Review

There is something new in Brown County and it has me just as excited as a Green Bay Packers win! Revenge, a haunted attraction located not far from Green Bay, took the haunt experience all the way to the end zone. If you are not familiar with the area, you are going to need a GPS to locate this attraction. This is a more rural part of Brown County filled with deer, so be careful when driving. Revenge is not as highly “advertised” as some of the other Brown County haunts so it makes it one of the “better kept secrets”.

The setting is an amazing 1903 barn that is used for events (weddings, corporate parties) when the ghouls are away. When you arrive there are some treats for purchase, a great photo opportunity (see photos) and the wait is inside so you do not have to worry about bad weather. No ghouls roaming the lines, but there are four large screen TV’s playing some great horror flick videos while you wait. Our wait was a bit longer than expected, but we quickly realized that it was because they only send your group (large or small) in at a time and make sure to time it so that all actors are ready to draw the next victim’s blood.

We walked in, I was relaxed … not my first time at the haunted rodeo. It took about 30 seconds in and I could feel my heart starting to race. When they say their haunt is “like being in a horror movie”, they do not mean poorly dressed actors with some little red balloons. If you have not seen some of the newer horror movies (The Domestics), you may not know what the scenes are mimicking, but I promise you will leave feeling as if you escaped a real life horror movie. I was scared … as hard as that is to admit, Revenge truly “scared” me and those in my group. If you are like me and say you do not “scare” easily, this haunt is for you. This haunt is not recommended for those looking for just “fun”, it is intense! After I attended, I spoke with a few others who have been to Revenge and they agreed. Actors inside were plenty, brilliant and we had no down time to catch our breath. Every inch of this space was used and it took a surprising 20 minutes at a very fast paced to escape. Revenge has definitely earned its spot as a favorite in my book!

Signage / Visibility / Location


Not easily located, you can punch in the address and Google Maps will help. In a very remote location.

Wait Area / Line Entertainment


There are treats for purchase and tickets are only $15. No online purchase option, did not check on the option to pay with card. Wait is inside, so no worries about rain. However, I can see the line potentially leading outside as this attraction becomes more popular. There are treats available for purchase and 4 large screens playing horror flick scenes while you wait. No ghouls wandering the lines while we were waiting, but not really a good area for ghouls to wander.

Actors' Performance


By far the best part of this attraction is the stellar performance of the actors. They were numerous and stayed in character the entire time, performance was far above and beyond my expectations.

Sets Scenes / Props / FX


Scenes felt genuine and props and effects were appropriately placed. We were lost and stuck a few times with no "obvious" escapes, I would love to go back and see if I can remember how to escape. The attraction intentionally makes you feel trapped. Props were unique and very unexpected, there were a few "shocking" moments with a possible visit from Annabelle herself? I would compare it to a magic trick, the goal is to keep you guessing and if you can not figure it out (which we could not) they have done it right.

Length


I expected this to be brief, the barn is 1600 sq ft, but it was much longer than expected. It took us just over 20 minutes to escape.

Crowd Control


The wait time is longer, but I would rather wait longer than be crowded with other groups. They send you in with just your group and clearly wait until all other groups have advanced so there is no running into others and no spoilers.

Most Memorable Moment


There were several in this haunted attraction, but the most memorable personally is walking carefully only to have the lights flash back on and someone is literally right in your face!! Where did they come from?
