Burial Chamber Haunted House Complex

Fun Factor: Very High Fear Factor: Very High


Burial Chamber is one of Wisconsin’s premier haunted complexes, with three separate haunts, including an outdoor trail. The sister to the more southern Abandoned, BC has a lot to brag about with these haunts – the acting is superb and the sets are straight out of a nightmare. Everything about Burial Chamber adds up to the perfect Halloween night.

Our group chose to go on a Sunday, which is a great option if you’re attending a haunt later in the season (closer to Halloween). We also had fast passes, so our wait in lines was virtually non-existent, although BC is well-equipped to entertain those in line with food trucks, videos footage and monsters walking around!

Our favorite haunt of the night, Adrenaline lives up to its name – my heart was pumping and I was constantly on edge as we crept through this haunt. We experienced some amazingly timed jump scares and even some sounds that were just terrifying – strange clicks, screeches, and a jackhammer that echoed throughout the whole haunt. With a focus on the army/war, BC had a completely new haunt for the season, utilizing some great props and really creepy imagery to terrify. One crawling girl had me scrambling out the door!

This outdoor haunt provides a bit of levity after the terror of Adrenaline, with some of the actors making more jokes and being scary/funny as you make your way through. There were a few really scary moments, most notably when one actor crawled very unusually (can you tell I have a specific fear?), but in general, I did feel as though this haunt hadn’t changed too much from last year. However, it’s got some great jump scares, some really cool, tight environments where you can just see the outside, which leads to a lot of anticipation. Also, the woods and trail themselves are fantastically creepy!

Disorienting and startling, insanity uses some larger props to create their environment – we encountered several inflatables, huge animatronics we had to scurry past, and several arms that reached out for us in the dark. I was particularly disturbed by a white face coming out from a painting, and all of us were thrown off when we entered into the field of laser mist.

Signage / Visibility / Location

Very easy to find; with a huge sign and parking area.

Wait Area / Line Entertainment

Excellent – Burial Chamber has several food trucks, a store, some shops, the burial simulator, videos playing, and of course, some awesome actors walking around.

Actors' Performance

Awesome, particularly in Adrenaline – those actors knew exactly when to jump out and when to hold back, and didn’t need a lot of words to be scary!

Sets Scenes / Props / FX

Absolutely amazing, so detailed and intricate, down to the smells and dripping water. You literally will not believe your eyes. Each scene looks straight out of a horror movie, and it just goes on and on!


Very long; each haunt took at least 20-30 minutes.

Crowd Control

Great; very clear lines and a clear system for letting guest inside.

Most Memorable Moment

I was scared double with a car horn and scream in one moment of Adrenaline – SO impressed with the timing on that one; it REALLY got me!


For the Halloween season, Burial Chamber is an absolute MUST visit! With three amazing haunts and a team of fantastic monsters, Burial Chamber will leave lasting images in your brain of their terrifying scenes. This haunt is detailed, long, and most importantly, chock full of SCARY moments!
