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 and 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 in Chicago will be returning from the grave this weekend with a new, scary-as-hell exhibit entitled Deadly Reflections.
“Mirror mirror on the wall, who’s the deadliest of them all,” the haunted house questions on their website. “In the early 20th century, a nomadic Mary searched far and wide for the legendary Mirror of Viitor that possessed the power of knowledge, wealth and riches to those who peer. One night she discovers the legendary artifact and takes one gaze. Unbeknownst to the vain and greedy Mary, the mirror only rewarded those with kind spirits and instead trapped the rotten and evil souls. The mirror broke and consumed her leaving nothing but traces of blood. Bloody Mary’s rage was too intense to contain and to this day, her unrested spirit manifests itself throughout the mirrors with a deadly reflection ready to consume your soul.”
Intrigued? Due to the circumstances, the haunted house is leveling up their safety precautions to ensure that guests are safe (even if they are scared to death). The house will limit capacity, mandate proper face masks to all guests and employees, as well as test them with regular temperature screenings. Proper signage will also be displayed throughout the house with strict social distancing being enforced between groups. Also, in an effort to limit touching of personal items, only clear bags and clutches under 4.5″ x 6.5″ will be allowed. For more details on their safety policies, visit their website.
Tickets are now available starting at $19.99 for general admission. Fast passes can be procured for an extra $10, while you can skip the line entirely for an extra $20.
