Subject:Mars Haunted House Great times!
 I attended the Mars Haunted House last night, Halloween night. The line outside was extremely long. My wait time to get in was approximately 45 minutes. The two characters that walked thare line were great! Looking at the building from the outside, I was curious how a haunted house could be pulled off in such a small place. The price was a bit more than I am accustomed to but afterwards I told everyone I knew that it was well worth the money. All of the characters inside the haunted house were dressed excellent and I loved all their eyes which were obviously contacts. I went in with 3 other people that I did not know and I can't count how many times I screamed, yelled "Oh sh*t!" And grabbed onto the stranger in front of me. This activity was the most fun that I have had in years.

 This was the first time I came to this haunt in 7 years. I must say it was pretty good! Although it's not the longest haunt, it had pretty much everything. Dark hallways, things touching you that you prefer to not, stinky smells, psychos, disturbing scenes, and very good actors that made it seem real! Summary Good job Mars!

 The Mars Haunted House has a definite advantage over the others, that being their claim to be a haunt that is actually haunted. Truth or hype? We were about to find out... We attended on a rainy Sunday night, and were able to immediately enter the haunt. As you walk into the first room an audio recording tells you that there was a disturbing incident that happened there... but they never go into the details of what in fact that was. It's not until after that I read on their website what that incident actually was. So if you're curious like me, make sure you read all about it on their site. The haunt is dimly lit with very narrow hallways. The flooring is filled with ramps and steps that make you tread cautiously, which gives you the feeling that they were put there on purpose to slow you down. Who put them there, and why? This had me feeling a little paranoid, like I was stepping into a trap. There's all sorts of things hanging in this haunt, many I didn't want to touch! The props were VERY life-like, adding to the 'real haunt' vibe that they hang their hat on. Those who have weak stomachs... you've been warned! There's an odor throughout the haunt that I couldn't quite put my finger on. If fear has a smell, I guessing it would smell like that. There's many twist and turns that provide many opportunities to scare in a short period of time. Unfortunately it seemed as though some of those opportunities were missed. I'm guessing that they do not have as many workers on Sunday as they would on a Friday or Saturday. I'll definitely attend this haunt again on one of those nights to get the full experience of the Mars haunt! Overall, the Mars Haunted House had our adrenaline pumping and had us jumping. If you're in the area, make sure you check out this historic haunt! Signage / Visibility / Location It was very easy to find, just look for the hearse parked out in front! Wait Area / Line Entertainment It was cold and raining when we attended, and it was a Sunday night. There was no wait, and only one actor out front. We were only around him for a few seconds, but he was entertaining! Actors' Performance The haunt seemed very light on actors, but the ones that were there gave it their all! Great timing by every actor. Sets Scenes / Props / FX This is a dimly lit haunt, but the rooms that we could see provided us with lots of eye candy. Length It took about 15 minutes to walk through, and we were really taking our time to look at all the great details inside the haunt. Crowd Control We didn't have to worry about crowd control on a rainy Sunday night. Good thing... as it was cold out. Brr! Most Memorable Moment Definitely the bathroom. It was comical and disgusting all at the same time! Summary The Mars Haunted House appears to have lots of history and some great sets to work with. It's a quick haunt, but done well and it was enjoyable for the most part. I can't wait to attend again on a 'prime-time' night with better weather!

 Mars Haunted House by spookshow babe (Review Crew) after attending on Saturday, October 6, 2012 at about 9:30 a.m. Submitted: Wednesday, October 17, 2012 Fun Factor: High Fear Factor: Medium Review This Haunted House is always guaranteed to leave you scared and excited for more! Every year Mars Haunted House does a great job at creating a spooky atmosphere and the ghouls and goblins of this attraction keep you on the edge with an exciting twist around every corner! It has been a favorite of mine for many years and every year I loo forward to the next time I can visit this haunt. Signage / Visibility / Location Easy to see, there is a hurst right in front of the haunt and its visibly lit as well. Wait Area / Line Entertainment There are always fun monsters outside entertaining guests with scares and humor. Actors' Performance As always they do a very nice job of keeping you on your toes and will come at you when you least expect it! Wonderful use of fog in some of the rooms where monsters linger and pop out of nowhere! Sets Scenes / Props / FX The sets are detailed and unnerving. I was just a little disappointed this year however that they didn't change the layout of the haunt much, it seemed very similar to last year, but I still enjoyed it. Length About 20 minutes. Crowd Control We never caught up to anyone while in the haunt and no one caught up to us so it was controlled very well. Most Memorable Moment I really enjoyed the rooms full of fog where monsters tormented you not only with jumping out from random places where you couldnt see them and then disappearing quick, but they also made good use of creepy noises to remind you that they could jump out again at any moment and get a scream out of you. Summary Overall, I enjoyed this haunt as I do every year. Its a classic haunt where they use every technique to scare you, so though some may be expected scares others are completely unexpected and I feel that the use of both techniques are what really keep you excited and scared to see what will happen next.

 So at the beginning I was terrified and I almost started crying before I payed my money. At the end I was so glad I did. It was my first haunted house ever and I usually hate scary things but it was fantastic! I want to go back next weekend!

 Last night I went to Mars haunted house and had the crap scared out of me. I normally don't get scared from things like that but they know how to scare at mars. I have attended three other haunts this year an nothing compared to the scare factor of Mars haunted house. Every room I entered there was someone or something jumping out at me. They also had great lightning and effects. I would recommend this haunt to anyone that is looking for a great scare.

 The sets were fantastic! Used real furniture of course, lots of corners. Good use of strobelights and blacklight paint. And the cast's makeup was AMAZING. I had to resist the urge to ask who did their makeup. The clowns especially were good. And one of them was real good looking. Yeeeeeah. Wish I had given him my number--would've been odd to stop there and give it to him, though...(if he reads this, I think he had a red mohawk, hard to see in strobelights.) The crazy doctor's assistant asked my friend and I what was wrong, why we were in to see the doctor. My friend said chronic headaches. He told her to stop tying her weave so tight. I said my knee hurt. He said I should stay off them. D: The actors invading personal space was soooo great. I frequently had a monster within inches of my face. I shrieked every time. They were so good at that. The only trouble was the dinner table. (Psst, noodles and extra thick blood!) What? I give it an A-.

 Overall it was the best house i ever been to! I mean it scared thecrap out of me, and my personal favorites were the pitch-black hall ways, the many exit doors, the begining with the dead bride, and the the morgue! Who ever is going there next, be ready to be scared, and dont chew gum inside! Because i did and I inhaled my gum and i swallowed it. :-/ Bye! P.S. I'm fourteen-years-old and i live on the north side of Milwaukee, so i was so attracted to this i traveled about a half hour to have fun!

 The overall rating we would give this haunted house is a B+. The time it took us to get through the milton's house was only 17 minutes. Yes it was full of loud and constant screams, we agreed after that it should be much longer. The cross-dresser was a good relief because he made us laugh. Before we got to the room he had overheard my name and used it to get our attention. The dark rooms are a good idea, but mybe have a little more light so you can see the walls you might run into. The actors did a great job of staying in character, because i was freaking out and it was probably hard not to laugh at me. The clowns weren't very scary because all they did was honk their horns. Overall it gave us a good scare!!

Subject:GREAT, MUST GO!!!!
 I go to haunted houses everywhere from Oconomowoc, Hartford, Fond du lac, and Sheboygan. Mars Haunted House was one of the BEST haunted houses I have been to in a long time. I hate when I spend money expecting to be scared only to leave feeling riped off, but that was not the case at this place. IT WAS WELL WORTH THE DRIVE AND MONEY!!! The sets and monsters were great and really scary. It wasn't cheesy like so many of the haunted houses are. The great thing about this place is you never knew what was going to happen next, not only did the people in front get scared so did the people at the end of the group as well. The monsters even had us laughing at some of their funny lines. If I was guarantied that every haunted house would be as great as this one was, I would go every weekend. FYI, touch it or she will scream:)

 Signage / Visibility / Location Easy to find based on the line forming around the block and the creepy people roaming the line Wait Area / Line Entertainment The waiting area was roped off, the wait was only about 20min, which it was well worth what we experienced inside Most Unique The rooms were so detailed and not "cheezy" most places have yard decorations and random fake spiders everywhere. This place was like the set of a movie, and every scene got more and more scary Actors' Performance AWESOME! I screamed so much my throat hurt the next day, you never knew where they were coming from or if they would be following you Additional Comments if you don't like clowns this place isn't for you! that's the only hint u get!

 Wait Area / Line Entertainment The area outside is a bit scary all on its own. Interesting sights just people watching while in line. The actor working the line had an awesome makeup job and really was terrific. He stayed in character, got up close and personal, and is a top-notch actor. Props to you buddy! Most Unique I think the most unique thing about this haunt is the variety of scares. Actors' Performance The slithering actors were great. TV person...you especially. The little girl that could "see me" was awesome. Finally, even weeks later, the actress I remember was the psycho chick. She flew at me and was so realistic. I can't tell you how great you did that night. Were you running or were you flying?

 Mars is on its 13th year of scaring the "crap" out of people and this year proves to be NO exception ... and I mean that literally! The 13 year old girl in the group ahead of us did just that (icky poo)! Another girl in the group ahead of us had to leave early because she was hyperventilating. The actor's performance was some of the best I have seen yet! Their passion for fear begins in line where the ghoul was spewing blood at us, and continues to the very end where a female ghoul in a shrieking voice begged us not to leave. What makes this haunt most frightening is the 'in your face, make you jump' type of scares. I honestly spent most of the time trying not to bury my face in my husbands sweater! The actor flying off the dr.'s table with the round loud saw really convinced me and my husband that our limbs were next! At certain points I felt surrounded and there were loud noises with bursts of air that made me actually feel like they were grasping us! As everyone knows actors are not allowed to touch you, but I felt this was a very creative use of prop's to give the sensation of being caught. The length is typical of most haunted houses, but you rarely find yourself simply walking down a dark hallway. So every minute is well worked out effectively. As far as crowd control goes, we went in as a group of two which I feel makes you feel more "alone" ... however the group in front of us requested to go in as 8 and they were allowed. I am not certain if this will change as the season becomes busier. In conclusion ... Mar's knows what to do and when to do it! I strongly recommend this haunt for anyone who likes great acting and "in your face scares". I do NOT recommend this haunted house for anyone with 'weak bowels' ;) Signage / Visibility / Location This is my 3rd year attending this haunt so personally I have the directions down. But I remember the first time it was a bit tricky! There are no large signs and the only indication of a haunt is the line of people outside. However it is right off of Interstate 94, on the corner of 8th and 'historic' Mitchell St. On a busier night parking may be difficult as there was NO designated parking area, we just parked in a spot on the street in front. Wait Area / Line Entertainment - Score: 3 There are no concessions, but there ARE ghouls ... and they are pretty intense. Students in front of us were being scared right out of line and off into the distance! You will wait outside on the sidewalk so you can also find entertainment in the locals walking/driving by ;) Since we were at "Mars" on opening night and right as they opened the wait was not long. But I do know from past experience to expect a much longer wait as the season progresses! There is a port a poty :) Actors' Performance - Score: 5 From the very beginning the actors are in character and on cue! All the actors are being PAID for what they do so there is always that added incentive to bring out the inner demon! I'm still shaking from the intensity! WOW Sets / Scenes / Props / FX - Score: 5 The props were well thought out and made to make you jump! Creepy loud circular saws and "air blowers" that make you feel like the actors are actually touching you! Brains, guts, dead bodies ... ick! Length - Score: 4 It took us about 15 minutes to finish the haunt. Although this may seem short, the quality makes up for what other haunts may fill with nonsense. Crowd Control - Score: 5 We went in just two of us and loved it ... the group of 13/14 yr olds in front of us requested to go in as a group of 8. Most Memorable Moment Oh my ... I am still laughing ... I mean at first 'it' scared me ... then when you get a good look you can not help but laugh, I don't want to give it away ... but 'it' propositioned my husband ... so funny, and such great acting!

 Mars is a very popular house in the Milwaukee area with good reason. They give haunt-goers intense scares and know what works. If you are the type of person who goes to one haunt a year on your way to other things, Mars Haunted House fits the bill. Lots of actors populate the rooms which include great change of pace comedy skits as well as all out sensory assaults. If you are in back be wary of the sneak and scream where a girl follows you down a dark hall and makes your head split open by screaming bloody murder. Overall I give this haunt a three and a half out of five. Signage / Visibility / Location This haunted house is on a main street, but signage is minimal. On most nights this season it will be pretty obvious because the lines out front run deep and the street along the haunt gets a little rowdy. Wait Area / Line Entertainment - Score: 3 No line because it was opening night. The only people outside were imposing security guards. Upstairs, before going in, a maid gave us the rules and she had phenomenal grotesque face makeup (which makes it surprisingly difficult to pay attention to her, but you've probably heard the rules before). Actors' Performance - Score: 3 Mars is an in-your-face type of haunted house. This makes the first half of the haunted house very intense. However, towards the end I became numb to continuous ear splitting screams and surprise attacks. I'm pretty sure that there is a hell-spawn portal somewhere in the house spewing out identical 15 year old girls with invincible vocal cords. The mad surgeon was the best actor in this haunt and posed like a wax figure until we were all in the room. Sets / Scenes / Props / FX - Score: 5 Impressive detail was noticeable in all rooms and sets, and I definitely lingered in certain areas for a better look. Actors wore custom contacts, netting hung down from the ceilings, blood and guts might as well have been real, and neon and blacklights were in full effect. From funny, to scary, to straight up gross, everything worked very well. An example of great design is the clown room. Slow strobes are really disorienting and allow the actors to move positions, I'm not even coulorophobic but the clowns were very unsettling. Air cannons are used in more than one room and a very useful device for haunts to physically interact with victims without touching them. Length - Score: 4 Mars lasted about 20 minutes but it seemed longer because of the back-to-back-to-back screaming. Crowd Control - Score: 4 There were no issues with crowd control while I was there. Inside the haunt, there was a crazy dark and disorienting maze which made groups back up. I'm not a big fan of these mazes, but it was well done as long as you don't mind bumping into your friends awkwardly Most Memorable Moment The toxic construction room (do those two things even go together?) embodied everything this haunt does well. Frightening gas masks, loud noises, and surprises gave me at least a two room disorientation hangover.
