Sunday we decided to hit up Philly since my brother has wanted to go to Terror Behind the Walls, a haunted attraction at Eastern State Pennitentary, a real jail that was closed down in the 70’s. Al Capone is known to have stayed there for his first incarceration. He was arrested for having a gun. The event was a lot of fun and included 5 attractions which all had different haunted themes. Our favorite was the Quartintine 4D which was completly neon, included pop outs and was purposely visually disorienting. Everyone has an option of being interactive or not within the attractions . We chose to be interactive and it was defiantly worth it. By choosing so you can be grabbed by the actors and separated from your group. I definitely would suggest going on the dates that the admission is cheaper like we did. Tickets starts at $19. We bought student tickets which they never checked out student ids. DO NOT buy the pictures they try to persuade you to buy at the end of the event ! You can access them online and save for free.
Prior to arriving to the event which started at 7:30PM . We decided to compare the infamous cheesestakes, Geno’s & Pat’s. I definitely would say I enjoyed Geno’s more. The steak tasted much better and the provolone cheese was less sharp. But Tony Luke’s still triumphs all 🙂
We also visited the Philly Muesum of Art for Pay As You Wish Day, in which we payed about $5 total for all of us while it would normally be around $15/$20. This special event occurs the first Sunday of every month.
