Just a reminder that HauntedHouseChicago.com is COMPLETELY NEW for 2014 – rebuilt from the ground up in the spring of this year. That means that, if you haven’t created a NEW account and listed your haunted house, attraction or event IN 2014, you NEED TO DO THAT NOW! The 2013 listings DID NOT carry forward to the new site (it wasn’t possible to do, and anyway, this way we weed out the ones that are no longer in operation).
So what are you waiting for? List yourself now – it’s free!
“This is going to be the hardest thing we’ve ever done…”

Our Best Year Yet!
Are you ready to be scared? I mean REALLY scared? Read on…
This year we start out innocently enough. A pizza party at Gulliver’s Restaurant and Bar. Oh, and did we mention the pizza, soft drinks, salad and some appetizers are free? All you pay for is the cash bar in case you need some “liquid courage” before we leave.
Then we are on the bus and ready to go for a night of screams, laughs and the best time you will have all year.
Our first stop on this gruesome ride is Zombie Containment, brought to us by the same twisted minds that conceived Statesville Haunted Prison.
For those who survive, it’s off to 13th Floor, a world famous haunt with 2 attractions now in Chicagoland. And with a new audience, I’m sure they will be pulling out all the stops.
Last, for those who can handle it we are heading to Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare. This is a mega production, 3 attraction haunt. If the other two haunts weren’t enough, let one of the Masters of Horror scare the daylights out of you.
If you’ve made it this far, it’s back to Gulliver’s to chat with some old and some new friends.
The Chicago Haunt Tour 2014 takes place Saturday, Chicago 4th @ 5:00 pm. For full details, tickets and information go to http://wp2.chicagohaunttour.com/
