Spend the Night at West Virginia Penitentiary

Want to see what it is really like to spend the night in prison — but with no living residents? Book your overnight with us for a ghost hunt!

Tour the facility with a guide for a 90-minute guided tour, and then roam the halls on your own. See who you can find “living” in the Sugar Shack or North Hall, look for patients in the psych ward, or try to sit in a cell — we dare you!

Bring a friend, bring all your friends, or come by yourself! We require that each person respect the facility and other investigators attending the event. Please, no intentional scaring, screaming, loud talking, writing on walls, or defacing of any kind.

Make sure to bring your flashlights, cameras, extra batteries, and any investigative equipment that you might need!! You are allowed to bring snacks, refreshments, and coolers. Open-toed shoes and heels are not allowed.

Public Ghost Hunts are for individuals 18 years of age and older.

NO ALCOHOL! Alcoholic beverages are not permitted in our parking areas and/or inside of our facility. Alcohol consumption is not permitted prior to your event. You will be considered a risk to yourself, other participants, and our property. If alcohol consumption is suspected, you will be removed from, or denied entry to, the event and not issued a refund.
