Review

Signage / Visibility / Location

Easy to find. Right downtown. There is a huge sign in the front window.

Wait Area / Line Entertainment

Great music! Misfits and other fun Halloween tunes not normally found at a haunted house.

Most Unique

The Mad Hatter is always a favorite and the stories are always fun to hear. The closterphobia thing and the vortex were wild this year. My hat off to Dead by Dawn once again.

Actors' Performance

They were awesome! There were more than one in almost every room and didn't let up even though one of the people in our group was crying.

Summary

We go to this one every year and this year was the BEST!!! The decorating surpassed other years and so did the actors. If you want to experience a well thought out and well put together haunt then definitely go to this one. We plan on going next weekend again and can't wait to see what next year brings. Keep up the good work!!!

Review

Signage / Visibility / Location

Almost drove past it. Directions on the internet were not correct.

Wait Area / Line Entertainment

Wait area was covered which was nice. Otherwise, it was a typical wait. No actors outside.

Most Unique

The slide was the best part, although it was a deathtrap waiting to happen. There was not a ton of room to move out of the way so you didn't get crushed.

Actors' Performance

I have been to many of Dead By Dawn's haunted houses and this one was not too great. Actors were touching and grabbing way too much (slapping me in the head a bit too much). We couldn't touch them, but they could touch us?

Summary

Too many Chainsaws and the car horns were enough to make you deaf. My ears were ringing and sore for hours after. Could do a better job next year at being scary. I didn't like that they wouldn't let groups of less than 6 go. There wasn't a huge wait to get in. Would have been better to go in a smaller group than making us go as a group of 8. They were a bit rude about it...

Review

Signage / Visibility / Location

The haunt is located in downtown Manitowoc, so it is very easy to find. The location isn't the creepiest, but it is very unique. She has run haunts in old churches, sanitariums, and literal haunted paranormal sites, but this year she does it in her very own costume shop and house. Thats right, the House of Bathory is the very place she lives her semi-normal everyday life. There really isn't any signs pointing the way, but if you get directions it is easy to find.

Wait Area / Line Entertainment

The wait is outside on the sidewalk, and it's a regular old line. Remember this when planning for your wait. We arrived around 8:00 and enter around 8:35. As for entertainment, there was music playing, and it was Razor 94.7 night, so there were live remotes going on. Other than that it's a typical wait.

Most Unique

The most unique thing about this haunt is what I mentioned before. The fact that she is doing this in the very space she lives each and every day. When your walking through checking out the amazing scenery, remember that most of this stuff belongs in her house as well as the haunt. The way they made it look like a real mansion as the name sounds made this really cool.

Actors' Performance

The actors were very good. There was a varied amount of ages of actors. They used a lot of kids, but appropriately so. There was a lot of clowns in one room, but I loved the use of the trippin' Alice in Wonderland scene. (wait, isn't Alice in Wonderland always trippin'?) The best character was by far the Mad Hatter, but they were all very good, and always in character. This has always been a good actor/quality haunt.

Summary

See above. It was great, from the unexpected (I'd like to say, but that'd ruin it) to the usual everything was very well done. She always puts a lot of effort in her haunts, and I would say this is the best one she has done in a while. There were a lot of new things I've never seen before, and it was well worth the time we waited. Overall we waited about a half hour for a 17 minute haunt. It was a lot of fun.
