Since 2003, the Oak Brook Park District has transformed the pathways of Central Park and led thousands of innocent spectators through the most haunted corners of Oak Brook. The Haunted Forest event will once again feature a spectacularly spooky 10,000+ square foot haunted maze along with several new festive features. Parental discretion is advised for thrill seekers under 10 as music, light, fog, strobe lights and creepy characters will all be in close proximity in the maze. For those looking for a lighter dose of Halloween hijinks, Haunted Forest also features a pumpkin patch, face painting, fireside storytelling, candy in the haystack, a craft corner, and tractor pulled hayrides. Concessions will be available onsite for purchase.
Thursday night only! Bring your little thrill-seeker out to experience Oak Brook’s spectacular haunted maze! You can make your way through the maze as many times as you’d like, in the daylight! Scary scenes will be set up, but there will be no actors or spooky special effects. The maze walks will be the only activity available. All other features will open Friday night.

There was so much more to this event than I expected! First, it's affordable so don't go buying tons of tickets right away. The maze is only 5 tickets to get in, other activities are 1-4 tickets, and there are some free activities too! Don't buy more tickets than you need, you can always go back for more. The maze is big and challenging with just enough scare around the corners to make it fun. The "actors" are all volunteers from the local high schools and they did an incredible job. The gatekeeper let my 3 year old into the maze for free. He didn't make it past the first turn, when we came back to the entrance she pointed out that they had a free (SUPERVISED) little babysitting corner where he could stay while we went through. He colored with a few other kids for about 10-15 minutes as we made our way through the maze. The sound effects, lighting, and fog were just disorienting enough to add some thrill. At one point the maze broke out into a wooded path (spoiler alert: chainsaw). Once we got out, we headed to a cute pumpkin patch with the little guy, took a non-haunted hayride (the line was long for that one), bounced in the bounce house, and sat for a fun spooky fireside story. We are definitely going back this year.
