Once we arrived at the haunt, it was obvious we were there. There was a huge hearst out in front that said Mars Haunted House on the side. There were also multiple other signs around on the building. The line was not too long and there were creatures waiting outside to greet us and entertain us while we waited. The length of time we waited in line was only about 15 minutes total. Pretty good considering the fact that the line is usually around the corner of the block! When we went upstairs we were greeted by a ghoul and she brought us into a dark room. In this first room we listened to a voice that spoke about the legend of the Mars House. Once this was done, we were let in on our own and it was super dark. The house was creepy with narrow hallways leading to each new room. Some of my favorite rooms had a girl crawling around on the ground, and a room with a guy reciting a willy wonka speech in a creepy voice. Overall, Mars was, as always, fun. Screams and jumping came and went but we also laughed quite a bit at the actors. Overall, I would say that if you live in the Milwaukee area, it is a must see. It not only is right in the middle of town, but it also has a huge history and has been around for years, with people coming back year after year!
