Test Your Bravery at Leesburg’s Shocktober Haunted House


As the weather gets colder and the mood gets spookier, locals start planning their trips to Shocktober in Leesburg. Set in a 19th century manor house built by Dale Carlheim, Shocktober has been named by national media as one of the country’s scariest haunted houses. The facility opened to the public the first weekend of October and remains open through November 2. With eight different levels of ticketing, you can choose to visit any (or all) of the manor’s three levels, as well as the "Carnival of Souls" in the basement.

Aside from being a shockingly good time, Shocktober works toward a very special cause: all proceeds from the event go toward The Arc of Loudoun, a nonprofit that supports people living with disabilities. Reservations around Halloween are sure to go fast, so be sure to head online to save your spot as soon as possible.
