Eastern State Penitentiary’s “Terror Behind Walls”


Eastern State Penitentiary’s famous Terror Behind Walls haunted house is back for its 25th season on Friday, September 18th. The frightening production will run during the Halloween season through November.

Terror Behind Walls is a haunted house production that takes place in an already so-called haunted building. The Eastern State Penitentiary was once the most famous and most expensive prisons in the U.S., and has been reported as being haunted since the 1940s. Terror Behind Walls has repeatedly won awards as the one of the most terrifying haunted houses in the U.S. Visitors can choose opt-in to an interactive experience that could include being grabbed, pulled, or even taken away from their groups.

Terror Behind Walls is a quick walk, bike, or drive from Apartments at 1220. Eastern State Penitentiary sits in the middle of Fairmount’s neighborhood in Philadelphia. Buy tickets on Eastern State Penitentiary’s website here.
