Staff was friendly. Free lighted roses to keep. House was long, carefully crafted scenes and dedicated volunteers in character throughout. My wife got the screams of her life in there.

Great haunted house. Very scary and well designed. Would definitely go again but not with the girlfriend ( too scary)

The house itself was amazing and very well put together! It seemed to go on forever and was full of fun terrors! However, the large group of never ending screaming and pushing teenage girls in line next to us ruined our experience, and ear drums, just a bit. Guess the full experience will depend on what annoying people you may, or may not have, next to you.

We visited this haunted house for Valentine’s Day and loved it, so we decided to come back for Halloween. IT WAS EVEN BETTER! So scary and excellent special effects! They even scared you while standing in line. Attended Six Flags Fright fest and this was way better! Will go every time it’s available.

From Our Editors

In 1872, builders placed the last piece of stone on Paxton Manor. At the time, there's no way they could have known what this mansion would become—or what would happen to its most infamous resident, Jedidiah Carver. A citizen of Leesburg, he was cast out for his crimes against animals and forced to dwell beneath the caverns of Paxton Manor. It's said that Jedidiah and his family still haunt the mansion today, and it's their whispers you may hear on a frightful walk through the house during Shocktober.

This Halloween event brings with it flashing lights and creepy noises, as visitors wander through halls lined in skeletons and actors dressed in gory makeup. Yet the haunted house's ghastly ways are truly all good fun; so much so, that visitors can opt to purchase glow-in-the-dark "Chicken" necklaces to ensure the performers take it easy. Proceeds benefit The Arc of Loudoun at Paxton Campus, a nonprofit that provides direct services for people with disabilities and their families. Since 2009, the center has grown into a sizable organization with an onsite preschool, one-on-one academic programs, and ALLY, an advocacy program for people with disabilities. To keep the community involved in its operations, The Arc of Loudoun at Paxton Campus also runs regular events including yoga groups, seasonal dances, and life-skills workshops.
