09/18/12 The Niles Haunted House Scream Park is pleased to welcome Aron Houdini, the only living Houdini, to the Park for an exclusive engagement. Houdini will be performing Friday and Saturday nights, September 21 and 22. His shows will include straight jacket escapes and illusion demonstrations. He also will conduct séances.

The public is invited to witness his daring escape while hanging upside down from a great height. The spectacle will be free on the midway and will take place at 9:00 p.m. on Friday.
