As each night falls at the end of the harvest season, a foggy mist fills the air, bringing with it the glowing lights of a mysterious carnival that beckons to the innocent: “join us … “
The locals know to stay away, as legends tell of an enigmatic figure that dwells within, known only by the name, “Twitchy.”

Will you heed their warning, or is the lure of the carnival too enticing … ?

This year’s Workhouse Haunt immerses guests through a highly-themed walk-through experience, as creepy characters deliver contactless scares in multiple scenes. Guests will travel in small groups for a frightening 30 minute experience that brings them next to the site’s abandoned, historic buildings and into the dark woods where they will encounter terrifying characters and sights that are not for the faint of heart.

Set on the grounds of the former District of Columbia’s Correctional Facility, the Workhouse campus provides a unique and extra eerie setting for this unusual Halloween attraction. Please note that this outdoor route includes paved and unpaved surfaces, so guests are cautioned to wear appropriate footwear. Tickets are being sold by timed entry, and advance purchase is highly recommended to reserve your time slot. Snacks and beverages will be available for purchase at the Haunt Bar, located near the check-in area in the campus quad.

The 2021 Workhouse Haunt (recommended for guests 13 years of age and older) will take place on 15 nights, beginning on Sunday, October 3rd at 7pm. Timed entry tickets are now available and must be purchased online (pricing varies upon the night). On opening night (October 3rd), the Workhouse will honor our area’s First Responders, Teachers, Active Military, Veterans, and Health Care Workers by offering them free admission when they reserve a timed entry ticket online and present a valid I.D. upon arrival at the Ticket Booth on campus. There will be premium nights with live entertainment on October 16th, 23rd, 30th and 31st.
Some locations may have last minute updates due to changing circumstances. Please visit the attraction's website and/or social media before going to double-check that they are open.

    Very well organized; great atmosphere and plenty of activities while you wait. The trail was good! Actors were exceptional. Definitely worth the money and we would go again!

  • Totally a history lesson and a haunt

    Bar and movie as you wait. Organized well. LOTS of clown. Huge maze. All sorts of sounds along the trails. Bus crash was a cool touch. I felt safe with the security every place...even in the parking lots. Better and more original than last year. Not your normal Freddy and Jason. Loved the “King Pin” at the end. That was the coolest outfit I’ve ever seen! Tour guide at the beginning gave a great history lesson at the beginning and I kept waiting for something to jump out at me. List to what she says and it makes a great story line. Can’t believe you put this all together fro scratch this year. Sound system on the movie wad fantastic.
