Come see the Dark Side of The House on the Rock 2016...


If you have ever wondered if the dolls come alive at night or if you find the displays troubling during the day, wait until you see them in the dark.  Your nightmares will become real.

You will stroll down the walkway of the macabre and see the carousel in a whole new light.  You will travel through the Devil's throat and wander through the mysterious maze before escaping to be greeted by the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

The Dark Side 2014!

Here is the latest need-to-know for The Dark Side, which starts in a little over one month!



THE DARK SIDE AT THE HOUSE ON THE ROCK
Seven Nights to Experience the Strange and the Spooky

Unsettling to some during the day, wait until you journey through The House on the Rock at night!

The House on the Rock presents “The Dark Side,” a decidedly different experience at the world-famous Wisconsin Attraction. The Dark Side Halloween event runs seven nights: October 10, 11, 17, 18, 24, 25 and 31, 2014 from 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm (last admittance 9:00 pm) at 5754 Highway 23, Spring Green, Wisconsin.

The nightmarish transformation will have eyes rolling as brave guests journey down the Devil's throat. This year, encounter new haunting tableaus of terror, from to horrific clowns to zombie bridegrooms. Back again are the Haunted Doll Carousel and the fiendishly discombobulating Dark Maze.

Thank you Dark Side Guests! And now something completely different...

Thanks to everyone who came to the first Dark Side at The House on the Rock! We received really good feedback and will use your customer comments to make our next Dark Side better than ever.

Before we completely leave the Dark Side here are a few final images from this year:

And now, as they say, on to something completely different. Leave it to the magic of the House on the Rock to go from frighteningly spooky to a nostalgic holiday atmosphere, but that is in fact what has happened. The transformation is amazing and we are ready to welcome you to Christmas at The House on the Rock!


White twinkle lights add to the festive glow, and holiday music plays throughout. Our enormous collection of Santa's of all shapes and sizes (6,000 and counting) is spread throughout the Gatehouse, Original House, Infinity Room, Alex Jordan Center, Mill House, Streets of Yesterday, Heritage of the Sea, Tribute to Nostalgia, Music of Yesterday, Spirit of Aviation and the Carousel.

The Attractions is open for the Christmas tour Thursday through Monday from 9am-5pm, closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve Day and Christmas Day.  The Christmas Tour ends January 6, 2013.
