the gym located behind a divider curtain. They show movie clips on two walls, so waiting in line doesn’t seem to take as long. There are also concessions that are available to purchase before you get into line. Once it...

Overview - The Dark Side

Halloween Hodgepodge

The Dark SideAttended on Saturday, October 1st One of the things I like about The Dark Side is how they combine three haunts into one. This year we received a plastic token with The Dark Side name printed on it when we purchased tickets. I was hoping this was something we’d be able to keep, but were told we would need to hand them to the ticket taker before we entered the haunt. Bummer. You can also purchase concessions, Halloween décor and various Dark Side apparel including hoodies and hats in the same building the ticket booth is located in....

Overview - The Haunted Barn

Halloween Hodgepodge

The Haunted BarnAttended on Saturday, September 24  I've attended The Haunted Barn in the past and I'm always impressed at how much they improve every year. Last year they added Beetlejuice as a character. He provides some great comic relief, and while he may not seem scary, he does a great job at surprise scares! As I got out of the car I saw some people running toward the parking lot screaming and Beetlejuice wasn't  far behind them. What a great way to start off the haunt season! This year, two other characters stood out as well. They were a...
