Local Haunted House Attractions in South-Eastern Pennsylvania
Explore an abandoned penitentiary at night. Back inside Cell Block Seven, a crumbling, haunting building 165 years old, there is a supernatural trial under way. You are the jury. Your group's verdict - "guilty" or "innocent" will determine your experience for the rest of the evening. You may well find the tables turned, yourselves on trial, here inside an abandoned prison at night. What's with the life-sized voodoo doll? It's not what you think.... And what about that long, dark maze of corridors? And why do the guards look so nervous?
The "Terror behind the Walls" experience lasts about forty minutes, and features state-of-the-art interactive special effects, lighting and sound.
"The Keys to Al Capone's Cell"
Chicago gangster “Scarface” Al Capone spent eight months in relative luxury in Eastern State Penitentiary’s “Park Avenue” suite of cells in 1929 and 1930. He was serving time on his first criminal conviction, carrying a concealed deadly weapon. He was later convicted of tax evasion and sent to Alcatraz. His cell is one of the most popular tourist stops at both Eastern State Penitentiary Historic Site and at Alcatraz.
