Escape from Blood Prison

                 Think you can ESCAPE FROM BLOOD PRISON?

                Starting on October 12th, OSR will be taken over by the insane residents of Blood Prison:

                “The United States prison system is in disarray…The worst inmates all over the United States have escaped their respective institutions looking for a new place to call home. After numerous murder sprees and in some cases “Clown Sightings” across the nation, these psychopaths have found the destination they were looking for in Mansfield Ohio. Once known for filming movies and music videos, these crazed inmates have taken over and renamed it BLOOD PRISON! The authorities do not dare go after them as these extremely psychotic inmates have The Ohio State Reformatory locked down…but every Halloween they open up the gates and dare anyone to try and make it through this once famous prison…”

                With professional make-up, special effects, lighting, and crew of actors, Escape from Blood Prison is sure to terrify those brave enough to enter.

                Our gates open at 6 pm every Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from October 12th until November 5th, you’ll have plenty of chances to see what’s lurking inside the walls of OSR. On-site, you’ll find vendors, food trucks, and frights galore.

                Tickets can be purchased in advance online or when you arrive. General admission is $20 per person. If you’d like to skip some of the wait, the Speed Pass is $30 per person. With those two tickets, you can add an optional Touch Pass for $5. With the Touch Pass, Escape from Blood Prison gets even more interactive- the actors can reach out and touch you throughout the building. For the fastest admission and a complimentary Touch Pass, try the Lightning Pass for $40 per guest. Visit to purchase tickets in advance.

                As this event is pretty intense, it is only for those thirteen and up- and not for those with heart conditions, other health issues, or those who are pregnant. The route will twist and turn throughout the Reformatory and will be going up and down flights of stairs, down narrow halls, and across uneven floors- be advised that this is not a handicap accessible event.

                Group rates are available for groups of twenty or more- just email to make arrangements.

                And don’t forget to pick up a souvenir of from your time inside the walls of Blood Prison! Our newly renovated Museum Shop will be open and ready for business during the event.
