If you want to be scared like never before this Halloween season, then there's only one place to go!
The Wisconsin Feargrounds at the Waukesha County Expo Center!
I went there on Saturday with my husband Aaron. 'Timmer' and his wife Ann Marie are the real deal when it comes to putting together three haunted houses that even the toughest of characters will get scared in.
Take my husband for example. He's a guy who laughs during horror movies. He admitted that he almost had to leave while going throug the second house because it freaked him out that much. But make no mistake, he was defintely a happy customer.
The costumes, the makeup and the detail in all of these rooms were unbelievable. There were so many times when I forgot that I was actually in Waukesha. Each room takes you to a whole new world, like a creepy living room with bugs all over the wall - AMAZING!
Oh and watch out above! You never know what direction a ghost will come out and scare you.
It's totally worth the time to get a group together and visit the Wisconsin Feargrounds!
