Wisconsin Feargrounds

Fun Factor: High Fear Factor: Medium


I went to the Wisconsin Fear Grounds with 5 friends on a Saturday night. We were excited for a scary and good time and we were not disappointed! Everyone was really friendly and went out of their way to help us.  Unfortunately, due to time constraints in our group, we were only able to visit 1 haunted house, Morgan's Manor.  I would recommend going to all 3 to get the full experience.  We got the fast passes, which were amazing. I highly recommend getting them. We basically had no wait time once we got our wrist bands. They gave us an awesome coin to enter the haunt, which we all wanted to keep but couldn't.  Once we entered the haunt, time seemed to fly. We were not disappointed with the sets or the actors. 

Signage / Visibility / Location

It was very easy to find. We used a GPS and it took us right there. We did see a large sign on the road to help us. We were coming from Madison, so every bit of signage helped!

Wait Area / Line Entertainment

Luckily we were able to get fast passes otherwise the wait would have been about 90 minutes. I would recommend getting one. The ticket line was intimidating  but it moved really fast so don't worry.  We didn't really have any line entertainment until we reached the front.

Actors' Performance

The actor's did a good job. The gentleman at  the front of the line stayed in character very well.  I wish there were more actor's but the ones who were there were enjoyable.

Sets Scenes / Props / FX

This was very well decorated haunt. Not too much blood and gore, but lots to look at.  Each room had a theme and it was decorated accordingly.


As I mentioned, we were only able to do 1 of the 3 haunted houses. It took us about 15 minutes to do the whole thing once we were inside. 

Crowd Control

Very good crowd control! There were lines and ropes directing you where to go. There were several ticket windows available to make the line go faster. You are able to purchase advance tickets online if you don't want to wait in the ticket line. We saw lots of people taking advantage of this option.

Most Memorable Moment

For us, there were really two memorable moments.  When you first walk into haunt there are some figures that you assume are animatronics. That is, until they try to chase you!  The second moment is along the same lines. There is a chair. That is all I will say so I don't ruin the surprise!


I would definitely recommend going to the Wisconsin Feargounds. It is worth the wait and the drive.  There is food and drink available if you are hungry.  Everyone is really friendly and helpful to guide you on your way to enjoyment.  Once inside, expect to be frightened!
