13th Floor Haunted House

If one door closes and another door opens, chances are your house is…HAUNTED! Ranked as one of the top 5 scariest haunted houses in the country by USA Today, The 13th Floor Haunted House is Jacksonville’s iconic holiday attraction.

Even building owners who are not themselves superstitious realize that the desirability of units on the 13th floor might be compromised because of superstitious tenants, or commercial tenants who worry about losing superstitious customers. The house was affectionately dubbed The 13th Floor because of the number being synonymous with unlucky and sometimes creepy events. The legend states that “Based on an internal review of records, the Otis Elevators company estimates that 85% of the buildings with their elevators do not have a named 13th floor.”
