Trail Of Terror - Final Season

Review

Oconto Jaycees Trail of Terror is a frightening HANDS ON experience. What I like the most about smaller town haunted attractions, such as Trail of Terror, is that they do not rely on the use of popular animatronics and props. All of the props at Oconto Jaycees Trail of Terror are original and appear custom made. Trail of Terror is a lengthy guide through a very dimly lit forest located about 20 minutes North of Green Bay. They are located right off of 141N on Cty Rd J. You will know you have arrived by the roaring bonfire and numerous vehicles parked on the road. The Trail of Terror is probably one of the longest Trails in the State of WI and YES you can EXPECT the actors to fall from the sky and grab you at ALL times.

Signage / Visibility / Location


They are located right off of Hwy J, which is a simple left off of HWY 141N. About 20 - 25 minutes North of Green Bay. The setting is in a very spooky and LARGE forest. There is a sign proclaiming the location and you can not miss all of the vehicles parked on the road.

Wait Area / Line Entertainment


In the Wait area you can enjoy refreshments around a HUGE bonfire along with tons of ghouls wandering about.

Actors' Performance


Trail of Terror has by FAR the MOST amount of actors I have ever seen at a haunt. You should expect to be grabbed, caressed, and jumped on by at least 3 - 4 actors at a time. The actors are really what MAKE this haunt frightening!

Sets Scenes / Props / FX


All of the sets and scenes are original and custom made. You will notice REAL dead animals (careful those who are afraid of blood). There are several unique scenes set throughout the entire trail.

Length


The entire trail from start to finish took us an HOUR to complete, making it one of the LONGEST trails (and attractions) in WI!!

Crowd Control


You are led by a very SLOW moving guide, so you will never run into other attendees ... you will only hear their screams in the distance!

Most Memorable Moment


There were several memorable moments, but the most memorable was an actor that literally fell from the sky and felt like he almost landed right on me ... I still have no idea how he did it, but it still gives me chills!

Summary

In conclusion Oconto Jaycees Trail of Terror is for those who are looking for an "original" Haunted Attraction that allows the actors to touch and grab you. If you live in Northeastern WI, this is definitely a Haunted Attraction you will want to attend!

Review

It was a clear night, perfect for a nice drive to Oconto.  But this is no joy rideā€¦  it's literally a Trail of Terror.  (insert sinister music)  Situated on farmland in a heavily wooded area, it's the perfect Halloween setting in the middle of no-where.  As we drove up, we saw a crowd of people with glow necklaces being led to their doom.  Just that sight alone, in this environment, got my adrenaline going.



You walk into the ticket building and are instantly handed a glow necklace.  I'm normally against any sort of glow sticks or LED handouts at haunts, but I'm sure this helps the actors locate their customers in the extremely dark woods.  After purchasing your ticket, you are led out to a large open field.  The wait area had a nice fire and concession/merch booth, but it really could have used some music and a few actors trying to scare people.  There wasn't that big of a crowd the night we went, but the wait was about 45 minutes.  The time seemed to drag without any sort of entertainment.  Once your number is called your group is led into the woods and your adventure begins. 



One thing to note is that there is a guide who leads you through the woods.  Although this is a great idea so you don't get lost, it does take away from the 'we're in the middle of nowhere and all alone' vibe that you would get otherwise.  The guide is not one of the actors, he's strictly there to get you along the trail.



Throughout the walk, there are a series of skits performed by their actors.  Most are humorous in nature.  They make use of the darkness quite well, and the skits are paced far enough apart to keep the walk interesting.  Although I don't rate the scare factor high, they definitely make it fun and interesting!

Signage / Visibility / Location


It was pretty easy to find, right off Hwy 41 with a lit sign.

Wait Area / Line Entertainment


There was a nice wait area with a fire and concession stand selling shirts and food.  There was a fire, but no entertainment.

Actors' Performance


Kudos to the young actors who stayed in character throughout the night!  There were plenty of actors throughout the walk.  Most of their performances were scripted, but a few ad-libbed and were very funny!

Length


The Trail itself takes about 25 minutes to a half hour.

Summary

If you're looking for a fun haunt that is light on scares, the Trail of Terror is for you.  There's a lot of great potential for it to be a SCARY haunt.
