My husband and I chose to do this as apart of our vacation on a whim when we kept on seeing a lot of billboards for this attraction around the dells and thought it sounded like fun. The tickets were a little spendy at $20 a pop but that's basically expected, considering where you are. The journey starts off with a haunted scary video of the history of the boat tours and a group of teenagers that got lost while searching for the missing tour boat. Then everyone (about 100 people) get on the tour boats and boat out onto the river. There is a story to listen to about the lost voyage on your way to the location in a "canyon" where they drop you off to explore in your VERY large group of people. Theres even a scavenger hunt you can complete along the way if you want, but we chose not to do that an just enjoy the scenery. When they drop you off you take a nice long walk through the woods/canyon on a paved walkway. Your job is to search for the missing tour boat. The walk took about 15 minutes. At the end very scary surprising things happen which was a nice twist to the adventure. Then you hurry back onto the boat to ride back to safety. The entire trip took about an hour and a half to two hours. The whole thing kind of felt like a Halloween tour any day of the year. My only real complaint was how many people go on one tour. There were two large tour boats full of people...easily 100 or so which made it difficult to hear our guide who shouted across to everyone. Also, our group was a little obnoxious during the "scary" parts. It would be nice to see them maybe only take one boat at a time, but given how much money they make off each person, I don't see that happening any time soon.
