For many years, the Morgue has been one of my favorite local haunts. From the walk in the woods, to the wait area, to the Morgue itself... I lov it all! It's been two years since I've attended, so I was very excited to visit once again.
I have to be honest and say that the woods let me down this year. There were only two 'monsters' in the woods, and both were texting on their phones. ZZZZZzzzz. The woods really help set the mood for the rest of the night, so this was a let-down. To be fair, I know that the Morgue relies on volunteers, and it's a different group every night. I also noticed there were black lights in several places in the woods. To me personally, this took away from the scary walk in the dark.
When you go to the Morgue, be prepared to wait a good hour or two. This haunt has always had great 'word of mouth' press going for it, and there are always big crowds there. The wait area is done EXTREMELY well; it's the best outside wait area in Wisconsin! A huge bonfire that they always keep roaring big, a very good concession stand, videos or a movie playing on a big screen, and lots of space to move around. They normally will have some actors lurking around getting a few screams before the fun really starts.
Since I've been in it last, they have changed up the Morgue quite a bit. But one thing that hasn't changed is the Morgue witch. She's always there at the entrance, every year, greeting you with her pale face and dead eyes. She's basically the mascot from hell! When she meets you at the door, it's like coming home!
I won't give away any of the fun inside the Morgue, but it will not disappoint. Another solid year from the underdogs that always have been the best kept secret in the area. Do yourself a favor and check it out. A lot of fun at a great price!
Three levels of terror, that's how I sum up the Morgue. Always a solid haunt! It's also great to see they have a very nice website now! If you're in the Green Bay area, make sure you hit this one!!!
