Burial Chamber has always been at the top of my list of haunts--and for another year they didn't disappoint! Burial chamber is a well run, well seasoned haunt with numerous live actors in incredibly detailed costumes and makeup, and cinema quality sets throughout their three haunts.
Burial Chamber has three different attractions--an outdoor haunted forest filled with interesting creatures, and two indoor haunts that will have you guessing what is around every corner. It is obvious that this haunt pays close attention to detail--as each one of the three haunts is well detailed both in its sets, its costumed live actors, as well as the layout of live and animated scares.
Burial Chamber is easy to find, located in Neenah, and has multiple ticket options. Guests are able to attend each of the haunts separately or purchase a ticket for all three. There's also an option to upgrade to the quick pass and skip all the lines, and with Burial Chamber being a popular haunt, the upgrade is well worth it!
Signage / Visibility / Location
Burial Chamber is very easy to find. They have ample, well-lit parking and staff directing traffic. The ticket lines are well organized and easy to navigate.
Wait Area / Line Entertainment
All waiting lines are outside--so plan accordingly. There were multiple monsters lurking through the lines and grounds, and we loved how interactive each one was! While you wait, you will also find multiple gift shops and concession stands throughout the grounds. Burial Chamber is a popular haunt, so expect to wait--the upgrade to the quick pass is well worth it!
Each and every actor was completely committed to their role--and there we plenty of live actors to go around! With three haunts, I'm always nervous that actors would be sparse--but not at Burial Chamber! There were growling, snarling, chainsaw-wielding creatures around every corner. Be aware--monsters are lurking everywhere--even above your head!
Sets Scenes / Props / FX
I've always admired Burial Chamber's high quality sets and animatronics, and this year, once again, did not disappoint.
From what we could see, the outdoor portion of the haunt ('Phobia') had lots of amazingly constructed sets--we wish there would have been just a tad more lighting so we could have admired them more! Our group loved navigating through the twists and turns of multiple outbuildings and sets.
The second attraction ('Insanity') was the most memorable--from long, dark, winding hallways with 'peek-a-boo" windows and holes peeking through to other rooms in the haunt, and topsy-turvy rooms that make you feel disoriented, you never knew what new effect or creature was coming next. Kudos to the 'Panda' room--we had lots of fun!
Last but definitely not least was 'Adrenaline.' This third attraction definitely keeps the adrenaline pumping and keeps you on your toes with loud sirens and flashing lights and effects to keep your senses heightened. Look out below (and above) as floors change texture and monsters drop from overhead! Our most memorable scare came from monster dropping from the most unexpected place!
From ticket line to end we spent approximately an hour at the haunt. We upgraded to the 'quick pass' as lines were long. We were able to skip the long ticket line, and the long lines at each of the three attractions. The haunts themselves were an excellent length and well worth the price!
Crowds were well managed and well organized. It's obvious that this is a haunt used to large crowds--each of the waiting lines was well lit and the signage was clear. We were easily able to find which line to jump into next. Once inside the haunt, we didn't have to worry about catching up to the group ahead of us or having a group catch up to us, as the haunt entrances were well timed.
Most Memorable Moment
Our most memorable moments came from the last of the three haunts, Adrenaline. Special shout out to the actors daring enough to climb overhead and give us a great jump scare! We also loved the animatronics and special FX in this haunt--watch out!
Once again--kudos to Burial Chamber for a haunt well done. This haunt is always at the top of my list, and it was a joy to share this haunt with four friends who have never attended. Everyone in our group had fun and was able to experience more than a few scares! From plenty of live actors to amazing FX, this is a haunt you will want to visit this season....and every season after.
