  • Laser X - Chicago
    Through curls of fog lit by ultraviolet light, players find vantage points to take aim at their opponents in Lazer X's bilevel, 6,500-square-foot arena. Wearing computerized vests, players blast each other with phasers while avoiding distractions caused by pulsing strobe lights, animatronic creatures, and up-tempo music that begs them to stop and do the macarena. After the game, vests tally up points, and players can review their scores on a printout that will also detail the hits they made and received. Alternately, patrons can follow-up games with a trip to the arcade where they can keep their trigger fingers in tip-top condition.

  • Rob Zombie's Great American Nightmare - Chicago
    When Rob Zombie set out to create the Great American Nightmare, he knew exactly where to go for ideas: his own movies. He and his spooky-smart team of technical wizards created three haunted houses, each inspired by one of the director's terrifying cinematic works. Haunt of 1,000 Corpses brings to life the horrors of exploitation film House of 1,000 Corpses. Thrill-seekers wander through a recreation of the movie's "Museum of Monsters & Madmen" before hopping on the Murder Ride, which puts them nose to nose with notorious serial killers. Inspired by Zombie's 2012 indie film Lords of Salem, Lords of Salem In Total Blackout toys with claustrophobia, fear of the dark, and the heightening of one's senses while wandering a maze. Lastly, guests don Chromadepth glasses to explore the world of animated horror-comedy romp El Superbeasto, immersing themselves in a world of vivid images, bawdy humor, and surprises that lurk around every technicolor corner. Between attractions, or while waiting for nerves to settle, guests can wander up and down the Bloody Boulevard and take in other spooky sights. Each evening, the Great American Nightmare also hosts adrenaline-boosting musical acts.

  • Hair Razor Haunted Scenes
    For three weekends each October, wicked surgeons, rotting corpses, and malevolent clowns haunt the corridors of St. Thecla Parish’s basement. A team of designers, actors, and effects artists with more than 30 years of haunted-house experience designs each petrifying scene, with a scare level catered to guests aged 12 and older. Numerous exits let terrified visitors escape, while No Scare Days invite costumed kids aged 11 and younger to feast on candy and wander the lit house during the daytime, when it’s not full of frightening creatures or owls holding staring contests. Proceeds from Hair Razor Haunted Scenes help fund and sustain St. Thecla Parish.
