Team White City Devils venture to Criminally Insane in Crown Point, Indiana for the 2020 season. Read their professional review on The Scare Factor!
It's that time of year the Old Jail and Sheriff's house takes a little break from ghost hunts, tours and the haunted house fun. We had an amazing year thanks to everyone who volunteered or came in for an event. It's time to start our 'to do' list so when we open again in 2021 we can invite the public to explore more of this incredible building and it's history. I can't tell you how much the Foundation appreciates the continued support and encouragement to keep history alive !
HAPPY HALLOWEEN !

Wow wow wow !!! Thanks for all the support for Criminally Insane !!! Opening weekend was amazing ! We are going to keep this Halloween Spirit rocking into the the next 3 weekends ! We could scare you all night long but as good neighbors to friends in our community we have to limit our ticket sales to 500 per night. One tickets are sold the line shuts down. Buy online and show up early ! We don't want to miss making you scream !!!!
We hope that this post will clear any rumors about Saturday night for Criminally Insane ~ we do realize the long lines and wait times for everyone attending and appreciate your patience while we try to give every single group a great experience ! Saturday night there was a situation that happened outside in the line. We hire CPPD as security and they advised us to shut down to assure the safety of everyone in line. It was devastating for us to make that decision but safety always comes first. We will honor all tickets purchased for Saturday on any of our remaining nights. We are working with CPPD to make changes and ensure the safety of everyone and make this the best Halloween event for all ! Criminally Insane is in it's 10th year and we appreciate all the support we have gotten over the years and want all your scares to come from us !
We closed the line off at 930pm due to the line size. Thank you everyone for your cooperation!.
Also it has been brought to our attention there is a lot of line cutting. We try our best to put on a fun environment for everyone. Please be courteous everyone else in line not to cut infront of others. We are trying our very best! Thank you!
Lastnight was Crazy Criminally Insane haunted house! We got a taste of it and now we want more! Come see us tonight at 7pm!
It is recommended to come very early to ensure you get in! Lines may need to be cut off to ensure everyone gets in before closing!
