Signage / Visibility / Location

Easy to find using directions off of Hauntedwisconsin.com. No real signs along the way, would be a good idea to add some. Pretty easy to spot the haunt, lights, banner, traffic directors, lots of people.

Wait Area / Line Entertainment

We waitied about an hour. People can wait in their heated gym. There was food being sold and video games to play. It's a good way for them to cash-in on your wait time. Yet, it makes it more enjoyable while waiting. Plus they called ticket numbers, so you didn't have to just wait in a line, you were free to roam about. There were also a few characters roaming.

Length

It took us about 15-20 min. to get through the house.

Actors' Performance

Being my first time there, I was impressed. I thought this haunt was pretty unique. Without giving too much away, I thought the use of 3-D glasses was cool. (But, I hear they've done that in the past.) This house deals with more scenes and setups then just people popping out at you. But, they had a little of both. This is definetly one of the most colorful haunted houses I've been to. They had a lot of creative ideas in this haunt, enough to seperate it from others. The deeper in the house we got, the more creepy it seemed to be. Going with a group of 7, they waited until our entire group was in each room before they scared us, which was good because we all got scared, and not just people up front. The costumes were also pretty cool. There were a few, they must have spent a fortune on. The creepy clown in the closet was cool. They mess with your mind sometimes and you're not sure what to expect next. And the last room was a very cool effect.

Appropriate For

12+

Summary

Overall, I liked the house. For some reason, when I got to the end, I thought it would have been a little bit longer. But, I think they did a
great job with the people. There were a few times when they stopped us in between rooms to wait for the group ahead of us to clear out, which was good because then we didn't lose any of the scares. More haunts should do this type of thing. Otherwise, you keep running into the group ahead of you. However honestly, there were a couple of scenes that were just plain corny. People popped out, and it was
more funny then scary. You could almost tell that the characters knew it too. If we're paying good money and if it seems corny, why not change it up? Don't waste time just so people have a room to go through. But overall, most of the house was
very well done. Woth $7.00, heck yeah. This was probably the most affordable satisfying haunt we've done yet. Nice job guys. I'd come back next year.
