DOWNTOWN — THE FEAR Haunted House — which sits on the east end of Navy Pier — is the only mega haunted house within the city limits.

And mega haunt it does.

Through 18 rooms and two different houses, visitors come across every scare tactic in the book — bloodied zombies, massive spiders, creepy clowns and, of course, live actors dressed up in terrifyingly real costumes.

For a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to pull off mega scares night after night, watch the video.

THE FEAR is open now through Halloween night at Navy Pier. Tickets cost $20. A kid-friendly, lights on haunted house is open during the day.
