Haunted Forest

Thursday, October 8, 2020 - 6:00pm

October 9 & 10, 2020  |  6:30-9:30pm (last wagon ride is at 9pm)

Come out to this spectacular Halloween event. See if you can make it through the twists and turns of our life-size haunted maze! With ghouls and goblins galore, this maze is not for the faint of heart. Other activities include bounce houses, a hayride through Central Park’s haunted forest, candy in a haystack, a pumpkin patch, crafts, tattoos, and more! Tickets required for activities vary from 0-5, and are sold at the gate. Snacks and refreshments available for purchase.

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.

Special Maze Preview Night | Thursday, October 8, 2020 | 4-6pm  | $5 for unlimited maze walks.

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.
