Egyptian Theatre: 135 N.2nd Street - DeKalb, IL

Amenti Haunted House


This attraction is one of the most talked about events in the DeKalb area every October. Over 3,000 people experience the horrors of Amenti each year. 2014 will be the 9th year that Amenti has been open and continues to grow and change every year.

Amenti is the Egyptian Goddess guarding the world of the dead. Within her gates lie the horrors of the Egyptian underworld. Terror after terror await those who dare to enter. But be careful, Amenti jealously guards her gates and assures that no one escapes.

This event takes place inside the historic Egyptian Theatre in downtown DeKalb, IL. The Egyptian Theatre is managed and operated by P.E.T. (Preservation of Egyptian Theatre, Inc.) a non-profit organization.

The proceeds from this event go towards the ongoing operations and building improvement of this historic landmark.

It is VERY unique to have a haunted house inside of a historic theatre that is still in use AND also has a number of ghosts inside year round!

The Amenti Haunted House features over 20 different scenes on 6 different levels.  Some of the themed areas include an Egyptian Tomb, a Voodoo House, Forest, Insane Asylum, Carnival, and many more surprises.
