Paxton Manor is one of the few haunts to actually take place inside a real ‘haunted’. They do a …show more great job with multiple levels and amazing sets. Not just a ‘surprise screamer’, but creepy actors and real sets. A must see if you’re in Northern Virginia! They also do a Scary Valentine event in February and we can’t get enough!
