They made the announcement on YouTube earlier this week saying:

Evil Intentions is opening the doors to the terrifying Old Joliet Prison. Walk the hallways of Chicago’s most notorious killers like John Wayne Gacy, Richard Speck, Nathan Leopold, and Richard Loeb. Descend into the hellish basement where inmates were left to die in pitch-black cells.

Joliet Patch is reporting the company says it will be open this fall in time for Halloween.

Evil Intentions are the minds behind the Haunted House in Elgin in The Old Elgin Casket Factory.

And of course, the Old Joliet Prison is known for its cameo in the movie “Blues Brothers.”
