Your evening begins with an hour-long, guided flashlight walking tour of the penitentiary. Highlights include the cellblocks, Death Row, Al Capone’s cell, and the underground punishment cells.

The ultimate Halloween experience! When you arrive at your reserved parking space, located directly in front of the penitentiary, you’ll be greeted by one of our expert tour guides, who will be your own personal “ghost host” for the evening. You’ll begin with a “Behind the Scenes” tour of the penitentiary complex, exploring some rarely seen spaces. Following the tour, you will be escorted to the entrance of Terror Behind the Walls, where you will go through all six haunted attractions ALONE! Assuming you make it through the show, we’ll take you once again “Behind the Scenes.” See our costume and makeup departments, and meet the masterminds behind the Terror. Finally, you’ll enjoy a 3-course gourmet dinner at Jack’s Firehouse, located directly across the street from the penitentiary.
Too scared? You don’t have to come alone! This exclusive experience can be enjoyed by up to four people per ALONE package. Only one ALONE package is available per night. Available exclusively online.

Feeling mischievous? What better way to spend mischief night than dancing the night away in a crumbling, abandoned prison as DJ Jimmy Depre (Tavern on Camac, Rebel NYC) spins the hottest beats?! DRAG your friends out! Twinks and treats! Gals and ghouls a’ plenty!
