The Theatre of the Lost Souls:
The Virginia Theatre was built 100 years ago by a fan of picture films. It’s modern equipment and elaborate scale seemed out of place in a small town like Shelley, but it never seemed out of place to the community. Many people remember seeing older movies there with friends and working there. But the theatre still has a long and mysterious history, and has gone through many different owners over the century. One of these owners includes a bearded man who used to house venomous snakes and spiders in it before he mysteriously vanished. In the 1990’s the theatre was closed, but was renovated and reopened to show community plays and host events. During the Halloween season it hosts our very own “The Theatre of the Lost Souls!” The perfect setting for a Haunted Attraction; the theater still has a lot of it’s original housing such as the old stage and molding, the lightbox room and even the old coal furnaces under the stage.

Its old age is not all that makes this theater creepy, there are plenty of local stories that leave people convinced it is ACTUALLY haunted. Not too far into running our attraction, our volunteers, friends and even some guests started reporting their ghostly sightings. There have been sightings of dark shadows, a little girl in white, a tall man with a beard, and an old lady sitting in an auditorium chair. People have also reported hearing strange whispers, and crashes and seeing bright orbs caught on film. Do you dare visit amongst all these other ghostly visitors?

The Hospital of the Lost Souls:
Anyone who’s ever lived in the town of Shelley knows there’s an old building on State St with the words “Hospital” still visible at the top. The building was built in 1903 and has played several roles in the community such as, restaurant, club, and room and board, but perhaps the greatest mystery is when it was a hospital from 1909 to 1926. Few people around today can remember any patient stories from the old hospital, but It still shows many signs of once being one.

It has the old dumb waiter, an old, creaky hospital ward with a hallway full of rooms and floral wallpaper. The musty, dark basement was heated by a coal furnace with very little light to guide the workers. And perhaps the eeriest of all, is the old surgical room upstairs with it’s sink still standing.

The building still stands strong after surviving a fire, vandalism, weather, and time. In 2016, it was purchased and renovated by “Lost Souls Attractions” right at the 10 year anniversary mark of “The Theatre of the Lost Souls.” The team is working hard and long to bring to you -yet another- of the scariest haunted attractions in East Idaho, “The Hospital of the Lost Souls!” Email Haunt Owner

Review This Haunt
  • Email Verified Worth the visit

    This place is worth more than $10 admission fee. Amazing actors with never die attitude to scare me. Full of crawling, lot of steep stairs and tight places. I Loved it! However, the climbs and crawls may not be suited for all ages.

    The theatre setting will get to you.. it is super creepy, and the actors scare you out of your wits all the time.. I and my friends visited the place and I was startled off my feet more than once.. now I plan to bring my GF along.. I would recommend this place to people visiting Southeast Idaho.

  • Email Verified True horror site

    Went with a couple of mates and enjoyed the horror at every turn inside the house. Awesome actors in perfect frightening outfits to snarl the heart impounding fears on us. Detailed design, splendid animatronics and special effects with a lot of steep slopes and turns to portray a true image of horror site. Reasonable admission fee and well-behaved staffs. Will surely visit again.

  • Email Verified Scary and only scary

    Scary and only scary. Incredible theme inside the house with a perfect blend of special effects and lighting. Highly professional actors, especially the little sweet girl in white dress who never came out of her character. Got the fast pass tickets to skip the queue and spent around an hour of horrific moments with ghosts. Hats off to organizers for bringing such an amazing haunted place in Idaho.

  • Email Verified Bad experience

    Very bad experience. They allow big group to go in at one. Our group was around 15 including small children. The kids ruined the whole fun. I recommend 5 to 6 people at a time.

  • Email Verified Scariest haunt experience

    It was one of the scariest haunt experiences I had till date.. came with wife, and she screamed at every scare we encountered.. she was holding on to my hand all the time.. actors all did a great job and both haunts were eerily designed to perfection.. the basement gives you the scare of your lives. Not suited for small children though.

  • Email Verified Full of creepy and scary stuffs

    Outstanding performance by actors. We went on Thursday in a group of four and took the general admission tickets. The queue wasn’t long, may be due to weekday and we get inside the house in a few minutes. True to their names, the inside ambience is full of creepy and scary stuffs with actors appearing in very frightening costumes and makeups. Loved the inside theme and whispers to crap us out. We screamed, yelled and ran from one extreme to other. Very well-behaved staffs. Overall a great experience.

  • Email Verified Hospital was pretty scary

    The hospital was pretty scary.. there was limited visibility in many places, not to mention you also got to crawl in certain places.. the eerie feeling you get as you walk through the structure.. I have not felt it anywhere else to be honest.. check it out if you are a fan of haunts..

  • Email Verified It was terrible

    I went here two years ago and it was pretty good. This year it was terrible! It was not scary at all. Lots of climbs and crawling will make you mad. Don’t go.

  • Incredible

    This place is well worth the $10. Best haunted house I have ever been to! Lots of crawling, steep stairs, and tight spaces! But well worth the money.
