Four floors of haunted horrors!

Shocktober™, a terrifying, PG-13 haunted experience, takes place in the 32-room, 20,000-square-foot, 4-level Carlheim Manor and “Well of Souls” basement, located in the historic district of Leesburg, Loudoun County, Va, the heart of DC’s Wine Country. Carlheim Manor, Northern Virginia’s only REAL Haunted House, was built in 1872 over limestone caverns and an underground lake which has a history of legends filled with paranormal activity. Shocktober™ is NOT for the faint of heart! Are you brave enough to face the horrors around every corner of Shocktober™?
