Time Out says

Regularly ranked as one of the top haunted houses in Illinois by Halloween connoisseurs, Basement of the Dead has been providing seasonal scares since 2000 in a 120-year-old building in downtown Aurora. Explore the dark, sinister confines to encounter demented doctors and nurses, creepy dolls, and a cult. Admission also includes entry to Shattered 3D, a circus-themed space lit by blacklights and filled with mesmerizing art and creepy clowns. If you want to avoid jump scares, visit during the Night of Isolation Wednesdays Oct 6-20, when you can explore the scenes without the actors. For an extra spooky experience, go on closing day when the lights are all out.
