Owaneco Scare

230 N Church Street
Owaneco, IL 62555

Owaneco Scare is a nonprofit, volunteer built haunted house in Owaneco that started in 2007 with nothing more than a group of friends and whatever materials we could find to make it work.... We were only open 1 night but we were hooked on all that screaming!!!

Today our demented staff turns an ordinary gymnasium into a truly sinister location, sure to haunt your dreams for years to come. Almost everything in our haunt is made in-house from props to costumes and every year our sets get bigger and crazier.

We pride ourselves on giving you the best scares in the area. Money raised is used to fill the shelves of our local food pantry and for repairs and renovations to the Owaneco Gym. Everyone is guaranteed to have a frightfully good time. So gather your friends and your courage and come check us out. IF YOU DARE......
