Description

Venture to the darkest corners of the city, from sites of major tragedies like the Eastland disaster and the Iroquois Theater Fire to the blood-soaked grounds of the Fort Dearborn and St. Valentine’s Day Massacres, on this fully-narrated haunted bus tour of Chicago. Begin at the Congress Plaza Hotel, known as one of the most haunted locations in the city. Explore the haunting locations that inspired popular films like 'Ghostbusters' and 'Rosemary’s Baby', and meet Chicago’s most famous phantom, “Resurrection Mary”. From there, journey to various intriguing sites, such as the Lincoln Park Zoo, built on the ashes of the Great Chicago Fire, the John Hancock Building, an architectural marvel believed to harness otherworldly forces due to its trapezoidal shape. See the St. Valentine's Day Massacre Site, a grim reminder of America's most notorious mob killing. Then, visit the Nederland Theatre, the site of the tragic Iroquois Theater fire, and the Eastland Disaster Site, where the overloaded vessel capsized in 1915, leading to the loss of 844 lives. Next, head to the Couch Tomb, the last remaining marked grave from the Chicago cemetery destroyed in the Great Chicago Fire, and Hull House, a settlement for immigrants where folklore tells of a “Devil baby” being born. Continue to the Biograph Theater, where gangster John Dillinger met his end. Delve deep into the city's haunted history and use your cameras and recorders, as evidence of the supernatural that has been captured by many.
