One Halloween event that is sure to bring the people in is The Fear Haunted House at Navy Pier in Chicago. Of course it’s taking place at Navy Pier and it is an adult-themed haunted-house experience. The adventure is described as a captain capturing several creepy prisoners such as a werewolf, a creepy clown, along with vampires, monsters and a host of others. You get to walk through the haunted house and take in all of the horror and prisoners that are inside. The tickets cost $12-$20 dollars. The event takes place from October 24 at 7 p.m., until October 30. You can also go online to check out some more dates and times as well. It you and your stomach are not up for the horror, you can also enjoy the lights on version of the event taking place on certain weekend days.
If you want something that the whole family can enjoy and you’re interested in theatre, then the Click, Clack, Boo! A Tricky Treat Halloween play might be for you. This event is priced at $15 a ticket and you have plenty of time to get tickets for this event. The event takes place from October 24 at 11 a.m. until November 24. The play is about how various animals are in trouble because Farmer Brown will not allow them to celebrate Halloween. This event is surely something that the whole family, especially the children, will really enjoy.
This event takes place in Naperville, IL. This is called the Massacre Haunted House and 3D Factory. This event cost $20-$35 and it allows groups up to 6-7 people each. You get to travel through 35 haunting and frightening rooms in the building, plus you also have the option to view the attraction in 3D for an additional cost. The event takes place from October 24 at 7 p.m. until November 2. Sure to be a lot of fun for everyone!
If you’re not up to spending that much money for an event, then Sonny Acres will be open from October 25 at 7 p.m. until October 27. It’s only $5 and it’s open to people from 12 years and up. You have the opportunity to go inside the haunted barn and gain some Halloween spirit.
If none of those excite you, then there’s nothing wrong with nostalgia. Trick or treating is still a viable option for people and dressing up as well, although it wouldn’t be the best option for an adult. There will surely be parties to celebrate Halloween as well. So, there are plenty of options out there, especially in Chicago, as always!
