Review

I love how this haunted attraction is located in a huge old factory. It would be awesome if they could find a way to use the whole factory for the haunt instead of just the three stories (We thought all five stories were going to be used prior to going). The best part of this attraction was the 3-D haunt. I think a lot of the actors were very good at playing their parts. The cost is a bit higher than other haunted houses in the area but it did take us a bit longer to go through it than other haunted houses too. Louder and jumpy sound effects could have added to this experience. Overall I know our group had a good time and loved the fact we did not run into other groups in the house.

Review

To get started the wait was only about 30-45 minutes. The nice thing is that the entire line is an indoor wait. There were two actors working the line, not very scary but they had some nice costumes.
Once at the front of the line in order to get started you actually have to walk up to the top level of the factory. There was one actor working the stairs and he was rather funny. The first room we were directed into was an office. There were two actors working the room and the room had an extremely bad odor. This could have been by design but was strong enough to make someone gage. You then travel though some hallways which had potential for many startle points but it seems like there were not enough actors to stage them all and the actors that were there really missed the mark on the correct time to jump out. The hallways were made up of sheets and plywood walls. Not really much design they were rather plain.
After the top floor you walk down some stairs and enter the second area which is 3D. This area was not very scary but someone spent a great deal of time painting because the path seemed to go on for a long period of time. The paint was all the same though.
The last level was clowns. Somewhat amusing even fun at times.

Summary

Starting with the good, The actors were allowed to use hand props, sometimes hitting you with soft items or throwing things at you. This added some, many haunts do not allow actors to use props like that. There was a 3D portion which is always cool (see bad section also)
Now with the bad, could have used many more actors. The haunt lacked design, made up mostly of curtains and plywood walls with nothing on them, there were only a few structured rooms. In the dark hallways the actors kept turning on flashlights and flicking lighters, this was very hard on the eyes and rather uncalled for. There was a 3D section that was the same thing over and over again, a lot of poke a dot hallways.
In closing – compared to other haunts, this one is on the upper end of cost, I would consider going somewhere else first.

Review

After getting tickets for this event, you get the benefit of waiting inside until it's your turn to go in. Not only does this haunt have excellent scene setups, but they also have worked in good transitions between many of the rooms. (Characters often interact with as you move from one scene to the next.) I'm a big fan of subtleties like that.

I didn't time how long we were in there, but it was longer than most haunts I've been to. One negative is we did catch up to the group ahead of us a few times. Fortunately, when we asked "should we wait?" one of the actors in a scene said yes. (I'm not a fan of actors breaking character, but I do appreciate it in this instance, as it allowed us to fully enjoy the event.) The actors in that scene continued to do their "thing" (I don't want to give anything away) until it was time for us to move on.

They use a 3-D effect in a portion of the haunt that is awesome.

Summary

I had a lot of fun in this event. The people at Theater of Lost Souls work hard to give you good time. I want to go there again next year....which is the best compliment someone can give a haunt.

Review

This was our first year attending this haunt. We were not sure what to expect after we read the review but ad the saying don't believe everything you read. This is a great haunt and had some great scares. I loved the 2nd floor with the 3D very cool affects. The whole doctor scenes were also good and loved when the doctor tried to give someone in our group a shot.

Summary

We enjoyed this haunt and will most likly be back next year to see what new things they will add since this is there frist year in a new spot and have alot of potentail for growth.

Review

I was disappointed to hear The Theater of Lost Souls moved to Manitowoc, however we had so much fun in previous years we felt it was worth the drive. We were NOT disappointed! The new location is excellent.

Summary

Great haunt!

Review

if you like actors getting in your face then this is the place for you. the scare factor for this was moderate but not that impressive. im a haunted house enthusiast and this would be one that i will not go back to. we had a security guard that followed us around and if we so much as talked to the monsters he threatened to throw us out. overall i did not have a pleasurable visit.
