|Spooky Stalks Haunted Cornfield
12000 W. Appleton Ave.
Rating: 3 coffins
Review: Just being in a corn maze is creepy enough, but the scares start even before
you get in line to purchase your ticket. Keep this helpful hint in mind: If you think it's
real, it's probably alive.
You start by entering the first of many houses along the cornfield pathway. In the first
haunt, darkness is the key element, along with shock and surprise. Along the trail,
which is the length of three football fields, you pass a number of abandoned vehicles,
and creatures jump out from behind the cornstalks.
At one moment during the walk, six ghost-faced creatures descend on you from
different angles and, just when you think you're doomed, they retreat back into the
cornstalks. I liked that a lot.
At one of the shacks, a ghoul storms out with a pot yelling for you to stay off his
property. By the looks of him, he doesn't get many visitors - or much sunlight.
The haunt also added a huge vortex in the middle of the cornfield. Now that's
mind-blowing, and unexpected.
Outside haunts offer a different element of fear: nature.
Scariest scene: Before you enter one of the shacks in the cornfield, a ghoul stops you
at the door; you hear sawing and screaming on the other side. The ghoul yells to
someone inside the shack, "I've got three more for you. Are you hungry? The voice on
the side says: "Send them in, I've always got room for three more."
What makes it unique? It's the only haunted cornfield in Milwaukee.
Fear factor: Medium/high

This was my first time at the Spooky Stalks Haunted Cornfield and I thought they did an
The wait was short, the make-up and costumes were awesome, and my group and I jumped more
than a few times...even when we spotted a monster in the corn and knew he or she would be
coming to get us.
Highlights of the trip included the corn maze itself, the little buildings spread throughout with
lots of surprises (Watch Out For The Guy With The Chainsaw), the spinning tunnel, and the
This haunt is definitely worth the drive and the cost ($10). They only have street parking, but
we had no trouble finding a place to stick our car.
