The 3 Best Haunted Houses to Visit near West Chester PA

Trying to take the Halloween fear factor to the next level in the West Chester area this year? Well, you’ve come to the right place. Keep reading to learn about the scariest and most terrifying haunted houses near you.

Bates Motel and Haunted Hayride

If you’re searching “haunted hayrides near me”, look no further because you won’t find anything scarier than the haunted hayride at Bates Motel & Haunted Hayride. As the center-stage attraction and a recipient of several #1 haunted attraction awards, this haunted hayride never disappoints with frightening lifelike props, digital FX and dedicated actors.

While you’re here, be sure to check out the other two equally disturbing attractions, Bates Motel and the Revenge of the Scarecrows Haunted Trail. This trilogy of terror will have you sleeping with a nightlight longer than you’ll care to admit.

Pennhurst Asylum

What makes this haunted asylum attraction especially petrifying is that it was actually once a fully functional asylum. Closed in the 1980s after a century of controversary over the chilling mistreatment of its patients, this asylum came alive again in 2010 with a dual purpose.

By day, you can take an unnerving walk of the asylums grounds to learn its history from someone who worked there in its prime. By night (during the Halloween season), it turns into a show of spook and horror that goes far beyond your silliest nightmares.

The Valley of Fear

So far, we’ve covered the scariest haunted hayride and the scariest haunted asylum in West Chester. Now, get ready for the area’s scariest haunted valley. The Valley of Fear, also known as America’s Most Horrifying Woods, is a festival of sorts that’s made up of four horrifying attractions located in Feasterville, PA.

In addition to the three returning attractions is the all-new Operation Z Lock Down Zombie Escape Adventure. Get sucked into the horrifying fake reality of being on zombie lockdown. Can you make it out alive?

Happy Haunting!

With all these terrifying yet exciting activities to partake in this Halloween season, what are you waiting for? Get out there and get spooked!
