This haunted was disappointing. Marketed as a professional haunt and charging a professional price, this site fell short on so many levels. First, the venue is prefect. This site had some really cool set-ups, (the fair and basement areas) but even with those sets, there was missed opportunities to really take it to the next level. I'm not sure if it was the lack of actors or what, but walking thru these areas was like.... well, meh! There could have been a creepy organ grinder playing in the background, some of the games could have been clever with some morbid twist. The upstairs areas has a few good things, but not rememberable. I'm not sure what's scary about an old mattress on the floor. Our group did go Halloween weekend and the crew may have been burnt out at this point of the season. We had issues buying tickets online and when we arrived, we were put in the regular line and not the fast-pass line. Plenty of room for improvement.
I'm glad that there is a haunt close to Madison but our group won't be attending next year. Mostly because we have other haunts to check-out. But we do plan on checking Scaryland out in '17 and hope that this new haunt grows and takes advantage of a perfect location. Charging Dungeon of Doom prices... the Scaryland team should really check that haunt out and pull some ideas from them.
