They’re sneaky and they’re moody

Insidious and gloomy.

They’re altogether Looney.

The Jay Ghoul Family!

The Ghoul family has a bone to pick with you….that is, you’ve been formally invited to come and celebrate the spirit of the Halloween season with the Family in their House of Curiosities! They’re opening up their splendid and spooky castle home to those looking for a unique Halloween thrill this year, especially those willing to help search for the Ghoul family’s lost treasure! You’ll meet and interact with the ever peculiar Mr. and Mrs. of the Castle, see what Grandmama is cooking up, meet a long lost uncle, and find out what other zany family members have turned up at this festive time of year!

We hope you come because they are just dying to meet you!

Jay Ghoul’s House of Curiosities will take place on October 17th, 18th, 19th, 20th, 24th, 25th, 26th, 27th, and on Halloween October 31st. The performances are 40 minutes long and are timed to begin every 15 minutes. The first performance is at 6 pm with the last one at 10 pm, except on Thursdays and Sundays when the last performance is at 9 pm.

About the performance: The 40-minute performances of Jay Ghoul’s House of Curiosities take place exclusively at night when the mansion comes alive through eerie lighting and Halloween decorations. The evening experience will appeal to adults, teens, and school-aged children aged 7 and older. This is not a Halloween haunted house – the scariest thing may just be the bad puns!

This Halloween event is a nighttime theater performance lasting about 40 minutes and visiting the 1st floor and basement of the mansion. If you would like to enjoy our more traditional tour experience, please purchase a Daytime Classic Tour with Autumnal Decor instead.

To purchase tickets by phone: Call 1-888-718-4253 opt. 1 (please note that additional fees apply to phone orders.)
