Illinois has a plethora of haunted fun up for grabs during the month of October, but sometimes all that spookiness is a bit too much for younger kids. So, why not take them to a place that's a good 'haunted', and where you can have a little Halloween fun at any time of the year?

Haunted Trails in Burbank, Illinois

Thanks to onlyinyourstate.com, I was today years old when I learned there is a Halloween-themed amusement park in the Chicagoland area that is open year-round AND family-friendly. It's called, Haunted Trails, and it features all the fun your family expects on a great day out. Just mix Chuck E. Cheese with Volcano Falls and a haunted theme, and you've got Haunted Trails Burbank.

Go-Karts? Yup, they've got them.
