The legendary haunted house is back from the grave.
Looking for a real thrill this Halloween season? The world-famous 13th Floor Haunted House has reopened to the public to add some fuel to your nightmares!
Remember when haunted houses were simply makeshift stages at your neighbor’s? Some of the parents would string up a few cotton cobwebs, black curtains, and maybe one of the dads would dress up as a vampire and do that one laugh? Well, those days are long gone. Not only is the world itself a more terrifying place to be, but haunted houses have gone to hell and back to scare the absolute bejesus out of you.
Rated as one of the Top 5 Haunted Houses in the U.S.A. by USA Today, 13th Floor Haunted House Chicago has officially returned from the grave for its terrifying ninth season in Chicagoland and its most intense haunted house experience yet.
Set amongst forty-thousand square feet of fun at 5050 River Road in Schiller Park near the Rosemont entertainment district, the new site features two all-new, scary-as-hell exhibits entitled Outcast Carnival and All Hallows Eve that reportedly takes the fear-inducing experience to levels that 13th Floor has never gone to before.
The first of these experiences, Outcast Carnival, places guests in the territory of a troupe of rabid circus performers. The story goes that after a failed carnival went bankrupt, the sideshow performers were shunned by society and took to the sewers for shelter. Now, after years of no interaction with the outside world, the performers have become rabid and feed on anything that wanders into their domain.
At All Hallows Eve, the second 13th Floor Chicago experience, guests will encounter a cursed group of undead Trick or Treaters. Every year these lost souls “rise from their shallow graves on Halloween in search of blood, guts, and candy! As the fall spirit infects others, their number grows.”
Open on select nights through November 5, 2022, admission into both shows is included in one ticket which are now available starting at $19.99 for general admission on weekdays. Fast passes can be procured for an extra $10, while you can skip the line entirely for an extra $20.
Guests will also be able to partake in mini escape games or enjoy onsite cocktails and beer from Hala Kahiki Tiki Bar & Lounge and Short Fuse Brewing Company. As with previous seasons, there will be plenty of thrills, frights, a carnival-like midway of games, photo opportunities, foods, and beverages.
13th Floor Haunted House is located at 5050 River Rd., Schiller Park, IL 60176. Tickets and more information can be found at 13thfloorchicago.com.
