Review

Incredible what they have done since last year. Everything, minus the train, was completely overhauled. Slaughter House was simple but extremely effective. No fancy scene work aside from the amazing facade, instead it was built for the express purpose of terrifying you as much as possible. It's filled with psychotic clowns with chainsaws and they are EVERYWHERE. The maze is designed to maximize how long your in there and to give the clowns as much as an advantage as possible. The main attraction is has so much detail it's impossible to take it all in. It's the best I've seen it and is a different level compared to anything else in the area.

Summary

Definitely not the Terror on the Fox of the past few years. It feels like someone breathed new life into this. I will be back again this year!

Review

Terror on the Fox is among the best haunted attractions in the Nation. Thirteenth Floor Entertainment Group never takes the lazy route when breathing life (or rather death) into their horrific masterpiece. They devote a significant creative effort to the haunted train, woods and both houses; the resulting payoff makes visitors (experts and novices) panicked, terrified and greatly entertained. Terror on the Fox proves that with a sufficient investment of time and energy, continuing to expand a haunted attractions without losing momentum is possible! Without giving too much away, I am going to share my experience in the different areas of the attraction.

Haunted Train Ride and Woods: Seeing the massive haunted Double Decker antique train come screeching to a halt in front of you is something you will not experience anywhere else! The train ride itself takes 15-20 minutes. There are multiple disturbing creatures on board, perhaps "souls" that remain from the circus train "crash". One attendee near me asked "is that makeup, or is that 'thing' really that scary?". That is a great sign that you aren't going to find any "Walmart" quality masks at this attraction. The ghouls are not shy and don't worry, even if you are in the upper level or hiding in the smog and strobe lights, the actors WILL get you! The haunted woods is brief, but torches lighting the darkened trail make the walk seem longer.

(S)Laughter House: The (S)Laughter house is new this year! As the story goes; a train carrying circus clowns to Milwaukee derailed in Green Bay. The terrifying and hungry clowns now take residence in the (S)Laughter house and are seeking souls to devour. The (S)Laughter house took 16 minutes to escape and you want to get out quickly as the walls twist you right in to the hands of many blood thirsty ghoulish clowns. The (S)Laughter house is "intense", the kind of fear that makes your heart skip.

Dead House: The Dead House is Terror on the Fox's main attraction. If the massive exterior doesn't impress you, you probably lost all feeling while in the (S)Laughter house. The effects of the exterior provide a clear picture of the horror to expect once inside. The Dead House is an 18 minute walk through non-stop horror scenes. There is absolutely NO DOWN TIME or boring dark hallways. The Dead house uses special effects, animatronics and carefully placed creatures to create a non-stop terrifying experience. If you manage to open your eyes long enough, you will notice that there isn't an inch of the house that is not covered by disturbing props. The Dead House really is similar to something you would see on a Hollywood horror set ... only this is real ... and you are trapped inside.

Signage / Visibility / Location


Terror on the Fox is located at the National Railroad Museum in Green Bay, WI. While attending on opening weekend, we found individuals who had traveled all the way from Illinois just to experience the "hype" that is the "Terror on the Fox". Their comments after surviving, "This is the best haunted house .. and we go to a LOT"! With GPS, as long as you can navigate to the National Railroad Museum in Green Bay, you will not miss the giant train and flashing signs letting you know where to park. Being located at the National Railroad museum allows Terror on the Fox to offer something no other haunted attraction has, an actual antique Double Decker passenger train ride!

Wait Area / Line Entertainment


The moment you step on to Terror on the Fox's territory, there are ghoulish creatures everywhere. From ticket lines, to walking through the woods. You are not safe until you make it back to the parking lot! It was opening weekend, so not a lot of "goodies or treats" were available for purchase. I am not certain if this will change as the haunt season draws closer. Wait times are going to vary depending on when you go. I have been to Terror on the Fox later in the season and waited an hour, but I have also been there early and not waited at all. Terror on the Fox is popular, so expect lines to form. If you really can not handle waiting, just purchase the VIP tickets online and you can jump right in. They do a good job of moving groups a long. CAUTION: If the weather is rainy, the wait is OUTSIDE so expect to get wet/muddy.

Sets Scenes / Props / FX


Terror on the Fox uses special effects, animatronics and carefully placed creatures to create a non-stop terrifying experience. If you manage to open your eyes long enough, you will notice that there isn't an inch of the house that is not covered by disturbing props. This haunted attraction is similar to something you would see on a Hollywood horror set ... only this is real ... and you are trapped inside. Are the rumors true? Are there really catacombs with real human bones buried below the "Dead House"?

Crowd Control


Due to the reaction of other groups (some slow down when scared/trapped and some move fast to get out) it is likely you might run into another group. In my opinion, this is fine as "safety" comes in numbers. However, avoid immature attendees that might try to ruin the experience by saying really stupid things.

Summary

$25 includes everything; haunted train ride, woods (S)Laughter and Dead House. In my opinion this is a HUGE value given the fact that it is "all inclusive" and you do not have to pay for each attraction individually. Buy your tickets online at the website and you can avoid ticket lines. Add another $10 and you can skip to the front of the lines and enjoy refreshments and a bonfire.
