NFPA’s Backyards & Beyond Wildland Fire Education Conference runs from October 27-29 and that means Halloween will be in the air. After a day of education sessions, networking and presentations, attendees are sure to get into the Halloween spirit with more thrills that await at The 13th Door, a haunted house located just 10 minutes outside Denver.
The 13th Door is based on the legend of Andrew Barrington, a troubled child from a well-to-do family who was raised by his uncle after his father died unexpectedly. As Andrew grew older, he developed a gambling problem and often went to his uncle for money. When Andrew finally got cut off, he crashed his uncle’s All Hallows Eve party in the penthouse suite of the Barrington Hotel and murdered guests one by one. Only one party-goer survived, and they claimed to have escaped through “The 13th Door.”
The 13th Door is set in the infamous Barrington Hotel, where the ghosts of slain party guests such as Bobby Bones, Chef Boyardead, and the Deadutaunts still roam. If you’re not careful, you just might run into the killer himself.
The 13th Door is open 7 – 11 p.m. on Thursdays and 7 p.m. – 12 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. Parking is free, and admittance is $15.95 per person with special grouping prices available. To learn more about The 13th Door, watch their video.
