For years it has stood alone as an eerie reminder of the past, beckoning those who dare to explore. Many have claimed to have seen visions of the spirits who have never left, or heard the screams of the trapped and tortured souls within. Are the walls of this abandoned prison actually keeping us out, or keeping them in?

This year, the gates will finally open. Come see for yourself, as Thirteenth Floor presents The Old Joliet Haunted Prison. More info coming soon.

There are a lot of attractions in the Lockport area from Statesville to Hells Gate. They each offer …show more their own style of haunted attractions. Joliet haunted prison has yet to really capture its own style. From the beginning it offers the cool exterior of the prison itself. One can imagine the history that has gone on in the building. However the layout for customers to walk through seems to have a lack of outside actors to really keep the immersion. I counted 2 outside actors that were active and many more security that were in plain cloths. As for it being on Thursday I can imagine that staff might be a little low for this time of week. For going inside the attraction itself, it was a little confusing with wide open areas that had little actors or detail. Except of one thing…FOG! There was a ton of fog to help set the mood but I found myself walking inside the set of the movie The Mist. In all seriousness it was an aggressive level of fog that should be used to highlight the experience and have more actors or sets in its place. In the major areas of the attraction it was very condensed just like a prison cell block would be like. In that aspect the prison itself does excel. However navigation through the sets seemed to be very confusing. The cell block that serves as the main area of the haunt is divided up into 2 sections. Where once you walk in you are able to have a top down view of the room on both sides before going down a set of stairs into the facade itself. The props themselves are a mix between mechanical and house made. A lot of the technology seems really cool on first glance but after little bit seemed to be very clustering and tricks the senses in thinking, loud = scary. Overall the main experience was a nice walkthrough of a new haunt that has so much potential to grow and develop its own style. I look forward for The Old Joliet Prison being in of the great Lockport haunts that you got out of your way for. However as of now it’s still got a little more work to do.
