Human remains of millions of Parisians lie 135 feet underground at the Paris Catacombs (Les Catacombes). The 14th arrondissement attraction doesn't appeal to all, but for those who are interested, here’s how to make the most of this subterranean experience.
Le Manoir de Paris
Le Manoir de Paris is an immersive and interactive haunted house dedicated to the city’s most macabre characters. Walk through the theater’s terrifyingly real sets as a troupe of actors in scary costumes and makeup reenact crimes and misdeeds, and try their best to make you scream.
18 Rue de Paradis, Paris, Ile de France, 75010
Monsters greet you as you enter, preparing you for the terror that lurks inside. Walk through the three-storey house to experience “Legends of Paris,” an all-sensory show that features 13 scary figures from folklore including the Bloody Baker, the Phantom of the Opera, and the Hunchback of Notre-Dame, and scary locations such as the catacombs and the sewers where crocodiles roam. End the journey on the top floor at Le Royal Hotel Paradis where more surprises await. Beat the typically long lines with a Fastpass ticket that includes the price of admission.

When to Get There
The theater is open Friday night, with longer hours on Saturday and Sunday afternoons and evenings. Halloween is celebrated throughout October and November, with over 100 actors performing fresh presentations. Come on any Friday the 13th or Valentine's Day when the house is immersed in total darkness.
Le Manoir de Paris is fortuitously situated for nighttime entertainment. Set within the right bank district of Grands Boulevards, a lively neighborhood named after the area’s eight palatial, tree-lined boulevards. Packed with classic brasseries and bars, you can easily find a place for a drink and a meal before the show—and a popular nightclub after the show. The district is also famous for its beautiful glass covered shopping arcades.
