I don't think most haunted houses are appropriate for children. But some of them have a childrens walk thru. They are usually earlier in the day. Check the web sites.

I came here to drink some beer and kick some ass. And it looks like we are all out of beer.

I went last year and was impressed

Oh yeah and I didn't wait that long because I went early enough in the season and there were no lines

That's sorta what I figured, but my daughter doesn't scare too easily and she likes this kinda stuff. I've never been there so I don't know what would be inappropriate for kids in general other than the standard fear factor. Usually the kids appropriate stuff doesn't scare anybody but the 3 year olds. But I haven't been to one of these in awhile and don't know what to expect.

Walk down North avenue in Melrose Park after dark. It is free, and twice as scary.

Last year I waited in line for like 2 hours in the freezing cold rain. And then I wanted 2 hours of my life back.

dood if she craps her pants then it had to be one awsome experiance.

Willard: When I was home after my first tour, it was worse. I'd wake up and there'd be nothing. I hardly said a word to my wife, until I said "yes" to a divorce. When I was here, I wanted to be there; when I was there, all I could think of was getting back into the jungle.

Ok.... I'm going to be nice about this. My Ex owns this haunted house.

Honestly it is NOT for anyone under 15. There are some pretty graphic scenes within....

The right way is not always the popular and easy way. Standing for right when it is unpopular is a true test of moral character

I went to Statesville haunted house in Crest Hill last year. It was pretty good. They had a nice set up. But it was kind of expensive. Something like 20 or 25 bucks per person. And another 20 bucks to skip to the front of the line. Skipping to the front was worth it. I didn't have to stand in line for 2 hours with punk ass teenagers.

I came here to drink some beer and kick some ass. And it looks like we are all out of beer.

Gotcha. She's pretty tough, but I don't want to scar her for life. Thanks.
