13th Floor Chicago and The Old Joliet Haunted Prison Haunted Houses both opened to the public on Friday, September 24, from 7:30 pm to 11 pm. The Old Joliet Haunted Prison opened Saturday, September 25, from 7 pm to 11 pm.
This weekend was highly anticipated, as it marked the 2021 opening season for the brand-new location of 13th Floor Chicago haunted house in Schiller Park, and the all-new haunted house The Old Joliet Haunted Prison in Joliet. Both attractions have returned for a terrifying 8th season!
The new location also includes two new haunted attractions, Bad Blood and The Spirit of Halloween, in one setting at 5050 River Road in Schiller Park. The new spot also features a carnival-like midway of games, photo opportunities, food, and beverages, just down the street from the Rosemont entertainment district.
The brand new Old Joliet Haunted Prison is guaranteed to give you pure Halloween frights, as it’s Chicagoland’s first and only haunted house inside a real abandoned prison. The Old Joliet Haunted Prison is located at 401 Woodruff Road in Joliet, having been closed since 2002. Now, the grounds and interior of the prison are transformed into a breathtaking haunted house with two attractions, The Forsaken and Ghost Chamber, all for the price of one ticket!
