October 5 - October 31
HAUNT ALERT: We recommend purchasing tickets as early as possible for Madhaunter’s Madhouse. The event is very popular and recent nights have sold out completely. Purchase tickets online ahead of time or – if tickets are still available – you can purchase them beginning at 7p on the night of the haunt at the ticket booth. Remaining nights for our 2018 season include: October 21, 26, 27, 28, and 31.
The Workhouse Arts Center is thrilled to announce the return of Madhaunter’s Madhouse haunted maze of terror and Ghost Bar Cinema to the Workhouse (9518 Workhouse Way, Lorton, VA 22079) for a third year of scares on select nights from October 5 through October 31, 2018.
IMPORTANT: Please be aware that this event is VERY popular and there will almost certainly be a wait when you arrive – sometimes a long one. We have a bar, food trucks, scary movies, escape room, and paintball arena so you can have fun while you wait. ALSO: The remaining nights of the haunt are likely to be COLD, possibly even wet or muddy! It’s October in Virginia and this is an outdoor attraction. PLEASE remember to DRESS APPROPRIATELY for the weather – we want you to be warm and dry and comfy until it’s your turn to enter the haunted trail. And while 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) we ARE happy to exchange your unused haunt entry ticket (white) for a certificate for haunt entry on any other night this season.
We’re excited to announce that Mix107.3, home of the Jack Diamond Morning Show, will be on site at Madhaunter’s Madhouse on October 28th! Visit them on the Workhouse baseball field to take a spooky pic at their photobooth that you can post on your Instagram or Facebook page!
Chosen as 2018’s “#1 Must-See Haunt” in Virginia by thousands of passionate fans at TheScareFactor.com, Madhaunter’s continues to achieve both popular and critical success, including being chosen as Virginia’s “Top Haunt” in 2016 and runner-up in 2017 by industry experts at FrightFind.com.
In 2018, screams will echo across the 55-acre historic Workhouse campus, built on the grounds of the abandoned and notorious DC Department of Corrections Lorton Reformatory. Our frightmasters will debut redesigned trails, spookier scenes, creepier characters, and more spectacular special effects, all designed to bring our guests’ darkest fears and nightmares to life. And the popular, zombie-themed Madhaunter Escape Room will be on-site during the haunt, too.
Based on guest feedback from our first two years, our Madhaunter’s Madhouse event will also bring back fan-favorite experiences at our Ghost Bar Cinema, including local food trucks, themed bar, and scary movies projected onto a giant movie screen.
New for 2018 is a GIGANTIC 30′ x 60′ outdoor paintball arena. Do you have what it takes to stop the zombie apocalypse? This is your chance to find out! Our friends at TBL Paintball are the geniuses behind this exciting part of our event.
