Designed to simulate the wreckage of a long-sunken pleasure cruiser, 13 Terrors transforms Theater on the Lake from a summertime theater venue to a scene of lakefront horrors. After a greeting from the ship’s ghostly passengers, visitors make their way through the confines of a claustrophobic room, around the twists and turns of a maze of mirrors, and past spooky ghouls in a dense forest scene, among other tests of courage. The haunted house is a product of the same creative team responsible for the Trail of Terror at Peterson Park. Free parking is available in the lot at Diversey Harbor.
Chicago Park District
In the spirit of the city motto, "Urbs in horto" (City in a Garden), Chicago established its first parks in 1869. The Chicago Park District as it exists today was created in 1934 and holds sway over 8,200 acres of open space, including 31 beaches, 40 nature areas, and upward of 570 parks. But the park district provides access to more than just the green expanses of its outdoor domain; its facilities harbor the waxed hardwood of indoor basketball courts, the chlorinated splashes of swimming pools, and other features that facilitate active lifestyles. Park administrators offer athletic programming year round, as well as seasonal events such as autumn pumpkin patches and summer's Movies in the Park, part of the Chicago Park District’s Night Out in the Parks initiative, which features more than 750 citywide cultural and arts activities. The park district also oversees many local civic landmarks, including the iconic Buckingham Fountain.
