Tulsa and Broken Arrow’s largest Haunted Attraction. With over 30,000 square feet of terrifying entertainment, The 13th Ward submerges you into a chaotic dimension, where savage patients run uncontrolled, and illusions are reality. It is here, under the guise of a rehabilitation facility, that Dr. Thaddeus Munck once subjected some of the world’s most disturbed criminals to illegal, mind-altering experiments and horrendous tortures. Now, these monsters of Dr. Munck’s creation wander in anguish, seeking their revenge for the torments they will forever suffer.
Make no mistake; The 13th Ward is not for the faint of heart. Enter Dr. Munck’s domain, cross the threshold into pandemonium, and lose your psyche to its own hallucinations. Surrounded by insanity, at The 13th Ward our goal is to make your blood scream, to leave your soul questioning existence and to bring nightmares to life.
From the moment you hit the parking lot, to the time we allow you to leave, The 13th Ward is truly a fun and exciting experience.
