The story behind 13th Floor Haunted House has a rich and terrifying history!

“The ancient feud between vampires and Werewolves rages within the shadows of today’s city streets. For years, humans have been held secret from the battling creatures, but not anymore. A recent uprising has turned the city into a living nightmare of snarling fangs, spilled blood, and absolute chaos.
A ruthless pack of werewolves on wheels known as the Lycan MC clash with the savage mob of skate punk vampires, the Coffin Crew. Anyone caught between the warring factions is subject to the carnage that awaits.
With summers end, as the leaves turn brown it is said the veil between the living and the dead is at its thinnest. The witch of the woods has cast her spell to summon the spirits of the underworld to cross over and assimilate into form using various objects found among town including decorations used for celebrating Halloween.
Dazed within the spell cast upon them, the Witch commands her army of crops and flesh to seek revenge on the people that have casted her out.”

The terrifying consistency throughout Disturbia Haunted House is very impressive and earned it rave reviews from thrill seeking visitors. 

“The actors were able to carry out their attacks with precision and were hungry for their next victims. The sets were also well-executed. Between the actors and the sets, it was additionally very apparent how much time and effort had been put into making the show.”

“Let’s face it, you play a role in how scared you get. If you come to have a good time and enjoy yourself, the more you’ll enjoy our haunt (or anything else for that matter). We provide the most terrifying haunted attraction in Illinois with a great variety of scares. We have had people, including many adults, that left through emergency exits and refused to finish and others who run through screaming and laughing the whole way through. After all, that’s what we are here for…scaring people while having fun!”
