Your online source for Haunted Houses and everything Halloween in Illinois!

Site Sponsors Update - August 24, 2018's August pre-season update with information about website enhancements, haunted attraction help wanted listings and more!

Over the past several weeks, the staff of Haunted Illinois has been working hard to prepare for the upcoming Halloween season. We are excited to announce the following website updates

New Sidebar Menu
On our desktop site, we have replaced the old sidebar menu with a modern version, which is more compatible with newer browsers. At the top of the menu there is a bright green “Mobile Site” button, to make it easier for you to visit our mobile-friendly version of the site. The menu has also been streamlined, to make it easier to find the information you are looking for.

Halloween Countdown
Not sure how many days there are until Halloween? Our Halloween countdown has been re-enabled on the desktop and mobile versions of Haunted Illinois. The countdown is located near the top of the home page.

Haunted House Help Wanted
Want to work at a haunted house? Haunted Illinois has compiled a list of more than 25 haunted houses and Halloween events that are looking for volunteers and paid staff for their attractions this year.

Join Our Review Team
Haunted Illinois is looking for haunted attraction enthusiasts to add to its elite team of reviewers. Do you like haunted houses? Can you write well? Send an email to for more information about how you can be a member of our Official Review Team this year!

Submit Your Halloween Event
If you are running a Halloween-related event, now is the time to submit to our 2018 Halloween Event Directory. We recently reset the directory, removing all of the 2017 listings, so even if you have listed with us in the past you will need to submit your 2018 information if you want to be included in this year's directory.

Remember that our directory lists more than just Haunted Houses. If you run a Haunted House, Hayride, Haunted Trail, Home Haunt, Yard Display, Festival, Pumpkin Farm, Apple Orchard or other Halloween-related event, please send us your information today for FREE! If it’s a Halloween-related event in Illinois, we want to promote it! Just fill out the online form at the following link:

Stay tuned! We will send out more updates as the Halloween season approaches!

Happy Haunting,

Adam & Jennifer Drendel - Your online source for everything haunted in Illinois.
