The Dark Side Haunted Adventure

by BrittanyAnnBula (Junior Review Crew Member) after attending on Saturday, October 1, 2016 at about 8 p.m.

Fun Factor: Very High Fear Factor: High


The Dark Side Haunted House is one of the best haunted houses in Wisconsin! The crew at the Dark Side have put their heart and soul in creating an inviting plot that tells the story of their land as you move through the attraction. They have invested the time to include much detail every time you move you never know what to expect or what is waiting in the next room. Screams and laughter fill the scene while experiencing fear, excitement and pure enjoyment!

Zombie Expedition- The expedition is not included in your basic ticket so you will have to upgrade to include the Zombie Expedition, and let me tell you, you won’t want to miss it! As you walk to the location you will soon begin to get the creepy haunted feeling before even loading the double decker wagon to go on a 15-20 minute Zombie Expedition. Each person has a spot that is equipped with a paintball gun and a pre-loaded hopper with 75 paint balls. You then are transported around an abandoned town and as Zombies attack the wagon, you shoot! Don’t worry you won’t get all painted, they don’t touch you. This was worth the upgraded ticket and sets the mood for the rest of the haunted attractions.

The Descent- As you enter the mine and go on a quest to find missing family members you will be lucky if you make it out alive. The visibility is very limited and the creatures larking in the dark will leave you with chills. The actors will be hiding in every corner and you will never know what is waiting for you around the next turn. The mine will take about 15 minutes to go through and will lead you to the next adventure that awaits; the Hay Ride!

Twilight Nightmare- All aboard the wagon and be ready for a ride like you never expected. As you take a long ride to get to the haunted trail it has you in suspense; you are just waiting for something to come attack you’ but does it? You will have to take the ride and find out for yourself to find out. The trail is full of all kinds of thrill and suspense. Same details will make this ride one of a kind. The actors put their all into the portion of the trail by jumping, hanging and attacking you while you are on the wagon. You never know when another one is about to come out! The sharp turns will make you feel like you will end up in the trees. The hay ride takes about 20 to 25 minutes and it drops you off at your next adventure; Pine Forest Trail!

Backwoods Revenge- As you enter the trail; you are hoping to be able to escape the infected children that reside in the forest. The crew really uses its natural environment and makes it feels like you are just roaming throughout the forest. You will encounter different scenes from here and there, a bit of the time is just spent walking and living on your toes since you never know when the next creature is waiting for you! The experience is really unique and really uses the natural element of being outside and it doesn't turn it into a normal attraction. The outside, forest feel is with you the entire time.

Mephistopheles Lair- Once you enter the Lair there isn’t any turning back; well you may enter many wrong doors and get turned around and end up frustrated beyond belief; but at the conclusion of the maze you will have enjoyed every turn of it!

Schizophrenia- Just after you have escaped the last maze you will enter into a whole other world-A corn maze! You will be stalked and lead astray with hillbillies all over the place. Take care and hope that you don’t become dinner that night! The natural element of being in the country and living on the farm take full effect during this adventure. A corn field at night is a thrill all in its own; add some creepy and some characters gives corn fields a whole new level of scariness!

Foxglove Nursery- You have just entered your final attraction…a normal green house; or so you think! You will be walking a strict and narrow path that leads you right to the characters and there is no way to turn around and escape. You are forced to go right past them as you are in a green house and there are shelves and planters all over the place. This last attraction was a great way to end this whole experience; details until the very last exit never ceased to amaze me!

Signage / Visibility / Location

There was one sign on where to turn off of County Road O to Hoard Road.

Wait Area / Line Entertainment

There were several characters in line entertaining you while you waited.

Actors' Performance

They put their heart and soul into scaring you and keeping you entertained!

Sets Scenes / Props / FX

Details and the feeling of being in the outdoors on the farm were fantastic. The whole adventure flowed amazing and it was one of the best ones by far.


It took us about 90 minutes to complete the entire adventure.

Crowd Control

The lines were not that long so it wasn't needed.

Most Memorable Moment

The hay ride was what we enjoyed the most since we were in a group we were split up in all the other attractions; this one we got to experience as a group!


This adventure was fantastic and our group of 5 enjoyed every minute of it! I would highly recommend attending this adventure if you are looking to be scared, have fun and being out side trying to find your way back to your car! By purchasing the Zombie Expedition you will also have the fast pass and won't have to wait in line to long. They take 35 people at a time so the lines move quickly regardless!

Good length and area, just unorganized and not worth the money
