From zombie parades and costume contests to haunted houses and hayrides (to haunted anything!), the Halloween season casts its spell and awakens our inner ghouls and goblins. As part of FrightQuest -- a MapQuest series on spooky destinations and activities -- here are three options to celebrate Halloween in Wisconsin that are sure to be a scream.

Wisconsin Fear Grounds
Wisconsins Fear Grounds, voted the No. 1 haunted house in America by Haunted Attraction Magazine, offers three terrifying experiences. In Morgan's Manor, witch Morgana and her sisters roam the halls -- and they don't like visitors. The horror continues on the grounds of the homestead at Torment, the torture chamber, and Unstable, the manor's horse stables. This one-stop night of mayhem runs throughout October on weekends. Ticket prices vary, depending on attractions and times.

Green Bay Fear
Green Bay Fear brings back the old-school haunted house. The spooky attraction includes the renovated Shawano Manor, where fictional owner Jaden West was said to have been found brutally murdered in 1894. The remains of his mansion were moved from Lake Shawano to its present location in 2000. Green Bay Fear is open through the month of October with an admission of $15 or the "RIP" admission of $25, which includes skipping the line, hot chocolate and live-band entertainment.

Schuster's Playtime Farm/Dark Nights
Schuster's Playtime Farm offers a wide range of family-oriented Halloween fun. For teens and adults, the farm presents a hayride into the haunted forest. For younger Halloween monsters, an evening stroll through a corn maze is a less spooky experience. Families can call ahead and reserve a bonfire for the night. Dark Nights is open throughout October and prices vary depending on activities.
