PA Haunted House HIGHLIGHTS: Pennhurst Asylum was created in the old Administration building of the once beautiful Pennhurst Home for the Feeble Minded and Epyleptic, a State run mental facility that was shut down in 1984 for patient abuse. The buildings sat and rotted for the next 25 years. The Bates Motel Production team designed and built a high action haunted attraction that fits the hospital theme. Pennhurst Asylum features many items and artifacts that were part of the original State School. Located on the upper floors of the old Administration building, which dates to 1908, this attraction features a combination of high tech animatronics, digital sound and motivated actors, as well as fine detail and realism. We have added lots of new props, and made many changes for the 2012 season. Featured on the Travel Channel, Ghost Adventures and the Discovery Channel. Whats amazing about this location is that it is really haunted!
The Dungeon of Lost Souls features a labyrinth of old cells, drafty halls and a series of human experiments that have gone horribly wrong. This show includes CGI special effects, illusions, great detail and amazing actors
The Tunnel Terror attraction takes you through a 900 foot long gauntlet underneath the grounds of the old State School, first named Pennhurst Home for the Feeble Minded and Epileptic. Upgraded with amazing catacombs, new sets and scares, this attraction is guaranteed to produce screams.
The final attraction, called Ghost Hunt, is a self guided tour of the Mayflower Building, reportedly the most active of all the locations on the campus, and featured on Ghost Adventures and Ghost Hunters. Armed with only a flashlight, visitors are allowed to wander through the dormitory, left just as it was 26 years ago, and search for spirits on their own.
