Haunted House Highlights: Haunted Prison Experience

The Ohio State Reformatory, more commonly known as the Mansfield Reformatory, is a historic prison and a notoriously haunted building in Ohio. Stories abound of tortured spirits and ex-guards who remained trapped within the prison walls.

With once inhumane conditions and brutal treatment of prisoners, it's no surprise that Mansfield Reformatory is one of the most haunted places in the state.

The Mansfield Reformatory begins a truly haunted experience each fall as the Haunted Prison Experience takes shape inside. During the 45-minute haunt, guests will explore the darkened cellblocks and hallways while experiencing in-your-face thrills from actors and animatronic monsters. Spooky lighting and a spine-tingling soundtrack complete the haunted experience.

Who knows, maybe you'll even encounter an actual ghost during your haunted house journey!

Tickets cost $18 per person or $28 for a speedpass, which allows you to jump to the front of the line. Guests must be 13 years or older to enter. The haunt is open through Nov. 1. 

Haunted Prison Experience hours:
Thursdays from 7-11 p.m.
Fridays and Saturdays from 7 p.m.-midnight
Sundays from 7-10 p.m.
*Gates open at 6 p.m., box office opens at 6:30 p.m.

The Ohio State Reformatory is located at 100 Reformatory Road in Mansfield.

Halloween is right around the corner, which means haunted houses are popping up all over the city. Over the next couple weeks, I'll be highlighting some of the creepiest, ghoulish and most sinister haunted houses Northeast Ohio has to offer.
