High Winds, Waves Close Floating Haunted House at Navy Pier

A floating haunted house at Navy Pier has been shut down after violent waves and high winds damaged the barge.

The Zombie Containment Haunted House was closed Friday afternoon after officials said the barge was damaged and sinking.

Spokesman Nick Shields said wind “twisted” the barge and the event has been canceled for the weekend. He said refunds would be offered to those who purchased tickets.

According to Navy Pier’s website, the barge is Chicago’s only floating haunted house.

Navy Pier officials also said the Ferris wheel, Grand Ballroom, East End Plaza, cruises and Chicago's Masquerade Ball + Nightmare at Lakeview Terrace will also be closed due to "extreme weather and waves."

Those who purchased tickets for the masquerade ball are being asked to email info@chitownevents.com.
