If the weather at the start of the tour is predicted to be above 40 degrees F, winds are less than 12 mph, and any rain or snow is indicated as "steady light" or "sporadic moderate", the tour will be held. Distant thunder and lightning is usually OK (even preferred!). Any night not meeting these weather conditions may be subject to rescheduling. BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR EMAIL AFTER 5:00 PM FOR ANY URGENT NOTICES FROM HAUNTED HOMETOWNS.
1) Check the Calendar for a list of available tour dates.
2) Click on the date/time of the tour you want to book.
3) Fill out the reservation information. You'll be asked to give your Promotional Code at time of billing. If your Code is correct, it will zero out your payment.
4) Or you may also simply call our Friendly Spirits at 1-630-978-7033.
You can buy your tickets either by calling 1-630-978-7033 anytime, or on our secure online ticket reservations system hosted by the friendly spirits at Peek.com. We accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express.
We accept your voucher after it expires (we're all about expired things), but only for the amount you paid for it; the promotional value has expired. For example, if you pay $20 for a voucher for 2 tickets worth $40, and it's used after the expiration date, the original $20 is always good for 1 ticket...but you'll have to pay full price for a second ticket since the promotion has expired.
Tickets often sell out, so it is to your benefit to purchase/reserve tickets in advance. You can purchase last-minute tickets at the door, but be warned! We may not have an EMF ghost meter available for you to use; no discount cards are accepted at the door; you'll have to pay in cash only; and last but not least, since we have no way of knowing that you'd be coming, you won't be notified if we have to cancel the ghost tour due to weather.
Yes; cash to tip your Ghost Host, bug spray, comfy walking shoes, and weather-appropriate clothing since you'll be outside in the elements for hours. You may also wish to bring bottled water and a camera. ELGIN CEMETERY TOUR GUESTS MUST BRING AT LEAST ONE WORKING FLASHLIGHT.
Yes, at the moment we can only offer tours in English, but you are welcome to arrange for an interpreter. Please note that if you are accompanied by an interpreter, they will need a full priced ticket.
Yes! Private tours are available for groups of 20+, but you must make arrangements at least 30 days in advance. If not, we cannot guarantee that your party will be private. A lot of our groups, however, find that it's a lot more fun to join and meet other guests on a public tour. To inquire about booking a private tour, please click here...
Due to uncertain health, "America's Ghost Storyteller" is not always up to hosting...but she'll sure try to give as many tours as she can.
Yes! Gift certificates are available for online purchase and make great last-second gifts for family and friends. To buy, email Diane@HauntedHometowns.com and provide a phone number where she can contact you.
We will notify you via email by 5:00 PM if the tour has been canceled due to a severe weather forecast or other unavoidable causes. You will be allowed to reschedule for another date at no extra cost. Be sure to check the email address you initially gave us when booking your tickets.
Yes! Tour guests have photographed unexplainable anomalies during our cemetery tour, and we encourage them to post it on our Facebook page (Facebook.com/HauntedHometowns) for a chance to win a free walking tour. It would be absolutely worth it to bring a camera!
Gratuities to your Ghost Host are NOT included in the ticket price. Cash tips are gratefully accepted since your Ghost Host works hard to ensure your evening is enjoyable. Tips are a major part of their compensation...and a wise precaution to ensure you're not left behind in a haunted cemetery.
Tours can be rescheduled without penalty if made 24 hrs. before the ghost tour. Simply call the Friendly Spirits at 1-630-978-7033.
