West Virginia Penitentiary


Join Pitt Program Council on a trip to the West Virginia Penitentiary to experience one of the scariest places behind bars! Students will experience Dungeons of Horror and the North Walk.

Dungeons of Horror: Experience the fright of being locked in a cell, the fear of being lost in a maze, and the terror of an eerie walk through the dungeon of horrors!

North Walk: The North Walk is a flashlight tour of an area that was once considered one of the bloodiest institutions in the nation. It will take you through the oldest part of the former West Virginia Penitentiary, where the most dangerous inmates were housed. It is also known as the area with the most paranormal activity, a place where murders, violence, and brutality were common everyday occurrences.

The Dungeon of Horrors does contain the use of strobe lights, fog machines, enclosed areas, and several actors/mechanics to abruptly frighten you. If you have a medical condition that is triggered by any of the aforementioned, we strongly suggest that you do NOT attend. The Dungeon of Horrors is NOT wheelchair/stroller accessible. There are tight areas and staircases. Expect to encounter LIVE BATS.
The North Walk is NOT wheelchair/stroller accessible. There are multiple staircases utilized on this tour.

Tickets go on sale in the WPU ticket office on Monday, October 1st. Limit of tickets per person: 2 – both must be Pitt Oakland undergraduate students.

All Pitt Program Council events are open to all Pitt undergraduate students with a valid (Oakland) Student ID.
