Statesville Haunted Prison has been widely considered one of Illinois’ best haunted houses for almost 20 years. With 150 live actors attacking you at every step, 40 horrifically detailed rooms, and an average time of 40-50 minutes required to get through its oppressive walls, their visitors are always guaranteed a hauntingly good time.

Critics have said that their success is due to cutting-edge effects, attention to detail, authentic actors, and the fact that their audience feels like they are actually in a horror movie.
