  • Email Verified Damn Scary

    This place was amazing and damn scary!! We visited this place on the eve of my wife’s birthday. Got there just before opening time and we spent around 20 minutes in the queue. Purchased $35 ticket for two attractions and both of them were just amazing. We started with Paxton Manor, a kind of investigation haunt and our guide was super cool. Don’t forget to bring your flashlights as it’s too dark out there inside the room. The best part was all-night event with a dozen of people and carrying equipments to find evidence of ghosts. We were astounded by the special effects and surroundings of each room. The next, was carnival of souls and we really enjoyed the interaction with creepy clowns. Fortunate enough to visit this place. Well recommended.

  • Email Verified Absolutely Scary Night Adventure

    Absolutely scary! A very different kind of Halloween experience at Shocktober! Got there in a group of four friends and we purchased the tickets at the counter for $40. The first attraction was the Paxton manor...it was a very unique investigation haunt carried in the 140 years old building with just one flashlight. The actors and props were cool and did a great job in fascinating the horror experience at its peak. We really enjoyed a lot and thanks to management team as they never pushed people to enter the building. All in all, a great event to relish the ghost hunting experience at an affordable admission fee! Highly mesmerized!!
