Legends and Lore

Tonight the veil is thin between this world and the next. Troves of supernatural tales brought to Wisconsin over the generations come to life as you venture into the dark of the woods, encounter traveling performers around their fire, hear eerie tales performed by lantern light, and attempt a haunted maze under the light of the moon.

If you dare, gather in the dark for the Wendigo’s Bonfire at 7:30 and again at 9pm (a later, darker tale). Following the 9 pm Bonfire, join our Undertaker for The Night Parade - when the church bell tolls, summoning the spirits back to the other side…

Don’t Miss: Mr. Smith’s Emporium of Oddities! The Traveling Fates, The Tale of St. Dunstan and the Devil!  The Hodag Hay Maze for Little Goblins, or the Hern the Hunter Maze for those made of stronger stuff! The Legend of Jack O’Kent! And more legends and lore come to life in the woods of Wisconsin…
