Unhinged: Nightshade’s Curse

The year is 1949 and the estate has changed hands several times since the passing of Sarah Winchester. Its most recent isolation is broken by the arrival of Madame Nightshade, an entrepreneurial owner of a small traveling carnival and self-proclaimed investigator of supernatural phenomena. She has convinced the owners of the Winchester Estate to set up her show for 13 nights.

Madam Nightshade’s takeover includes self-guided haunted tours through the world’s most infamous home. Local residents are inexplicably drawn to Madame Nightshades’ Spirit Carnival and the House of Mystery. An evening at a vintage traveling carnival where food, drinks, and roaming sideshow entertainment await…but is all what it seems? Guests will be left to wonder who called them to the house—Madame Nightshade and her band of carnies or the restless spirits of the Winchester Mystery House?

Madame Nightshade’s Spirit Carnival

The Spirits have called to one and all. Wander the Midway and play games of chance and skill. Stop into the Tent of Mystery to hear your fortune. Be horrified by M. Nightshade’s Cabinet of Oddities and Curiosities, her collection of truly haunting, unsettling objects. Finally, you will come upon the dark beating heart of The Midway and the proprietor herself, Madame Nightshade. Included with your tickets.

Spookeasy Bar

The Spookeasy Bar (21+) offers enchanting elixirs and blood curdling cocktails all nights of Unhinged: Nightshade’s Curse. Cafe 13 in the main courtyard will serve a variety of delicious food and dessert items for guests looking to grab a bite before or after the show. Bar access included with your tickets.

Axe Throwing + Shooting Gallery

Axe Throwing at the Stables and Sarah’s Attic Shooting Gallery are also available for an additional fee.
