We are a 100% volunteer organization, and the profits go to charity!

Boo Crew is a professional-level haunted house run 100% by volunteers, with all profits going to charity. Our goal each season is to create a unique experience that our customers will love, and fear.

We consistently rate high for scare factor, ambiance and characters who give 100% to their performance. Be prepared for anything, both in the house or while waiting in line, but you’ll still never guess where that next fright will come from.

Owned and operated by the Rochester Lions Club, our haunted house has raised a zombie hoard-load of money for the community since we first opened our doors in 2000. As an added benefit, it provides the perfect venue for community members from all over central Illinois to come together and work toward a common goal. Each night, more than 100 volunteers work at the haunted house. It warms a zombie’s heart to know we have so many demented – yet generous and caring – people in our community!   You can follow many of our charitable activities on our Facebook page.
