We are open every weekend in October!

Ticketing and Haunted Trail entrance are located in the ball field, which is surrounded by the 3 large guard towers visible from 123. 

A few things to keep in mind. This is a very popular attraction and the lines can get long. Onsite ticket sales close at 10:30 (9:30 on Sunday nights and Halloween) unless we sell out for the night. The trail is outdoors and indoors so dress appropriately. Sneakers are highly recommended, no high heels or flip flops. We got some great feed back last year and have made a number of changes to the Haunt! Have fun, scream all you want, and nightmares are on the house!

For the second year in a row we were voted one of the top haunted houses in Virginia!

About Madhaunter’s Madhouse

After designing terrifying attractions for 15 years on the west coast, the Madhaunter brought his mayhem back to Northern Virginia where it originated over 25 years ago. He made his frightening debut in 2011 with the Track of Terror at Laurel Park in Maryland, with an encore performance in 2012. In 2013, Madhaunter created Madhaunter’s Madhouse, an all indoor haunted attraction in Sterling, Virgina designed to bring life to your darkest fears. In 2016 Madhaunter partnered with the Workhouse Arts Center to bring the vision to the old Lorton Workhouse Prison. This partnership brought the most terrifying Haunted Attraction to life right in the center of the DMV , providing nightmares for those brave enough to enter. In 2017 Madhaunter’s Madhouse is coming back to the workhouse an even bigger and longer event. Stay tuned for updates!
