Jack’s is so eventful throughout the season that our timed entry is a way to control the arrival, and the number of guests allowed on the property at a given time. Much like life, it’s not foolproof, but we do our best to provide ease of entry and the most memorable experience for all!  We can’t wait to Celebrate with you at Jack’s this Season

Jack’s Pumpkin Pop Up is a limited pop-up experience! We encourage advance ticket purchase as soon as you confirm your party date time and size to capture the best value.

Prices vary by the date, time, and package you select. The closer to the date, ticket prices usually increase, if they are available. We often sell out for prime dates.

Events on our platform may have tickets that are “market-priced,” so ticket prices and fees may adjust over time based on demand. This is similar to how airline tickets and hotel rooms are sold. A service & processing fee is added to the price of each ticket. These fees vary by selected event date, time, and bundle.

  • All Sales are final.
  • Please careful select, review, and confirm your date and time when purchasing.
  • Tickets are non-refundable, not changeable, and non-transferable after purchase.

We love Halloween. We have Costume Guidelines to help ensure all guests have a great time!
All event attendees may dress in their favorite costume and must follow these guidelines:

  • Costumes should be appropriate for an all-age venue and may not be obstructive, offensive, or violent.
  • Costumes should not contain any weapons which resemble or could easily be mistaken for an actual weapon.
  • Costumes should not contain sharp objects, pointed objects or materials that may accidentally strike another Guest.
  • Guests may wear masks. However, masks must not obstruct vision and eyes must be visible at all times.
  • Costumes should not drag on the ground.
  • Guests who do not adhere to these guidelines may be refused entry into the event unless the costume can be modified to meet the above guidelines.

Jack’s welcomes and loves guests of all abilities! Our 2 acres in downtown Chicago are completely covered in straw and hay and located on unpaved and uneven farm ground. We do our very best to make our event as accessible in every area, to all our guests as possible.

Wheelchairs, strollers, and wagons can be brought on premises and are able to complete most of the corn maze, but the ground (like any farm) can be bumpy in spots, and wheelchairs will need someone pushing/helping. Other areas of the event are spread out over a combination of straw, dirt, and gravel which could be somewhat difficult to push through. Assistance from a caregiver should be planned for.

When you arrive our leadership team is always happy to answer any other questions you might have and help in any way we can. We look forward to celebrating with you.
