CELEBRATING OUR 20th ANNIVERSARY YEAR!
Why do you call it a theatrical haunt ?
We have an interactive storyline, and a game or challenge to send our patrons on each year. The story changes from year to year, however it always remains true to our basic legend and the characters of the castle. You will take your time going through with your guide. So you'll see everything. And everything will see you. Depending on your guide, and what 'denizens' are in the Castle, your tour can even change from night to night
it scary ?
Yes, we jam pack every startle scare we can into all the nooks and crannies of the Castle. Because of our theme, you will not see graphic violence portrayed. Vampires? Werewolves? Zombies? Yes yes yes. Ax murdering psycho's you could meet on the street? Not so much. Neither are there clowns or chainsaws. They don't make sense in our castle, so we don't have them
it a ride?
No, it is a walk through attraction.
I buy tickets in advance?
Yes , send
paypal payments to email@example.com.
Your tickets will be waiting at the ticket booth. Make sure to purchase
them at least 24 hours in advance to be sure we get the paypal notices.
We will not be able to check that in the ticket booth
I buy group tickets?
Yes our group
info page is here:
it a maze? Can I get lost?
No, you are
on a guided tour
heard its family friendly, does that means it's lame for adults?
No not at all. The show is designed for adults, especially for clever adults. People say we are family friendly because we do two Sunday Matinee Shows during the day, which have no scares at all, and more lighting than normal. We started the Matinees specifically because people were bringing little ones to the night show, and it often goes badly for the kids
I be touched?
Not in a
violent way, or in an attempt to scare you, no. However, to meet the
challenges, you may come in contact with a cast member while performing
your tasks. You may always decline that, even a simple hand shake. But
no one will grab you or bounce you around.
if can't make it through?
Well, we are a spooky creepy scary place. If you are too scared to make it through, we have done our job. However, there are many safety doors we can use to get you out. We realize there are other instances that could stop your tour, and we will deal with all that on a case by case basis, to make sure everything is good for you
age is good for kids for the night time show?
This is the trickiest question we get. All kids are different. You know your child I do not. Do they really understand the difference in real from fake. Are they scared of clowns or santa , mascots, etc...
night show is darker, and people will be jumping from un expected
locations. It's a whole lot different than loving to watch Scooby-doo on
That said, we have 5 year olds that love it all, and 10-12 year olds leaving in tears having a horrible night, and maybe ruining haunts for them forever. Please use your best discretion on this. Just because a haunt ticket is cheaper than a baby sitter, it may not be the best for your child
I wear a costume to Castle Blood?
Of course you can, that would be great. However, we must ask that no masks be worn on the tour, for safety reasons. Our cast members all have their name badges on, so there is no confusion about who is who. But please if in costume, remember, We are doing the show, you are our audience. Or as they say in western PA, "don't yinz guys be a jagoff anat" We do ask that no weapons real or fake be brought in as well
I get the hot Vampire chicks phone number?
you open all year?
In our new location, we will be open select weekends all year. Watch the website and Facebook page for our Christmas and Valentines shows.
it indoors or outside?
The Castle is now an all indoor tour. We are open, no matter what the weather is. In the past we were indoors and outside, but not now. The waiting line is however outside, on a clean paved surface. Even though we are indoors now, we still do not recommend open toe shoes, or extreme high heels
do we park?
There are 2 huge municipal lots across the street from us. There will be folks set up to direct you
you have souvenirs?
We have a gift shop at the end of the tour. We sell many Castle Blood branded items, as well as a great collection of art and craft items made by the characters at Castle Blood that you can't find anywhere else.
we take pictures?
Yes, with the cast members outside. But there is no photography or videography inside the castle
can I use my coupons?
The 2 dollar coupons are good for any evening show. They are not accepted for the matinee shows
there food nearby ?
Yes. There is a subway 200 yards from us, and there is a coffee house , ( planned at this writing) for right underneath us. In addition, there is the fun fall favorites, hot dogs, cider, cocoa ect, in our courtyard before you go in. We are also only 2 miles from the Fayette City/ Belle Vernon shopping area with over a dozen restaurants
do you get your cool stuff?
of our cast members actually build haunts all over North America and
beyond. We build many of our own props and costumes that you will see on
your tour. In fact, you'll see our stuff in most of the other haunts in
western PA if you know where to look.
, Yes, we will build anything you'd like for you. Just not in Sept or
I get married at Castle Blo
are a bunch of things to keep in mind for that, but now that we are less
weather sensitive, we have ways to accommodate this. There is not at
present one big room large enough for a wedding ( that will change in a
few years) but we can either do tents in the courtyard, or rent the
social club right next door. We also have a special wedding tour we can
do for your guests through the haunt
you rent the Castle for other projects?
Yes we do. The castle in all its different locations has been used for Video shoots, small movie projects, and photo shoots. Prices vary greatly depending on what you are doing, and what you need from us.
Can't we bring inside ?
No weapons of any kind, no alcoholic beverages, no cameras, flashlights, laser pointers. And please finish all food and drink before you enter.
we be thrown out?
Yes, you sure can. We are zero tolerance for drunkenness or other "under the influence" problems vulgar behavior, assaulting a cast member, and smoking on the entrance ramp and in the building, ruining the tour for other guests. Transgressions of a criminal nature will get you arrested, the Police station is right down the street, and they constantly cruise our parking lots

deal. When we first opened to the public, we were in Beallsville (
We were then

Now we are in
heard you burned down
Bentleyville building that we had not been in since 1997 burned down in
2009, long after we were gone and did not own it. The State listed it as
a warehouse fire, NOT a haunt fire. It had nothing to do with us, and we
are so thankful that the 5 stations that fought the fire did so well,
and no one was injured, because people still thought of it as the castle
building. Those fire departments, get free tickets now.
you a charity haunt ?
No we aren't,
however we are very active with community groups and charitable
organizations. Check the website for who we are working with this year
