Hallowe’en Candlelight Tours To Debut 13 Doors

Jake Williams

In celebration of our beloved paranormal day, Friday the 13th, we want to take a moment to look forward to another popular event held here at Winchester Mystery House: Hallowe’en Candlelight Tours.

Over the last two years, we have experienced the story of Sarah Winchester battling against the psychic medium, Adam Coombs, the very man who ‘tricked’ her into building the home. While this has been a frightfully fun story to tell over the last two years, we want to look into the dark depths of the legends and lore that surround these 160 rooms.

Hallowe’en Candlelight Tours: The 13 Doors features 13 mystical doors that Sarah Winchester purchased to be placed throughout her home, all with varying degrees of magic, mysticism and dare we say…mayhem.

With 13 doors comes 13 keys, all of which unlock something powerful all their own. Today, in celebration of Friday the 13th, and in advance of Hallowe’en Candlelight Tours: The 13 Doors, we want to give you first look at one of they keys that will unlock one of the many doors throughout this home this fall.

Partnering again this year with the League of 13, Peter Overstreet, Creative Director of our show has given us the opportunity to take a look behind the curtain of what’s to come. Now in our third year of haunting the halls of Sarah’s home in the most theatrical way, we present to you the first of many keys and doors: The Brick Key.

This is one of 13 keys to unlock a door that will reveal a haunting history of Sarah’s past. What this may do, we know..but we’re not going to tell you just yet. But for now, here is an idea of what we’re working on…

The Brick Door key. Layered with rich detail, this artists rendering will clue you in on some of the great details pulled from the house to play into this year’s tour.

“We couldn’t be more proud of the work that’s gone into this year’s show. This is one of many things we have going on, and it’s just a small taste of the details and love we’re extracting from the house to put into our halloween experience” said Peter. “While I can’t say much more than that right now, I will say that we’ll be revealing even more at Midsummer Scream in two weeks, so stay tuned for more news soon”

Hallowe’en Candlelight Tours: The 13 Doors will be returning for a unprecedented 26 fright-filled nights this fall with tickets going on sale soon.
