Beginning our second night in Milwaukee, WI, we started off our evening at Milwaukee’s only haunted cornfield, Spooky Stalks.
Located on a huge piece of land, just about 20 minutes northwest of downtown Milwaukee, we were amazed that such an attraction existed so close to the urban area.
Not only does it exist, but it is also quite amazing!
As we parked on the street and walked down their entrance driveway, our first shock was only seconds away. Before even reaching the ticket window, an actor who had
been standing still watching us approach, showed unbelievable patience while waiting to attack us. When it finally came, it was one of the most unpredictable frights we
have seen yet!
After finally making it to the beginning of the tour, we were greeted by our guide, who was naturally 6 foot, 8 inches tall. As he explained the rules of the property,
we could hear screaming from a shack that could be seen in the short distance ahead of us.
The big man then motioned for us to go towards that shack. His children were hungry…
We walked the first section of the path, surrounded by corn that was nearly a foot taller than us! Arriving at the shack, we entered with caution. We found several
actors in torture scenes that were very convincing. As we eventually found out, these two actors performed all the attacks in that shack. What great usage with
As we traversed more of the trail, we came upon additional shacks including one with a vortex and one with a clown/circus theme. Actors had great initial attacks and
were playful as they pursued their victims.
In addition to extremely creepy cornfield paths, there were a number of additional wooded scenes that helped to round out the tour. Some actors used car parts to
slam and startle, as others misdirected us to assist in setting up other attacks.
As an added bonus, upon exiting, we were led into a “hearse graveyard” filled with many different models of former funeral cars. A nice bonus feature!
If you are looking for a rural Halloween experience close to home that includes fun, fright, and is family friendly, then don’t miss Spooky Stalks Haunted Cornfield!

This haunt was a lot of fun! The grounds are spooky and it sets up the mood. They have a covered waiting with actors milling about to scare you. The wait was a little longer than we expected,
but it was nice when we went through - we never ran into the group ahead of us nor did the group behind us run into ours. Well, not until a girl from their group went running past us in sheer
terror (despite the "no running" rule). LOL. They don't sell concessions, which I think may be a drawback. I'd suggest beverages at least! (By the way, there are 2 port-a-potties on site.)
There's no over the top gore. As you work your way through the cornfield you encounter goblins and ghosts and along the way there are a few buildings to wander through. We had screams at
All in all it's good, creepy fun for the whole family. I'd definitely go back again next year to see what else they come up with.

This is so much more than a haunted cornfield - its an evening of thrills and chills that are sure to please everyone! From the moment you pull up to the road you are thrown into an atmosphere
of lighting, special effects, a hearse and ghoulish characters approaching you. The holding area is a virtual haunted museum in itself, with a skeleton bride in a casket, spooks banging on the side
of the building, black lights and a friendly but haunted hostess. As you travel unguided through the maze at your own pace, there is a creepy new and exciting display at every turn, and a
monster waiting to jump out and spook you standing right behind it. There seem to be new additions every year, and none of them disappoint. The monsters range in age and size and truly want
to scare you. We have been attending this event every year since it began - for six years! - and it gets better and better every year. This is one Halloween ritual my family always enjoys. It
is good fun for all at a great value (there are even coupons on the website).
This event is what you make of it. If you do not want to be frightened, the monsters will not touch you so you can just walk through and enjoy all of the wonderful Halloween displays. But if you
are in the mood for a good scare, leave yourself open to the fun and enjoy yourself.
