Terror on Rural Street

Fun Factor: Very High Fear Factor: Very High


Terror On Rural Street is a haunted house that I never miss. I always make sure to get there every year and I always have a great time. This year was no exception!

The haunt is easy to get to and although, ToRS shares a parking lot with two other facilities, it was not impossible to find a spot to park.

My group was greeted by Frankenstein and his bride (played by two very confident stilt walkers.) Both actors appeared to be having a blast and the crowd was enjoying themselves too. We had to wait a few minutes for tickets since there were some folks in front of us, but both ticket takers were friendly AND organized.

Our wait wasn't long and when our tickets were called, we walked across the courtyard into the haunt and were greeted by an older gentleman who made sure we understood the rules and told us a few jokes to ease the growing terror.

Then, we got our cue to head inside. The sound effects and lighting were extremely well done and there were several mazes that were quite disorienting due to the strobe lights, creepy sounds, and monsters that used misdirection and surprise to their advantage.

I screamed and jumped. I batted at fishing line, rubber heads, and body bags that dangled from the ceiling and uncomfortably brushed across my skin and hair.

I was teased by monsters and I bravely laughed it off.

There were a few times when our group got split up, but the exit of the haunt makes it easy to find people again.

We had a nice shock and surprise at the end of the haunt and my whole group reported that they had a ton of fun!


Terror On Rural Street should definitely be on your not-to-miss list. It's one of the best haunts in Wisconsin!
