Fright Nights at Winchester Mystery House through Oct. 31

The
award-winning Winchester Mystery House attraction “Fright Nights” returns for a
second year, transforming the estate into the world’s most terrifying Halloween
experience. Filled with haunted walk-through attractions, roaming scare
performers, and nightmare inducing tales, “Fright Nights” will once again be an
event visitors won’t want to miss.

The revamped “Curse of Sarah Winchester Maze”
- an interactive, multi-sensory gateway between Heaven and Hell – lets visitors
mingle with the undead as they travel through the Corn Fields of Winchester
Mystery House, into the haunted ruins of the family Graveyard and ultimately,
to a showdown with Sarah herself as she presides over one of her infamous
sances.

The “Walk with the Spirits” Flashlight Tour lets guests tour the
mansion as they never have before – on their own. Explore the rambling,
mysterious mansion with only the moonlight, a souvenir flashlight, and the
imagination to provide illumination through the bewildering labyrinth of rooms
and stairways. www.winchestermysteryhouse.com.
