Review

This was my first time at Neenah's Most Haunted, and it was well worth the drive.  It is put on by the Neenah Youth Go, which is a youth drop in center in Neenah. Don't let the above fool you, it's not your typical youth run non-profit haunt. They boast 24 years of experience and it really shows through. While it was not the scariest haunt I have ever been to, the actor's really got into their roles. As soon as you step into the first room, you know how the haunt is going to be. When the king gives you the background on the kingdom, you can see through the dedication he has that he has rehearsed the role to perfection. It sets the remainder of the haunt up very well, and you do not know what to expect around the next corner. The haunt uses their space effectively, with quite a few dark mazes and confusing passages. It took us 24 minutes to get through on an average pace, which was the right amount of scenes in the right amount of time. They also had nice use of common things such as strings, ribbons and mattress pads, all of which you need to see for yourself. Overall, I would say it would be good for anyone ages 10 and up. There are definitely enough scares for those who scare moderately easily, and even a few surprises for those who don't get scared. It is definitely worth your time and money as the quality of the acting and scenes are above average.

Signage / Visibility / Location


If you follow the directions from their profile on Haunted Wisconsin you'll get there no problem. They are easy to see from a distance as they have a lit up sign and some flashing lights that lead you right to them.

Wait Area / Line Entertainment


We went about a half hour befor closing on a Friday night and there was absolutely no line. I beleieve the weather probably had something to do with that as it was not very nice. It is an outdoor waiting area, so if the weather is iffy dress appropriately.

Actors' Performance


As stated in the above review, the actor's were right on cue. They put a lot of time into their roles and should be very proud of what they have accomplished. They didn't break character, and when the leader of our group would get lost they would direct you the right way, but not by being obvious. This definitely was the strong point of the night. Keep your eyes open for the king and the baby.

Sets Scenes / Props / FX


The scenes were very well done. You could tell here that they have 24 years of experience. They know how to use what they have effectively.  The best example of this would be the ribbon room. They had a few of the standard rooms you have in every haunt but had a few of their own unique rooms as well.

Length


24 minutes, which was a good amount of time for what they have. Definitely enough surprises to keep you interested.

Crowd Control


I believe we were the last ones of the night as some of the actor's were standing outside after we got through, so it's hard to say how they do on the spacing of groups.

Most Memorable Moment


I would probably say the nursery rhyme was very memorable, as it was very creepy and haunting.

Summary

Overall these guys know what they are doing. As I stated before it's not the scariest haunt out there, but I believe for a beginner or even a family this is a great way to spend an evening. it is well worth the time and money. Also  they are wheel chair accessible, which opens more possibilities for people with disabilities as not a lot of haunts have the space to provide that feature. If you are looking for a place to take the kids and see them scared, or just looking for a scare yourself, Neenah's Most Haunted is the place to go in the Fox Cities.
