The haunting season has come to Chicago. For those who dare brave the dark, twisting tunnels, Disturbia: Screams in the Park has returned to scare visitors for the 2015 Halloween season. From October 2 through November 1, 2015, this daunting maze of terror will be taunting visitors who brave the journey.
“Disturbia: Screams in the Park” is a product of Joseph and Mike Pantano. From the moment four guests enter the corridor and take a seat in the chair, the fright fest of enormous proportions begins. The dark (if not sometimes pitch black) corridors lead guests to a myriad of crazy, scary characters. From insane clowns to creepy hillbillies and countless other scary characters in between, the experience has guests relieved to emerge from the tunnels unscathed.
For the 2015 season, Disturbia: Screams in the Park features 20,000 square feet of terror and more than 35 rooms. The journey features various rooms, tunnels, and paths. While not trying to give away all the secrets of the haunted experience, this event is quite scary. The creators recommend guests be 13 and older and parental discretion is advised. Additionally, guests who are claustrophobic may have difficulty with some scenes/areas. This event is definitely not for those guests who are easily scared.
One aspect that differentiates this haunted experience is the interactive nature. While no guest will ever be physically touched, characters do talk, taunt and potentially impeded your progress through the experience. In one scene, guests cannot avoid being near or looking at one of the insane clowns. The interactive nature exacerbates the scare factor.
