Just as was the case in 2016, guests start out at the Lockport Metra parking lot before boarding a bus to be taken down a dark road.

From there, they are dropped off in what could be described as a secluded parking lot before having to embark down a dim path into the woods. Along the way, they will encounter multiple terrors while crossing a cemetery before finally escaping and coming upon a 1920s-era mansion.

Then the real fun — or horrors — begin.
