Review

Signage / Visibility / Location

This attraction had great signage once you got closer to the haunted grounds (in the somewhat-creepy industrial part of Green Bay!) The locals know where it is, if one were to get lost and be wandering the area.

Wait Area / Line Entertainment

The ticket booth opened at 6:30. Coincidentally, that's when we got there. As I suspected, the line was already a good 75+ people long. There were video screens showing parts (one can assume) of the haunted house itself. Although, in retrospect, I don't remember seeing any of the people in the haunted house that I saw in the video. Not that it really matters. The point is, it really set the scene. The waiting area was in this swampy, thicket-type area, too, which made me think that something ghoulish holding a chain saw was going to pop out at me. But the other side of me was the road, which reall detracted from it.

Most Unique

Ah, where to begin... At $12 a pop, I would hope that they'd have some neat things, which they did. While I can't say that I was scared so much, I did enjoy the ambiance. 1. First of all, this whole event takes place at the historic train museum in Green Bay. While I was the 75th person in line, we all made it onto the train, which was an old Metra (top and bottom seats). After everyone's in, the lights go out, the music begins, and on goes the strobe light and fog. Naturally, there were ghouls to haunt the train aisles (I would've been disappointed if there weren't). The train drops you off at the haunted house, where there's yet another line. The house itself looked like something out of a western. I couldn't quite tell if the facade was real, but I could see that the house went far back. Lots of rooms. 2. Three rooms stuck in my mind as fabulously done. The first of which was the clown room. The center "attraction" of this room was the freakiest part of all, not to mention the clowns running around... 3. Hell. There's a great Hell at Terror on the Fox, complete with winding, stone paths, smoldering pits, and a very large, very impressive demon. And when I say large, I mean HUGE. 4. The last room I remember was this scientist's room. It was high-tech. There wasn't anything super scary about it, but it was neat to look at all the gadgets, computers and such.

Actors' Performance

Fine. There was almost too many actors. Each room had, like, three people on average, which really detracted from the overall scariness of the room itself. I loved the people lurking outside the house and around the line of waiting people.
