Prepare to be scared silly in Philly this Halloween

Book a trip to America’s most haunted city, Philadelphia, for a spook-tacular range of Halloween happenings this October and November. This historic US city does Halloween like none other and 2013 is no exception with a host of new ghostly happenings set to petrify even the most hardened of young and old souls.

Those wanting to ‘Halloween’ American style can go to town on dressing up and visiting Philadelphia’s most terrifying attractions including ‘Terror Behind The Walls’ at Eastern State Penitentiary and the ‘Bates Motel’, home to one of the scariest horror movies of all time - Alfred Hitchcock’s, Psycho. Or for the less brave, a Ghost Tour of Philadelphia will take you on a candlelit walking tour of the city.

Ghost Tours of Philadelphia – October to November 2013
A long-time local favourite, these walking tours travel off the beaten path and into the shadows of Independence Park and Society Hill. The 90 minute tours are led by costumed guides whose spine tingling tales of ghostly apparitions and shenanigans will leave you feeling completely spooked. Tickets costs form £10 per adult and £6 per child (aged four – 12).

Terror Behind The Walls at Eastern State Penitentiary – October to November 2013
America’s first prison becomes downright horrifying and transforms into one of the USA’s most popular haunted attractions. The abandoned prison, a national historic landmark, is constantly investigated for its paranormal visions and now features eerie Hollywood-style sets, 200 gruesome actors, custom-designed props, animatronics and digital sound effects. The attraction remains open throughout October and November. Tickets cost from £8 - £24 per person.

Horrorfest at Shady Brook Farm – October to November 2013
Visit America’s most haunted farm every weekend until 2 November. Located in a dark corner of Pennsylvania, brave visitors can experience four Halloween-themed adventures: the Hayride of Horror, Barn of Horror, 3-D Alien Encounter and the eerie attraction they call ‘Carnage’. Get spooked in the haunted barn or, for the less brave, hop on a haunted hayride or hit up the Pumpkin Fest. Can’t decide which ones to do? Get the RIP package and see all of them. Tickets cost form £12 - £31 per person.

Bates Motel – October to November 2013
Rated as one of America’s most horrific haunts, this Hitchcock inspired attraction will frighten you to your bones, ensuring that you never book into a motel again. If the mayhem and terror inside aren’t enough, a 25 minute heart-pounding Hayride through the dark forest of Arasapha Farm, filled with huge detailed sets, giant monsters and pyrotechnics will do the trick, as will the lurking zombies and creatures in the Haunted Corn Maze. Tickets cost form £9 - £46 per person.
