Dungeon of Horrors: Over 10,000 people each year are introduced to one of the scariest places behind bars. Get your tickets so you can experience the fright of being locked in a cell, the fear of being lost in a maze, and the terror of an eerie walk through the dungeon of horrors. Will you manage to keep up with your group and not get separated. Do you have what it takes to make it through. Don’t worry, our actors will be there to help you along.

The North Walk: The North Walk will take you through the oldest part of the former West Virginia Penitentiary. It is also known as the area with the most paranormal activity, a place where murders, violence and brutality were common everyday occurrences. This was where the most dangerous inmates were housed, the maximum security area, North Hall; the inmates called it – The Alamo. You will enter this part of the prison through the Administration Building and the wheel – these areas have been closed to the public for years and only opened for the Haunted House season. The North Walk is Not an attraction, but a flashlight tour of an area that was once considered one of the bloodiest institutions in the nation.

Escape the Pen: Live escape games are a type of physical (not virtual) adventure game in which people are locked in a themed room with other participants. They have to use different elements within the room to solve a series of puzzles, find clues, and escape the room within a set time limit. We will give you 60 minutes to get yourselves out. Participants must be observant and use their critical/lateral thinking skills to escape the room. The setting of our escape room game takes place in a second floor office, and is not wheelchair accessible. Tickets to the escape room are for the game only, and does not include a tour of the facility.

Time: 11 am, 1 pm, 3 pm
