1. Why was this website created?
Back in the mid-1990's, we noticed that there really weren’t any haunted house websites that focused specifically on the state of Illinois. While there were a few national haunted house directories, we found that they didn’t have many Illinois listings and the listings that they did have, more often than not, had information that was old and out of date. HauntedIllinois.com was created, in order to provide visitors with current information about Halloween and Haunted Attractions throughout the state of Illinois.
Where is your haunted house located?
HauntedIllinois.com is not a haunted
house. No one involved with running the
website owns or is employed by a haunted attraction. This website
promotes all Halloween events within the state of Illinois. If you
have a question for a specific attraction, please contact them directly,
using the contact information in their event listing.
Is running this website your full time job?
No. The webmaster of
HauntedIllinois.com and support staff all have full time jobs that are
not Halloween-related. This website is run by a small team of Halloween enthusiasts and is
updated as time permits.
4. Where are
all of the ghost stories & supernatural / paranormal information?
Most of the content on this website is related to Halloween and the Haunted Attraction Industry. We do, however, have a small section of reviews related to real haunted places , as well as a links page dedicated to Paranormal Websites.
You can also find other websites with paranormal content by typing in a phrase like "illinois
paranormal" or "illinois supernatural" into the
Google search engine.
5. How do I
get my website added to one of your links pages?

hiring additional staff members.
