13th Floor Haunted House – Melrose Park

13th Floor Haunted House may be a bit of a drive, but the scares are more than worth it. USA Today voted them, “Top 5 Most Terrifying Haunted Houses in the USA.” The haunted house is based on the legend of the thirteenth floor. Many buildings choose to omit having a thirteenth floor, because it is believed to be unlucky and bring forth bad luck. Some buildings are rumored to hide the thirteenth floor in the basement, and to let secrets and monsters live within…. 13th Floor Haunted House promises to give you access to one of these unprecedented, cursed spaces. Enter at your own risk.

13th Floor Haunted House Chicago is located at 1940 George Street, Melrose Park, Chicago, IL  60160. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit their website here.

Scream Scene Haunted House – Skokie

Scream Scene Haunted House is located in the abandoned Skokie Water Playground—enough said right there. Once the summer season leaves the water playground empty, the chainsaw maniacs and insane clowns come out to play (picture this: an entire maze filled with clowns). If that sounds like the scene for you, then you’re going to love this haunted house.

Scream Scene Haunted House is located at 4701 Oakton Street, Skokie, IL 60076. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit their website here
