General Info

Update regarding Haunted Trails reopening: 

We take the safety and health of our Guests and Staff as our #1 priority. Currently only our Game Room, Go-Karts (with the exception of Eagle Speedway), Miniature Golf and Batting Cages are open 12 pm to 9 pm (weather permitting) with the plan to expand when state safety guidelines allow. The Restaurant is now open with outdoor & indoor limited seating from 12 pm to 8 pm. 

We are following the safety and sanitation guidelines of the CDC and State of Illinois Phase 4 Guidelines for re-opening, which require that we accommodate a limited number of guests and operate at a reduced capacity to ensure everyone’s safety. Your patience and understanding is appreciated as we work through these necessary adjustments. 

To ensure that our Guests have a positive and fun visit, we are temporarily implementing the following:
  • Face masks are highly recommended for outdoor and mandatory indoor for guests over the age of 2 and in certain lines for attractions.
  • Social Distancing MUST be observed whenever possible. Please observe the floor markings we have provided to maintain proper distancing.
  • Families Must Stay together to assure social distancing is maintained (except when on attraction rides). Groups with a maximum of 10 people must also stay together.
  • Hand sanitation guidelines should be maintained. Hand sanitizer stations for your use are placed throughout the park and dining room tables have been removed to meet the 6 ft. social distancing guidelines.
  • Restaurant seating is available for dining guests only due to limited capacity and social distancing. There is a 30 minute limit from the time your food arrives. No exceptions.

We are implementing special sanitation policies on all games, go-karts, golf and batting equipment as well as extra sanitation of our high touch areas and restrooms.

Unfortunately Covid-19 brings some inconvenience. If we all work together, we will get through this pandemic. Our Staff will do everything they can to make your visit a positive experience. 

Thank you for your support and patronage! We look forward to you and your family having a super good time at Haunted Trails.
