Voted Wisconsin’s Scariest Haunted House year after year.
Now in our 13th year we offer 7 haunts covering over 40 acres with a large indoor cue and concessions area. Premiering this year is the Grimm Reaper Railway and “Terror Treatment”. Terror Treatment is an enhanced haunt experience you can only purchase for someone else and only online in advance to your haunt experience with us, but it is a secret. On the Grimm Reaper Railway you have never experienced a train ride like this one. In addition to the Grimm Reaper Railway this year our guests will enjoy 2 Themed Haunted Houses, one of America’s most unique Hayrides, with the Midwest’s Largest Vortex Tunnel, A Pine Forest Trail, a mind bending maze, a Haunted Corn Maze all for one price. Another exciting attraction is our “Zombie Expedition”. In this attraction guests embark on custom designed wagons for a nearly half mile trek through seven meticulously built scenes from America’s favorite Zombie show taking out zombies with paint balls. Forget about those zombie shooting galleries you have seen before. This is 15 minutes of high energy, adrenaline pumping fun. Charge your smart phone and grab your friends and set out beyond the safety of the city lights to experience the Terror and Fun of Wisconsin’s Largest Scream Park.

Review This Haunt
  • Email Verified This is one of my favorites

    Have returned several times and it's better each time. The actors are amazing and the setting is perfect. The scene is set as you drive the dark roads back to the farm. Last year, I took my 19 year old nephew the last time and it was a great bonding experience for us. We were loving the zombie expedition - able to buy more ammo if needed - and we needed it (my husband was more conservative). I usually do a haunted house night with my friends and every one of them wants to go back to Ixonia. Suggest the speedpass combo it's worth it.

  • it was more dangerous then scary

    There honestly should be a warning that the ground is very uneven and the stairs were awful! It was actually very funny ... I was startled a few times but never scared ... Not a lot of blood or guts I would say this is a family haunt... maybe 11 or 12 and up. There was A LOT of walking which is fine but I highly suggest you wear shoes you dont mind getting full of mud! The overall idea was awesome... we had fun even if we didnt scream ... we laughed ... a lot! I do not think it was $30 or $40 worth, maybe if it was more terror centered ... OH the haunted hay ride was actually great ! Scary and creepy!

  • great experience

    if you have never been to a haunted house im telling you this is the one you need to experience it is well worth the money it lasts about an hour and you get more scares in each area our favorite spots were the mine and the backwoods revenge the old lady looking for her lost grandkids Zacharias and Jebadiah she is a entertainer and a good laugh for all ages and then the green house is next the girls in there are a riot screaming and chasing you thru there... would definitely recommend to anyone..... thanks for a great experience.....

    this haunted venue is very unique there are actors and props everywhere you turn they tell stories in areas especially in the second woods the old lady is a hoot looking for her lost children asking customers for there help, and the butcher shop is fantastic overall the haunt is amazing and well put together would strongly recommend going.....

  • Genuinely Terrifying

    As a huge horror fan, I'd been a little jaded lately with the haunted house scene. The last couple haunts my girlfriend and I went to seemed keen on herding people through as fast as possible just to ramp up their ticket volume. When you get clumped into groups of 8 with strangers, it's only scary at the front, and then you're just walking through being nice to the actors by feigning fright. Great way to spend so much money! Well, this just changed. With The Dark Side, you're split into groups of 2 (or 3 is the exception if you really want to be in a group of 3). The Descent kicked it off on a powerful note, where you go down this creepy mineshaft with winding hallways and tons of props and people jumping out at you (it reminded me of My Bloody Valentine, but with some clowns thrown in too). From the Corn Maze (with creepy-ass farmers lurking in the shadows yelling at you to get off their property) to the Greenhouse (with creepy children crawling on the ground, out of the steam, slowly coming after you) to the Hayride (where a werewolf literally sat down next to me!) the scares/screams kept coming. There were also cool spots specifically designated for photos. And the separate Zombie Expedition? A double-decker bus hauled by a tractor took us to 7 different sets (elaborately built). Paintball guns are bolted into the railing and you get 75 paintballs (but for an extra $5, you can buy another 75 halfway through). Ticket prices above don't list the discounts we paid. We went on the first weekend they were open, so haunted house tokens (the 6-in-1 deal) were $25, not $30. The extra Zombie Expedition is listed at $15, but if you combine it with the main haunt, it's only an extra $10. So for $35 each we got to shoot zombies and go through the haunted houses (took about an hour and a half to do everything, and that's considering we got to skip all the lines - only because a fast-pass is included when you buy the combo). The only real downside is the drive out to Ixonia, but even that has its upside. Coming from Milwaukee, it was about a 40-minute trip one way, although it set the mood for me and my friends, driving through eerie cornfields and farm land. I'm already looking forward to go back next year and check it out again!
