One of the best things about the Old Courthouse Catacombs and the House of Lecter is that they are just two blocks apart. You can purchase a combo ticket for both haunted houses and then spend the evening going back and forth, visiting both as many times as you would like in a night.

Some of the dearly departed who were laid to rest in the unmarked tombs were buried pre-maturely and they will RISE AGAIN when the bells ring!
