Review


Bravo! Of the 3 haunts I toured in the Appleton area, Neenah’s Most Haunted did the best job of providing a ghoulishly fun time for haunt goers of all ages. While the scares here are definitely kid appropriate, adults will definitely enjoy the clever room layouts and polished performances of the ghouls.



This was the first time I’ve visited Neenah’s Most Haunted and from what I’ve read it’s been around for 25 years. While I’m guessing many of the actors are only half the age of this haunt I was pleasantly surprised with the superb job the young actors did portraying their roles. The years of experience are definitely evident in the creative room and hallway layouts, the elaborate detail found in many of the rooms and the articulately dressed and skillfully positioned ghouls.

Signage / Visibility / Location


While there may not have been much in the way of signage to lead you to this haunt the location and visibility of the venue from the street make it very easy to find.

Wait Area / Line Entertainment


Come dressed for the elements as the wait line is outside. A few costumed actors roam the parking lot and waiting line to help build your anticipation.

Actors' Performance


Nicely done! The actors may have been youthful but their enthusiasm and ghoulish roles made their performances very enjoyable.

Sets Scenes / Props / FX


Elaborate set designs and secret passage ways make for a very visually stimulating experience. While this haunt may not have the big FX effects and props as some of the other venues the attention to detail and execution of each rooms theme more than make up for it.

Length


Took our group 14 minutes to complete our adventure.

Crowd Control


The waiting line was clearly roped off….but there was no line when my group attended this haunt.

Most Memorable Moment


Quite a few rooms standout….the one that stood out the most for me was how perplexed I felt trying to find the exit for the ghost room. I’m still not quite sure how I exited the room…or how it was that I didn’t find the exit sooner.

Summary

Of the 3 haunts I toured in the Appleton, Neenah and Menasha area, Neenah’s Most Haunted did the best job of providing a ghoulishly fun time for haunt goers of all ages. While the scares here are definitely kid appropriate, adults will definitely enjoy the clever room layouts and polished performances of the ghouls.

Review

My third haunt of the year was Neenah’s Most Haunted; a haunted house fundraiser for a youth drop in center in Neenah called Youth Go. Celebrating 25 years of fear, this attraction has not lost a thing. I have attended this haunt in the past and was impressed by what they do with what they have.  While they do not use animatronics or holograms, their scenes and actors are more than capable of giving you a good time. Nonprofit haunts are refreshing in that they care more about the experience than the “cattle herding” you can experience at some of the more commercial haunts.

Getting to NMH is a little tricky, but if you have directions you should be fine. I came into town from a completely different area than I’m used to so that made a big difference. I did not notice any signs along the way, but once you are upon the haunt you know you’re in the right place. The building they use is an old city garage that looks like it was abandoned. It gives off a pretty good aura.

They do not have an indoor waiting area, so be sure to dress warm if the temps are cool. There are a few actors walking around and getting in your face. One of the best line actors I’ve seen this year was here. He never once broke character as he stared you down. We only had to wait about 7 minutes, and there was only one group ahead of us. They send groups in about 5 minutes apart, but we still ran into the group ahead of us at one point. That’s not necessarily on them; it could have been us going fast or the other group going slow.

The actor’s were very good, especially considering a vast majority of them are probably in their teens. They didn’t break character, and even if we were lost and needed help finding our way they helped get us straight while using it to enhance their characters.

As mentioned above they don’t go all out crazy on expensive pieces of equipment, but they still build a great haunt. They utilize favorites such as dark mazes and a vortex, but also use some original things such as multiple rooms with things hanging from the ceiling. (You’ll think its original when you see it!) This effect makes it easy to get lost at times.

It took us roughly 15 minutes to get through, which I would say is average. Overall with finding a parking spot, getting tickets and waiting in line we were there for around 45 minutes.

At $10 a ticket this a good valued haunted house. It’s fairly family friendly, and it’s wheelchair accessible (the only one I have ever been to that is) so it gives people who don’t necessarily have the chance to go to experience it. Add in the fact that it’s run for a good cause and you have a win-win.

Review

Now in its 25th year of operation, Neenah's Most Haunted is the longest running non-profit Haunted House in the Fox Valley and its experience shows.  This haunted house is a fundraiser for Youth Go, a non-profit youth drop in center in Neenah and is fully wheelchair accessible.  At only $10 a ticket, it is also a budget-friendly haunt!


Getting to and finding Neenah's Most Haunted is easy.  The directions on the Haunted Wisconsin website got straight to the haunt from far away and the lights, hearse, and lawn littered with patrons and actors (called "scharacters") let us know we were at the right place!  Mr. K, the easily scared, and I arrived around 8:00pm and there wasn't anyone in line so we pretty much had the house to ourselves!  From the moment we got in line to the moment we left we were constantly surrounded by "scharacters."  What was great about Neenah's Most Haunted was the amount of interaction we had with them - we spent quite a bit of time in the first room chatting with a couple of them and they kept scaring us over and over again, even when we were expecting it!

What really stood out to me at Neenah's Most Haunted was their use of false and hidden exits.  We were constantly searching for a way out and oftentimes came to a dead end.  Luckily the "scharacters" weren't too cruel and, after a while, would give us a little hint towards where we should go.

Upon exiting, Mr. K and I were both reflecting on what our favorite parts of the house were, when out of nowhere came a man with a chainsaw!  Mr. K ran to the car and jumped in, leaving me outside to be chased around the car!  The people at Neenah's Most Haunted are enthusiastic and full of energy from start to finish, and I think that's what makes it such a great haunt for a great cause.

Signage / Visibility / Location


It's easy to get to Neenah's Most Haunted and it's very easy to see from the street - just look for all of the scharacters running around!

Wait Area / Line Entertainment


We didn't experience any wait, but I imagine the wait is much longer if you are there later at night or later in the season.  The wait is outside so dress appropriately and be prepared to be scared while waiting in line!

Actors' Performance


The actors were fabulous.  They attend classes on how to scare and it shows!  We were really impressed with how even the youngest actors had no problem at all interacting with us and could have kept us there, creeping us out, for hours!

Sets Scenes / Props / FX


Again, the sets/scenes/props were great (and designed by the same youth who run the house).  There are no animatronics and no holograms, which gives every room a very realistic feel.

Length


The whole haunt, from start to finish, lasted about 20 minutes.  We probably went through a little more quickly than usual because we were the only two in our group and Mr. K kept running away from the "scharacters!"

Crowd Control


We had no issues with crowd control as there were no other patrons present at the time we attended the haunt (though there were people lined up when we left).

Most Memorable Moment


I don't know what to call it but the hall of tubes.  It was really scary to be so crowded in and have no clue where I was going!  I also really enjoyed how personal everything felt.  Instead of just being screamed at we were actually able to interact with people.

Summary

Neenah's Most Haunted was a lot of fun for a good price.

Review


Neenah's Most Haunted celebrated their 25th year of fear this year. Neenah's Most Haunted is a non-profit haunt and all the proceeds go to help youth in the area. There are no animatronics and all of the rooms are designed by the students themselves. I have often said that the imagination of the youth is much more creative than most adults and they contribute greatly to anything "haunted". The students of Neenah's Most Haunted attend a class in the summer that teaches them how to design and how to scare. The students or "scharacters" (as they are referred to) comprise of up to 70 different actors throughout the entire haunt. The night we attended there were about 40 "scharacters" acting because of homecoming that weekend, but you couldn't tell as every corner masked a ghoul or two.



Finding Neenah's Most Haunted isn't difficult as there is a very well lit sign and plenty of ghouls wandering about the grounds. As we walked to the enterance one of my friends reached for the door of a port-a-potty and a large masked man with a chainsaw came barreling at him. It was at that point that we knew we were in for a real treat! The tickets are only $10 at the door (the most inexpensive I have seen yet) and again they go towards a really good cause. I will admit that the admission price had me concerned that this haunt may not be very scary. Boy was I wrong! From the moment you leave your car until the moment you get back in (that is if you make it out) there are ghouls surrounding you. The wait is outside so be prepared if the weather does not cooperate. The wait to enter the house was brief, but for me it seemed long as a werewolf was intent on making me his next victim.



As we entered the Haunt we were grouped into a clan of 7 people. The introductory room contained two very well versed "scharacters" and they were disturbing in a very good "off-putting" way. They taunted and teased our group until everyone was ready to leave the room screaming. However, we could not find a way out! The theme of mysterious exits echoed throughout the entire house. Nothing was what it seemed and even a veteran would find themselves confused and trapped. Each room was very carefully designed and there was never a point that we felt we were in a "non-profit" haunt!



My biggest moment of fear was walking through a hallway and hearing someone in our group say "those are REAL spider webs". I'm still uncertain if they were or not, I just knew I had to get out of there! You will notice ramps throughout the house, but that is because this haunt is 100% wheel chair accessible. We played a good game of "Ring around the Rosie, but after that each member of our group slowly disappeared. We regrouped and finally found the exit, but to our friends dismay the masked man with a chainsaw found him once again. The entire haunt took us about 25 minutes without a second of downtime. The only bad thing I can say about this haunt is that I wish I would have been able to make it to "The Hallow's", their haunted walk through the woods. The Hallow's is usually put on the opening weekend and is set at Memorial Park. It is only $5 to enjoy the fear of The Hallow's and I look forward to enjoying it next year when Neenah's Most Haunted celebrates their 26th successful year.

Summary

Neenah's Most Haunted may be inexpensive and not highly commercialized, but don't let that make you think that they can't scare you. They have been around for 25 years because they ARE that good! I recommend this haunt to those who want a great haunted attraction for a great price.
