Shocktober will take you to a new level of terror with room after room of screams. Be prepared to be scared out of your wits.

Paxton Manor, aka Carlheim Manor, is a 140-year-old mansion that has long had the reputation of being haunted. See for yourself….if you dare.

Stocktober has four levels of terror. You’ll need to sign a waiver before you enter. Be prepared to climb stairs and squeeze through places with little or no light. In some places, it will be super dark. You’ll go from room to room with every room being a scarier experience. Zombies, ghouls, and monsters will be waiting around every corner.

Horror comes to life in Carlheim Manor. Animatronic spirits will send chills up and down your spine.

The manor itself has a dark and ominous presence. Your heart will be pounding as you go from room to room. The fear factor is phenomenal.

The basement is the scariest part of the manor. You’ll experience a sense of pure terror as you descend the stairs. Murderous clowns reign in the basement and they are determined to let no one get out alive.

If you are afraid this will be too scary for you, you can purchase a “no scare” chicken glow necklace at the door for $5. Wear this and you will not be “targeted” by the ghouls and zombies.

If you survive your trek through Carlheim Manor, you can visit the food, wine, and beer tent where local Loudon County businesses will have food and beverages available for purchase. There is also a video wall that is perfect for videos and pictures.
