Everyone visiting a Chicago hotel (or just stopping by the area) in October should think about visiting this local “haunted” attraction that guarantees thrills and chills for all of our BEST WESTERN Midway hotel guests. Toyota Park Bridgeview is a must-see tourist attraction in the Chicago area for concerts, sporting events and many other world-class shows, and the park’s Carn-Evil Haunted House is no exception. Located just 15 minutes away from our Midway hotel, the event is open from the 14th to the 31st, starting at 7pm nightly. The haunted house is located in Toyota Park’s VIP lot under the big top and features an eerie collection of ghouls and ghosts dedicated to helping you celebrate Halloween with some creepy fun. The haunted house (which has been running in different locations around Chicago since 1978) has perfected its form of, “audience participation theatre” and is guaranteed to give you the seasonal excitement you’re looking for!
Tickets to the event are $10.00 a person, but if you’re time is too precious to risk waiting in lines, you can jump ahead with a special Right in Pass (R.I.P) for $15.00. While weather in the area can be a concern in the Fall, you don’t have to worry about it in this case! While the waiting line for the event is outdoors, there is protection from the rain within the big top’s many tents so you can enjoy Chicago’s Halloween events regardless of the weather forecast.
If you have younger kids, the event isn’t recommended for children under 7 as they may find it a little too frightening, but, the park leaves that to the discretion of parents and they don’t charge for youngsters who feel up to the challenge. If you think you would like to give it a try, but are concerned it may not work out, there are convenient exits throughout the haunted house that a guide can escort you to at any time.
Sound like fun? Our Chicago hotel is conveniently located near the Chicago Midway International Airport and is an ideal location to stay if you’re in town for the night and are thinking about stopping by Toyota Park and the Carn-Evil.
