Terror Behind the Walls begins with a critical decision: should you explore the prison and watch the action, or should you mark yourself 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.
Deep within the ruins of the prison compound, you discover the camp of a gruesome colony. A path marked with bones leads you deeper into the lair of the butcher, the warriors, and their ancient empress - the forgotten who now reside among the fragments of the lost prison. The beating of the drums becomes louder and louder, faster and faster. Finally you reach the source - a gory site of gnawed bones and decayed flesh. The carnage sends a clear message: you could be next. Hunt or be hunted.
Terrifying Attraction at Eastern State Penitentiary's Terror Behind the Walls, a massive haunted house inside of a real prison.
Inside Quarantine: 4D, you learn of an infectious outbreak, whose symptoms include hallucinations, blurry vision, distorted depth perception, and other mind-altering effects. Flat walls appear to have depth, creatures emerge from (seemingly) nowhere, and some brave visitors will be challenged to face their WORST FEARS.
You enter the looming façade of Cellblock 12, said to be the most haunted location inside the penitentiary. Rioting zombie inmates have taken over, zombie guards have lost control, and the chaotic scene is filled with thick fog and mangled bars. Guests are led to the second floor for an eerie view down the long-abandoned cellblock corridor, and finally through a lineup of zombies, all standing very, very still…. Some visitors leave after Lock Down. It’s that intimidating.
Just when you think you've found freedom, you find yourself in the middle of a prison break! Inmates surround you using every way imaginable to escape, including barrels, ropes, tunnels, ladders and crates. Keep an eye out at every corner, as inmates may even be using YOU to aid in their attempt to gain freedom.
Hidden deep inside the cellblocks is a long-forgotten machine shop. Evil pervades this space – an evil with one mind but with many bodies. Will you survive, or will you become just another cog in the machine?
