Review

For the first time in years, I made the trip up to Green Bay Fear located in (of course) Green Bay, WI. What I hadn't recalled was how large the event is. I made  the trek expecting to find the typical Haunted House setup of a ticket booth, queue line and haunted house. This wasn't at all what I found at Green Bay Fear; theres a stage for live music, hot cocoa, lots of food/drink options, zombie paintball, a fire pit, haunted woods and of course the main haunt.


Upon arriving to the haunt, I was immediately  drawn to the various character actors walking around. If you've read any of my other reviews, you'll recall that I'm big on this since it helps build up a visitors momentum/anxiety before a haunt. The entire haunt reminds me of a circus/carnival from hell including the freaky clowns walking around.  Of course, he was just one of the many other various ghouls parading around the area.


I was impressed with all the black light enhanced neon colors. In my opinion, this really helped to bring the event alive and make sections (that would otherwise go unnoticed) stand out. This was also carried out through many elements within the haunt which helped keep things themed similarly.


My first stop was at zombie paintball since that seemed to have the shortest line. I love paintballing and therefore used up my 10 shots pretty fast.


My second stop was the haunted woods. It was really well done and I had a lot of fun heading through it. Be prepared for actors to jump out of nowhere and scare you. There were a bunch of them too!  All in all, it took about 9 or 10 minutes.


Finally I headed over to the main haunt where I began my wait to enter. Once I finally got in, I was impressed with how intense the haunt was. There's constantly something going on. The actors were spot on in their performance and knew just who to target in my group to get the best reaction. Each room we entered was well made and unique. All in all, the haunt itself lasted about 30 minutes.


Above all, Green Bay Fear was a lot of fun. Although I'm from Milwaukee, the drive up to Green Bay was well worth it - especially since this isn't just a single haunted house event. You could spend a lot of time just wandering around BEFORE even heading into the main haunt. Also feel free to visit on an empty stomach, there was plenty of food and drink available for purchase (and it seemed reasonable).

Summary

If you're a haunted house junkie, you're going to want to visit Green Bay Fear.  It is an all around fun experience that you will not want to miss!

I haven't been to Green Bay Fear in a few years, and in the years I've been away they went from a haunted house to a full blown haunted event!  The house that is the staple of GB Fear is now the centerpiece of a carnival-type atmosphere.  There's so much to see and do, it's really something to check out.  You can just attend the haunted house itself, or you can go all out and go RIP.  If you purchase the RIP admission you get the following:  the Fast Pass, sitting by the RIP section by the fire with hot chocolate, live music, Zombie Paintball, the Odditorium, the walk in the haunted woods, and the house itself.
 
I spent the first few minutes walking around to just take it all in.  I was greeted by a sweet, Southern old lady that had the gift of gab.  After a few minutes, I realized that this Southern Bell was not a 'she' after all.  Just another night at Green Bay Fear!  There are multiple creatures and characters just roaming around the grounds.  A scary looking clown was fun to watch as he patiently waited by the porta pottys.  He wasn't waiting to get in, he was waiting for his victims to walk out.  Probably a good thing that the innocent attendees relieved themselves just seconds before!   
 
One thing that GB Fear has always embraced, almost to a fault, is the use of black lights and day-glo colors.  Zombie Paintball continues the trend, with all sorts of glow in the dark targets for you to shoot at.  I'm guessing there should have been a zombie to shoot at... hence the name.  But when I was there, it was only stationary targets. You only get ten shots, so make them count!  This took about 5 minutes to complete.  The Odditorium is like a very old side-show museum that lets you look at multiple freaks of nature such as flesh eating beetles, a mummified cat, etc...  We were there for about 10 minutes.
 
The RIP area is a nice place to sit, drink some hot chocolate, and listen to the live band.  There was even a zombie girl who twirled around balls of fire on chains.  It was very entertaining to watch!  How long you're in the RIP area is up to you. There's a concessions stand, a gift shop, and even a shop that makes potions!  The walk in the woods had us jumping left and right.  It took about 10 minutes to get through the woods, and I didn't want it to end!          
 
Being we had the Fast Pass, I didn't expect to wait in line for the house.  Truth be told, we waited about 45 minutes.  I think that's the first time I ever had to wait that long with a quick pass.  Those without the Fast Pass were waiting between two and three hours!  It was THAT busy.  By the time we made it to the entrance, they were putting multiple groups through together to cut down on the long wait in line.  The first thing I noticed once in the house is their continued use of black lights and glow paint.  I loved how their lighting flickered and different things would appear depending on what type of lighting was on at the time.  Being there was a lot of people in our group, there were only one or two times that I jumped.  The sets are very detail orientated, and each one was different from the next.  I thought at one point we were done with the haunt, as we were led outside.  But after following the winding trail, we were led back into the house.  All in all, it took about 20 minutes to make it through the house.  By the time we left, several hours had flown by!

Signage / Visibility / Location


It's easy to find GB Fear, and it's at a great location off the highway.  The parking lot attendees seemed like they had their hands full this night, and didn't bother to warn us that the old entrance to the woods is no longer in use.  You now enter through the back side of the building.  It was a little confusing to find where to get to the entrance...

Wait Area / Line Entertainment


GB Fear actors were walking around interacting and scaring as expected.  There's a lot of ground to cover, so kudos to these actors on their feet all night. 

Actors' Performance


As mentioned above, it was an extremely busy night for them...  and the wait to get in the main haunt was rather long.

Sets Scenes / Props / FX


The actors all did a great job.  There were multiple small children acting, and they did an excellent job as well! 

Crowd Control


For the most part, there weren't any issues with crowd control until it came to the haunt itself.  It's a good thing when you have that many people attending your haunt.  Hopefully in the coming weeks they are able to keep the lines moving at a steady pace.

Most Memorable Moment


Within a minute of walking onto the Fear grounds, a spider-looking monster came walking up to me on 4 legs.  This thing was HUGE!  I don't think I've ever seen a character like that before at a haunt!!!

Summary

Hands down, the best haunt in the Green Bay area.  I was pleasantly surprised with all the different things they have recently added to it.  If you haven't gone yet this year, make sure you do yourself a favor and face your Fear!

Review

I have always said in the past, that Green Bay Fear was the “black horse” of all haunted attractions with the potential to be one of the best.  This year, Green Bay Fear is no longer the “black horse”.  Green Bay Fear is the best haunted attraction in Green Bay and one of the best in the entire state of Wisconsin. If you are an avid haunted house attendee or if you are searching for the best haunted attraction in the Green Bay area, you must see what is in store for you at Green Bay Fear.  This is not your typical haunted attraction where you must stand in a boring line for hours only to be disappointed at how brief the actual entertainment portion is.  Green Bay Fear is similar to a haunted “carnival” with the added bonus of an amazing main attraction. 

The location of Green Bay Fear is rather easy.  It is right off of Highway 41, but beware of road construction if you are not from the area.  Parking was fairly easy and well guided, but I did attend early in the evening.  If you have attended Green Bay Fear in the past, expect major changes this year.  Ticket prices are very reasonable at $15, but I always say if you can afford it … go for the added RIP bonus! 

When you enter the “Fear grounds” your senses will be overwhelmed by the amount of things to do.  The feeling I experienced when I first walked in, was that same feeling of excitement and anxiety I would get when I was younger and first arrived at a theme park.  You just don’t know where to start, it is all so exciting and there is so much to see and do.  There is a live band EVERY NIGHT and even if you do not have an RIP pass you can still enjoy the music and see the stage! 

We first made our way to the Zombie paintball.  I have never had the opportunity to shoot paintball before, and I LOVE the idea of being able to waste a real “zombie”.  The set up was great and the zombie was clever, but never the less I nailed him!  After that, we headed straight for some hot cocoa, a cozy bonfire and the live music.  The band was phenomenal and we could have sat there all night listening to them.  There are so many different food and beverage options, I wish I hadn’t eaten supper before I came.  We then moved on to the head toss.  I’m not bragging, but I managed to get each head in (unlike my guest) and won a very cool prize!  We had already spent an hour at Green Bay Fear and hadn’t even began to explore all there is to offer. 

We decided to head for the haunted woods.  You would never know you were in the city because when you are walking through the woods, your senses are so heightened that you must be cautious of all your immediate surroundings.  The ghouls are everywhere and you never have a moment to catch your breath before the next one is chasing you.  We managed to come upon “Psycho” the psychic and opted for a real tarot card reading.  It is an additional charge so make sure to bring cash.  It is a great opportunity to catch your breath and have your fortune read.  I am very skeptical when it comes to psychics, but I must admit this one was so good it was scary!  We were soon out and back into the woods for what seemed an eternity.  Total time through the wood minus the reading was 23 minutes!

Finally, we made our way to the MAIN event.  There are no long, dark hallways used as fillers to increase the length of the haunt.  You literally go from one scene to the next without a moments rest.  The Haunted House is so full of ghouls, creatures and monsters that you must remain attentive at all times.  If you cannot handle being frightened, I recommend burying your head in your friend’s sweatshirt and just pray it will end.  The actors don’t just scream, they contort and move in ways that are clearly not human.   The main attraction was significant in length and took an amazing 28 minutes to complete.  

Summary

In summary, if you want to experience a haunted attraction that gives you more entertainment than no other attraction, go to Green Bay Fear and be prepared to make an evening out of it!
