Did You Know Illinois Has One Amusement Park That is Open For Year-Round Halloween Fun?
The spooky fun will soon be done once the last trick-or-treater knocks on our door, but it doesn't have to be! Did you know there's a Halloween-themed amusement park open year-round in Illinois?
Family-Friendly Halloween Fun in Illinois
Illinois has a plethora of haunted fun up for grabs during the month of October, but sometimes all that spookiness is a bit too much for younger kids. So, why not take them to a place that's a good 'haunted', and where you can have a little Halloween fun at any time of the year?
Haunted Trails in Burbank, Illinois
Thanks to onlyinyourstate.com, I was today years old when I learned there is a Halloween-themed amusement park in the Chicagoland area that is open year-round AND family-friendly. It's called, Haunted Trails, and it features all the fun your family expects on a great day out. Just mix Chuck E. Cheese with Volcano Falls, mix in some carnival rides and a haunted theme, and you've got Haunted Trails Burbank.
Go-Karts? Yup, they've got them.
A 'Monsters Tomb' Game Room? Of course!
Spooky mini-golf and batting cages? Oh heck, yes!
To fully experience all the spooky fun Haunted Trails in Burbank has to offer, you have to go in the spring or summer because that's when all the outdoor attractions are running, but your family can still have a blast there in the winter too!
Haunted Trails has a massive game room, laser tag, and even a restaurant where your family can get fueled up for even more fun.
Haunted Trails in Burbank, Illinois (there is also another location in Joliet), is open Monday through Thursday, from 12 to 9 p.m., and from 12 - 10 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. (Joliet location may have different hours).
If your family is heading into the Chicagoland area soon, a trip to Haunted Trails Family Entertainment Center should definitely be on the list. Just beware, the spooky factor gets cranked up a few notches in October, and it's not too late to experience it!
