Morton Grove, IL, October 22, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- The crew at Fear City Haunted House are ready for their patrons to be out celebrating Halloween as their "Halloweekend" event approaches. Halloween has become more than one night of trick or treating as more people of all ages participate in a "fun-filled scare" this time of year.
Attractions like haunted schools, mazes, jails and of course, houses, are a growing entertainment venue with one goal in mind; to thrill, scare and entertain their visitors. Fear City Chicago, like many, is a seasonal businesses. Once using just volunteers with no theatrical experience, the level of acting and technical sophistication has continued to grow over the years.
According to Wikipedia, haunted attractions in the United States bring in an estimate $300–500 million annually with some drawing as much as 400,000 visitors. Growth in the "Haunt Industry" has raised the bar on technology with more refined special effects along with detailed make up and costumes reaching the quality and standards of Hollywood productions. Fear City's owners' backgrounds fit in with this trend as Chuck Grendys - President of Big City Sets (which has built sets for Motion Pictures, Television and Commercials) along with Jim Lichon (an Emmy-award winner from Oprah's Harpo Studios) came together with their mutual love for haunted houses to build Fear City.
Productions of both "Fear City 2013" and "Fables Studios Carnivale" will be running from October 23-27 with the last four days October 30-31 and November 1-2 from 7:30 pm to 11:00 pm (and Fridays & Saturdays to 12 midnight) at Fear City, 8240 Austin Avenue, Morton Grove, IL 60053.
