The Haunted Jail- Not an average haunted house

More than just scares

Experience a completely redesigned haunt this season that is more intense and filled with new twists and terror! Your epic, bone chilling trip through the Haunted Jail will give you a never before seen perspective. Deimos Nosferato has been the keeper of souls for centuries and has awakened his tribe of creatures and vamps from the underworld…because it’s time to feed. Many have tried to end Deimos and his blood thirsty family and all have failed.

The HAUNTED JAIL in downtown Columbia City

has been the area’s best haunt since 1991. Celebrating our 24th season, this year promises to be the best year yet with the announcement of a new attraction only a few dare.

Rich in history and legend alike, the Haunted Jail has horrified even the most hardcore haunt seeker.

Constructed in 1875, the HAUNTED JAIL is located one block east of the courthouse at 116 E. Market St., Columbia City. It is our pleasure to entertain guests from across the country and abroad.

Deimos Nosferato: The Father Returns Home

My amazing children..

I have missed you all dearly. Join me, this is the season to be captured by the darkness.

Either surrender to the darkness or be drained of all that sustains you.

It is not enough that I win…everyone else must lose. I will teach you, make you stronger, and together take what is ours.

Join me, this is the season to be captured by the darkness.

It has been a sweet return..

to my home in the darkness of the catacombs. And they all remember me.

I am every nightmare you have ever had. I am your worst fears come true.

I am the very thing you fear…now October is upon, and I have come back.

There is a stench of blood and flesh in the air.

The lust for the beating heart is overpowering and my family is hungry.

I can see your fear..

I can taste your sweetness. And I can feel you as you make me stronger.

I hear that noise that you want to make but are too overcome by terror. Now is the time for you to decide.

Will you surrender? If you don’t, where will you be when we begin to feed?.

It is I.. Deimos Nosferato..the nightstalker

and I am eager to welcome you to my home..

Hours - 7 to 11 p.m. Friday Saturday
7 to 9 p.m. Monday-Thursday & Sunday

Cutter | Landscaper

Not much of a talker since his mother stitched his mouth shut after one too many times of being told to be seen not heard. He how stalks the halls of the Jail doing just that, as he silently follows his victims to inlfict the same pain he will forever feel.

Bailey | Evil Clown

Terrifingly beautiful, but watch your back... she loves scaring people to DEATH!

Johnny Voodo | Trickster

When alive Johnny lived in the haunted French Quarter, where he learned the fine art of voodo magic. The skills he still uses to this day to appear out of nowhere and give jail patrons the fright of their life!

Evil Annie | Zombie

Shes evil... that much we know. Not much else is known about Annie, except she definately has a taste for young brains!
