Unlike any other haunted house
I don't think I've ever been to something like this! It's more than JUST a haunted house. The trail might be the coolest part. I can't think of anywhere else in Chicagoland that has an outdoor part that is part of the attraction and not just a waiting area full of actors. I don't even know where to begin with the house itself. It's GORGEOUS! You really have to see it for yourself, no description I give would do it justice. The costumes and make up were brilliant, I *did* notice there was...I'm pretty sure, no blood. It's all "darkness" at HellsGate, which is brilliant for people who may be a little put off by all the violence in so many haunts these days. The actors were phenomenal. They really kept the energy up and moved things along without making us feel rushed. Not everyone in our group is easily scared but everyone absolutely was entertained and had a blast! They even have concessions before and after the house. A couple food trucks and a beer garden. There was even a witch themed 5 min escape room for guests t play!
