Terror Behind the Walls: Our Weekly Obsession

Terror Behind the Walls: Our Weekly Obsession

The terror is back!  Now, through November 8th, the historic Eastern State Penitentiary opens its gates for the Annual Terror Behind the Walls experience.  As one of the nation’s top-rated and largest haunted attractions, Terror Behind the Walls features quality special effects and lighting, digital sound, animatronic creatures, custom props and over 200 performers for a full on fright fest. 

The Eastern State Penitentiary is a former American prison located in Philadelphia’s Fairmount area.  It is situated on Fairmount Avenue between Corinthian Avenue and North 22nd Street, and was operational from 1829 until 1971.  The prison is currently a U.S. National Historic Landmark, which is open to the public as a museum for tours seven days a week, twelve months a year.

Each fall, the Penitentiary suits itself up for one of the most terrifying haunted attractions in the country.  Guests have multiple exhibits they must survive though, each one more terrifying than the previous.

New for 2014, Terror Behind the Walls unveils the most interactive attraction in the event’s 23-year history: Machine Shop. Visitors are led to a space that’s never been open to the public before deep within the cellblocks to experience industrial nightmares and unique one-on-one experiences that will surely stick with you.
