To some, it is Halloween that is the most wonderful time of the year. And there is good enough reason for this line of thinking, after all: there are so many different ways to celebrate the spookiest season, particularly if you live in Chicago.
If you love Halloween (or are trying to get into the spirit), then consider adding these events to your list of things to do this month.
Basement of the Dead Haunted House
Basement of the Dead Haunted House has the distinction of having topped Buzzfeed’s list of “Haunted Houses Around the World That’ll Freak You Out,” which is well worth the visit alone if you have a strong enough constitution. Because freaking you out is an ever-evolving process, Basement of the Dead this year has added a zombie laser tag experience—“Zombie Containment”—and the XCAPE Z-51 competitive mobile escape game. If you’re not too frightened, visit Basement of the Dead at https://basementofthedead.com.
Richardson Adventure Farm
Since 1840, Richardson Adventure Farm has been the place for families to spend an autumn afternoon together. Come for the chance to pick out a great gourd in the pumpkin patch and traipse through the world’s largest corn maze, stay for the 700-foot zipline and live pig races. You can plan out your trip ahead of time by visiting http://richardsonadventurefarm.com/#adventurefarm.
Chicago Hauntings Ghost Tour
Called “One of the Top Ten Ghost Tours in America” by Haunted America Tours, Chicago Hauntings Ghost Tour is an all-ages appropriate event that has been featured everywhere from A&E to The Travel Channel. Join Ursula Bielski and her team as they walk you through allegedly haunted spots like the site of the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre and the Hull House over a fun, informative, and frightening 2.5-hour tour.

There is plenty more to do in and around Chicago this Halloween season, so don’t waste any time. Just make sure that whatever you do, if you are looking to scare up savings on a new car, truck, or SUV, that you reach out to the boils and ghouls at Packey Webb Ford.
