The crew behind the massively popular Shocktober haunted house on the Paxton campus in Leesburg, will be back this week to offer a Valentine’s Day scare. 

My Bloody Valentine on Feb. 14 and Feb. 15 is a self-guided tour through love-wrecked horrors inside Carlheim manor. This PG-13 experience is a “sequel” to the award-winning Shocktober and generates revenue for The Arc of Loudoun. Shocktober is a major production with more than 14,000 visitors touring the 32-rooms of terror and more than 450 volunteers working on the production last year.  

All proceeds from the event benefit The Arc of Loudoun, a nonprofit that advocates for, educates, serves and supports people with disabilities, as well as their families, caretakers, and the professionals who work with them through its integrated programs: The Aurora School, Open Door Learning Center Preschool, ALLY “A Life Like Yours” Advocacy Center, Aurora Behavior Clinic, and Ability Fitness Center. Learn more at

Tours will be offered from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. both nights. General admission tickets are $35 online and $40 at the gate; Special Valentine’s Two-For tickets are $60. 

All parking is located at Tuscarora High School, 801 N. King St, with a free shuttle provided.
