Review

What is more scary than a murderous clown? What about the full menagerie from the circus that the murderous clown comes from?

One of the things that this haunted house excels at is the quality of the actors that inhabit the it. Every actor from the fortune teller to the freaks in the freak show excel exceedingly in what they do. They give you a lot interaction and stay in character the entire time. It was my first visit and I was very impressed by the quality and energy of all their actors.

The theme of the haunted house was appealing, as so few haunted events can stick to a theme or a single storyline. The true horrors of the circus come alive in this carnival to the senses. The entire haunted house is a real disorienting trip to the horrors experienced within. Beware the fun house! Beware the freak show!

Finding the haunted house wasn't hard, but finding parking down near the haunted house was a challenge. The trip, though, is really worth it.

This had one of the single scariest scenes in any haunted attraction that I have been in for a long time, though I won't give it away. Be ready and beware!

You have to experience it for yourself. So, get out....join the show.... and laugh yourself to death....

Summary

Something strange has come to Milwaukee. Gilly's Haunted Circus has come. One of the few really themed haunted houses, this largely character-driven event will scare the pants off you.
