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
  • Magnificent!!

    It was a huge mansion with a ghastly past. There were winding hallways that was dusty. Now, looking like an old asylum, the history behind this building was too hard to ignore as we were exploring.

  • Perfect Halloween Spot

    It was a great time at the Sanatorium and I will recommend it to anyone who love to have a real spooky Halloween. A night long investigation was a scary thought but wanted to experience the thrill.

  • Wonderful night

    It’s been a wonderful night at the Sanatorium. It was an interesting activity and I have always done it every year. Me and my friends went for a private investigation. The basement, broiler room and vast bathrooms are fodder for an existence that you can easily capture. We were given an introduction to the whole thing which was helpful. Waiting for the next opportunity to come back.

  • An unparalleled experience!!!

    We got to spend a night here at St Alban's Sanatorium and it was simply awesome. It was a beautiful mansion with an ugly past. It was flashlight tour with my son and it was an experience unparalleled. It sure was scary but we had a guide to take us along the entire place. That was a great relief. The guide was friendly and had good knowledge about the place and its history. Which was good. We got to learn a lot from them and I love to do a longer one.

  • Email Verified Real adventure is out here...

    Went with my friends for the real adventure. I never was the scary type. But when you get equipped with shadow detectors, rim pods and KII your heart starts racing. We liked the stories that were told and its ghostly past was heart breaking. We could get the full spectrum in the equipment and that was superb.

  • Bit boring

    Personally I did not feel scared at all. The actors and volunteers tried their level best to scare us but did not work much to their exasperation. There were more no scare areas than the scare spots. History tour was uninspiring. It was a bit boring and I’m not coming back.

  • Fascinating experience

    If paranormal is your thing, check this one out. The building itself was very fascinating. Participating in the investigation was a first time experience for me. I spent most of the time in basement bowling alley, Broiler room and the large bathroom. The staff were friendly and they help me to have a safe, organized and undisturbed paranormal hunt. I would certainly love to have a second chance in investigating this building. I will recommend this place.

  • Definitely not worth

    Wasn’t scary at all. The setup of old sanatorium was nice but they didn’t have adequate actors for entertainment. The queue was long and there were hardly any staffs or entertainers who can listen to our queries. It was easy to find where the actors were hiding and scares weren’t of good quality. Besides this, they were charging for parking. Definitely not worth a visit for such a high admission fee.

  • Email Verified Mind blowing experience

    The visit to St Albans Sanatorium was my first paranormal investigation activity and it was mind blowing. It was a terrifying experience communicating with the spirits as guided by our volunteer. We investigated and could gather some evidence. It was thrilling as we move from one hot spot to another. It was a huge area to investigate and the staff was very patient with us. We will definitely come back.

  • Whole new experience

    I was always intrigued by paranormal literature, and when I heard about St Albans Sanatorium, I couldn’t resist. Me and wife had a great time interacting with the spirits. In fact, I was blown away by the experience. The management and staff were really helpful in guiding us. Overall, it was a whole new experience. I would want to come back again. It was a great experience. Characters were spot on and they interacted with us. The staff were quite knowledgeable about St Albions and they were willing to answer any questions thrown at them. I will recommend this place if you are looking for a really haunted place to investigate.

  • Email Verified Totally freaked out

    I and my husband visited the St Albans Sanatorium and I must say I was totally freaked out by this very old building. It had lights in and some strange noises inside. The spirits leave you spell bound. They even talk to you and take your attention. Yes, it does sound a bit creepy but I will say that just go and visit this place if you have any interest in history. I will be coming back soon spirits!!

  • Email Verified Scary paranormal activity

    You will get the chills at this place with real paranormal activities around the historical building. Even a non believer will feel there are ghosts in there with the creepy ambience and darkness. St Albans Sanatorium is maze like and is in ruins. It was once a mental health facility updated to a haunt house. It was phenomenal and took about 15 minutes to go through. Each year it is getting longer. The volunteers were quite knowledgeable, engaging and kept us on our nerves. The fact that it is actually haunted makes this place one of the best. Would love to come back to have new ghost adventures.

  • Email Verified The spooky old building

    I am not a kind of person for this terror of ghosts. I was really spell bound on seeing this beautiful building. The staff here is very much equipped in all details about St Albans Sanatorium and they answer all your doubts. But you will be surprised to know that the spirits here they communicate to you. I had come here as I had heard about their "Flashlight Tours" where they teach you the history this place and let you use some ghost hunting equipment. I loved being here and enjoyed every bit of it. I recommend you all to visit this place once.

  • Email Verified Perfect spooky atmosphere

    The view of this old sanatorium is very beautiful from outside. Here you will get to see things that are just beyond normal human thinking. It was an unexpected kind of creepiness inside the house. We really enjoyed seeing the building and loved the bowling alley. Reasonably priced and perfectly spooky atmosphere. Little bit of a long wait it was okay!

  • 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! :)
