Amling’s was a Haunted House in Melrose Park, IL that started in the 1950s. It was thought to be the first of its kind in the U.S. and was priced at .25 cents a tour. The tour involved multiple scary scenarios, including a frightening gorilla who roared at people walking by. As the haunted house became hugely successful, the owners expanded, adding carnival rides. If visitors could make it all the way through the haunted house, they were awarded with an Amling’s Brave Heart Award button, like the one pictured.
