What You'll Get
Due to the large number of ghosts they can hold, haunted houses are consistently scarier than cursed sleeping bags, possessed lean-tos, and ectoplasmic studio apartments. Enter accursed architecture with today's Groupon: for $17, you get a VIP Pass to Midnight Massacre, a haunted house located inside Odyssey Fun World in Naperville. This Groupon is good for front-of-the-line VIP access any night Thursday through Sunday, from October 7 to October 30.
Boasting more than 12,000 square feet of frights, the hotel-themed Midnight Massacre swirls with scares for kids, tweens, teens, and their elders. Eerie elements include a range of animatronic apparitions, dozens of living, breathing actor-monsters, and a slew of mysterious mazes designed to challenge even the sharpest crayon costume in the trick-or-treating pod. In terms of height fright, the characters and special effects are appropriate for most children with a modest amount of bravery. With autumn settling into the cracks of the world's foundation, come enjoy seasonal fun throughout most of October. Halloween night is off limits, however, as Wolfman has a conflicting waxing appointment.
Before and after meandering through the haunted halls, fun seekers can partake in on-site Odyssey Fun World action, including arcade games and indoor amusement rides such as bumper cars and the FX simulator (none are included with this Groupon). With a family-friendly cap of four Groupons per customer, today’s deal is a prime chance for parents to prove once and for all that they only shuddered during Ghost Dad because they thought Dr. Huxtable ran out of Jell-O.
Please be aware that the Midnight Massacre employs strobe lights, loud noises, and fog machines which have been known to cause epileptic seizures.

About Massacre Haunted House
Ghastly horrors prowl Massacre Haunted House in search of new victims and fresh screams. Inside, 75 actors in full makeup startle wary explorers navigating more than 60 rooms strewn with gruesome scenes that would strike fear into the heart of any adult, teen, or amnesiac zombie. Unsettling mazes and living nightmares stand between brave souls and the exit, where a second haunt—Freak Show 3D—awaits to pull them deeper into the madness. Where the haunted house may have turned hairs white with the help of live actors, the factory coaxes screams with 3D special effects made possible with specialized glasses.
