As every October and November since 2013, this mansion built in 1910 by Italian architect Enrique Choistry, is transformed into a set of horror stories and characters that have scared us in movies or in TV series.

Do you want to celebrate the Day of the Dead in Mexico City?

This year, Horror Land presents a series of new tours, such as the one inspired by the Warren Files, Annabelle, a dizzying experience in the dolls’ room where the famous possessed doll hides. Likewise, one the bravest will dare to cross the old abandoned circus guarded by the legendary Pennywise, based on the novel It by Stephen King. Finally, part of the tour will lead you to the psychiatric hospital Briarcliff Manor, from one of the most terrifying TV series in recent times, American Horror Story: Asylum, whose evil sisters will do the impossible for your soul to stay forever in the hospital.

The basic terror tour lasts for 30 minutes and, if you visit the Asylum section (at an extra cost) it will last for at least 45 minutes more, depending on the time you take to solve the puzzles you find on your way.

As safety measures, attendees are never touched by the actors, except in one case: Key Horror, an extreme terror experience in which they can touch you and fill you with blood. You can abandon the tour anytime by following the directions from the staff.

Have you heard about the town in Mexico haunted by witches?

Inside the mansion, there will be special areas where you can take pictures and have snacks.

The mansion
In 2012, the estate was used as the main setting for the film “The Echo of Fear,” which told the story of a spirit that haunts a house and is based on real events. At the beginning of the 90s, the mansion was used and restored by Sullivan’s Funeral Home for its operations. France House and its neighbor are the only chalets that survive from the early Colonia Moderna in Guadalajara. For long, visitors and neighbors assert to have seen supernatural manifestations near the mansion.

Useful information
The cost of the tour goes from MXN $180 to $330 per person. You can get your tickets via Ticketmaster.
