The Eastern State Penitentiary is spooky on any normal day. After all, it housed some of Philadelphia's most notorious criminals in its heyday. But in the weeks before Halloween, the former prison nestled in the heart of bustling Fairmount emits even more creepy vibes. That's because Terror Behind the Walls is happening.

Every year, the Eastern State Penitentiary transforms into one of the most horrifying haunted houses in the entire Philly area. Live actors lurk behind every turn, jumping out from prison cells and lunging at you from shadowy nooks. Only buy a ticket to Terror Behind the Walls if you're ready to be truly frightened! The haunted house will continue to welcome guests through November 5th, so there's still time to experience the fright.
