Haunted History Trolley Tour in Wisconsin Dells

The haunted trolley will take you to the darker side of the Dells. Prepare to learn about the hidden side of the Dells & the surprising haunted history they try to cover up! We visit a very haunted cemetery, discuss multiple haunted locations and tell you the frightening details. There are stops where we get off of the trolley, if you dare. We will look for orbs (watch out for the red orbs.) We will use our ghost meter in the search for spiritual energy. Fancy marketing has kept the death and tragedy hidden in the Dells, until now. We are going to tell & show you what they don't want you to know. Some of these stories may keep you up at night. Join us on the Haunted Dells Trolley tour and become a believer!
$25.00 per adult

This was a cool place to visit if you are into this sort of thing. I loved it and my husband found it interesting. Smaller building, but inexpensive to do.

We read it was not advisable to take kids younger than 12 I believe it was as there was a lot of John Wayne Gacy information in this museum. Although I wanted to go in, we took their advice to not go since we had our 10 yr old grandson with us.

It's a small museum but the Gacy crime scene photos made it worth the admission price.. They also had a nice display of torture devices .

This is not for everyone and parents please don't take your children under the age of 16. I saw a girl in there not older than 10 by herself. No parent was with her. I told the exhibits might be too scary for her. I was surprised that she was even allowed to pay and let in. The exhibits were interesting and learning about the different ways to punish people. Alot of good reading. Allow about 45 minutes.

I took my son there while we celebrated his 16th birthday in the dells. It may seem small to some, but a lot of detail was given about serial killers and their methods of torture. My generation grew up learning about Gacy, Dahmer, Gein, and the others. Brutal men that had brutal ends of their own. Now they have mass murders where someone gets pissed and goes for the highest kill count. There is a night and day description between serial killers and mass murderers. When my son was old enough, I started to talk about Gacy and Dahmer as we live in Illinois. He took the time to read every word posted through out the museum. He has seen torture devices from medieval times and got to see the variations of torture in the years. He is interested in true stories rather than ghost stories. All in all, worth the money if you take the time to read what you can. We would come back on a future vacation. Not all museums have doll houses and expensive boring things. This one gets the job done.
