If things aren’t spooky enough during the day, you can visit the prison overnight. Start with a 90-minute guided tour, and the rest of the night is your own. If you are searching for paranormal activities or just want to experience the penitentiary at night, here is your chance.

Include a maximum of twenty (20) ghost hunters, or come all by yourself, to seek out the spirits that live here. PPIs are available on select nights! We are happy to check our calendar for you if you have a date in mind that you do not see listed. Please note, we do not have paranormal events in mid-September throughout October due to our Halloween events.
