View Full Version : Pennurst Asylum

08-11-2010, 10:31 PM
Work is under way for a new Haunted Attraction In Pennsylvania. Pennhurst Asylum, built on the remains of the Pennhurst State Mental institution. It should prove to be one of the greatest attractions on the east coast. Check out our website at www.pennursstasylum.com
This is a production created by the Bates Motel crew.

man if that wasn't 12 hours away I would be there. Might just have to fly out there next year.

I will definitely be checking it out. Really enjoyed our visit to Bates last year and can only imagine what great things are in store for the guests at the asylum.

My opinion is that this is a must see!

channel 10 news philadelphia reporting locals and others rebelling against building a haunted attraction at this site because of all of the REAL torture and horrible treatment that patients endured there back in the 70's. Hey, go after the state and the losers that were SUPPOSED to be giving these poor people care. Don't blame the new owners. That place sat there for YEARS untouched and was a dangerous place to anyone who entered (saftey risk). Now that people are trying to do some GOOD, like creating jobs and doing SOMETHING CONSTRUCTIVE with the property, they are being ridiculed for building a haunt there. the station running the story is NBC 10 in philly. search pennhurst asylum. check it out.

There is no such thing as bad publicity they say. with them complaining about it it just give free marketing to the haunt.

THAT'S THE WAY IT WILL WORK OUT. I wish Randy Bates and his ownership crew and his entire staff only the BEST here. The Bates Motel has kicked my ass every time I went there. A hayride beyond compare and the house, well, you gotta see it. Cornmaze is fun too. If Pennhurst is ANYTHING like the BATES, (with the pennhurst awesome size and tunnels) it will be one of the most desired haunted attractions to visit anywhere. I can't wait until September.

Can't wait to check out Pennhurst and The Bates Motel this year. The place looks awesome!

I would advertise the old asylum as having a Pennhurst inmates and guards reunion, sort of like a high school reunion sort of a thing.
"Hi howya doing?"
"I remember you! You ate all the lead paint from your cell wall and got a disability check."
"What have you been doing with yourself?"
"GRRR! I got married, these are my kids, "ggrr!" grrrr!" gR!" and GRRRRRROWEL! Show the nice man your teeth kids!"
"AAWWWW! Ouch! Stop them! owww!"

Now, we didn't bring any napkins so lick each other's faces nice and clean, kids."
