Northwest Indiana Haunted House
4700 Central Ave
Lake Station, IN 46405
2020 PRESS RELEASE
Haunted Hills Hospital returns for another season of terror! In 2019, Haunted Hills Hospital was rated Indiana’s #1 haunted house and one of the Top 3 Haunted Attractions in America by The Scare Factor. Holding the distinction of being in the top-ten haunted attractions in Chicagoland for the last three years by Haunted House Chicago, Haunted Hills is ready to bring the fear to Chicagoland
Growing from a simple yard haunt to one of the top attractions in Chicagoland, Haunted Hills Hospital is over 12,000 sq. feet and features more than 50 rooms that are fully detailed from top to bottom. Creative Director Justin Hill stated “It’s like walking into a movie. We theme and detail every inch, from our floors to our ceilings. You never know where we will come out and get-cha.” When asked what it feels like to travel through the show, Hill replied “We’ve created a show that is entirely immersive, interactive, and absolutely terrifying. The attraction is like nothing you have seen, with the scares being turned up tenfold."
Haunted Hills offers a show that they describe as “aggressive, intense, and like a rock concert.” This year not only approximately half of the haunt updated, but the outside is changing as well. “We are making this an all night event by including not only our five-minute escape room experience, but also adding Axe throwing,” said Stefen Hutchins, Haunted Hills Hospital Marketing Director. Hate the typical hour or more wait to get in? Haunted Hills is doing away with the typical Conga-line type wait for a more up to date approach. They are implementing a virtual queue line experience. Much like large scale amusement parks, you will be signed into the virtual queue which allows you explore the Midway and experience all that Haunted Hills Hospital has to offer while you wait. “You'll be able to enjoy "The Chamber" 5 minute Escape Room, our new "Asylum" Axe Throwing, the ‘Hills Hollow: Condemned’ scare zone area with a live DJ, on Fridays and Saturdays, photo ops and scare actors to get you ready for what waits inside. There will also be Food and Souvenir Vendors offering various products to our guests,” said Hutchins.
In light of COVID-19, Haunted Hills Hospital is implementing new procedures to protect volunteers and guests. They will be requiring guests to wear masks in the Haunted House as well as in the Midway area when social distancing cannot be possible. There will be hand sanitizing stations for guest use in different areas of the complex and they will be taking the temperatures of all volunteers upon entering the Haunted House each day of operation. The haunt will also be thoroughly cleaned before each night’s operations, and intermittent cleanings will happen throughout each evening. You will only be going through with your group and groups will not be larger then six at a time.
