This bizarre haunted mansion is open for tours all year long, but only in October can you partake in the mind-bending, after-dark experience that is “Unhinged,” a fully-immersive horror show that takes place in the dark passages of the cursed estate. During the hour-long journey, you’ll trespass inside of rooms that are forbidden to the general public, confront evil spirits, and discover twisted tales and secrets of the house. Because you’ll need a drink to both muster the courage to go on the tour and calm your nerves after, there are cocktails and treats for purchase in the courtyard and gardens. While you sip, you can also watch a projection mapped light show that uses the home’s architecture as a canvas as well as admire a display of an edible gothic-inspired replica of the house. Just don’t eat it or who knows what evils will befall you.
Cost: $44 to $54
