The Burial Chamber Haunted Complex is a haunt that I attend every year, and for good reason, it's that good! Some might ask if it gets boring... NO! Burial Chamber is outstanding each year, changing with the times to remain fresh for return guests. With three haunts and a simulated casket ride, you get your moneys worth in this haunt!
Burial Chamber doesn't give you three small haunts either, all three are huge, and time consuming! All three haunts are put together with the goal of making the customer satisfied, and spooked! The two indoor haunts are theme based, I won't give anything away, but I will say that both are different, and both are worth the price of admission by themselves. The third haunt, an outdoor haunted forest, is great as well. Something about a dark forest, with ghouls jumping out, and back-woods freaks screaming at you makes me wish this time of year was here forever! All three haunts prey on fear, and the actors are worthy of awards. All of the actors risk their bodies and voices to make this haunt one you will remember! For my money, Burial Chamber is the best haunt in Wisconsin! Two thumbs us, four stars, A+++!
Signage / Visibility / Location
Burial Chamber has plenty of signage, as well as parking attendants ready to show you the way to the haunt
Wait Area / Line Entertainment
Lines for Burial Chamber were long, but this is to be expected, as this is one of the areas hottest haunts. There is no shortage of ghouls and freaks to keep you spooked while in line. Burial Chamber also has giant screens that play various music videos, horror movie clips, and other short videos that keep you in the spirit while you wait in line.
Year after year Burial Chamber continues to impress me. The actors in and outside of the haunts are well trained, seem to genuinely love what they are doing, and go out of their way to make sure you leave satisfied and spooked! My hat goes off to all the actors, as none of them phoned it in. I have a soft spot in my heart for anyone who is willing to crawl around on the ground the whole time they are spooking, and there were a few of them! All the actors seem to have little regard for their voices, as everyone one of them shouted and made noises that made my throat hurt! A+++
Sets Scenes / Props / FX
Burial Chamber does not skimp on their set. The complex is huge, and I remember at times wondering about how much it must cost to put this on. All three haunts are well decorated, and the effects they use are top notch. But it was the little things that get me excited. At times you will think you have been walking in circles, they have a lot of disorientating tricks they pull! In all, Burial Chamber is tops when it comes to sets and scenes.
Give yourself some time, all three haunts were long! Several times I thought to myself, "This has got to be over soon", only to be pleasantly surprised that it wasn't! It is long, but not a drag or boring! Any haunt that doesn't rush you though is a plus, and Burial Chamber seems to be all about getting you your moneys worth!
Lines were under control, staff members as well as actors roamed the premises, I didn't see anyone out of control, so all was well. There was plenty of stuff to see while in line, which helps control a crowd well!
Most Memorable Moment
The most memorable moment for me is a hard thing to pin point. I have always loved this haunt, that's why I go back year after year. There are a lot of sensory things that help the experience, which is always awesome. I always love the darkness of much of the haunts. A spinning tunnel is usually the icing on the cake for me. Personally, the staff takes the crown though. Everyone was so polite, and spooky, and awesome! The lady at the ticket booth was engaging, and seemed like she was really happy to see the customers. Great job to all!
Burial Chamber produces every year. This is a scary haunt, that is put together well, and is acted out flawlessly. Sets and effects are tops! This is the haunt to attend, I highly recommend it!
