Full description
If you are looking for fun things to do in Chicago at night, then this haunted Segway tour of the Windy City’s ghoulish murders and gruesome disasters, ghastly gangsters and ghostly tails is just for you. You will glide eerily around the streets escorted by an expert Segway guide. Creep through the shadows to hear true stories of ghosts and view the sites where some of Chicago's most appalling tragedies took place. You will sneak down to Lake Michigan for a look at Al Capone's haunted yacht, and pass by a Michigan Avenue hotel, alleged to be the most haunted in the city. Get the shivers as you hear accounts of the many unexplainable deaths and tales of the self-playing piano. Continue through the dark streets of downtown Chicago to Death Alley, site of the Iroquois Theatre fire where over 600 Chicagoans perished in a single day. Glide along the Chicago River to view the site of the worst maritime disaster in the city’s history, when 800 people perished. Then slope along the River Walk to see the site of the Fort Dearborn Massacre. If you haven’t got the shivers by now, then you must be made of stone. Perhaps you are even one of the walking dead…

    Haunted Chicago Segway Tour

    After a brief practice session on the segways (which I needed quite badly it turns out!) we set out after dark on a tour of Chicago's demons! Dan was great fun and stuffed full of info! Obviously being on segways it isn't the most chilling of ghost tours but never the less a hoot! Reccommended

    Not scary but really fun!

    Not scary but fun with loads of interesting stories and anecdotes. Very good value for a segway tour and frankly a relief to be rolling around in the evening after a day of trecking through the streets in the sweltering heat! Paul was an exemplary guide -- entertaining, helpful, informative, and full of tips to do around town for the duration of your stay.

    Chicago ghost tour

    Very enjoyable right from the beginning with the hilarious instructional video! The guide was great and the other guys in our tour group were nice too, we even hung out with some of them afterwards. Very nice way to see Chicago after dark and hear some funny ghost stories instead of the normal sight-seeing. Probably best for people who are in town for a week or so rather than just a couple of days.

    Great option for touring the city with teenagers

    The views of the city at night were fantastic! It’s a great way to tour the city with teenagers. There’s not a lot that interests them when it comes to hanging out with parents but this is a win!
