Pennhurst Asylum

Attractions

The Pennhurst Haunted attraction includes the Pennhurst Asylum, a hospital themed walk thru attraction featuring many items and artifacts that were part of the original State School. Located on the upper floors of the old Administration building, which dates to 1908, this attraction features a combination of high tech animatronics, digital sound and motivated actors, as well as fine detail and realism. We have added lots of new props, and made many changes for the upcoming season.

The Dungeon of Lost Souls

Features a labyrinth of old cells, drafty halls and a series of human experiments that have gone horribly wrong. This show includes CGI special effects, illusions, great detail and amazing actors.

The Tunnel Terror

The Tunnel Terror attraction takes you through a 900 foot long gauntlet underneath the grounds of the old State School, first named Pennhurst Home for the Feeble Minded and Epileptic. Upgraded with amazing catacombs, new sets and scares, this attraction is guaranteed to produce screams.

    I've been in there 16 years ago before it was an attraction. I have some actual state reports from the 1920's. These are paperback books of the report to the State of the Pennhurst State School dated 1922-1924. The books show how many patients they had, and how many died. They classified each patient as Idiots, Imbecile or Morons. These books are very rare and are 29 pages long. If anyone is interested, I'm asking $50 each. Have fun at the attraction.
