Scares abound this season with truly haunting haunted houses. Terror on the Fox is back for its 20th season, teaming up with The National Railroad Museum & the Green Bay Preble Optimist Club. One of the country’s most intense, fright-filled haunted houses, giving back to the community has never been so terrifying! An antique passenger train takes you to the haunted mansion, zombies walk the grounds and screams surround you at this haunted fundraising event. If that’s not enough for you, check out Burial Chamber Haunted House Complex in Neenah, voted one of the best scream parks in the country. Burial Chamber features two haunted houses, one haunted woods attraction and a burial simulator. For even more scares, try Misery Haunted House in Berlin, which features an escape room, or The Morgue Haunted House in De Pere, a three-floor haunted house that you don’t have to stand around for — try sitting outside the bonfire instead!
