Location: Easy to find in Oconomowoc.
Parking:Because it is an old high school, there is plenty of parking.
Waiting area: They are using the old gym as the waiting area. Plenty of space and indoors so need to worry about the weather. They do have refreshments for sale, and a big screen showing horror movies. Because it was late, we did not have to wait at all.
Haunt: They play into the fact that this was a old school and the whole haunt is based on the fact that high school is hell. The haunt took over 30 minutes to get through. Each room is 1 hour of your school day. Some really great effects using sensors so they are always timed right. The rooms are set up well and really use the space they have. You will walk up and down stairs and ramps. Liked the fact that each room had a very different feel and that they were trying to effect your senses in different ways. Downside is that the haunt uses a lot of teenagers to staff the haunt. We saw many actors take off their mask and drop out of character. We were also run over by some actors trying to get back to their mark as we entered the room. They could have used some music in some areas to help the feel of the room. The best room of the whole house is the glee club. Loved that everyone in that room really got into it.
Fun house that for $15 was worth it to me. Great house for people who hate clowns as there are none! If you are looking for a house in the metro-Milwaukee area, I would recommend.
