Fear City Chicago Haunted House Holding “Valentine’s Zombie Massacre Bash”Fear City Chicago is holding an especially appropriate horror-filled Valentine’s Weekend event on Saturday February 15, 2014 from 7 pm to 12 midnight featuring music, dancing, cash bar and laser-tag zombie games.
What’s more romantic than killing zombies with the one you love? For those wanting an exciting alternative to the mundane red roses and chocolates of the traditional Valentine’s Weekend events, the crew at Fear City Chicago Haunted House are swinging open their gates and hosting a special event featuring locally popular disc jockey (DJ Scarecro), refreshments and heart-stopping laser tag games.
Fear City Chicago Haunted House and Battle Royale Laser Tag are teaming up to offer a new experience for the adventurous this coming Valentine’s Day on Saturday, February 15 from 7pm to 12 midnight. Open to those over 21, tickets can be purchased online at www.fearcitychicago.com for just $18 per person (or $20 at the door). Those wanting to have some fun can blast away their winter blues by playing laser tag in the halls of Chicagoland’s award-winning haunted house with a cast of creepy zombies. In the lobby, the music of DJ Scarecro will keep people dancing and entertained. A full cash bar will be available for those looking for another way to warm up their blood on a cold winter’s night.
Fear City Haunted House is conveniently located near Chicago’s northwest side at 8240 North Austin Avenue (between Oakton Street and Lincoln Avenue) in Morton Grove. There is plenty of free parking and the venue is easily reachable by public transportation and is just minutes off the Eden’s Expressway Dempster Street West Exit. The event will take place in the huge lobby of the haunted house with the laser tag games taking guests into the back alleys and hallways of Fear City, enjoyed by so many during Halloween.
Chuck Grendys said “There are so many people looking for an alternative way to celebrate Valentine’s Day that we had to put our creative juices to work and offer something new this February” and Jim Lichon added “People interested in haunted houses and attractions are crying out for this event so we had to listen.”
