USA Today named this central Pa. attraction one of the best haunted houses in the nation
- Updated: Oct. 10, 2023, 5:56 p.m. |
- Published: Oct. 10, 2023, 4:01 p.m.
Field of Screams was one of the highest-ranked "haunted houses" in a voter poll, according to USA Today. Vicki Vellios Briner | Special to PennLive Vicki Vellios Briner | Special to PennLive
- Sean Adams | [email protected]
The votes are in, and the results are clear: Pennsylvania haunted houses have dominated the list of 10 best scary destinations in the nation.
A new list from USA Today has ranked the “10 best haunted houses in the US,” as selected by voters in a USA Today poll. And three of those 10 are located in the Keystone State. Florida, with two entries, was the only other state to earn more than one spot on the top 10.
And when it comes to where those entries ranked, Pennsylvania has even more reason to be proud of our brand of spooky destinations.
The Halloween Nights attraction at Philadelphia’s famously unnerving Eastern State Penitentiary took the 10th spot, with the USA Today story noting that “the crumbling ruins stand empty, but they return to life during Halloween Nights. Come each spooky season, visitors who dare can test their bravery in five haunted houses, learn about the prison’s past on historic tours, and drink their fears away in themed bars and lounges.”
Then, in ninth place, came the Bates Motel and Haunted Hayride of Glen Mills.
“Located just outside Philadelphia on Arasapha Farm, the Bates Motel offers an incredible experience of terror and mayhem,” the USA Today story reads, adding that the “new level of horror” offered by the motel is paired with “detailed Hollywood-style sets and props” on the haunted hayride.
But a nearby haunted attraction was way up near the top, grabbing the second place spot. And that is none other than Mountville’s own Field of Screams.
“At Field of Screams in Mountville, Pennsylvania, visitors can choose from four terrifying experiences: the Haunted Hayride, two haunted houses (Den of Darkness and Frightmare Asylum), and the Nocturnal Wasteland, a fear-filled forest,” reads the story. “If you think your heart can take it, you can try to conquer all four during your visit.”
We at the PennLive office know all too well how creepy Field of Screams can be, as some of their characters usually make their way here once fall rolls around . For more info on Field of Screams, including info on hours and prices, you can check out this story for details:
