Email Verified Consistently Scary and well-executed
The CMH Haunted House is a well-run and well-executed event. The venue itself is scary. Built in 1886, this Victorian Gothic house was at one time used as the Waukesha Springs Sanitarium. There's definitely a curious "vibe" in this house, which is amplified by the creative and passionate students who invent a wide range of creepy scenarios in the three-story structure. More than one guest has chosen to exit the route early, which can itself be a challenge since some of the back-stage areas are creepy even when not decorated or staffed. Considering this haunt is converted from normal to scary in less than 2 months, by volunteer students and parents, for a 4-day event, with admission under $10, and with all proceeds donated to Veterans' charities, this haunt remains on our Must See list, and we continue to be regular visitors. Note: They offer a family-friendly hour every Saturday, which is toned down for younger visitors. They still recommend ages 7-8 and above; parents will need to use good judgement and be prepared to split up or risk leaving the route early.
