ALL-NEW IN 2013: we have limited tickets for our newest and most innovative ticket option, DARE TO SCARE ticket, sold online only and tickets are time slot sensitive. The Dungeon of Doom Haunted House has created a ticket option for those seeking a real rush scaring the crap out of unsuspecting customers (like our Killer Crew experiences nightly) yet is safe and simple enough for anyone to participate. Dare To Scare is all about getting your turn to scare our customers with innovative scare booths hidden along the path where the unsuspecting customers tour the haunt. When you see guests approach, you trigger the power switch that activates the scare. Now that’s a pure adrenaline rush!

How the Dare To Scare ticket works: when you purchase this optional ticket online in addition to your Entry ticket, the Dare to Scare ticket will have a date and time slot which you must be on location into our VIP waiting line near the entry of our building (same area as the VIP entry). Once there, you will be verified as on-time or late* and then escorted to get into the normal waiting area inside the building. You will then proceed as normal through the attraction and at the end of the attraction you will present your Dare to Scare Ticket to our special Dare To Scare customer rep and they will guide you to 1 of our 9 different scare booths. In your selected booth, you will have 10 minutes of scaring our Dungeon of Doom customers from inside our haunt!

Horrifying high-grade scares, immersive scene design that envelops you in terror, a world class cast of actors and great ticket price values make the Dungeon of Doom one of the undisputed best haunted house attractions in the Chicago and Milwaukee region, and a legend in the entire haunt industry. This Halloween, it’s time for you to face the legend…if you dare!

*Note: if you arrived late of your assigned time slot you may have to wait upon your exiting the Attraction for an open position.
