Where to Park for Eastern State Penitentiary’s Terror Behind the Walls
Usually when you’re in prison, it’s because you’ve committed a crime and have been deemed a menace to society, right? That’s far from the case with Eastern State Penitentiary’s Terror Behind the Walls where you pay for nightmares.
Here’s how it works — and it’s pretty simple: You pay the entrance fee, strut through the prison cell blocks and leave in a state of horror. Don’t believe us? See for yourself and check out the promo video here.
Each year Terror Behind the Walls raises hairs and scares the pants off of those brave enough to attend. It’s no wonder why it’s been featured on shows such as Ghost Hunters and Travel Channel’s Ghost Adventures. Luckily, if you can’t handle the horror, a friendly staff member can escort you out before turning another nightmarish corner.
Sound like your cup of tea? You can get a little appetizer of Terror Behind the Walls on September 18 and 19 before it goes into full throttle in October. Check out the dates and event FAQs here and remember — the zombies you run into aren’t real, but your nightmares will make you think otherwise.
Speaking of nightmares, we don’t want parking to be a part of them. We can help! Our 19th and Callowhill Streets parking lot is only a 13 minute walk from the gates of horror, but if our lot is filled by the time you arrive, don’t get scared. You can also use our parking locator to find a spot that’s best for you.
