The haunt through the mansion includes multiple routes. All ticket holders receive access to the indoor haunt + outdoor show.

The year is 1949 and the estate has changed hands several times since the passing of Sarah Winchester. It’s most recent isolation is broken by the arrival of Madame Nightshade, an entrepreneurial owner of a small traveling carnival and self proclaimed investigator of supernatural phenomena.

The Haunt - Wander the halls of the house of mystery and brace yourself for a terrifying journey through the worlds most haunted home. The Spirits that Madame Nightshade draw you further and further into the darkest areas of the Winchester Mystery House. You are left to wonder who called you to the house – Madame Nightshade or the restless spirits of the Winchester Mystery House?

Madame Nightshade’s Spirit Carnival and Outdoor Performance will kick off the evening with sideshow entertainers, games, food, and the Spookeasy Bar.

Spirits Within: The Wheelbarrow Ghost (works in basement with his ever-moving wheelbarrow), Little Mary (caught between the worlds of the living and dead), Headless Helena (serial killer who beheads husbands), The Caretaker (most malevolent), The Bride (dead, but eternally waiting for her wedding day), and The Swamp Witch (deceased botanist).

VIP tickets allow for the ticket holder to walk through both routes and gain expedited access to the haunt for a $15 upgrade. 

Paranormal researchers, mediums, ghost hunters and master magicians have visited Winchester Mystery House throughout 98 years that this fascinating mansion has been open to the public. Looking for explanations to make sense of this mysterious place, brave guests are guided through dark & dizzying hallways of the Winchester Estate in search of answers. The home will not be visible during the show. For the history of the house, book a daytime tour.
