Dark Chambers Haunted Attraction
October 19–21, 26–29, and 31
6–9:30 PM @ Y Camp (11764 JFK Rd)
The haunting of Dubuque returns to the forest for the first time in almost a decade. But it’s not the Jaycees anyone. Instead, the man who brought us the fantastic freights of Dark Chambers in the Port of Dubuque is taking the fear bark to where it was famously housed for so long, at the Dubuque Y Camp on JFK Road.
Expect a ton of scares both inside and out, as the entire upper level of the lodge is closed-in and built-out with a half dozen amazingly set-up room scenes created to freak you out. Each of these rooms is unique and so incredibly clever. The big building on the site with a slew of killer scares is actually a completely built from scratch just for the haunt. This totally temporary building may be the biggest building at the camp. It’s crazy! Look for new scares and insane experiences that you’ve never seen before.
Consider that the amazing indoor spaces are just a part of a larger outdoor haunt and you quickly see that this year’s attraction is considerably larger and longer than it ever have been before. Yes, you will be going back into the woods this year. I fact you’ll go in there twice. There’s also no guarantee that the scars won’t start until you hand over your tickets at the entrance. There’s a line along a gravel path from the ticket booth to the start of the haunt and as as far as they are concerned, it’s “game on” and soon as you buy their ticket”. So beware! Being outdoors means they can finally have chainsaws in the haunt again too!
Ticket sales must end by 9:30 to send people through by 10 PM, so plan that into your visit. So to the teens who like two come out and go through late, you’ll need to move you schedule ahead an hour.
If you’ve always wanted to know what it’s like from the other side of the scare, this is your chance. Younger than 14 will need to have adults with them. Older kids just need an adult consent form.
Resurrecting the Haunted Forest and combining it with all the scares you love, dark turns and terrifying sights that will get your heart pounding is what organizer Trent Johnson is bringing to life. Grab your friends and anyone else you think will help you make it out and come test your mortality inside the Chambers.
The Forest is open Oct. 19–21, 26–29, NOT on the 30th and open again for the last day on Halloween, Oct. 31. There is a light fright version of the forest from 6 to 6:30 p.m. each night for $10. Tickets are $15 for everyone for the full fright which runs 6:30–9:30 p.m. You can also get a fast pass to the front of the line for $25.
