Halloween daytripping this year is high on our agenda. For my readers in CT, NY and PA I found a TERRIFYINGLY haunted spot that frankly I’d be afraid to visit no matter WHAT time of year. Philly’s Eastern State Penitentiary is an historic landmark, having housed Al Capone and other notorious criminals that has been transformed into SIX terrifying haunted attractions.
Terror Behind the Walls, America’s largest haunted house, is located inside the massive, castle-like walls of Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This extraordinary theatrical production, consistently ranked among the top haunted attractions in the nation, runs select evenings from September 18 through November 7, 2015.
Terror Behind the Walls begins with a critical decision for visitors: should they explore the prison and watch the action, or should they mark themselves to truly interact with the denizens of the cellblocks? Those who opt in for true interactivity may be grabbed, held back, sent into hidden passageways, removed from their group, and even incorporated into the show. They will deal with the consequences of their decision through six long attractions.
The setting for Terror Behind the Walls is perfect for a haunted attraction.. Eastern State Penitentiary was once the most famous and expensive prison in the world, but stands today in ruin, a lost world of crumbling cellblocks and empty guard towers. This gothic structure, with soaring 30-foot high fortress walls, is intimidating enough during the day. At night, the cellblocks fall into darkness, and the building becomes truly terrifying.
