HellsGate Haunted HouseFor many years, the people of Chicagoland have been searching for a legendary haunted house. Rumors say it’s in a cemetery, it has a giant slide and it’s hidden out in a forest. And, they say, it’s so scary that it has a money back offer…

Zombie Army Productions has joined forces with Legacy Events to bring this legend back to life. Hidden deep in the woods, HellsGate Haunted House is a multi-level mansion filled with secret passages, giant slides, ghastly secrets, undead abominations, really nervous groundskeepers and a darkness that the gate can no longer contain! This is not just a haunted house, it’s an adventure!

This October, challenge yourself to a truly terrifying experience. Finding the mythical haunted house in the forest will now be possible; finding your way out, on the other hand…

And for those who are able to keep their wits about them while trapped in the dark, if you find the key, your ticket is free!
