Kick off your Halloween festivities at The Fear Haunted House. Located at Chicago's famous Navy Pier, The Fear has been voted one of Chicago's top 13 Haunted Houses by Haunted House Chicago. Not ready to be stalked by the ghouls and zombies lurking in dark corners at this highly acclaimed attraction? Feel free to experience The Fear(less) during its Lights On/Low Scare Saturdays and Sundays from Noon until 5 p.m..
Haunted houses not your thing? Navy Pier offers many other family friendly activities throughout the entire month of October! Get a zombie makeover and listen to the Zombie Zydeco Band. Practice your aim for the Zombie Apocalypse in the Zombie Hunt Shootout. Trick-or-treat on Halloween weekend along the pier, hit the water on one of Seadog Chicago's Haunted Tours, and take in the Halloween fireworks show. Visit the Chicago Children's Museum while at the pier to create your own costume for the Monster Mash Dance Bash or the Navy Pier costume contest. The possibilities are endless.
