GREEN BAY, Wis. -- "Gags the Clown" terrified Northeast Wisconsin, and the entire country, last year when pictures of him popped up on social media.

Now, Gags is back for a good cause.

"Gags' Nightmare," a new haunted experience, opened this week in downtown Green Bay.

The experience is put on by The Production Farm, an organization that helps youth in foster care and gives them opportunities to succeed.

After seeing Gags the Clown, leaders at The Production Farm asked film creator Adam Krause if he'd be willing to partner for a "haunted experience." That's when the idea for the Gags' Nightmare production took shape.

"It's not your typical I'm going to go there and I'm going to be chased around by a chainsaw or fog machines or somebody popping out," said organizer Carolyn Kuether. "You literally go through, walk through and experience Gags the Clown's mind."

The production is similar to a haunted house, but is different in some way every time you walk through, Kuether explained.

The kids and teens involved in The Production Farm were responsible for coming up with the ideas, creating the scenes and doing the marketing. Some are even acting in the production.

Gag's Nightmare is open Wednesdays-Sundays at 417 Pine Street through Halloween from 7-11 p.m. each night. Tickets start at $20 per person.

All proceeds go to The Production Farm.
