Come find out why this year’s haunted prison trail story is called BREAKOUT!

(See if you can escape the terror!)

Workhouse Arts Center Presents: 2019 Haunted Trail – BREAKOUT!  This year, screams will echo across the 55-acre historic Workhouse campus, built on the grounds of the abandoned and notorious 100-year-old DC Department of Corrections Prison. What horrors of history await you, as you walk the woods and buildings of this infamous campus?  Our frightmasters showcase a fully redesigned trail, creepier scenes and stories, real prison cells, murder alley, clown town, and terrifying characters all designed to bring your darkest fears and nightmares to life.

IMPORTANT HAUNT TIPS
IMPORTANT: Please be aware that this event is VERY popular and tickets are often sold out PRIOR to each evening.  There will almost certainly be a wait when you arrive – sometimes a long one.  You won’t have to wait in line, but you will likely need to wait to enter the attraction until your group of numbers is posted on the outdoor TV screen.  It is also possible that sometime during the evening, tickets for that night will sell out.  PLEASE BUY TICKETS IN ADVANCE OF COMING TO THE SITE.

There are usually lots of ways to have fun before it’s your time on the haunted trail, from a bar to food trucks, scary movies, and more! Also, October weather in Virginia can be…unpredictable, so be sure to dress for the weather and your own comfort. Nights at the haunt can be COLD, possibly even wet or muddy! Don’t forget that this is an outdoor attraction – we want you to be warm and dry and comfy until it’s your turn to enter the haunted trail. Unfortunately, we cannot offer refunds for your ticket purchase (except in the event we cancel a night of the haunt due to weather or other circumstances).
