We are doing something a little different for this year’s Chicago Frights Haunt Tours. Several haunts in the area are planning to be open during the weekend, so rather than limit the tours we are promoting any haunt that wants to open. You will buy your tickets through the haunt and have to find your own way there, but it is a great opportunity to see some great haunts in the off season.
If you own a haunt in Chicagoland and want to open for the weekend, let us know so we can add you to the list.
Evil Intentions Haunted House: Descensus Averno
Catch a special sneak peek of what’s in store for visitors this Halloween, as Evil Intentions opens its doors for one night only. Voted one of the area’s top haunts in 2013, 2014 and 2015 by HauntedHouseChicago.com, HauntedIllinois.com, and the Horror Tourers. Evil Intentions Haunted House blends intense scares and interactive storytelling with the real paranormal history of the building. The site of the former Elgin Casket Company, the building has a true history of murder, disappearances, and occult activities; one never knows going through the attraction when they’ll encounter an actor or one of the real spirits still residing in the dusty halls and dark, foreboding rooms. If you’re looking for frights that will leave you terrified for days, Evil Intentions Haunted House is where you need to come. Open Friday, July 29 only.
