Guests include Halloween Haunted Attraction owners and actors; including special effect artists and makeup artists from various movies and haunted attractions across the United States. The Blood Prison Shakedown Studios is located within The Ohio State Reformatory, that Blood Prison calls its Halloween home. The Ohio State Reformatory, in Mansfield, Ohio, is the film site of the iconic film, The Shawshank Redemption.
The Ohio State Reformatory is currently open Thursday-Sunday, from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm*
*Except major holidays, like Thanksgiving, and some blackout dates. Please see calendar.
The Ohio State Reformatory offers only abbreviated tours from September 6th-November 15th due to the Blood Prison Haunted House setup. During this time, there will be no access to solitary confinement, the lower levels of the cell blocks, or the showers. The North Central Ohio Industrial Museum is closed as well. If you want to see these locations, please plan your visit for either before September 6th or after November 15th. All guided tours will still be 90 minutes long and will become a combination of Hollywood Meets History and Beyond the Bars locations.
