The paranormal research facility within the Old Joliet Prison has unleashed a twisted evil upon the living world, the Abominations.

Cursed with a terrible hunger, they cannot help but feast upon the innocent souls that they capture, condemning everyone to eternal suffering. Beware, for the Abominations have returned.

I had a great time here! It’s unlike any place I’ve been to before, walking throughout the prison and passing by the old cells was really something.

This haunted house rocks. It was scare after scare and exceptionally set up. Very much worth the wait. They also have a gift shop, bar and food concessions. Do your self a favor and make this your next stop for Halloween.

One of the most unique haunted experiences in a real prison. Creepy waiting in line as your behind prison walls but not inside it yet with the guard tower flashing search lights down at you.
