NEPA’s Haunted Hayrides & Spooky Walk-Throughs Deliver All the Frights
Parents pack their children into mini-vans assuring them it’s not going to be THAT scary. Noisy teenagers fill out the lines – some eager, some visibly shaking. A fearful anticipation looms over the queue as occasional screams cut through the hushed murmuring.
Behind the scenes, dozens of dedicated volunteers, actors and artists work tirelessly to create a memorable experience. The costumes get scarier every year, and the sets always end up creepier than before. And yet, we keep coming back, even though we swore we never would.
Because when our heart rates return to normal, we realize that we just had the time of our lives. And, once it’s all over, we can sit back, enjoy a hot chocolate and have a good laugh at all of the first-timers. Don’t worry. You’ll know them when you see them.
Get in the spirit of the spooky season at one of NEPA’s popular haunted attractions!
NEPA Halloween Haunts:
Circle of Screams
Dickson City, PA
Any other time of year, it’s just a simple, old-fashioned drive-in movie theater, but, every fall, Dickson City’s Circle Drive-in is crawling with ghouls and freaks. This season’s haunt is “Demons of the Manor,” a hair-raising walk-through of a haunted estate.
Halls of Horror
This haunted attraction is so hardcore and gory that if you’re under 18, you need a parent’s signature to attend. The walk-through is interactive, which means that the actors will touch and grab you.
You’ll be shaking in your shoes at Hellstead Manor. This Victorian mansion is crawling with monsters and ghouls. Even more scares await outside in the woodland walk-through.
West Nanticoke, PA
As one of the oldest haunted walk-through attractions in the region, Horror Hall has been dishing out scares for over 30 years. And every year brings something new to the innovative fright fest.
Hotel of Horror
Terror awaits behind every door at the Hotel of Horror. Experience the frights from three different attractions. Face your fears in their terrifying walk-throughs and just tell yourself it’s all part of the act… or is it?
Scott Twp., PA
Reaper’s Revenge has five attractions rolled into one terrifying, 90-minute experience. Take the Haunted Hayride deep in the woods, face the clowns and freaks of the Lost Carnival walk-through and find your way through the 3D Delirium attraction. You’ll still have to cross through Pitch Black and the post-apocalyptic Sector 13 to make it out alive.
Waldorf Estate of Fear
Check in to this horrifying hotel on the grounds of Lehighton’s Waldorf Estate of Fear. Then, test your fate in the Terror in the Corn outdoor walking trail or the zombie apocalypse escape rooms.
