Have you been to St Albans Sanatorium? Then share photos of your experience!

In 2011 we entered the Asylum. In 2012 there was Reign of Terrors and Carnival of Cadavers. In 2013 our Fairytales became Nightmares. In 2014 we descended into Havoc! Walk these haunted halls and experience the House of Havoc!!! Lots of twists and turns, chills and thrills, and screaming for all!!! Get the fright of your life while supporting this historical and haunted landmark!!

For the public: we hope we can make known the support for St. Albans building to stay in place for as long as humanly possible! We understand for some it's entertainment that we can offer but for us it's entertainment with a purpose, but we hope to gain more love and support from anyone willing to try to help us get her to her original glory! We have the utmost respect for this historical landmark and the spirits that linger inside, and feel as though we're a part of something greater than a simple haunted house or paranormal event!

Review This Haunt
  • Loved it!

    This is a great attraction. The sanitorium itself is the star, full of creepy hallways and narrow stairs. The staff/actors are great. Plus, we took videos when we left, and our phones picked up spirit orbs! Loved it!

  • The devil

    My frat brothers and I went this past Saturday. We weren't really scared but this devil guy popped up 4 different times throughout. It was pretty amazing he knew where we were going to be. Wish we would be here next year to see what they will pull off!

  • Best in VA!

    We went this past weekend to House of Havoc, and let me tell you, it blew Gallows AND Graham's Forge out of the water! St.Albans has stepped it up since last year! This is the best haunted house I have been to! I def will be back this Friday (Halloween!!!) to see what all they have in store for us! :)

  • Still Fun

    I went for the first time this weekend and it was lots of fun! The rooms were set up nicely, however due to LOTS of fog and strobe lights, I couldn't really even see how some of the rooms were set up. I realize this is all a part of the effect, yet seeing "blood and guts" rather than blinding fog is scarier to me. Also, I personally cannot handle strobe lights because I am very light sensitive, so I had to close my eyes for a lot of it. From what I could see though, the props and decorations were done very well! One other thing is that even with the directory signs, it was still confusing to find your path through the building. My group ended up getting confused multiple times, and in one room and one of the scary characters had to turn on a flashlight and direct us to the door. Despite the excessive fog, strobes, and confusing pathways, it was fun.

  • Scary

    Last night was awesome! I had the hell scared out of me and girl a few times. There's demon rituals, clowns, chainsaws, crazy doctors and nurses.... You name it and is there. I didn't like the chainsaw room very much . All they do is turn it on, they don't even chase you. The graveyard area kinda sucked too because you can't see where you're going. Other than those two things , it was pretty good! I could tell they changed a few things around since last weekend but it wasn't a bad thing. Overall, this place is pretty good and I'm pretty impressed by what they do. I'm looking forward to going again halloween night.

  • What an Awesome Place

    Actors were great...seemed like a long tour inside. Loved the settings and the lab. Was even better than Grahams Forge. Really scary clowns and some places were soooo spooky you could hear a pin drop.....the long hallways and staircases created a very scary atmosphere. So glad we went tonight.

  • A lot of fun

    We went last Saturday and are coming back tonight. We had a lot of fun and it's great! If anyone is interested in going to a GOOD haunted house, this is the place to go.

  • Great Historic Haunt

    I go to every haunted house event they hold and they never disappoint. All workers are volunteers and their dedication shows. This is a great haunted house and profits benefit a great cause to save this historic landmark. Please go and show your support.

  • Great for families!

    Last night I went through with my sons on a no scare. Let me just say the actors were so great with my boys! They got down on their level, spoke with them, and made them feel comfortable being there. One of the actors gave my boys green glow sticks which they later played Star Wars with. (Wish I could post the picture on here.) They begged me this morning to go back tonight, and was disappointed that they couldn't. We will most likely be back Friday. :) I will be recommending this to everyone at work tomorrow! Thank you for at great time!

  • They really stepped it up!! Bravo!

    I went friday and Saturday night this weekend so let me just start with Friday; it was OK but it was lacking. I posted the previous comment called "It's OK... But not the best". ..... I totally take that back! They ROCKED IT last night ! I don't even want to give any details because I think everyone should go and expierience it for themselves ! It IS worth it! It seemed like there were more actors , more pop outs , and definitely more scares. I was Thoroughly entertained! I may even go back halloween night! It would be cool if they did something special for Halloween night or maybe changed it up a bit!

  • Had a great time!

    I voulenteer at a haunted house in cburg. My group came through last night mostly to bad mouth what they do here. I didn't realize how amazing the building is! We were preparing to get into a yelling match with the workers but to our surprise everyone was super friendly. The areas scared us like really scared us! It seemed like a big family the way they are able to play off each other. This has really made me rethink how I scare. I personal will be back!

  • It's OK.... But not the best

    I agree with the person who posted the previous comment ... They were lacking actors. I believe I only got scared once or twice and that was in the house and in that bloody sheet room and that was it. I'm coming back tonight with some other friends hoping it will be better , but we'll just have to see. It is worth the money you pay and I heard great things about them, which made m want to go, but last night was a disappointment. Let's see how they do tonight! You guys are still kick-ass for what you guys do!! Keep it up!

  • Yawn

    First off I love what this group does. Unfortunately last night they dropped the ball :( This was my second weekend going and the past weekend was amazing! Some of the jump outs were scary and the fog rooms got me but it seemed empty in most areas. The first part seemed like people stepping over each other, the "chambers" seemed to lack then the ending people came at you from all over. I would come back to see the building but I'm very disappointed with how this weekend had changed from last. Keep improving!

  • Had fun

    I would say my favorite part was the house! The sets were amazing and looked like a haunted mansion! The actors screaming at you to stay, or to get out was a little over played and not scary. I was a little disappointed with the Chambers, you start off in a "fiery smoky room" which got me pumped up, but you were then led to a maze... that was boring, then down the step to what appeared to be a carnival, which I guess was part of the chambers?... then you go down a confusing hallway with body parts. The last area I didn't even understand, seemed like big unfulfilled rooms. I had fun though and got startled but some parts you can do without or at least change the ending to something with a bang. I want to come back Saturday and give the haunted house another shot at scaring me! Hopefully something's will change. ;)

  • Scary as all get out!

    Me and my friends went to St. Alban's House of Havoc this past Saturday and let me just tell you.... IT WAS WORTH IT. We payed the regular 15$ each to get in and it was quite a long wait to get in but that was alright because we were well entertained in line! I'd have to say that the scariest part was the areas with the demon guy banging a bone on a bucket, the clown chained to a chair (who chased is into the maze room.... Scary!!!), and the maze room! The three girls working in there got us good! One with her face ripped at her moth asked me if I wanted a ripped smile like hers and put a fake knife up to my mouth!!!!..... Then screamed at me to have one like hers and chased me and my friends down the hall! I almost peed myself and the other girls in there were creepy too! The maze was confusing but the actors made it fun, scary, and worth it. One of them wanted us to play hide and seek with her?? Heck no!!! And that devil guy and the clown.... They were crazy!!! The lab part of the house was freaky too and there WAS A LOT of clowns!! I'd have to say it was defiantly worth the 15$! I will be coming back again halloween weekend!

  • Great Time

    My girlfriends and I came to the haunted house after leaving the Gallows. This haunted house was 100 times more tasteful than the other place. This was our first time here. The waiting line was a little longer than we had imagined, I would recommend everyone to pay the extra five dollars to jump ahead. I'm not saying that waiting in line was a waste of time there was plenty of entertainment with chainsaws but what awaits you inside is worth it! All through the beginning of the haunted house we were told that "Dr. Havoc" was waiting for us, unfortunately by the end of the haunted house it would appear that "Dr.Havoc" wasn't there? I recommend everyone who is planning on going to any other hunted house to skip it and come here. This hunted house feels like the actors really enjoy what they are doing, plus we were told that all of the money goes back to the building itself. What a great cause!

  • Crazier this weekend

    We have been every weekend so far! It would appear the chamber area changes every time? I had posted before about the guy dancing with the skeleton, this week the room appeared backward... No dancing :( but there was this CRAZY clown chained to a chair trying to get at you, another person would enter and release him! Yes, the clown would run at you! SCARY!!! After going through the maze we would see yet more clowns... I HATE clowns by the way but after be chased by one the others aren't scary... If It was up to me I would lose half the clowns if possible. The ending seemed to be lacking people and a little slow, but overall we loved it! Will be back next week!
