Haunted Cornfield at Meadowbrook!!! Here I thought a fire destroyed this place in 2015 and it was never to return... Well, no, turns out they never missed a a season... See what rumors can do! Meadowbrook has always been one of my favorite attractions during the hunting season and I was psyched to go back, to say the least. Not much has changed since my last trip here in 2014. Once you buy your tickets you are told to wait by a bonfire until your number is called. In years past this has been a great feature, but apparently mid to late October nights in Wisconsin is now 68ยบ season! The ambiance was still nice. Once our numbers were called we were herded into a line, like cattle to slaughter, ironically with a view of cattle that were freer than we were! Waiting in line was entertaining, not because of roaming ghouls and goblins, as there weren't any, but because of the farm animals were hanging out! We soon entered the corn, and our adventure began!

Now I mentioned earlier that Meadowbrook has always been one of my favorites, though that still remains the same, I do think my three year hiatus has given me time to reflect on this place and allowed me to come to some conclusions that maybe I had missed in years past. Meadowbrook continues to awe me with their presumable fortune of animatronics and lighting. Every time I go through that trail I walk away thinking 'That must have been expensive, and their electrical bill must be staggering!', but the lack of updating seems to be catching up to them, Those animatronic props were once my favorite part of the haunt, now just seem kind of boring. There was an over use of strobe lights, which don't get me wrong, can be a great effects, but we found ourselves saying, "Oh great, here comes more strobes." several times through it.

My favorite part of the haunt was the live actors, which there were WAY TOO FEW OF!!! To me, nothing is creepier than being shocked by actual voices in a corn field. If I were Meadowbrook, I would scale back on the animated props and get a significant amout of actors out there. While walking through the trail you will encounter several areas you have to enter, these are some of the more entertaining parts of the haunt. From pirates to backwoods creeps, these sections are what makes Meadowbrook shine! In all though, Meadowbrook is dark, disorientating, and lenghthy! It still remains one of my favorite haunts in the area!

Signage / Visibility / Location

Meadowbrook is down a very dark road, but you'll see it no problem thanks to a marquee and lights!

Wait Area / Line Entertainment

The waiting area is great, there is a nice bonfire to warm you up. The line once you are called is less entertaining, except for tehe farm animals who carry on as usual!

Actors' Performance

The actors in the corn are top notch, and they are the highlight of this haunt.

Sets Scenes / Props / FX

Again, the animatronics and props are phenomenal, my only beef with them is that it's time to update.


The actual haunt is quite lengthy. You will comfortably be roaming around just short of an hour!

Crowd Control

Meadowbrook has a flawless system in place to get everyone from waiting area to line. They know what they're doing.

Most Memorable Moment

I'll keep saying it, the actors all day! They do what they do, and do it better than most haunts!


Haunted Cornfield at Meadowbrook Pumpkin Farm is, has been, and assumably will always be one of my favorite haunts. It's a high budget, scary trip that won't disappoint! I can't wait to see what changes they make in the future!
