Review

What else is there to do in Green Bay when the Packers are on the road? Check out the Green Bay Fear. It’s part party/part haunt for a spooky good time. For an extra $10 you can get the VIP treatment and more entertainment, which I cover below in the Wait Area section. Whichever you choose, both take you through the haunted woods to the haunted mansion. The walk through the woods includes scares along the way. The mansion looks impressive on the outside and all the way to the inside. You begin with instructions from a man with his mouth sewn shut, so getting instruction was interesting and fun. You’re given a pair of 3D glasses that bring out colors and markings on the wall and the glasses keep you feeling uneasy. The actors go to great lengths to keep with their characters and make the haunt memorable.

Signage / Visibility / Location


Just minutes off of Hwy 41, easy to navigate to, and find, with plenty of signs and parking.

Wait Area / Line Entertainment


The people at the ticket booth, as well as the clown giving instructions, were entertaining and funny. I got the VIP package which instead of waiting in line you’re sent through a haunted path into the woods. You end up in a large clearing with a warm fire, seating, hot chocolate, a free t-shirt, a movie and a live band. As one visitor put it “this is freakin awesome!”

Actors' Performance


Terrific job and effort put forth by the performers. They perfected creepy movement and many had a perfect skin crawling giggle. Some just knew when to be quiet, stand there and look disturbing. The actors with dialog delivered with conviction.

Sets Scenes / Props / FX


The exterior is awesome, perfectly looking just like what you’d expect a haunted house to look like. The impression continues on the inside, very eerie and well decorated. Props, decoration and the actor’s costumes all fit the effect of the room and the theme they were creating

Length


Fairly long and worth the money. One point during the haunt I thought we were done since we were outside through a haunted courtyard. An actor creepily said, “oh you’re not leaving…you’re going baack insiiiiiide.” I didn’t believe her until we we’re back inside for more.

Crowd Control


There wasn’t much of a crowd when we arrived, but there were quite a few in the VIP area enjoying the band. There was plenty of staff to move things along. Though at times it was confusing on which path to take. We had to ask for direction a couple of times.

Most Memorable Moment


My personal favorite part was a hallway with chains hanging from the ceiling. Some of the chains had glowing hockey masks attached to them. The 3-D effect made the masks jump out at you and some of the masks weren’t attached to chains…

Summary

Overall it was a fun experience. Probably a good haunt for a big group of friends who are up for a variety of entertainment with the haunt. The haunt itself was well done. Settings and actors were excellent. The startling frights seemed limited. I usually can gage how scary a haunt is by how much my wife screams, jumps and uses me as a shield. She rarely did walking through this haunt. The group we walked with seemed to laugh more, or comment how cool it was, instead of scream. I also took off the 3-D glasses half way through the haunt. The effect they provided wasn’t worth the detail I was missing and they kept falling off anyway. We all enjoyed the entertainment.
