Heartstoppers Haunted House

Best haunted house in sac area. 4 houses total, I would recommend doing the Asylum and Deadands first as they are least scary, then Underland and end on the newest addition, it is great! But if you are claustrophobic, it does have a short moment, about 10-15 seconds depending on your pace that may frighten you. Very fun, worth the $25 per person.

The Ward

After the atrocities of the Steamghàst Asylum were discovered, the property was turned into a museum and research center. At least from the outside…

For many years Steamghàst Asylum, located outside the town of Deadlands, was illegally treating their patients with steam powered torture tanks and brutal electroconvulsive therapy. During this time everyone inside began to lose their sanity, one by one everyone was either killed or escaped.

12 years later it was cleared out by a distant relative of the Ghàst family. It was turned into a museum and research center, to promote mental and physical health.

Rumors that some of the escaped doctors ended up back there, to either make amends for their atrocities or continue their work, are unsubstantiated.

In Deadlands, if the wind is just right, you can smell the most unusual odors coming from the old asylum. It’s probably nothing, just coincidence…
