All-New Haunted House: Joining forces with The House of Creeps, the carnival is transforming Wintrust Field, home of the Schaumburg Boomers baseball team, into a spooktacular haunted house. Tickets for the haunted house are $17.50 per person, when purchased online, $20 at the door, and includes access to the new VIP: Very Insane Person, Bar and lounge, located on the second floor of Wintrust Stadium in the “Schaumburg Club.” VIP hosts a full-service bar and invites guests to socialize in the eerie lounge with other haunted-housers, before making their way through The House of Creeps. VIP bar requires a haunted house ticket to enter. House of Creeps is open during carnival hours October 20 – 22, 27-29, and as a special treat, is also open October 30 and 31. Tickets for The House of Creeps are encouraged to be purchased ahead of time online.
Costumes, Crafts + Trick-or-Treating: Those bringing children to the carnival will be pleased to learn that Trick-or-Treat will again be hosted by all vendors each day of the carnival. Children will be provided with a special trick-or-treat monster-lantern bag and can collect goodies from each vendor. Additionally, families are encouraged to stop by the face painting booth and crafts tent to participate in free “make and take” kids crafts, such as DIY Halloween mason jar luminaries, coloring books and more. Costumes are also encouraged, and a costume contest is hosted each night of the carnival, which is free for all to participate.
Food & Beverage: Foodies attending the Halloween carnival will be thrilled to indulge in seasonal treats, including popcorn, cotton candy, caramel apples, corn dogs, hot dogs, polish sausage, nachos, and funnel cakes with a variety of toppings. Additionally, Hell’s BBQ restaurant and Rainbow Cone will be onsite serving savory and sweet treats both weekends. The carnival will also host a standard plaza bar, serving beer and seltzers for those 21+ years and older.
