Official Opinions: Where to celebrate the spooky season

Looking for something spooky to do this weekend? Stitely‘s got you covered. From historic ghost tours to haunted houses for all ages, here are a few events where one can definitely find a way to give himself a good scare and get in the Halloween spirit!

There are plenty of haunted tours happening around the city this month, but a few caught our attention here at Stitely. The Chicago Hauntings Haunted City tour is the tour to go on if you want to discover Chicago’s most active supernatural spots. This 2.5 hour haunted tour starts at 7pm or 10pm and takes you around the city by bus. This tour is unique in the fact that they let you get off the bus to get a closer look at anything out of the ordinary. So dive deep into the supernatural with the whole family or be a bold solo act; just remember to bring your cameras to document any ghostly sightings. You can purchase your tickets by phone or online for $33 for adults, $30 for vets and elderly guests, and $25 for kids under 12.

If seeing Chicago’s spooky spots doesn’t scare you, then test your iron will at The Music Box Theater’s Music Box of Horrors on October 13-14. The Music Box is a historic theater built in 1929 that presents a yearly 24-hour movie marathon of classic horror films. If you are a fearless moviegoer this is the place to be. Get your tickets for the marathon for $35 a person now or go on the day of the show for $40.

Not into movie marathons? Fear not, the Spirit Ships and Haunted Harbors tour will still leave chills going down your spine. Leaving at 8:30 pm the Tall Ship Windy will set sail into the dark misty waters of Lake Michigan.  Away from the city sounds you can uncover the mystery, history, and legend of past ships and the deep waters below.  Tickets are available online; adult tickets are $30, young adults are $25, kids are $10 and babies are only a $1. Grab a blanket and settle down for some scary tales of the Chicago waters.

If supernatural spirits, horror films, and old sailing tales aren’t scary enough for you, then I would recommend hitting up the following VERY SCARY, award-winning haunted houses in the Chicago area:

Anna, In the Darkness: The Basement-Dream Theatre, 556 W. 18th Street, Chicago, IL 60616
The Fear Haunted House, 600 E. Grand Avenue, Chicago, IL, 60611
Chronicles Of The Cursed-500 W. Grand Avenue, Chicago, IL, 60654
Disturbia-Torment of Fears is located on 800 W. Lake Street, Addison, IL 60101
Eleventh Hour-434 E. Devon Avenue, Elk Grove, IL 60007
Statesville Haunted Prison And City Of The Dead, 17250 S. Weber Road, Crest Hill, IL, 60441

Hopefully this list will allow you to have a fun-filled season and still allow you to sleep at night (if that’s what you want to do). Enjoy!
