Everyone did a good job tonight
You ready? We ready!!
Nice job again this year! Basement was amazing!
I've volunteered for 2 nights but still too scared to go inside. The Colonel told me it was fun...hopefully he is telling the truth.
It’s officially #spookyseason at the Black Olive Bar and Grill for Halls of Horror at The National 💀 10% of our room & drink sales will be donated to The Arc of Loudoun, so be sure to stop by for a creepy cocktail, Solace Brewing Company beer, or stay the night...if you dare. Book now: http://shocktober.conferencecenter.com
I had the pleasure of getting a personal tour of this haunted house today while in Leesburg, VA. This Shocktober house is on the property of one of our customers. I was walked in detail through all 4 floors..This is by far the scariest haunted house I have ever been inside. Matt the brains and creator behind this knows his craft well. I will be here in October..I would not recommend it for anyone under 16.
This past Saturday Shocktober's Paxton Manor hosted Elizabeth Saint (Ghosts of Shepherdstown) and Nick Groff (Ghosts of Shepherdstown and Paranormal Lockdown) for their live stream ghost hunt featuring actor turned ghost hunter Chad Lindberg and psychic Chip Coffey. There was some interesting activity in the house that night.
Someone call AAA, my car is dead!
Can you clear up some confusion for me. Online I can only buy tickets as late as 9:00, but the website says that you must be in the gate by 10:00 to enter. Does that mean that if you have a 9:00 ticket you get to stay later?
My man! Great time will try and be back again
