Review

Located at the National Railroad Museum in Green Bay, Terror on The Fox Haunted Attraction continues to firmly make its mark on the Wisconsin haunt scene. I returned for my 11th year in a row and walked away continuing to be impressed by the cinematic quality displayed. Your journey begins when you see the single light, of the impressive double decker passenger train, grow brighter through the fog. Once aboard, the 15 minute ride allows little time for relaxation as the dedicated cast effortlessly creeps throughout making passengers scream.

The first stop is at the newly themed attraction, La Llorona. The atmosphere was primarily outdoors, but cascading chapels, trees and structured props make you feel as if you are indoors. La Llorona and her crew made this 12 minute portion of the attraction come alive and feel like an eternity.

As you make your way to the main house, you will be amazed at the authentic look of the exterior. Blazing horror music, synchronized lighting and fierce dancers provide an experience you would expect from a professional theatrical show. Make it a night by watching while enjoying multiple beverage selections (including beer), food (including Texas Roadhouse) and a blazing fire. There are plenty of screams and photo opportunities with the cast while in line. All of the cast (Pennywise included) did not have to hide in the dark as the high quality and detail of their characters was frightening even with lights on! They were quite vocal, often speaking in unique dialects that gave their characters more depth.

Without giving away too much, once inside the final attraction, authenticity continues with no breaks or dark hallways. You can see well (if you don’t keep your eyes closed like someone in our group) as the scenes and transitions from room to room flow continuously. The level of detail, perfectly timed scares, top notch performance, crowd control and cinematic quality is what brings me back every year! I am already eager to see what next year brings.

Signage / Visibility / Location


Located at the National Railroad Museum in Green Bay. Once near it is easy to find with flashing signs for parking and lights glowing the path.

Wait Area / Line Entertainment


All 3 wait areas had cast roaming about to scare you. Once off the train you can have multiple food and beverage options to enjoy around the blazing campfire. Not just hot dogs and cookies ... REAL FOOD and BEVERAGES. If I were to change one thing about this attraction, it would be a system that allowed individuals to wait around the bonfire and enjoy the snacks (instead of standing in line each time). Something like a number system ... not a deal breaker.

Actors' Performance


All of the cast (Pennywise included) did not have to hide in the dark as the high quality and detail of their characters was frightening even with lights on! They were quite vocal, often speaking in unique dialects that gave their characters more depth. Their lines (when spoken) flowed excellent with the scenes. They remained in character the entire time (including in line).

Sets Scenes / Props / FX


Authentic! Cinematic quality!! I can not describe it any better. It is like being on set of your very own horror movie. Disgusting scenes, gory scenes ... there is such diversity in sets, with excellent transitions. We felt that the lighting effects were great, often times the lighting accentuated the details of the scenes beautifully and other times it was more dramatic, like the lasers that hid what could be at your feet.

Length


If I combined solely the time we were inside attractions (Train, La Llorona, and the main house) it was about 45 - 50 minutes in length!!

Crowd Control


You go in with who you came with, and it stays that way throughout all attractions!

Most Memorable Moment


Again, without giving away too much: The butcher, the Dr., the "bathroom" and of course the CHAINSAW.

Summary

Located at the National Railroad Museum in Green Bay, Terror on The Fox Haunted Attraction continues to firmly make its mark on the Wisconsin haunt scene. I returned for my 11th year in a row and walked away continuing to be impressed by the cinematic quality displayed. The level of detail, perfectly timed scares, top notch performance, crowd control and cinematic quality is what brings me back every year! I am already eager to see what next year brings.
