Eerily, we creep through the shadows and darkness to hear some of Chicago's true ghost stories and view the site where some of Chicago's most appalling disasters took place.
We begin this Haunted Segway Tour of Chicago at our location and glide our segways through the dark paths of the park. We make a stop at Buckingham Fountain, situated between Lake Michigan and Michigan Avenue, to view it in all its lighted glory. Here your guide will share stories of Al Capone's haunted yacht, and the famous Chicago gangster's affiliation with a notorious Michigan Avenue hotel–allegedly the most haunted hotel in the city. You will learn about the creepy things that have happened in the hotel, such as a number of unexplainable deaths and the self playing piano in the grand ballroom.
After we explore the park, this guided ghost tour of Chicago will continue through the streets of downtown Chicago to Death Alley, the site of the Iroquois theatre fire where over 600 Chicagoans' perished in a single day. You'll feel how noticeably cooler it is in this creepy alley. We will then glide along the Chicago River to view the site of the Eastland Disaster, the worst maritime disaster in the Chicago history that claimed the lives of 800 people in 1915. Perhaps you will hear the splashing of the water if you have a good ear. Our Chicago segways will then glide us along the River Walk to see the former site of Fort Dearborn, and learn about the haunting surrounding the Fort Dearborn Massacre. This haunted tour of Chicago is a fun thing to do in Chicago in a creepy sort of way!
