Haunted House at Eastern State Pen Named #1 in US
Al Capone served time here at one point. This penitentiary has been extensively documented for paranormal activity on such channels as Discovery, Travel Channel, and even MTV shot an episode in there. There's no question that abnormal things occur within those halls.
I think I have an excuse now to get over there (since it's in the North Philadelphia section of the city) to shoot some pictures. And of course share with you guys at NP those exclusive images and a report. Check back later this weekend :)
Philadelphia's favorite haunted house is now America's favorite haunted house.
"Terror Behind The Walls" at Eastern State Penitentiary has been named the number one haunted house in the US by AOL's "City Guide."
Sean Kelly is program director at the former prison at 22nd and Fairmount:
"We've been the best for a long time. It just took a while for people to notice."
I went through a new section of Terror Behind the Walls. Frankly, I think they need a new word for terrifying. This woman went through the exhibit with me:
"Very, very scary. My heart is racing. My heart is racing. I'm shaking."
