The Manoir of Paris
Who has not dreamed of visiting a real haunted house? A house filled with all the monsters that hid under our beds when we were children or made us scream watching television …
Well this house is in Paris! And I’m not talking about a fairground attraction made out of cardboard, but a real immersion in the heart of over 1000m2 filled with Hollywood sets and monsters played by more than 30 actors, who will recreate for you the spinechilling legends of Paris …
This project was created by an American, Adil Houthi, who has already set up two haunted houses in the United States. He decided to revitalise an abandoned place in the capital: the old pottery shops in Choisy-le-Roy, located in the 10th district of Paris, Gare de l’Est neighbourhood.
Opened in 2011, the principle is based on the recreation and discovery of the greatest and scariest legends of Paris through a tour, which is not for the faint of heart. At the opening, there were 13 “legend attractions” to discover, many of which you will have heard of…
13 legends of the Manoir de Paris:
- The Paris Catacombs
- The Crocodile from the Paris Sewers
- The Phantom of the Opera
- The Prison of the Iron Mask
- The Vampires Cave
- The Paris Underground
- The Père-Lachaise Cemetery
- The Phantom of the Tuileries Gardens
- The Alchemist’s Library
- The Murderous Pastry Chef
- The Assassins Cabaret
- Gargoyles and Chimeras
- The Hunchback of Notre-Dame
Since its opening, new attractions/discoveries of legends have been added:
- The Desecrated Graves of Sergeant Bertrand
- La Voisin (Catherine Deshaye) – Poisoner and Witch
- The Murderous Barber
This tour may sometimes be replaced by a “special” tour, as was the case in 2013 during Halloween.
