Located in the basement of the MB Financial Park parking garage (right off I-294), this haunt features 20,000 square feet of horror in more than 35 rooms. It was designed by Joseph and Mike Pantano, the evil masterminds behind Addison’s critically-acclaimed Disturbia: Torment of Fears. They tinker with the formula every year, which means this year’s version will be scarier than ever.
The remodeled Disturbia features a multi-level underground sewer with dark and ominous waters, along with a swamp filled with frightening creatures. The exit has also been updated, so expect some scary stuff at the end of the line. As always, Disturbia is immersive and interactive, featuring a combination of actors and high-tech special effects in high-quality settings. You’ll find killer clowns, a super-creepy atmosphere, plenty of attention to detail, new characters, and so much more.
The indoor haunt is open 9/30-10/2, 10/7-10/9, 10/14-10/16, 10/20-10/23, 10/26-10/31, and 11/4-11/5. Parking is free with validation. Tickets cost $25 per person on Sundays-Thursdays, and $30 on Fridays and Saturdays. On busy nights, VIP tickets can be worth it because they allow you skip the line, which has been known to last for hours. These cost $40 per person.

Rosemont offers up some horror-filled movie screenings for the month as well; on 10/17-10/18, you can visit Muvico next door for screenings of “The Exorcist” at 11:30 p.m., and on 10/24-10/25 it’ll present 40th anniversary showings of “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” at 11:30 p.m. Once you’ve had the pants scared off you (figuratively, of course), you can enjoy the restaurants and nightlife in MB Financial Park at Rosemont. Get a dose of laughter to temper the scares at Zanies Comedy Club, or enjoy some well-deserved drinks at the Five Roses Pub, Adobe Gila’s, or The Sugar Factory.
