‘Terror Behind The Walls’ Opens This Weekend

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – With Halloween right around the  corner, Eastern State Penitentiary in Fairmount opened it’s annual haunted attraction fundraiser this weekend. KYW Newsradio‘s John McDevitt went through Terror Behind the Walls.

Its the 20th year for Terror Behind the Walls. It’s six scare zones in one big show.

Eldon was visiting from Los Angeles.

“You never really know what’s coming up behind the wall and they really surprise you. Although they don’t touch you they yell a lot, but it was fun. My favorite part was the infirmary part. That was really creepy.”

There are After Dark VIP flashlight history tours of the penitentiary available before going into the haunted attraction.

Fright and a bite dinner packages that include dinner at area restaurants and front-of-the-line tickets to the show are available. Terror Behind The Walls is open on selected nights now into November.
