Heap's Haunted Corn MAZE in Minooka, Illinois - 302 Views
Legend has it that....... 150 years ago the Heap Family purchased a Healthy plot of farm land. It has been told, that the previous owner was a peculiar eccentric old chap who grew several acres of corn to trade with local farmers. No one really knows why but eventually , he started to shred everything he found. He shredded belongings, his home, and everything in his estate. He flat out went insane. The town folks started calling him "The Shredder". One dark foggy night, "The Shredder" came up missing under a full moon. The following day a search party went looking for him but never found the old man. The one thing they did find was, shredded corn stalks from boundary line to boundary line. They also discovered blood soaked tracks leading into one of his fields that disappeared into the rows of corn. He was never seen again. Now on full moons, the old man can be seen walking in and out of the cornfield. The dark shadowy figure comes out to feed, and can at times be heard laughing insanely with the unknown forces that lie within the boundaries of his corn. Some people have witnessed odd looking lights looming within the corn. The family dog refuses to go near the corn. And in the fall when the family harvests their corn crop, they always get this ere feeling that someone is watching and lingering in the corn. At times the earth cracks open for no reason at all, or out in the Middle of the cornfield lies a shredded row of corn.

Illinois Haunted Houses


Illinois Haunted House Attractions


All across America, there are many types of haunted attractions and Halloween attractions like haunted houses, corn mazes, haunted hayrides, haunted trails, and more, but on the grandest scale, there are the SCREAMPARKS.  Screamparks are large, outdoor locations offering several haunted attractions under one venue.  One such Screampark is located in St. Louis, Missouri or Southern Illinois called Creepyworld.

Illinois Haunted House Creepy World

Creepyworld is one of America’s best and biggest Screamparks offering a haunted hayride, haunted mansion, vampire themed graveyard, and a military themed haunt called Silo-X.  HauntWorld Magazine ranks Creepyworld as one of the TOP 10 best haunted Screamparks in America for many reasons.  Typically, Screampark style attractions are not as elaborate and detailed as a permanent, indoor haunted house, but that’s not the case with Creepyworld. Haunted House in Illinois Raven Mansion Creepyworld has wicked set design, amazing detail, established actors and terrifying scares.  Creepyworld is MASSIVE with FOUR major haunted attractions including (1) Tombstone Haunted Hayride, (2) Dominion of the Vampire, (3) Ravens Mansion, and (4) the main attraction, Silo-X.  Once you enter the eerie gates of Creepyworld, you are greeted by The Ghoul Band, a comical music group of the dead, banging out hit after hit and telling Halloween jokes too.  The Ghoul Band immediately puts you in the Halloween mood at Creepyworld.

From there, the terror mounts as you stand before the massive entrance to Ravens Mansion.  The look alone could make you cower as you peer up at its terrifying façade standing 25 feet tall, dwarfing all below.  Once you enter Ravens Mansion, be prepare to scream inside one of the most elaborate haunted houses ever.  Ravens Mansion is an indoor/outdoor haunted attraction.  As you go through each detailed room of this haunted mansion, you’ll eventually exit into the back garden with an old run-down green house and tool shed stalked by a horrific, hillbilly grounds keeper.

If you survive Ravens Mansion, you’ll enter the second attraction: Dominion of the Vampire.  Dominion of the Vampire is a very elaborate indoor/outdoor attraction which features sophisticated animations and Hollywood quality props, sets, and scenes.  Start by traveling through a creepy graveyard where zombies are lurking at every turn.  Next, you come upon a wicked swamp where water cannons and flame machines shoot up into the air within feet of you.  Finally, you enter the Vampire castle filled with crazed demons and blood-sucking vampire brides. 

Next, prepare yourself for Tombstone Haunted Hayride, a quarter mile long adventure through the old dead west.  Tombstone is filled with zombie gunslingers and long dead corpses looking for revenge inside this old town of Tombstone.  Tombstone Haunted Hayride features pyrotechnics, awesome sets, psychotic animations and dead cowboys at every turn.  At the Tombstone Haunted Hayride, there will be no cheesy sets or dumb skits, just heart-pounding terror from start to finish.

After the first three attractions, you’ll probably be tired from running in fear but try to salvage your energy, because there is still one massive-sized attraction to go…Silo-X.  Silo-X is a historic haunt.  It was the first ever franchised haunted house and at one point opened in over 12 markets across the country including Chicago, Dallas, Boston, Kansas City and many more.  Silo-X originally started in St. Louis over 15 years ago, and now it’s bigger and better than ever as one of the four attractions located inside Creepyworld Haunted ScreamPark.  Silo-X is the longest and THE SCARIEST attraction at Creepyworld.  Silo-X consists of a series of haunted mazes themed around an X-Files type military base with genetic mutations and hideous monsters everywhere.  Some paranormal experiments have gone awry and now danger lurks around every turn.  Once inside Silo-X prepare to be stalked and chased by savage chainsaw beasts, bloody monsters and more.

Haunted house illinois siloxCreepyworld is in every sense of the word a SCREAMPARK with several different levels of fun and fear for any Halloween thrill seeker.  If you ever find yourself in or near St. Louis, be sure to visit Creepyworld, but trust me it takes well over an hour to tour all four attractions inside Creepyworld. 

So where does Creepyworld rank among the elite haunted houses in America? 

Creepyworld is owned and operated by Halloween Productions, Inc., the same company which also owns and operates The Darkness Haunted House.  While CreepyWorld is an outdoor event, The Darkness is a 27,000 sq ft indoor attraction.  Generally, indoor attractions have better set-design because they can be worked on and updated year around.  The Darkness is one of HauntWorld’s favorite haunted houses due to the unmatched detail, set design, animations and crazed actors.  It’s really hard to create an outdoor attraction with the same level of detail and design as a top-rated indoor attraction like The Darkness.  However, there is no doubt that Creepyworld is every bit as detailed, every bit as elaborate, and in some ways better than any indoor haunted house we’ve seen.  We feel that most people looking for a good scream this October will find Creepyworld to be just what the doctor ordered.  Creepyworld ranks as one of our favorite (if not THE favorite) Screampark we’ve ever reviewed.  To learn more about Creepyworld, visit their website at  


Illinois Haunted House Tips

Illinois is brimming with continuous cornfields, newly constructed subdivisions, and the thriving metropolis known as Chicago (also commonly referred to as the Windy City) – but those aren’t the only things you’ll find in the Prairie State.  Illinois has a rich and colorful history, chock full of old ghost tales and horror stories that stem from areas and places in the state believed to be haunted.  And amid the endless farmlands and growing suburbs of Chicago, the state is also home to a number of chilling haunted houses, a favorite pastime of thrill-seekers.  Headed to one of the infamous Illinois haunted houses soon?  Check out these tips to ensure you have a fun and frightening time!

The weather in the Midwest during late fall is unpredictable and fickle at best.  Temperatures during the day may be pleasant and mild while they plunge well below freezing at night.  Precipitation, whether in the form of rain or snow is likely, so dress accordingly!

Speaking of clothing, make sure you wear clothes that are comfortable and allow you to freely move.  Considering you will likely be doing a lot of walking (or perhaps running?), it’s important that you wear shoes that are comfortable as well.  Dress warm, especially if you will be outdoors at night – a jacket or coat will keep you warm but can easily be taken off if you get too warm. 

Where to Go
While the state has a myriad of frightening haunted houses that can get your heart racing and adrenaline pumping, there are a few that stand out more than others, including The Darkness located near southern Illinois.  Known as one of the best and scariest haunted houses in the country, The Darkness has been featured on the Travel Channel and a handful of other programs.  Located in northern Illinois?  Check out the Statesville Haunted Prison located in Crest Hill near Chicago.  With its use of live actors, realistic Hollywood animations, and more, you’re bound to get the fright of your life!
