Review

There is something new in Brown County and it has me just as excited as a Green Bay Packers win! Revenge, a haunted attraction located not far from Green Bay, took the haunt experience all the way to the end zone. If you are not familiar with the area, you are going to need a GPS to locate this attraction. This is a more rural part of Brown County filled with deer, so be careful when driving. Revenge is not as highly “advertised” as some of the other Brown County haunts so it makes it one of the “better kept secrets”.

The setting is an amazing 1903 barn that is used for events (weddings, corporate parties) when the ghouls are away. When you arrive there are some treats for purchase, a great photo opportunity (see photos) and the wait is inside so you do not have to worry about bad weather. No ghouls roaming the lines, but there are four large screen TV’s playing some great horror flick videos while you wait. Our wait was a bit longer than expected, but we quickly realized that it was because they only send your group (large or small) in at a time and make sure to time it so that all actors are ready to draw the next victim’s blood.

We walked in, I was relaxed … not my first time at the haunted rodeo. It took about 30 seconds in and I could feel my heart starting to race. When they say their haunt is “like being in a horror movie”, they do not mean poorly dressed actors with some little red balloons. If you have not seen some of the newer horror movies (The Domestics), you may not know what the scenes are mimicking, but I promise you will leave feeling as if you escaped a real life horror movie. I was scared … as hard as that is to admit, Revenge truly “scared” me and those in my group. If you are like me and say you do not “scare” easily, this haunt is for you. This haunt is not recommended for those looking for just “fun”, it is intense! After I attended, I spoke with a few others who have been to Revenge and they agreed. Actors inside were plenty, brilliant and we had no down time to catch our breath. Every inch of this space was used and it took a surprising 20 minutes at a very fast paced to escape. Revenge has definitely earned its spot as a favorite in my book!

Signage / Visibility / Location


Not easily located, you can punch in the address and Google Maps will help. In a very remote location.

Wait Area / Line Entertainment


There are treats for purchase and tickets are only $15. No online purchase option, did not check on the option to pay with card. Wait is inside, so no worries about rain. However, I can see the line potentially leading outside as this attraction becomes more popular. There are treats available for purchase and 4 large screens playing horror flick scenes while you wait. No ghouls wandering the lines while we were waiting, but not really a good area for ghouls to wander.

Actors' Performance


By far the best part of this attraction is the stellar performance of the actors. They were numerous and stayed in character the entire time, performance was far above and beyond my expectations.

Sets Scenes / Props / FX


Scenes felt genuine and props and effects were appropriately placed. We were lost and stuck a few times with no "obvious" escapes, I would love to go back and see if I can remember how to escape. The attraction intentionally makes you feel trapped. Props were unique and very unexpected, there were a few "shocking" moments with a possible visit from Annabelle herself? I would compare it to a magic trick, the goal is to keep you guessing and if you can not figure it out (which we could not) they have done it right.

Length


I expected this to be brief, the barn is 1600 sq ft, but it was much longer than expected. It took us just over 20 minutes to escape.

Crowd Control


The wait time is longer, but I would rather wait longer than be crowded with other groups. They send you in with just your group and clearly wait until all other groups have advanced so there is no running into others and no spoilers.

Most Memorable Moment


There were several in this haunted attraction, but the most memorable personally is walking carefully only to have the lights flash back on and someone is literally right in your face!! Where did they come from?

Summary

There is something new in Brown County and it has me just as excited as a Green Bay Packers win! Revenge, a haunted attraction located not far from Green Bay, took the haunt experience all the way to the end zone.

Review

This was the opening night in the second year for Revenge, and the first year that I’ve attended it. It’s always exciting going to a new haunt for the first time! Located in Sobieski, it feels like you’re in the middle of nowhere. Don’t blink or you will miss it… it comes up fast!

This also is the first time this haunt has been reviewed on Haunted Wisconsin! I’ve been to haunts in the past that have been in barns, and for the most part they are short and lackluster. Don’t let the fact that Revenge is in a barn fool you. This barn is HUGE, and the folks that put this on are NOT messing around.

This is a dark maze in a very old barn. Throw in some creepy sets, eerie sound effects, creatures and you have Revenge. There were several times it felt like we were at a dead end. Then the dread starts setting in that you are stuck in a dark maze with things all around you!

Signage / Visibility / Location


There are some nice signs, but it's on a county road so it comes up fast. I love that it's not too far out but it FEELS like you're far away. Nobody around to hear your screams!

Wait Area / Line Entertainment


There is plenty of parking, and a small wait area within the barn before you go into the haunt. While you wait, there’s different graphic horror scenes playing and a few creatures that wander around. There’s also a nice concessions area. And hey, they have IN-DOOR bathrooms!

Actors' Performance


Some actors were late on scares and others were dead on. We walked into one room to find one of the actors sitting down trying to put on a mask. At first I thought it was part of the skit, but then I realized that we just caught the actor unprepared. Since this was opening night for them, here’s hoping that as the season goes on things really gel and the scares are consistent throughout the experience. The actors that were on their game had us jumping!

Sets Scenes / Props / FX


To me, this haunt's strength is their creativity and their use of lighting. They did an amazing job throughout the haunt of using light to their advantage. One minute the light is on and you’re in a room by yourself. Then the light might flicker off and when it’s back on, you’re face to face with a nightmare!

Length


We went through the entire haunt in about 15 minutes.

Crowd Control


They did a great job with crowd control. They let very small groups go in at a time, which I very much appreciate! There's nothing worse than being loaded in like cattle and only a few get the scare while others just shuffle through. We did not bump into other groups, but we could hear them. In my book, that adds anticipation!

Most Memorable Moment


There was one room that used a strobe like effect and white paper curtains throughout the room. The creature lurking in there got me so good, I head-butted the person behind me. Ouch!

Summary

A good location, great building, and some very creative people! A solid haunt! Looking forward to seeing what the future holds in store for Revenge!
