|Spooky Stalks Haunted Cornfield
12000 W. Appleton Ave.
Rating: 3 tombstones
Review: Cornfields are creepy anyway. Add a light drizzle and three haunted houses, and this walk is
packed full of surprises. The first house is so dark that you can't see your hand before your eyes. You
feel your way through as crazed creatures threaten you.
While walking through the cornfield, you have a hard time distinguishing which creatures are real and
which are props.
The best house on this creepy tour is the mausoleum and cemetery. One actor performs some type of
autopsy, and then you get the surprise of your life when you come across a ram man and giant gorilla
trying to pull you in from behind bars.
In this haunt, you pass a number of abandoned cars and trucks, along with the walking dead. Be careful:
Just when you think something is a prop, it suddenly comes alive.
Best scene: While walking through this cornfield, you stumble upon a totally unexpected vortex in the
Fear factor: Medium/High
What makes it unique? It's all outdoors
in a cornfield, and in the middle, this haunt has a vortex - and it's only $10.
Novice ranking: 4 tombstones - "It was pretty creepy. The third house was really scary and the vortex
made me dizzy," said Hayden Erlinder, 11, of Menomonee Falls.
