Le Manoir de Paris is France’s first haunted walkthrough show entirely dedicated to Paris’ bloodiest characters. Set in the former Choisy-le-Roi pottery shop – a historic graded building, which stands over what used to be a leprosarium - the interactive display features 30 actors reenacting the City of Lights’ darkest moments, aided by terrifying costumes and sets. Le Manoir de Paris features two adventures; the first one, called Legends of Paris, is a two-storey experience featuring 13 of the capital’s scariest figures (including the Bloody Baker, the Phantom of the Opera, and the Hunchback of Notre-Dame). The second show, named Asylum, is about a rather unconventional treatment clinic.
Manoir de Paris is not advised for pregnant women, people with heart conditions, or visitors suffering from epilepsy.
Manoir de Paris is located in Paris’ 10th arrondissement; it can be reached on foot from several metro stations, including Poissonniere (line 7), Bonne Nouvelle (lines 8, 9), Gare de l'Est (lines 4, 5, 7); visitors should know that it is not advised to get to Manoir de Paris by car as parking is scarce and complicated, and there is no parking on site. Manoir de Paris is open from 6 pm to 10 pm on Fridays and from 3 pm to 7 pm on Saturdays and Sundays; it is closed from Monday to Thursday. Tickets cost €25 per adult and €20 per child over the age of 10.
