Ogren. Not only that, it's also in 3D! We simply had to check it out, and we're glad we did.

Ghoulson Family Reunion - Aurora, IL

Overall, Ghoulson Family Reunion is a cool setup that is not too scary, so it would be good for people with smaller children. If you look closely, you'll even see a skeleton in the passenger seat of the car in the driveway! The display's property is located in a cul de sac, and as such it can be very quiet there, which makes the entire setup all the more creepy, but not in your face scary. Haunt fans of all ages are sure to appreciate the mix of humorous and frightful on display here.

Spirits on Sproat Yard Display - Oak Lawn, IL

Our 2014 review of a really enjoyable yard display in Oak Lawn - Spirits on Sproat. If you like movie monsters, this is the place to go! This year marks the 10th anniversary of one of our favorite yard displays - Spirits on Sproat. Like many haunts we visit, this is one that has gown over the years to include more and more props and figures. In fact, this year the display has expanded to the point that it has moved from the front yard to the back yard, giving it more room to grow.
