Halloween is a time that many people look forward to each year. It is a reason to dress up in ridiculous costumes, get together with friends and enjoy themselves. For others, it is a time for family– and obtaining an absurd amount of candy in the traditional form of trick or treat.

Then, there is the most unique of all the celebrators– the ones that prefer to spend their nights running from nightmares and screaming their lungs out.

Chicago Haunted Houses spare no expenses to get the most fright out of their targets. Phenomenal sets are created in places like old asylums and basements. Some companies even go so big that they create these horror houses all across the nation, but the majority on this list are sacred to the Chicago area.

Some of them are a little trek from the city, but they are completely worth it. Make an event out of these. Round up some friends for an epic road trip to terror. The best part will be the ride home, your screams will turn into laughter after you recap what just happened. Childish screams are not always something to be ashamed of.
