As visitors cautiously explore the chilling remains of the Pennhurst State School, vile smells and a sense of fear permeate the air. The Old Administration Building, a central part of Pennhurst Asylum, promises an aggressive, nonstop entry into an insane nightmare during the “Bloody Valentine” event. Signifying a departure from conventional haunted houses, major changes have been undertaken to extend the first portion of the haunt and intensify its atmosphere.
The fear is very “real” at Pennhurst and any sense of complacency is quickly replaced by nonstop aggression that may not cater to every haunt fan that is looking for a mild scare. Pennhurst Asylum boldly declares itself as an in-your-face attraction, shedding the notion of a “friendly” haunted house. Pennhurst has undergone SIGNIFICANT large-scale scene improvements, redesigns and additions of terrifying elements that make this truly one of the premier horror/haunted house events in the country. For this special event; guests can purchase a VIP package, with a “high intensity” option, cocktails or gift for your loved one.
