St. Patrick's Revenge: Curse of the Celtic Witch

On March 17, 1819, a woman by the name of Abigael McDougan was burned at the stake by the early settlers of Hills Hollow, due to their belief that she was a witch. As she burned, she put a curse on the town of Hills Hollow that she would return. Time passed and the community forgot about Abigael and her curse. Hills Hospital was eventually built on the ancient grave yard that she was buried in. The evil energy from the torture of the patients has awakened her spirit and she has returned to seek her vengeance and has brought the demons of hell with her! The only thing stopping her from destroying Hills Hollow and the rest of the world is a group of Voodoo Shaman who are trying to send her back to hell. Travel through Haunted Hills Hospital and help them stop Abigael!

Thursday, June 6

D.E.A.D. Rising
https://www.deadrisinghauntedhouse.com
Dead Rising Haunted House is an old school, in-your-face haunt. They build all of their own props and sets for a uniquely terrifying experience.

Midnight Terror Haunted House
http://midnightterrorhauntedhouse.com
Midnight Terror Haunted House is a company with 20 years experience in the haunted house & entertainment industries. Driven by passion, MTHH has discovered what it takes to create something completely original, using “old school” tactics with a balance of “new school” technology, and extreme focus on making Midnight Terror an “actor driven” show! Midnight Terror’s expansive playground progresses throughout 26,000 square feet, more rooms than they can count, and actors in every spot they can fit. Explore the twists, turns, and tight spaces of “Factory of Malum”, which leads into the theatrics and special effects of “Black Oak Grove”. To finish off the Night Fear, you’ll then have to tread through “Chainsaw Alley”, an ending you won’t see coming!

The Massacre
http://www.fearthemassacre.com
Work up your nerves and step into one of the scariest attractions in the Midwest, The Massacre Haunted House and Fear Freakshow 3D Haunted House. Newly renovated every year and ready to deliver the scares, The Massacre offers over 20,000+ sq. ft. of sheer nightmares for your enjoyment. This custom built haunted house allows visitors to walk through in small groups of six to seven and is designed to give mature audiences the scare of their lives! Focusing on fear and fright, this haunted labyrinth dishes up over 60 rooms of pure terror where over 100 ghastly clad actors are waiting to scare and delight. Frightening mazes, eerie animatronics and beyond are ready to fill your night with chills and thrills.

Basement of the Dead
https://basementofthedead.com
In the late 1920’s, Walker Laundry opened at 42 West New York St. and became Aurora’s largest laundry Company. Around 1945 Imus Kilya was working there as maintenance engineer. His son Al came to work as his assistant in 1960. Heat for the building and steam for the presses was supplied by a coal fired boiler installed when the building was built. Al and Imus continually complained that it needed to be replaced, but management wouldn’t spend the money. In 1964 the boiler exploded maiming and scalding Al and Imus. They never returned to work and rumor was they had vowed to get even.

Under the streets and building were sewer lines and tunnels well known to Al and Imus. A year or so after the explosion people from the laundry started to disappear and body parts were found in the river near the drainage pipes. Al and Imus were suspected but never found. The laundry eventually closed and the basement was never used again. Businesses have come and gone but nobody stays. Basement Of The Dead is proof that Al & Imus still exist and have made this basement their home.. The mutilation and horror you will witness is so shocking, you’ll wish you never entered.

SO COME WALK THE BASEMENT OF AL & IMUS KILYA. IF YOU’VE GOT THE GUTS!

Basement of the Dead haunted house has been top rated by BuzzFeed, HauntedHouseChicago.com, Hauntworld.com, the Chicago Tribune & more!


Friday Night, June 7

HellsGate Haunted House

Massacre Haunted House transforms into a ‘Christmas Nightmare’

  • Posted : December 21st, 2018
  • No Comments

Instead of Christmas cheer, the crew over at Massacre Haunted house are spreading some holiday fear.  For the 6th year in a row Massacre will open for a special Christmas themed haunted house the weekend before Christmas.

The set designers have transformed the entire facility to resemble your sweetest holiday memories and makeup artists along with the special effects team have reworked your favorite Christmas characters into your worst nightmare

This bone chilling, Christmas experience will of course feature a Santa, however he’s not the right jolly old man most people picture. Visitors who loved getting scared during Halloween can get scared all over again this holiday season.

Walk through over 30,000 Square Feet of Christmas gone wrong, where a wicked Santa and all his demented helpers haunt the halls. Cackling elves emerge from the walls and Santa’s sinister “ho ho ho” rings through the air, chasing visions of sugar plums right out of visitor’s heads and replacing them with scenes of horror.

Christmas Nightmare is Friday December 21st and Saturday December 22nd from 7pm to 10pm.

Massacre Haunted House
299 Montgomery Road, Montgomery, IL 60538
