Travelers come from around the globe to brave the historic Ohio State Reformatory's hair-raising, one-of-a-kind Haunted Prison Experience, "Supernatural,"
In addition to the Reformatory, other frightful experiences lure visitors to the area. The HallowWicked Haunted Woods offers an hour-long terrifying trek through the fields and forests Sept. 28-Nov. 2, featuring the Grim Graveyard, Cursed Cornfields, Chainsaw Death Path, Chop Shop, Demented Dollhouse and more. In downtown Mansfield's historic district, the 127-year-old Bissman Building started its life as a wholesale grocery distributor. But experienced ghost hunters report that when the company closed its doors in, "Not all of the employees left the building." Today, travelers can tour the haunted Bissman Building, as guides unveil its unique history, stories of movies and videos filmed on site and chilling tales of its ghostly spirits. Tours also include a full-blown paranormal investigation. Public tours are offered Sept. 28 and Nov 16, and private tours offered to groups of up to 30 by reservation. Tours begin at 8 p.m., typically run until 3 a.m. and cost $70.00 per person. They can be scheduled by contacting Project Manager Joe James at firstname.lastname@example.org or 419-295-5002.
