Review

Green Bay Fear is the haunt that everyone is talking about this year!  The Beja Shriners have done a great job marketing the haunted house from the very creepy commercials ran late at night on TV to the very cool T-shirts I see past victims wearing out and about.  The commercials were so professionally done that the anticipation of attending Fear was almost as great as the scares once you arrive.  When you arrive at the haunted house you have the option to purchase a general admission ticket for $15 or a RIP/VIP ticket for $25.  The house itself is great and well worth the $15, but for $10 more you can't afford NOT to go RIP.  You get to skip the lines, socialize, eat smores, have unlimited hot cocoa, sit around a cozy bonfire and listen to an AWESOME live band on a creepy stage.  There were people of all ages hanging out in the VIP area.  The outside of the haunt with its large structure and broken wooden fence help to create a frightening atmosphere.  As you enter the haunt, a creepy actor helps instruct you to put on the 3d glasses that are not NEEDED, but definitely compliment the haunt perfectly. 
Green Bay Fear is a MASTER in 3d effect.  Most haunts rely on the heavy luminescent colors to create scares, but Green Bay Fear using the 3d effect to enhance the already very scary sets and props.  The detail in each room is very realistic and the actors are very well placed, I'm not even certain if some of the noise coming from the actors was human.  It has been a LONG time since a haunted attraction has made me scream, but Green Bay Fear accomplished this goal not once, but TWICE. 

Signage / Visibility / Location


Fear is located right off of Hwy 41 and Shawano Ave.  (on the corner of Taylor on Bond St in Green Bay).  There are signs guiding you to the entrance as you get close, but not until you get closer.

Wait Area / Line Entertainment


There are two different options for the wait area ... RIP (VIP) or general.  In the VIP area you can experience a HUGE stage with a live band playing ghoulish tunes, unlimited hot cocoa, bonfire, smores and much much more.  For only $10 more this is the BEST VIP in the Midwest!!  My only concern with the VIP is that eventually EVERYONE may want to go VIP style and the wait for VIP may become long.  This was not the problem at ALL for us when we attended, but I can foresee it possibly happening in the future. 
I walked over the general admission area and I believe I saw they had a PSYCHIC doing readings in the wait area along with other entertainment.  The wait is outside so please be conscious of the weather! 
As you begin to the haunted house there is a very awesome haunted trail that is dimly lit with torches.  The trail lasted about 12 minutes and the ghouls are very well placed for maximum scare. 

Actors' Performance


The actors did a phenomenal job.  They climbed up walls and dragged their bodies on the ground.  There was never a moment any actor was out of character, they had great follow through and managed crowd control perfectly.  The costumes and makeup were above and beyond and helped complete the entire experience.  I also loved that the actors didn't only go after one person in the group, they had no favorites ... everyone got scared!

Sets Scenes / Props / FX


From start to finish there is not a single area that hasn't been decorated in great detail.  The fluidity from room to room was perfect and the 3d effect is definitely their forte.  Most haunts that do a 3d effect focus on just the fluorescent colors, but FEAR combines detailed sets with just the right amount of luminescence to help compliment the overall effect.  

Length


The walk on the trail leading up to the house/vip area lasted about 12 minutes.  The house lasted around 25 minutes (perhaps longer), at one point you are led outside and then redirected back into the haunt for MORE scares!

Crowd Control


Crowd control was great, the actors entertained you while they made sure you never ran into another group. 

Summary

In conclusion all I have to say is that Green Bay Fear is a must see this year and if you like being entertained and scared then you can not afford to miss Fear this year!

What else is there to do in Green Bay when the Packers are on the road? Check out the Green Bay Fear. It’s part party/part haunt for a spooky good time. For an extra $10 you can get the VIP treatment and more entertainment, which I cover below in the Wait Area section. Whichever you choose, both take you through the haunted woods to the haunted mansion. The walk through the woods includes scares along the way. The mansion looks impressive on the outside and all the way to the inside. You begin with instructions from a man with his mouth sewn shut, so getting instruction was interesting and fun. You’re given a pair of 3D glasses that bring out colors and markings on the wall and the glasses keep you feeling uneasy. The actors go to great lengths to keep with their characters and make the haunt memorable.

Signage / Visibility / Location


Just minutes off of Hwy 41, easy to navigate to, and find, with plenty of signs and parking.

Wait Area / Line Entertainment


The people at the ticket booth, as well as the clown giving instructions, were entertaining and funny. I got the VIP package which instead of waiting in line you’re sent through a haunted path into the woods. You end up in a large clearing with a warm fire, seating, hot chocolate, a free t-shirt, a movie and a live band. As one visitor put it “this is freakin awesome!”

Actors' Performance


Terrific job and effort put forth by the performers. They perfected creepy movement and many had a perfect skin crawling giggle. Some just knew when to be quiet, stand there and look disturbing. The actors with dialog delivered with conviction.

Sets Scenes / Props / FX


The exterior is awesome, perfectly looking just like what you’d expect a haunted house to look like. The impression continues on the inside, very eerie and well decorated. Props, decoration and the actor’s costumes all fit the effect of the room and the theme they were creating

Length


Fairly long and worth the money. One point during the haunt I thought we were done since we were outside through a haunted courtyard. An actor creepily said, “oh you’re not leaving…you’re going baack insiiiiiide.” I didn’t believe her until we we’re back inside for more.

Crowd Control


There wasn’t much of a crowd when we arrived, but there were quite a few in the VIP area enjoying the band. There was plenty of staff to move things along. Though at times it was confusing on which path to take. We had to ask for direction a couple of times.

Most Memorable Moment


My personal favorite part was a hallway with chains hanging from the ceiling. Some of the chains had glowing hockey masks attached to them. The 3-D effect made the masks jump out at you and some of the masks weren’t attached to chains…

Summary

Overall it was a fun experience. Probably a good haunt for a big group of friends who are up for a variety of entertainment with the haunt. The haunt itself was well done. Settings and actors were excellent. The startling frights seemed limited. I usually can gage how scary a haunt is by how much my wife screams, jumps and uses me as a shield. She rarely did walking through this haunt. The group we walked with seemed to laugh more, or comment how cool it was, instead of scream. I also took off the 3-D glasses half way through the haunt. The effect they provided wasn’t worth the detail I was missing and they kept falling off anyway. We all enjoyed the entertainment.

Review

This haunt was exactly all that I expected & more!  I attended with my 13-yr old & her friend on Friday the 7th.  It was very easy to find using the map on my cell phone.  There was plenty of parking & the lady shriners not only pointed you in the right direction, but also wished you luck & hoped you made it out alive!  You can purchase the general admission for $15 or the RIP admission for $25.  I highly recommend the RIP because you get a few nice perks, including getting bumped ahead of the general admission line, a cool Green Bay Fear t-shirt & before entering, you can enjoy a local band & sip hot cocoa.  After being admitted into the woods by a big, ugly clown, you will meet plenty of evil creatures lurking about. They will continually harass you (in a good, fun way) until you reach the point where it splits into the RIP & general admission lines.  Upon entering the RIP area, where your wrist band gets checked again, you are given your tshirt, $5 off coupon to Halloween Express & a cup of hot cocoa.  We sat by one of the fires & listened to the rock music for about a half hour before heading on the path to the house.  Groups of people are lead up the stairs to the porch to wait for the "butler" to usher you inside.  By the way, his mouth is sewn shut but he still tries talking to you.  This is a 3D haunt, so you are then given your 3D glasses which you must wear throughout the entire walk.  There are a lot of twists & turns & plenty of good scares.  When you think you have reached the exit, it just leads you through an iron maze outside & back into the house through another door.  

Signage / Visibility / Location


A wonderfully secluded forest location that is very easy to find.  There are also a couple of signs pointing you to the parking lot.

Wait Area / Line Entertainment


The big ugly clown who admits you also walks around terrorizing the crowd.

Actors' Performance


Excellent performances from these mostly high school students.  I was very impressed with how well they stayed true to the haunt & their characters.

Sets Scenes / Props / FX


This is a true haunted house & the sets, scenes & props were very authentic looking.  

Length


The walk through of the house itself takes about 25-30 minutes, but if you purchase a RIP admission, the length can vary.  We were there about an hour total. 

Crowd Control


There wasn't too many people there when we first purchased our tickets, but I heard there was a group of about 80 coming through so I was glad we got through before them!  In the 2 lines, there were roped off paths to wait behind.  I also did see some people with "Security" written on their shirts so that I found reassuring as the gals marking our bands before entering the house itself were a little older & don't think they could have handled a drunk or disorderly person.

Most Memorable Moment


This had to be when we were being "harassed" in the woods. I told the demon that was up in my face that he needed a tic=tac for his bad breath to which he replied, "I've been in these woods for over 400 years, what did you expect."  :-)

Summary

I was very impressed with this haunt & would recommend it to all.  I would also highly recommend purchasing the RIP tickets for the extra perks.  Just sitting & listening to the band was worth the extra $10.  The Green Bay Fear & the Beja Shriners put on a great show!

Review

This was my first year attending Green Bay Fear and it is a haunt that I will definitely be returning to. They have combined a way to incorporate all the things that leave you nightmares. As you enter, you are lead down a path in the woods. You never know whats lurking in these woods. After the woods you are lead to a very detailed haunted house set into the woods. As you enter, you can just feel that there is something not right with this house. From the beginning, you feel as though there is a chance that you will not make it out alive. As you tour the house, you are lead into room upon room that is filled with things you can't even imagine.

Signage / Visibility / Location


The location of this haunt is very easy to find. They have signs out front and people standing by the drive directing you to the parking area.

Wait Area / Line Entertainment


Being the beginning of the haunt season there wasn't much of a wait but they do have a very creepy clown waiting for you. If you opt for the RIP admission they have a live band for your entertainment as well as hot chocolate as you wait to enter.

Actors' Performance


I felt as though the actors did an outstanding job. They stayed in character the entire time and truly made you feel as though they lived in this house.

Sets Scenes / Props / FX


The scenes in this house were very unique. They actually made it look like a house of your nightmares.

Length


It took about 30 minutes to complete the entire haunt.

Summary

Overall, this was one of the better haunts that I have ever been to. I would recommend it to anyone over the age of 14 that is looking for a good scare.
