Screams with your Teams!

The 13th Floor is in Melrose Park, promises enough blood, gore, and darkness to keep you up at night and wondering what the heck was that.
The 13th Floor is a chain of haunted houses all across the nation, which means they have to be doing something right to have expanded and keep coming back.  There are two houses that you get into for $25, $35 with a VIP Pass for a shorter line/quicker entry into the houses. Although, as it gets closer to Halloween, Saturday prices go up by $5.  Once mid-October hits, they're open Wednesday-Sunday which means you could go after practice one day, post game, or on a Sunday Funday.
I have yet to check out this attraction, but it will be on my list for this year.
