For $666, You Can Spend Halloween Eve in a Recreated Alcatraz Jail Cell


Looking for hair-raising Halloween plans? If dungeon-themed haunted houses aren’t scary enough for you, a tourist attraction in San Francisco is offering visitors the chance to spend the night in a simulation of the city’s infamous Alcatraz prison, according to Money.

Located on Fisherman’s Wharf, the San Francisco Dungeon recreates local history and legends using sets, special effects, and actors. Now, locals and visitors alike can pay $666 to reserve a private overnight stay in the Dungeon’s "Ghosts of Alcatraz Suite"—a reconstructed jail cell that accommodates up to four people—on October 30 and October 31.

The cell includes four twin beds, pajamas, midnight snacks, and a spooky bedtime story from a “dungeon resident.” Breakfast is also provided the next morning, along with a goody bag.

This isn’t the first macabre experience offered by The San Francisco Dungeon: As Eater San Francisco reports, the group also launched a pop-up “rat cafĂ©” in 2017. A parody of cat cafes, the rodent-themed eatery allowed patrons to play with rats in a basement, following a light meal of coffee, tea, and pastries.

Sleepover reservations for the Ghosts of Alcatraz suite will be accepted starting Friday, October 13, at 10:13 a.m. EST. They’re available on a first-come, first-serve basis, so book your stay early through Booking.com if you’re curious about what it would be like to spend a night locked up in the Big House.
