A prison known for its ghost sightings and notable inmates, the Eastern State Penitentiary takes scary to a whole other level.
The Penitentiary is located on Fairmount Avenue, between Corinthian Avenue and 22nd Street. Admission prices range from $20 to $30 depending on the day of the week.
Nothing sets the mood for a haunted house like a real ghost story, so if you plan to park in the Penitentiary’s parking lot make sure you wait for the Ghost Bus. Each shuttle bus has a storyteller on board to tell you about real Philadelphia ghost sightings.
Come see what the thrill is all about; just try not to scream to loud you wouldn’t want to wake the ghosts.
