Terror Behind the Walls, America’s largest haunted house, is located inside the massive castle-like walls of Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia, PA. Now in its 22nd year, this extraordinary theatrical production is consistently ranked among the top 10 haunted attractions in the country. In 2013, Terror Behind the Walls runs on select evenings from September 20 through November 9.

Six-foot tall, 300 pound gargoyles named “Frank and Carson” sit atop the 30-foot façade tower of Eastern State Penitentiary during Terror Behind the Walls, Eastern State’s massive Halloween haunted house. The gargoyle couple was designed and constructed specifically for Eastern State Penitentiary by Creative Visions in St. Louis, and the design has never been duplicated.
