With cooler weather gusting through Wisconsin, the spooky season is approaching. For many, this means trick-or-treating, but for others it means getting scared by zombies.
“I got into the business about 25 years ago and started with very basic tactics like black painted walls and Halloween costumes,” said Corey Stephens, owner of Abandoned Haunted House Complex.
Eleven months of preparation and 160 team members help pull off a successful scare; Abandoned also revamps its sets each year with high-tech audio, video, motion sensors and “scare actors.” If you’re wondering — they’re all professionals, having graduated from “Ghoul School.”
