Greetings mortals and morsels! It's finally Halloween time and that means Team Gregula gets to start Haunted Housing again. Our first stop is a fang-mily favorite that we have been coming to for the past few years - 13th Floor Haunted House Chicago.
13th Floor Haunted House Chicago is located in Melrose Park, IL just west of city limits. The haunt entrance is kind of hard to find off the street as the sign is a bit dark and not readily visible from the main street. GPS is a good idea in this case. I believe there is paid parking but we usually park next door in the shopping center lot for free. It's close and they don't tow, so no worries.
The lines weren't super long, but there were a good amount of people in attendance that night, ready to get their scare on. There is a large indoor waiting area at the haunt and it was appreciated since it was cold and damp out. Plenty of ghoulish undead creatures provided wait entertainment with a creepy nun lurking around to frighten all.
13th Floor Haunted House Chicago has two themed areas: The Possession and Dead End District - The Cell. When we walked inside we were pleasantly surprised to see some changes to the rooms which had been overly familiar in the past. The sets were still the fantastic movie quality that is expected. My favorite scene with the church is still there with satanic priest, nuns and monks which was super spooky..Dead End District changed dramatically with an apocalypse style scenes and no more clowns!
The actors were on point with their jump scares and Team Gregula had an exciting time.
