The 13th Door has quite the story behind it. What’s a haunted house without some history right?

The Barrington Hotel was owned by Denver Millionaire John Barrington. On one October night in 1912, he was throwing his annual All Hallows Eve party in the Hotel’s Penthouse suite.

Andrew Barrington, John Barrington’s nephew,  had a gambling problem and owed quite a few people money. Andrew came to the hotel that night to ask for some money and his uncle refused and threw him out of the hotel. Andrew came back later in the evening, blocked all of the exits and started a fire. The party guests were locked inside and Andrew was never to be found.

Only one person survived the tragedy because he found…The 13th Door.

If YOU want to survive this haunted house, you have to find the 13th Door. You can read more about the legend here.
