Enter our attraction along a dark, winding, dirt road, surrounded by haunted woods. If you are brave, roll down your windows to take in the night's stale air... but Beware! From the moment you arrive on Kersey Valley property you are fair game to each and every haunted creature residing here. You will encounter special effects of light, sound, smell, claustrophobia, dense atmosphere, air pressure and may come in contact with liquid substances. Leave your best pair of sneaks at home, but bring a extra pair of undies!

Terror Behind the Walls, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Terror Behind the Walls consists of six haunted attractions that create a seamless experience for visitors. All six attractions are included in one admission price. As they enter Terror Behind the Walls, visitors will be confronted with a critical decision: should they explore the prison and watch the action, or should they mark themselves to truly interact with the denizens of the cellblocks? Those who opt in for true interactivity may be grabbed, held back, sent into hidden passageways, removed from their group, and even occasionally incorporated into the show. They will deal with the consequences of their decision through six long attractions.
