Madhaunter’s Madhouse Haunted Trail

Virginia’s scariest haunted attraction returns to the Workhouse for a new year of screams and scares! Madhaunter’s Madhouse is an indoor and outdoor maze of terror that will have you jumping out of your skin at every turn, complete with heart pounding scares and custom made special effects. Come visit Madhaunter’s Madhouse and experience the madness for yourself!

Proceeds from the haunted trail support the visual arts, arts education, performing arts, and history programs of the Workhouse Arts Center, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.


This year we’re excited to add Tales from the Grave, free movies nights on the Workhouse baseball field! Friday and Saturdays feature scary double-features on our gigantic movie screen, with a single feature film on Sunday nights. You’ll also find food trucks, free photo booth, outdoor Light Up Games (Bocce Ball, Cornhole), and (for our guests aged 21+) a fully stocked bar to help you calm your nerves! Learn more about Tales from the Grave on Facebook.

If you enjoy our event, please leave us a glowing review on social media!
