Review

Signage / Visibility / Location

We knew how to get there from attending in the past, but if this was our first time, I'm not sure we would have been able to find it. There's a bright sign once you get there, but getting there will be the tricky part unless you have good directions. But I think that kind of lends to the spookyness of it, having it a bit outside the citylimits.

Wait Area / Line Entertainment

This house has the BEST wait area. Very big, with a big bonfire and a good concessions stand. They call out group numbers, and then when your number is called, you walk up to the house. The music volume was appropriate and you could hear them annoucing the group numbers clearly, unlike in the past. Unfortunately, the scares as you walk to the house and were in the waiting area just weren't there. I hope this is because it was opening weekend. You have to walk through a VERY dark woods, and there should be people jumping out at you, at least there was in the past. Nobody came at us, so I was a little disappointed at that. Even so, walking in a dark woods at night is creepy!

Most Unique

I'm not going to give this away, but this house has something new this year that I've never seen (or felt) in a haunted house before. Very cool and shocking! :)

Actors' Performance

Again, leading up to the house was very poor. There were MANY actors just standing around talking. The age of some of the actors seemed a bit odd to me. About half of them outside seemed to be 8 to 10 years old. I know I'm getting older, but actors this young seem to suffer from not only height disadvantages... but also they just weren't into it. Once inside the house, it was a different story!!! Most of the actors were great, several actors gave us some good scares that still have us talking.

Summary

Seriously, one of the BEST houses in Wisconsin. I've been attending scares for the past 16 years, and I can't say enough good things about this one. Excellent wait area, the house is huge which means that it's alot longer than most, it's DARK and creepy the way houses should be, they really use noises and sound effects to their benifit, and it's creative.

One thing I'd like to note, and I hope people who put on haunted houses read this. When using strobes lights, you need to be CAREFUL! I'm a professional entertainer who uses strobes, and I'm familiar with the different kinds availible. There was one point in this house where it was pitch black and we were strobed with a extremely high powered strobe (750 watts!) from about 4 feet away. A smaller strobe (75 watts or even 50)would have done the trick when it's that dark. I went to bed that night still seeing the glare of the strobe. Those high powered lights are meant to be used from a distance (like a dance hall mounted up very high), you could seriously damage someone's vison!

With all of that said, you don't have to spend a ton of money to do a haunted house right... just give use scares!
