5 thoughts on “ Haunted Houses in Pennsylvania for Halloween 2022 ”
I’ve been to Eastern State several times. It’s always a great time. You can usually find $5 off coupons.
I’ve been to Alot of these. Shocktoberfest, Reaper’s Revene and Hotel of Horror are all awesome. I found Dracula’s Forest disappointing personally. I’m checking out Bates Motel for the first time next weekend
Bates Motel and all their other attractions are great. It was the best I’ve ever seen. The exhibits at the hayride and the motel were so professional, it was like a Hollywood set. Very impressed.
Erie, PA also had a Haunt that has been open for 3 years now. Eeriebyss: Factory of Terror. 2 levels of fear and fun. A no touch haunted house.
I been to pennhurst asylum it’s amazing n super scary. My boyfriend and I run a haunt together called shockwalk haunted trail the month of October every Friday and saturday. Ove the super scary fun:)

Bates Motel and Haunted Hayride
1835 Middletown Road, Glen Mills, PA 19342
For 28 years, the Haunted Hayride at Arasapha Farm has been scaring its visitors with amazing props, digital FX, great actors and extraordinary professional makeup. The Hayride has been featured several times on the Travel Channel and has been rated as the Number 1 Haunted Attraction in America by Hauntworld Magazine, USA Today and many other national publications. The Haunted Hayride is a 25 minute, action packed, heart pounding ride through the dark forest of Arasapha Farm, located just outside of Philadelphia PA, and is filled with huge, detailed sets, giant monsters and more pyrotechnics than a Kiss concert. With scenes like a 100’ foot long, 40 foot tall drive thru insane asylum, a full scale mockup of a New England church and a 200 foot long cave, the Haunted Hayride is an amazing example of Hollywood style sets and props. We have added several new, huge scenes for this season that will blow away the competition! These jaw dropping scenes are guaranteed to strike fear in the bravest of souls! And then there are the scares. With over 75 actors and 25 scenes, it is no wonder why this event is always on the “top 13” national lists of the best haunted attractions.

630 Harmony Road, Hallstead, PA 18822
There had stood a great house in the center of the gardens where now was left on that fragment of ruin. This house had been empty for a great while; years before his- the ancient man's - birth. It was a place shunned by the people of the village as it had been shunned by their fathers before them. There were many things said about it and all were evil. No one ever went near it, either by day or night. In the village it was a synonym of all that is unholy and dreadful.
– WILLIAM HOPE HODGSON (1877-1917) FROM THE HOUSE ON THE BORDERLAND
