Disturbia : Screams In The Park is a haunted house that I attend every year. Conveniently located in the lower level of the parking garage in Rosemont, just Northwest of Chicago, and within walking distance of other attractions such as Zanies Comedy Club, Muvico Movie Theaters, and many restaurants it puts itself in the right place for a evening out.
Upon walking up to the entrance located outside next to King’s Bowling Alley you are greeting with the giant entrance to Disturbia where you are then directed to take the elevator to the lower level of the parking garage. Once downstairs you enter a dimly lit room with a few animatronic things before going into a line where they have different horror films playing on a few screens to keep you entertained while waiting. Once you enter the haunt you are sat down in a room similar to a church and told the lure and rules before being rushed into the house in a unexpected manner.
Disturbia features a wide range of rooms including the “Sewer Of The Underworld”, the “House Of Victoria”; an old haunted house, the “Dark Swamp” and others. One thing I do like about this haunt is that even knowing that it is in a flat level the haunt makes it feel as if you are going to different levels as well as different elevations. You are thrown into various large set pieces each different than the one before it. Some do require you to crouch, bend, push through, and would cause a problem if you were claustrophobic.
My one complaint however is that I often found myself going through dark corridors with no actors almost making it seem like a transition from set piece to set piece. I just think that it happened too often and they could have done more then just had dark hallways to walk through. Some areas as well also could have had more actors in them as well. These however are minor setbacks.
Overall Disturbia as it does every year has managed to top itself from the previous year. Containing some very creative sets and scares it is very clear that the owners or Disturbia truly know what they are doing. I highly recommend this haunt.
