Review

Northeastern Wisconsin has a new "diamond in the rough". This is my first time at the "Trail of Terror" and I was not disappointed. It is difficult to find a good haunt so far North! It is only a 25 minute drive north of Green Bay and is definitely worth the travel. There is no use of animatronics and some very unique scares. Most of the props are "home made". I've been to a lot of haunts and tend to see similar scenes for every one, but at the "Trail of Terror" there is nothing familiar. You know you have stumbled upon a "good haunt" when the sign clearly states that the actors WILL touch you! Expect a lot of contact with ghouls and be prepared to get lost. They use real live (and dead) creatures ... sometimes the blood you see is REAL. Think smart when you go and consider the weather (it is an outdoor haunt). It can be muddy so wearing heels or "nice shoes" is just stupid! If you are a big PETA fan or are easily offended then stay home ... this haunt is for those who WANT to be scared.

Signage / Visibility / Location


Heading North on 41 there is a sign, but it was not lit up. Be careful if you are not paying attention you will miss the turn on to County rd J. It is two miles ahead on your left ... you have entered northern WI.

Wait Area / Line Entertainment


There are no concessions. There are "cow tags" with numbers to designate your group and every group gets a "tour guide". While waiting for your turn enjoy a warm bonfire and ghouls walking around with some of your worst nightmares.

Actors' Performance


The actors are mostly volunteers, there was a highschool group when we went. The acting and special effects are great, they really make it theatrical.

Sets Scenes / Props / FX


All of the scenes were unique. This is NOT a high budget haunt, but the use of materials is well done.

Length


This Trail lasted 27 minutes.

Crowd Control


We never ran into another group. The only disappointing factor was being grouped with another "group". Fortunately they were a great crowd to be with, but if we had been grouped with one of those annoying non stop talking groups it could ruin the whole experience.

Most Memorable Moment


I found myself alone and trapped and even forced to the ground.

Summary

Not a high budget haunt, but VERY entertaing! I give it a 4+ for fear and a 4 for fun! Those of us in the North, this is a haunt that should NOT be missed!
